These awesome ornies came from a wonderful artist. These ornaments just blew me away when I saw them...they are awesome and bout made me cry! Beveled circle glass ornies with each of my baby doggies on them including their names! At the top says "Merry Christmas" and the bottom "Happy New Year". I just can't believe how awesome they are!!!

By Popular Demand ~ Snowman Tangled in Lights!!!

I have had so many requests for the finished version of my Snowman Stump Tangled in Lights pattern. I tend to be very busy and don't have much time for special orders anymore...so...I decided to get one finished and get him listed on ebay! He is actually a mini version of the original. This will be the only Tangled in Lights snowman that I will make this year!



Click the pic above to check out the ebay auction! We started the price low so everyone could get in on it!

Again...this is the ONLY finished Snowman Tangled in Lights that we will make this year.

YAY! I finally took some time to make a new ornie! I REALLY love the way they turned out! I usually do a lot of detail with my items but the simplicity of this one made a big impact for me!

I have listed both the finished ornies as well as the pattern for them on ebay!

It's Time to Swap Ornies!

It's that time of year everyone! Christmas Ornie Swappin!

While many of you may already be involved in many different swaps (as I am too)...I also would like to invite you to do a personal handmade ornie swap with me! If you are interested in doing a swap with me, just send an email to auntmannys@aol.com with your address and let me know if we have swapped in the past (so I dont accidentally duplicate an ornie for you).

I do these swaps year round but closer to Christmas I try to get as many swappers as I can.

There are no rules or deadlines for this swap. This is not a group swap. Just a one on one ornie swap between you and me. Doesn't have to be anything extravagant, just a simple handmade ornie from the heart!

I have been swapping for years and my Christmas tree is decorated with nothing but your ornies you have swapped with me over the years... :)

Thinking Outside the Box ~ A New Halloween Offering!

I have been wanting to do this for such a long time and just didn't get around to it. I finally made myself sit and follow through finally and oh my gosh am I glad I did! This Halloween Corpse Skull was soooo much fun to make! It will be going on ebay tonight for a seven day auction...so keep your eyes peeled! (pun intended) hehe.







So...now that I have completed this task, it inspired me to plan a few other spooky ideas (hopefully to be deployed much quicker than the corpse skull idea). I plan to make up a few of my grungy old coffin ornies and corpse up some of the miniature skeletons I have laying around here for an awesome Halloween prop!

I hope you all enjoy and are preparing for the upcoming Holiday and season!

MISSING IN ACTION!

Oh my....it has certainly been awhile since i've posted and thank you to all that sent me comments and emails inquiring about my wellness.

I am happy to inform you all that i am definately alive and well...this holiday season just threw me through a loop.

Business was crazy and im finally starting to catch up. I want to say a late Merry Christmas to all and I hope you had a wonderful holiday! Happy new year to you as well!

I have patterns that have been requested that I will be working on as soon as I get everything caught up. I made a new Christmas snowman this year that i didnt even get the chance to list because its been so crazy!

To add to the chaos, my computer died a couple of weeks ago! I did get a new one and am in the midst of transferring all of my important items from the old drive to the new....whew!

So, I apologize for being gone so long and again, thank you to those that sent your well wishes and inquiries...it really means a lot and I very much appreciate your support! You are what keeps me going!

New items to come soon so as soon as I get them out there, I will get them posted here for ya. Hopefully I wont be gone so long now!
