Please feel free to contact me with any ideas or suggestions. Is there a Christmas decoration you wish I had, that you don't see? Let me know; perhaps I can start carrying it, or at least make one custom just for you! Is there another fandom you wish was included? Let me know, maybe I can address that! Do you want one of my designs in a different format (I.e. do you want something you see, but not on a Christmas ornament, but on, say, a couch pillow or a sachet instead?) Let me know what you want it on, and perhaps I can make it like that!

Thanks so much for visiting my shop! Have an amazing day! :)

Handmade Christmas Tree Ornaments

I love making handmade Christmas ornaments. Crafting, especially sewing, relaxes me. I have made so many Christmas tree ornaments, in fact, that my husband claims that our 9-foot Christmas tree doesn't show any green! He says it's going to fall through the floor from being so heavy with ornaments! Although I did buy a second (and later a third & fourth), smaller tree, still, they are all chock full of ornaments! And I keep making/buying more!

My husband, my daughter, and others started encouraging me (nagging me) to start an Etsy shop. I had all kinds of excuses. My items weren't good enough, I didn't have time, it was so much trouble to figure out all the rules, etc. But, over time, they gradually wore me down (like erosion turns rocks into sand). They talked me out of all my excuses, and so here we are! I started my shop.

Although I have several items listed right now, I am already working on the next one, and although I keep thinking I will one day get caught up, I always have more ideas than I have time to sew them! But in the meantime, I will fill my shop with as many wonderful, fun, quirky, Christmasy, delightful items as you guys will enjoy and (hopefully) purchase!

After several successful years, I decided to revamp my shop and give it a new name.. If you were looking for Holly & Her Hobbies, you've come to the right place; it's still me, even though my shop's new name is Blue Raccoon Designs. Were you looking for an ornament that is no longer listed? Chances are I can still make it for you. Just message me with what you want and I can set up a custom listing just for you! I LOVE to do custom orders!

Thanks for visiting Blue Raccoon Designs! Happy shopping, and have an amazing day!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Christmas ornaments don't usually need to be washed, and my ornaments are not made to withstand washing in a washing machine. If for some reason yours needs to be washed, and you try it, use cold water, and hang it somewhere to air dry it. I don't guarantee it to survive a washing, however, but those are some tips in case you decide to try it.

Are your ornaments made in a smoke-free environment?

Yes, all my ornaments and fabric are stored and used in a smoke-free environment.

Are your ornaments made in a pet-free environment?

My ornaments are made in my home which is owned by my cat. Or at least she thinks she owns the place! Lol. Although the cat is not allowed on the fabric, she does occasionally sit on my lap or on the back of my chair as I sew ornaments.

How long do you take to ship my order?

-All items are hand made & take time. Please allow time for this when you order.
-All items shipped within 5 business days of your order, except some custom and/or quantity orders.
-All orders made & shipped in the order they were received, unless I have it in stock.

How can I get my order moved to the front of the line?

-To be moved to the front of the line, buy the expedited shipping option in my shop. Please read the details on that listing, because it may make a difference in the price. Here is the link:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/258982440/expedited-shipping?ref=shop_home_active_1

How long does it take to receive my order once you ship it?

-Most items shipped USPS, which typically takes 3 business days to US locations, with the exception of the expedited shipping option.

If I want a custom order made in time for Christmas, how early should I order?

-No custom orders taken between the dates of December 1-25. Personalization, i.e., putting a name &/or date on an ornament, does not count as a custom order; I am happy to do that anytime. If you want a custom order, please order early to ensure that I have time to craft it for you with care.

What is the very last date I can order and still receive it by Christmas?

-Orders received during December 18-25 will not ship til December 26 or later (they would not arrive by Christmas, anyway, & that gives me time to celebrate Christmas with my family.
-If your order was received before December 18, I will do my best to finish & ship in the hopes of it arriving by Christmas, but I do NOT guarantee Christmas delivery on any order. Please order early to ensure arrival by Christmas.

I have another question not listed here.

-Any questions not addressed here, please convo me, & I will be happy to address them personally.
