Are you playing Christmas Music Yet?

Last week was sort of slow, I guess everyone was out voting, so I've been playing with the button machine. Putting some small gift things together for an upcoming holiday market.

In the past, I have sublimated ceramic coasters, and porcelain ornaments. And I really like how they look. I wanted something that was less likely to be damaged if someone drops the item.

Lightweight, less fragile, very kid or pet friendly, and fully functional.

So I made a set of cat coasters.



the back is covered with cork to protect your furniture.



Then I made a set of Fruit Coasters.



Then I came across this painting from years ago. White Poinsettia.

So I made it into an oranament design.



It is actually a tricked out pocket mirror. The ribbon is inserted during assembly. The back is real mirror, so it will break, but it's wrapped in a tin shell, so it's a little bit protected. The mirror will bounce light around your tree, and bling it up a bit, don't ya think?


They are handsigned and dated.






I have a few more paintings that might work for these. I'll add these to the store in a few days.
