What is the size/detail explanation for the ornaments?  I assume "small" and in various mediums?

I'm so excited - Christmas in September!!

Sooo, is everyone going to "sweatshop" their ornaments (make five the same) or try and personalize a bit to their partners?

I wouldn't mind "sweatshopping", but it's a small enough item so it wouldn't take too long to customize for each partner, either.  I wanna see who my partners are and what they're looking for, then I'll decide.
