‘Tis the season to place orders, falalalalaa-lala-lala.
My waxed ornament inventory went from this:
to this during the Wilder Mansion Holiday Market.
I am thrilled the angels and frosties are gaining popularity, but for you regulars it means that if you want to gift these to your loved ones, you need to contact me now.
I’ll be bending and waxing for Small Business Saturday before Thanksgiving.
After Turkey Fest I will be popping up at a yet-to-be announced location (you’ll like it!) along with replenishing Blue Buddha Boutique stock and preparing for the Bucktown Holiday Market.
That’s a lot of studio time spent on non-custom orders, so get yourself penciled in while you can!
I’m printing out a variety of holiday songs and verses that inspire me.
I’m happy to learn that Love Came Down at Christmas is in the public domain, since I was introduced to it via Jars of Clay. I’ll adorn some angels with that poem by Christina Rossetti.
Last year a friend had me create birthstone angels and frosties with the name of her grandchild and the year the ornament was gifted. Such a fabulous idea.
The colors were specified by grandma based on her family’s preferences.
They also got a note with what each birthstone means.
I can also incorporate logos into a design.
My double-heart frosties sell out each year.
This cutie went to celebrate a young couple’s first married Christmas together.
Of course you’re not stuck with angels and snowmen. I have plenty of alternate options available too:
So put your thinking cap on and consider your family’s favorite holiday songs, verses, quotes, colors and aesthetic, and let me know if my ornaments are a match for their tree!
You can poke around my past posts for additional inspiration.
