I am an (orna) mental case…
…in fact, I live and breathe Christmas ornaments. I started my website (6 years ago now!) to share the quilted ornaments that my mother taught me to make when I was about 15 years old. My ornaments have since been featured on blogs and in magazines all over the world. Now, you will not only find all kinds of handmade ornaments, but also ornament patterns, tutorials, and DIY’s.
Aside from all the ornament stuff, I am… well, a complete girly girl, kinda crafty, mixed with a dash of ditziness, and an even bigger dash of klutziness. I can sometimes be found guiltily reading cheesy romance novels by flashlight while hiding under my covers, and thanks to my kids, I can recite most episodes of iCarly by heart. Just like my four sisters, many of my words end up becoming dramatic song (I pity the fool who gets stuck with all of us together)…unfortunately for those around me, singing is only among the talents I possess when I’m driving. I love reading and writing and most definitely not arithmetic.
I love creating things with my hands, although my nails hate me for it. My habit of saying “I could totally MAKE that!” always seems to lead to huge projects involving a lot more time and money than if I had just bought the stupid thing from the store in the first place. But in those instances that I come up with something that I think is pretty awesome, I write DIY’s and tutorials and share them here. I also share recipes that I love, CHRISTMAS CHRISTMAS CHRISTMAS stuff, and new ornament designs from my shop. I really appreciate you being here…contact me anytime!
