Two years ago I was blessed to join in a Christmas ornament swap and had so much fun designing my ornaments that I've made it a habit.

This year I did a quick private swap with one of my favorite people, spookshowbaby77! We've done several swaps over the past couple of years and I love making new things for her and know that I'll always get awesomeness in return!

I ended up designing two new ornaments this year, (another one made it to the cutwork phase but was never completed), and wanted to share.

I'm still not sure why this guy is pissed. I figured because either he got left off the string of lights this year, or because he doesn't want to be on the string of lights this year? Regardless, boy is he irked!

No matter how much I fiddled with this guy's face, he looked bored. I think that he was angry for so long his face froze like this and now he's just bored of being angry.

WIP - monster light bulbs in cutwork phase with their inspiration piece. I made this brooch last year and while perusing my material for ideas he caught my eye. I thought he'd make a great ornament!

I saw an ornament on flickr using *real* scrabble tiles and thought it would be cool to do a couple in felt. I have one in a baggie spelling out "peace" waiting to be sewn together and stuffed.

Ornaments from previous years:
House Ornament - 2008
Etch A Sketch Ornament - 2008
Barrel of Monkeys Ornament - 2009

Okay, I straight up guffawed when I saw these pics - so cute! The one that is "bored" of being angry is particularly funny to me. How awesome would an entire Christmas tree of angry ornaments be?

These are great. I, for one, love the expressions of each of them. You do great work!
