Announcement   *** PLEASE NOTE for 2017 Holiday orders*** Due to circumstances, this year my SHOP WILL BE CLOSED NOVEMBER & DECEMBER 2017. This traditionally is when 75%-80% of my orders are placed by customers wanting ornaments to gift for the holidays. So please, If you would like an ornament completed and shipped in time for Christmas 2017; I ask that you CONTACT ME NOW so I can assure a spot for you on my very limited calendar!

I appreciate you looking at my home replica ornament examples and invite you to send me a convo requesting a custom listing be setup for you.

**Please, do not purchase one of the example listings I have on my site -- these only serve as examples of my work so you can see the quality. :)

As apparent by my ornament examples, I attempt (working entirely by hand) to get these absolutely perfect for my customers.

With the time each ornament takes me to craft and trying to balance that with being stay at home Momma to 5 small children; my calendar becomes limited especially around Christmas when my kiddos need me for holiday festivities and demand for my homes is so high.

I allow on average 2 days on my calendar per ornament; once my weekday slots are filled during my peak season, I try to offer a few "rush production" slots for which I charge an additional fee (for my weekend/evening time) to customers who want their ornaments guaranteed a postmark prior to Christmas... these are limited to what my schedule allows and available first come first serve to those who desire them.

If you are interested in an ornament for Christmas this year, I invite you to visit with me about availability to reserve your spot. I reach a tipping point where I do have to decline sells at the end of the year to customers wanting completion by that Christmas as I simply cannot fulfill everyone's request, but if I can work you in my calendar at all; I will attempt to do so!

Again, Please note: The listings I have shown on my shop are NOT FOR PURCHASE, only there to serve as examples of my work and pricing. ***PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE A LISTING UNLESS IT IS UNDER YOUR NAME, and we have convo'd about the specifics of your order! :)


***** "LIKE" my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/FourbyBay to receive special offers and periodic coupon codes for my ornaments; as well as enter to win a gift certificate for a free ornament from time to time! *****

My Custom House Ornaments are made from the highest quality oven-baked Polymer Clay. The miniatures average approximately 4-6 inches and range in thickness from 1/4 to 1/2 inch. I finish each home with a glaze to protect them from any chipping or scratching.

My turn-around time averages less than 1 week throughout the year but increasing during the final months of the year due to high demand.

I package your handcrafted minature home in beautiful wrapping which is gift-ready, complete with ribbon and tag.

This came earlier than expected and was FABULOUS! Such a great present for my Christmas-loving best friend who just bought her first house. The banner along the bottom was beautiful, and all of the details were wonderful. Thank you!!

My fiancé and I sold our first home and having a custom ornament made was the perfect way to always remember it. When it arrived it was more beautiful than I could have imagined! The detail blew me away! Angie sent me pictures during the process and was very responsive. This was a great shopping experience. I will definitely be ordering one of my new home!

This is the 3rd ornament I've purchased from Angie. All have been exceptional! This one was an ornament of my daughter's school & is a gift to a retiring teacher. It will be treasured!

About

Custom Created Home Replica Ornaments

Four by Bay came about while my husband and I were building our new home for our family and found ourselves "just nearly" in the new place by Christmas...only it was lacking a few unfinished details so we could not close and move in before the holidays as we had all hoped.

By 6 months of building we were getting homesick and anxious to be in our new house, so for a present to my husband I decided to make him a model ornament of our new place.
Considering that we couldn't quite make the deadline of enjoying Christmas in our new home yet, my thoughts were at least I could give him a small version of the house we were working so hard to build.

He absolutely loved it, our new house minature turned out so well I immediately had friends asking me to create home minatures for them as well, and I was encouraged by several to try selling these through an Etsy site....

And so it all began!

I truly enjoy every element of creating these for my clients. With each piece, I pour time and love into capturing the details of a home that make it special and memorable to those requesting the minatures.

It is an honor to humbly use the talent God has given me to make these for others.

I thank-you for visiting my Etsy store, and welcome any feedback or questions you might have about my house minatures!
