Final Ornaments of 2016 & two New Nutcracker Sweet Dancers

Happy Holidays my friends! I’ve just posted on my Happy Shoppe on Etsy two new little “Nutcracker Sweet” Ballerinas just in time to gift to your special little dancer.  Don’t wait to grab one though because there are only two and all my other Nutcracker Sweet ladies have soldout.

There’s still plenty of time to place your order and receive your ornament(s) in time for Christmas gift giving and/or decorating, but don’t wait.  As always each of my ornaments are handmade and one of a kind so if you see one you like grab it quick!  

Here’s a quick preview of some of the Ornaments available in the Shoppe:

For my Barre Sisters at the Happy Shoppe on Etsy

I have a few more ornaments to add to the shoppe this Season so get them while they’re hot!  Here are a four additional “Barre Ladies”.  These ornaments are fast sellers so if you see one you like grab them quick.  Also – remember that I have now added a Personalize Your Ornament addon at the Happy Shoppe on Etsy for those ornaments applicable so you can add a name/date to an in shoppe ornament and make your gift to yourself or someone special even more perfect.  Also, if you love an ornament but it isn’t able to be customizable on the actual ornament body I have added a Personalize your Packaging option as well.  I’m trying to cover all my bases from requests from the past.  

Just a reminder for anyone worried about shipping deadlines, all ornaments can get to you by Christmas if ordered by 12/18, and for those of you wanting fully custom sculpted ornaments my cut off date for those is 12/5 (which is this monday – so get your orders in).

Phewww!  It’s busy here, I hope you all are having a great kick off to your Holiday Season!

I’m getting as many ornaments made before the rush of the Season and I’m super excited to add to my offerings these cuties!

Scaredy Cats (back by popular demand) 

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Calacas


I Love Barre (or as I lovingly call them “Barre Babes”)

As always – these are all one of a kind and handmade by me and when they’re gone they’re gone. If you see one you like pick it up fast.

* Also, BIG NEWS! *

Because many of you have inquired about personalizing in-shoppe ornaments (ornaments listed in the shoppe and not created under the custom ornament option).  I have been in a quandary over how to do that since not all of my in-shoppe ornaments have space on the front or back for adding a name and date/year.  To solve this I have added two options this year that I hope will help any of you interested in personalizing an ornament you see in the shoppe.

1- Personalize your Packaging add – on for $5.00:

This option allows you to request a personal greeting (i.e. “Happy Birthday ___”, “Merry Christmas ___”, etc…),  Rename your ornament to a name of your choosing,  and/or Create a personalized “To” & “From” note.  This personalization will be on the insert card in the packaging and will make your gift even more special.  This option is good for ALL of my in-shoppe ornaments and is especially great for those that can not be personalized on the actual ornament.

2- Personalize your Ornament add – on for $8.00:

This option allows you to personalize those ornaments I’ve noted as having space either on the front or the back for painted on personalization of a Name and Date/Year. If an ornament is eligible for this add-on option you will see a note on the title as well as in the photo role. 

Keep checking into the Shoppe for more ornaments and grab them quick!  :0)

New “Yoga Retreat” Ornaments at my Happy Shoppe on Etsy


In honor of returning from a Yoga Retreat a couple weeks ago, I finally have added more Yoga Ornaments at my Happy Shoppe on Etsy! I know this isn’t really the ornament shopping time of the year but I am trying to make as many as I can in the off season because last year between my custom and Etsy Shoppe sales I sold out of Yoga ones early.  As always, if you see one you like – grab it asap. I’m not sure how many I’ll have come Fall. Also,  did you notice the guy yogi in this “Yoga Retreat” group?  I thought I would shake things up and add a guy yogi to my offerings.  I’ll make more if he proves to be a popular item.

Custom Ornaments at the Happy Shoppe on Etsy

Wow time is flying by and I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving which means Christmas is in full swing thereafter! With that in mind I wanted to remind any of you thinking about ordering a custom ornament from my Happy Shoppe on Etsy for this year’s tree or gift-giving – please do so now.  

You will be able to order listed ornaments that are non-customized up through Christmas, however I have to stop taking custom orders on December 5th. This year is looking to be an exceptionally busy year for me so I won’t be able to extend that date.  If you have a custom idea that you don’t see as an option on my Happy Shoppe page just send a note through Etsy and let me know what you’re thinking about. Below are just a few of the custom ornaments I wrapped up today and I’ve got a tray full waiting to be painted. Tis the Season!  :0)
