The whole design process is pretty haphazard. I always add a bird so the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak is our 20th bird. Bill and I are birders, totally love bird watching and painting birds comes easily to me.

The Teddy Bear Sled was Bill’s idea. So I came up with this little fellow.

Poor little reject

What I didn’t realize is that Bill really wanted the bear to be sitting. So reject that poor bear and start anew. I was not thrilled at the time, but I’m pretty happy with the end result.

The Shepherds ornament is the result of years of hoping to come up with something and finally just doing it. We’ve needed a companion ornament to go with the Nativity and Three Wise Men, and this works just fine.

And finally, the New House ornament is for just that. Customers often ask what I would recommend for “First Year in Our New Home”, that sort of gift. So now we have this New House. It would work well also for “From our house to yours” or “Hearts come home at Christmas” or “I’ll be home for Christmas”. If you need a house ornament, now we’ve got it covered!

Yay! New ornaments are done and designed for this year! That is a big deal for me. If you have an idea for an ornament you’d like to see, let me know. It just might happen!

Now onto painting on wood. Keep warm and stay tuned.
