HOLIDAY CATALOG ORNAMENTS-- NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!

Well, the time has come and I'm busy creating special ornaments nonstop (it seems!) for two special catalogs this year!  I've been creating for Uno Alla Volta for about ten years now!   You should definitely check out their catalog--some beautiful offerings from artisans around the world!  

THIS YEAR I have a new account, Artful Home!  Yesterday I shipped their initial order of 50 cardinals and 50 angels, which they have named "Seraphim"!  I love that name, don't you?  I'm excited to share some new creations for them and to establish a new working relationship with such a beautiful catalog!

It occurred to me that you might find it interesting how I actually pack the ornaments for shipping.  Below is an image showing how I carefully place each ornament on a cardboard backing and then tape the heck out of it to keep them from moving or hitting each other!!  lol  Then, loads of bubble wrap and peanuts later, VOILA!  The box is ready to ship!  Yesterday, it took two boxes....

Here's to a busy and beautiful holiday season!
