Announcement   HI! And thanks for visiting. And while your here, have fun browsing the unique collection of ornaments that I make out of light bulbs. They are all hand made on a standard A19 light bulb, approx. 4" tall, it will reach , maybe 5" after tinsel and ribbon. After the fabric is affixed and painted as needed, the glitter is applied. I then give it a quick spray of a clear gloss, protective coating, which not only makes it a little more durable, but it also keeps the glitter from falling off. So your special ornament will be just as lovely for many years to come. Although very durable, your ornament is still breakable as it is a light bulb, so packaging is important. Wrapped in sturdy tissue, it is then placed in a bubble pocket for extra protection. I try to re-use and recycle gently used bubbles and boxes for it's final destination to you! The tinsel colors can be changed, so if you like another color, let me know. All silver topped ornaments can also be done with gold, if you choose. I also have red, green, royal blue, teal, purple, hot pink & black tinsels available. If you"d like another color, please contact me. Not all of my ornaments have been changed yet to reflect the tinsel colors available. The ornament stands are not included in your purchase, but a complimentary ornament hanger is included with every purchase. I have over 100 ornaments in total , although not all are listed yet. If your interested is something other than what I'm showing, or you want more than one or two, please contact me. And most can be personalized free of charge! Personalization includes a name of 6-7 letters (looks best), and is painted on the reverse side of the ornament in black, to better show up under the glitter! (personalized ornaments are made to order) There's something for everyone. If you have any other questions, please ask!

About

Unique handmade 1-of-a-kind gifts, there's something for everyone!

I've been creating since I was small, painting faces on rocks, making doll clothes out of little slips of cloth, making jewelry, etc....
I played around with my sewing machine but never really loved to sew, although I do have a great love of fabrics!
I ended up with lots of different materials and started making crafts and ornaments to sell at local craft fairs, for family and friends, and also to give as gifts.
As well as working with fabrics, I also love to paint. On rocks mostly! (Haunted houses are a favorite!) , and many of my projects have some form of painting involved!
The items I create make unique, 1-of-a-kind home decorations, especially the seasonal items, which can be used for each holiday or 'season'. They also make great Christmas tree ornaments, and also, if personalized with baby's name and date of birth, for example, a wonderfully sentimental keepsake. The ornaments are fragile, yet durable, and will last for many years!
. Although it took a long time for me to part with some of my creations, I believe opening my etsy shop has made me even more creative. I now am exploring lots of other avenues! So stay tuned....

Thanks for visiting. I love to create special items. There's something for everyone!!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I will be happy to accept check or money order by mail,
PayPal for credit card orders. And now accept direct checkout. Orders will be shipped after payment is received. (for check & money order)
Payment will be refunded on any cancelled order, provided it is not a customized order, and has'nt shipped yet.
Shipping
I will usually ship within 3-5 days after receiving your order. Your order will be shipped via the United States Postal Service. (Orders are most often shipped First Class Parcel with a tracking number.) My Christmas shipping deadline is December 17th, as I also work away from home and cannot guarantee delivery by Christmas:(

I am a big recycler and often use gently-used packing materials (and sometimes boxes) for shipping.

Please know that I will package your order with tender loving care. Each ornament is wrapped in a sturdy hand stamped tissue, tied with a pretty ribbon, and placed snuggly in a bubble pocket for safekeeping until it arrives to you. A complimentary ornament hanger is included with each ornament!

Refunds and Exchanges
I have taken care to show the designs and colors in close up photos, but please take into consideration that settings on computer screens vary and may cause the image to appear slightly different in color than the actual colors on the ornament. Some designs may vary due to the images on some of the fabrics. (for instance left or right facing).
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, just return it to me for a refund of the purchase price!
Any item that arrives broken, will, of course be replaced. Just let me know. No refunds on personalized items!

Additional policies and FAQs
Personalization is done on the back side of the bulb, and is in black paint. Please note: lighter colors do not show up well under the glitter.
