From Family Tradition Springs a Business

When I was a toddler my parents left crayons and pencils lying around. When I drew pictures on the walls, they bought me sketch pads. When I drew pictures, my mom and her siblings fought over them. When I got bored, my uncle--may he rest in peace--took me to art museums. When I was in grad school, studying for a doctorate in biology, and had no money for Christmas gifts, my mom bought some clear glass ornaments and suggested that I paint unique ornaments for the family. The ornaments became a family tradition.

One year, I gave my brother an ornament commemorating his fraternity, and he suggested that I start a business. When I balked, he insisted. When I still resisted, he recruited another uncle and my husband to encourage me. My dad brought it all together when he suggested an online business. He always told my brother and me to make sure we chose a profession we enjoyed, because we'd be working for a mighty long time. And since I enjoyed painting ornaments, no matter how many I had to do, I finally decided to give it a shot. I got licensing for several sororities and one fraternity, and FMH Collectibles was born.

This is a second job/business, but it is my first love and one of the ways I relax. Thank you for the opportunity to share my gift.

Thank you for reading my policies. I have been handpainting ornaments for almost 15 years and look forward to adding one to your decor! Although some ornaments are simply my artistic expressions, I got started by creating ornaments tailored toward family members' personalities, so I welcome custom orders.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Credit cards/Etsy Direct Checkout, Etsy Gift Cards, and PayPal are accepted.

Maryland residents: a 6% sales tax will be added to your order.
I charge a little more for my shipping because I pack the ornaments well enough to withstand a carrier's worse day. That extra packing adds a little more weight.

All items are shipped via U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail. Allow up to 5 days for delivery. Rush delivery is available through UPS (additional charges will apply). Please contact me if you need rush delivery.

For custom orders, please allow 5 days for initial sketches and 5 days for the ornament to be produced.

Most of the Greek ornaments are made to order. Please allow up to 5 days extra for creation and delivery of the ornament.

Production/customization/shipping time begins from the time payment is received.
Refunds and Exchanges
Items can be returned for refund or exchange within 7 days of receipt of purchase. I'm sorry I cannot provide refunds or exchanges for custom orders or customized/personalized items.

Knock on wood, I have never had an ornament arrive broken. However, if your ornament is damaged upon arrival, please contact me immediately. I will create a replacement and ship it to you at no additional charge.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome custom orders. I am also open to bulk orders--convo me and we can discuss.

Fraternity/sorority ornaments are made to order and usually take about three to five days from the time payment is received. I will notify you if your order will take longer. Other ornaments are one of a kind, but if you want multiples of a particular design, contact me.

At present I am a licensed vendor for the following fraternities and sororities:

Alpha Chi Omega
Alpha Delta Pi
Alpha Gamma Delta
Alpha Omicron Pi
Alpha Phi
Chi Omega
Delta Delta Delta
Delta Gamma
Delta Tau Delta
Delta Zeta
Gamma Phi Beta
Kappa Alpha Theta
Kappa Delta
Kappa Kappa Gamma
Kappa Kappa Psi
Phi Delta Theta
Phi Mu
Sigma Lambda Gamma
Sigma Phi Epsilon
Sigma Sigma Sigma
Tau Beta Sigma
Zeta Tau Alpha

I accept custom design requests (for example, if you want a personalized ornament for your daughter who is a member of Alpha Delta Pi). However, to avoid copyright infringement, I am unable to accommodate custom requests for organizations other than the ones on this list. In addition, I do not paint fraternity or sorority crests.

I add new organizations, based on demand, at the time of license renewal (around mid-summer).
