One tradition that I have discovered is creating memorial ornaments. These ornaments usually have a dragonfly or a butterfly to symbolize life after death in a spiritual way. Collectors were snatching up the dragonfly ornaments and asking to have their loved ones names added lovingly to the back.
Art provides comfort
I love this tradition so much and it gives me joy to know that my little art is providing comfort to those who may be feeling loss. Families normally collect a new one each year and I also noticed that my collectors preferred to get the holiday ornaments in multiples so that is why I am offering coordinated ornaments in sets of three. There are only three sets offered this year in this style plus I also have some selected ones I made with small prints of my art and bedazzled with glitter. You can see all the ornaments HERE
|Last year, I hosted a hugely successful newsletter subscriber only black Friday "sale." I put sale in quotes because I really don't put my art on sale but I do give art collectors and loyal newsletter subscriber secret coupon codes to save on art because I really appreciate you. (by the way, I wouldn't necessarily suggest waiting until the sale to get these 2015 ornaments since I only made ten in this style and they may even be gone before the sale. I don't usually have time to restock so once these are gone, they are gone. You can get yours now HERE )|
