It's beginning to look a lot like...



There are two kinds of people in this world. There are those who get utterly psyched when they see an all out blitz of Holiday stuff in the first week of November. And there are the other ones who just want to scream: "TOO SOON!" 
And If you read this blog, we'd guess you are most likely one of the psyched individuals. I've been looking back through my Instagram feed at all the pics from last Holiday season. It was months of non-stop production line style work over here. Ornaments galore! Cutting and sanding, and glittering, and packing. Some of the longest days ever. Sure, it was exhausting, and the whole season was pretty much a whirlwind…but we loved it, and it seemed like it was over in the blink of an eye. So now all of the sudden it is that time of year again! We are trying to get a jump on things. We spent the last few days splitting our time between working on current orders, and finishing up the prototypes of our ornament offerings for this year. We are so excited about all the new designs! And of course some of our best selling classics are back! 


We've got Pizza slices! plain or pepperoni. And if you are vegan...we'll send you a daiya cheese, and veg pepperoni version! (wink wink)


A trio of macarons


Of course we have donuts


Yep...Pancakes! Who wouldn't want these on the tree?! They bring to mind cozy Sunday mornings with the family. Perfect for the holiday season.


Kitty cats! We just launched these 24 hours ago, and already we are blown away by the response! Lots and lots of Kitties will be on their way to new homes.


Our classic vintage inspired "cardboard" houses. (with glittery accents…which you can't see in the photo…but the glitter makes them magical.)


And another classic ornie…our cherry topped cupcakes! These come as a set of 4 just like the houses.


We have a bunch more coming over the next few days, and we are bringing back our Starlets as well! We are so excited! Can't wait to share them with you guys!





We've also been working on lots of diecuts around here! The most popular right now are the Donuts. 



And apparently the cold weather has been the cause of lots of pizza cravings. We're shipping a bunch of these!



It never gets old to us seeing stacks of pizza boxes and bakery boxes.

We are really looking forward to the holiday hustle. We just ordered a bunch of supplies and made lots of lists. And from what I've been seeing online…most of our maker/crafter friends are feeling the holiday buzz! I'm loving all of the fun previews of whats to come in the handmade world this season! I look forward to buying lots of handmade gifts this year! 

Are you working on any holiday designs? Getting supplies together for December Daily albums? Planning cookie baking recipes? 
I'd love to hear about what you've been doing in preparation of the holidays. 

Thanks for popping in!!

    1. I think crafters and artists are always into early Christmas displays… many of us make things and need the inspiration and extra time. Also many sell at holiday shows so we have to get a jump on things. I haven't started with my Christmas music yet… maybe next week! ha!! And thank you so so much!! XO

  5. I am definitely psyched! Haha. We were at Target back in September, and they already had a few things out on one aisle, and I bought a couple of holiday things. Normally, I don't buy that much...I try to re-use what we have or buy vintage stuff or make things myself, but I just couldn't help myself! So, yeah, I'm definitely in the "not too early" camp. I'm working on prototypes too right now for my shop, and actually will probably be working non-stop between now and Christmas, but I don't mind at all.

    By the way, I love all of your ornaments! xoxo

  6. Hi...I'm having trouble ordering the pizza and doughnut ornaments. It doesn't say "add to cart." Am I missing something? I love these! Must have...

    1. Hi! It's possible that you may have missed the option button on those listings. Down on the bottom there will be a button to choose either plain or pepperoni…or on the donuts it's pink or chocolate. Hopefully this is the issue. Let us know! Thanks again!

    2. There are actually two "options" bars for both the pizza and doughnuts, but when I make my choice, there is no "add to cart" bar.
      Btw, just got part of a previous order(cake slice, cupcake and vanilla bottle)this week. OMG!!! LOVE!! My kitchen looks so adorable now. You both are so talented!
