Orna.MENTAL

Sometimes I feel like I’ve gone mental trying to come up with new Christmas designs. The struggle is real but in the end I decided not to fuss and just get down to business.  Some simple fretwork, a marbled tree or two, a few sweet Santas and Christmas is in the house.

Deer Me

A very dear (not to be confused with deer) friend has me make place cards for her Christmas Eve dinner every year.  This year she wanted reindeer. I placed them in a snow globe and voila!  Dashing (or dancer, prancer, or vixen.).

Me, My Elf, and I

I have been making place cards for a friend’s Christmas Eve dinner for many years. Santa’s helpers were happy to help, taking a break after working so hard all year long. Hope your holiday meal is a very merry one.

You SLEIGH me

Oh the wonder of words and idioms.  My fascination with the blend of visual and verbal art continues.  Can you hear the sleigh bells ring, as you listen? Cookies hand painted and trimmed with Rainbow Dust edible ink pens.  Background mat from InkandElmBackrops.
