I forgot to put the blog in my Google Reader until the next week when I saw the blog linked again for another You Capture post.
Melanie is from the Buffalo, NY area, which I thought was pretty cool, and she works with polymer clay. And all of her pieces are wonderful!
I eventually did what my husband thinks I’m crazy for – I emailed Melanie to see if she could make a custom ornament…..with our cat on it. I sent her a link to a picture of Chloe, and now we have our 2009 “family” ornament.
(I blurred out our last name and the husband’s name – I know our names are all over the place, but I felt I needed to do it for this one.)
And I couldn’t help myself. This all took place just before our anniversary, and I thought her wedding cake photo holders were adorable, and asked if she could do one in burgundy (of course she could) so now I have this for my desk:
I just need to get it to the office to put one of our wedding photos in.
If you are looking for an ornament this year, you must head over to Melanie’s etsy shop. Her pieces aren’t exclusive to Christmas. It just happens to be the holiday I’m focusing on right now. 🙂
(And Melanie didn’t ask me to post anything – I just really, really wanted to show these off.)
