Getting a head start

Just out of the kiln - my first custom painted portrait ornament of the 2011 Christmas Holiday Season!!

The bride and groom looking quite happy to be man and wife...

The ornament ~ drawn, painted and ready to be fired. 

The finished ornament ~ fresh out of the kiln, ready to be packaged and shipped.  Whew, working on this ornament made the holidays seem much too close ~ especially when the summer heat is still baking our plants!  But then, I guess not everyone waits until the last moment to do their holiday shopping ~ unlike yours truly.  Therefore, Merry Christmas in July!


  1. How fun!!! The bride and groom will certainly smile each year when they pull out the ornament to decorate for the holidays! ~Val

  2. Val - I certainly hope this will become a treasured keepsake. Thank you for your comment.
