I'm having a sale and swapping ornaments!

Yep, right now in my Etsy shop through December 7th, all ornaments (sets included) are buy one and get the second half off. Details are in my shop. Hoping to make a little extra $$ before Christmas, as I know that's not happening working in retail! haha...
Here is one of my new ornaments, that is also included in the sale...
In other news, I've got umpteen thousand projects on my plate for Christmas. And I'm talking about gifts...I'm trying to make more things for people this year, you know, do the whole handmade thing, although I still have some things to buy in stores. I'm starting to worry that I won't get it all done...anyone else feeling like this? Just when I think I've made a bit of progress, I think of everything else and it's like "Uh oh! Panic Mode!". Craziness!

I received my first ornament for the Red Velvet Art Ornament Swap yesterday from Kristen in Iowa (thanks Kristen!)...it's really super cute! Will post pictures as soon as I receive all 3. Mine are all completed and now just need to be shipped, which I plan on doing tomorrow morning. Still have to post pics of mine too. Might edit this post later to include them. This was such a good idea that Rachel had! Hoping she does it again next year! Did anyone else join in this year?

*EDIT: Here they are! Hope the ladies receiving them enjoy! :)

Oh, and this is a chipboard button tree I made. First saw the idea on 2Peas and decided to try and make my own. It was a lot of fun! Really easy too! The original had ribbon in the form of a bow on top, but I found this cute little mini star tree topper at AC Moore and thought it would be perfect. It was metallic gold originally, but I sanded it down (so the paint would stick) and painted it bronze and then added glitter. I also added a tree trunk on mine, which is a vintage thread spool. I watercolored it brown. The watercolor was an experiment...I wanted it brown but didn't want the look acrylic paint gives it...I wanted it to look more aged, natural, like a real tree trunk. I'm really happy with the way it came out!

Anyways...hope you're all well and the holidays aren't bogging you down too much! :)
