I recently finished up an order of custom new home ornaments for one of my customers…this was actually the second set I’ve done for her. She is a realtor, and wanted to give her customers some dated  ornaments featuring her own cross stitching as a thank you gift for their business…so she contacted me! She already had all of the materials, including the cross stitching, and knew exactly how she wanted the ornaments made, so she boxed it all up and sent it to me.

I actually forgot to take a photo of the “2010” cross stitching pieces before I created the ornaments, but here is an example of the cross stitching used:

The fabrics and lace trims she sent me were country themed, and she wanted the cross stitching of a home on one side, and the date on the other. Here are the finished ornaments, ready to go into gift boxes with a dated card, personalized with her own cross stitching, and perfect for giving her customers.

All boxed up and ready for gift giving!

    I love the messy craft table in the back. In fact, I’m wishing those boxes weren’t there (although they are lovely) to get a better look at your ribbon stash. My ribbon cabinet is full to capacity but I don’t have a business like you do….yet? Much success to you. I love to see all the new things you have made. I still have to see the rest of the 12 days ornaments! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

      Happy New Year to you, too! I fell short by 3 posts, for the 12 Days of Christmas ornaments project. December was a hectic month, between keeping up with orders, and the blog….on Christmas Eve, I finally just needed to stop and take a break. BUT, I am still going to finish them…they are just going to be a little late…and I will continue to post more DIY’s throughout the year. I never stop making ornaments. :)
