    Ornaments are memories of the future~

    I was born in December during a snowstorm, and was always creating and making messes as a child, hence my nickname was Stormy. That creative spirit has been raging through me for many years. It started years ago when I would make ornaments with my mother and siblings to hang on our tree. I continued the tradition with my sons and I have a wonderful collection of ornaments with memories of the past. Once I learned about spun cotton ornaments , I fell in love with them. I researched for months , and worked hard in my studio to develop my method of making the adorable figures.

    I enjoy working with the cotton and making the armatures, there is no limit to what can be created . Years ago I made sculptures out of recycled wood pieces and I was limited to what I could create by the wood shape.

    Ornaments are something that you take out and treasure during the season, and can help you preserve memories of wonderful Christmases spent with family and friends. It makes me happy to make my ornaments for others , so that they can treasure them for generations to come.

    Frequently asked questions
    About Spun Cotton Ornaments

    They were for feather trees in Germany in the late 1800's to early 1900's. Germany was known then for their beautiful glass mercury ornaments. The glass ornaments were very fragile and many broke , especially if the family had young children. So a cottage industry was born, as women started making ornaments of raw cotton. The cotton is wrapped or spun around an armature then painted or embellished with fabric or crepe paper.
    They are rare to find due to the fact that children played with them.
    The ornaments were hung on feather trees, that were made with goose feathers. The trees were small and were displayed on tables.
