I could be mistaken but I think this was the first ornament that Nancy purchased last year!
This cute little girl can't compare to the cutie it was made for!!

Not everyone is willing to place a guard dog up to protect my ornaments, but my gal Nancy will do whatever it takes to make sure they remain safe and sound!! :D

I never realized how everyone decorates with my little creations.

Here's a full length picture of her tree and boy Joanna, it sure looks full!

And here's a close up of the same tree and wow, the snowmen are so
abundant! So even if it's warm outside, she still feels the joy
of building a snowman in her own home!!

One of many entries by Colleen. Here's her main tree...

Geez, Colleen, this is just wonderful to see all these ornaments!
How tall is that tree anyway?

It seems that Colleen also has an auxiliary tree as well!
And it seems that on the day the picture was taken, their Elf on the Shelf was hanging out on the tree!!
I hope he tells Santa how good I've been all year!! :D

Every great designer has collections... ;D well, so does From Nancy's Heart
and there was a time when we did a whole Sweater Collection and
it's one of Colleen's favorites.
You know, they are really quite neat!

And of course, the REAL reason we all celebrate the Christmas Holiday...

Thanks Colleen for your submissions!! They are terrific pictures. :D

Back to Business...

Wow! You may need another tree!! That's so touching that this tree is just filled to the brim!

The top view of the tree. Very nice.

Another close-up. So special. Katie, thanks so much for all your support.

That Angel was one of my first ornaments ever; wow, how amazing!

Ahhh, and here's a more recent snowman, so cute in pink!

I'm Crafting Hungry!

With the Holiday Season upon us, I've been creating new ornaments as I usually do...
but this year, I've seeing snowmen in all sorts of things, especially...


Here's Vanilla Vern.  He's just so happy that the weather outside is frightful; that way he can spend more of his time out and about rather than inside the freezer.  
The little man that turns the light inside the freezer isn't as friendly as some people may think!

Catie Cupcake is all frilly and shiny, and is so happy that it's hip to be glittery!
This season, she put on her best pompoms and is just so excited to be partying this weekend.

Little Sparklin Sammie is just trying to be good so that Santa brings him everything on his wish list.  I think that includes some new sprinkles, and I think a new cherry topping!
Boy, there's so much to wish for this season!!

I have to stop thinking about food and start crafting once again!
Everyone have a great holiday weekend.
I'm Thankful for all my pals!  Be Safe.  :D

Winter Peppermint Adventure!

It's a Marshmellow World in the Winter.... 

Those are some of the words in one of my favorite Christmas songs.  Ah, Dean Martin.  Just brings back so many memories.  Dean Martin playing on the stereo, the Christmas Tree spinning around on it's revolving stand - and I just can not believe it's time to start thinking about it all over again.

At the Etsy Shoppe, November 1st will be the release of some new ornaments, and it will be a Winter Peppermint Adventure!
Below are just a few offerings that will be available for a limited time.

What a wonderful Welcome into the Peppermint Village!!
Here's Frosty just peeking around the candy waiting for you to stop or should I say shop on by!!  The sign on top can be personalized; making yours a "one of a kind".

Peek a Boo, I Love You!
With all that's going on in the world this year, we all need a little more Love and Versatility!
This wonderful piece can go up for Christmas and Stay around until Valentine's Day!
That certainly makes me smile.

Just call him, Pep ' O Stick!
Here's just one more member of the Peppermint Village!
This fellow just loves to hang around and tassel with the other neighbors in the village!
With a heart warming smile and all that peppermint accent, he too is a winner for the two holiday award!

So remember to circle NOVEMBER 1st on the Calendar and get ready for some peppermint twist.  :D

The Colors of Fall

Ok, Fall has officially arrived.  
I type this as the temperature has brought us back to those of the summer!!

But I must admit that it is a very colorful time.  
As I was walking around my neighborhood, seeing the pumpkins and mums out on the doorsteps; the festive atmosphere is starting to build for the winter holidays.

Did I say winter?  Nooooo!  Not yet!  
Being a creative person, I must think so far ahead to keep up with all the festivities that are soon to arrive.

Here are just a few items that I've chose to feature here, that I currently have listed at my Etsy Shoppe!

Leaves Abound with this wonderful wreath ornament.  It's so unique and I just love making it with the terrific color combinations!

Wonderful jeweled colored lolli's are the next item featured!  They are glazed to a perfect shine for the wonderful fall wreath or even if you dare... tree!!
They were a custom order for a customer... I loved them so much I decided to make another set and name them after her... so here are Carrie's Delights!

Here's Candy!
Yes, as you can see she's holding her favorite fall veggie, Candy Corn!!  But Candy also has a wonderful friend with her, Jeffrey.  He's trained and a perfect companion!

Coming over the weekend... a great Bouquet that GLOWs in the DARK!!
Do you dare??!!  :D

End of Summer Vacation

I find myself in a very fortunate position - enjoying the last "un-official" days of summer, sunning by the ocean; listening to the crashing waves.
Today, my sister asked (mind you as we were both sitting on the beach), "why do people just sit and watch the ocean, like it's a tv?"
I told her, "I don't know, Jo. All I know is that I do it and it's just an amazing show."

To me it's heaven. How many of us have this same sort of feeling watching something of meaning in our lives. What is yours? Let me know. I would be very interested!
