I am a lover of the holidays, but not the holiday stress…as I’m sure you are too! 😊 Part of what I love about the holidays is a lot of the cheer that runs around, so I’ve been making a bunch of holiday gifts with that in mind for the people in my life, as well as a few custom ornament orders. I was even getting into full holiday mood with “Santa Baby” playing through my head…and then it hit me—I really should just share these custom holiday goodies as an option in the shop!
My love of lettering on wood slices started with my wood slice garden signs (the ones I fondly dub “fairy wands” in house, because, I mean, look at them!). Shortly after they came out, a wonderful customer wanted a specialty edition for his backyard full of beautiful trees and plants. We worked together to create a hanging edition—bigger slices, strung from jute twine. I really enjoyed making these!
Since my focus is always lettering (and watercolor), I started making a few more of these custom for some family members, such as the bible quote edition you can see here dangling from a family members’ mantle. ❤️
After that, it seemed only natural I bring the larger hanging version to the shop as an ornament edition. For these, I’ve added the option of a painted background, and the choices for phrasing are endless. “Merry Christmas,” “Merry and Bright,” “Holiday Spirit,” “Happy Hanukkah,” “Joy,” “Mr. and Mrs. [Family Name],” “[Family Name] Est. [Year],” and on and on. Just making a few more as samples, I felt the joy and wanted to start hanging them around my house!
These holiday wood slice ornaments just dropped in the shop today, and bonus, they ship free in the U.S. with standard shipping. Yes! If you’re ordering for Christmas, be sure to order yours by 12/15 to ensure they’ll make it via standard USPS shipping on time.
I hope you love these cuties as much as me! 😊 And also that you’re enjoying some holiday spirit at this crazy time.
Are you a holiday spirited person? Do you decorate? Or do you tend to keep it pretty low key this time of year? I’d love to know.
And in the meantime, thank you for reading! Happy (almost) holidays!
