This post is a little detour from my usual I Love These Ideas! Sunday column.... but I knew you would forgive me because A) you will love this idea and B) it involves my mother and everyone knows shameless promotion is OK if it involves your mother.
My mother, Mickie Harrington-Rodway, owns a small business called Christmas Memories.
She handcrafts and personalizes Christmas ornaments of her own design. (See the one below? I was the model for that one.)
They are adorable and she will personalize them however you want. Her handwriting is impeccable. I'm showing some of the designs here, but there are a lot more.
They're only $6.95 each and the shipping is free within the United States.
The ornaments have been popular locally for years, but now she's branching out with a website.
People here buy her year after year, so their kids can
have personalized ornaments to mark their growing up. They also use them to commemorate: baby's first Christmas, an engagement or marriage or a new home.
So, if you're in the market for some fun, beautifully crafted ornaments, check her out.
Now, Mom, can I stay up late? Get a Brady Bunch lunchbox? Have a sleepover party?
