Family Portrait Ornaments

Family Portrait Ornaments

I get asked about these guys every year, and every year I say “nope, sorry, maybe next time.” Well, I happened to notice that the last time I said “sure! let’s do it!” was 2009. Six years!

So I thought long and hard about it, and decided that as long as I don’t over-book myself, I should be able to handle doing a batch of them this year.

Now, since I have gotten requests from lots of people over the years, and since I only plan on making a very small number, I want the ordering process to be fair and for everyone to have ample notice before I start accepting orders.

To that end, I have chosen Monday, November 30th (Cyber Monday) as Ornament Day. At Noon (EST) the order form will appear on the ornament page, and will be visible for as long as there are open slots.

If you’ve ordered ornaments from me in the past, you should know that I’m making one small change to the way they’re made: I will no longer be using doll hair. The ornaments will now be 100% clay, as you can see by my unbaked family above (I made that one in 2012 – time for an update, I think.)

I’m excited to be doing this again, and am hoping I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew, LOL!

If you want to be emailed a reminder on Ornament Day, you can join the mailing list:

I’ll be deleting the list once it has served its purpose, so you don’t have to worry about getting spammed or anything 🙂

Thanks for pestering me about this every year, LOL!
