Holiday pet ornaments!

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Early Fourth of July greetings!

Ahead of the monthly update I do for the  pfatt marketplace, I want to send out some information about the special Christmas ornaments for your cats and dogs, and/or for gifts for your friends and family!  I designed a flat piece for an ornament, because the dimensional ones did not provide me with enough room to fully capture a likeness of a furry babe.  I’m still in the hunt for a dimensional wooden shape, but in the meantime, I have created a design which I think you will like!  The wooden ornament is about 4 inches long, and nearly 3 inches wide, and provides ample space for those sweet fuzzy faces for the holidays!  The ornament will come boxed, and nestled in French vanilla fine shred  100% recycled paper to cushion it.  I’ll tie the box with ribbon, and it will be ready to give to your friends, or to keep for yourself.  I want to create a lasting keepsake for years of enjoyment!

Here is Sophie, the beloved Golden, of one of my customers.  For purposes of photography, I have not put a sheen on the ornament, but will add some now that the image has been taken.  Your fur friend will be painted in the main portion of the ornament, with the top and bottom whorls painted in holiday colors.  The back is also finished, and I can write whatever you wish to have there.

Here are a couple of photos which show my painting technique:

I am now open for taking orders.  An ornament with a single face image, complete with box, is $32.00, plus shipping.  When you contact me for a holiday ornament portrait, I will need good closeup photos of your pet for best results.  You may determine delivery time, but  I will be busier later on in the year.    I have three shows this fall – 2 in November, and 1 in December, so I will be painting right through until Christmas.  I’m always happy to take orders, but beyond December 15th, I will have to decline – I’m hoping that I’m still standing upright after the show season!  lol!  At the time of the order, I request 50% deposit – $16.00 for each ornament, with the balance to be paid upon my completion of the order.  I use paypal for all transactions.  Thank you  for your continuing interest in my work!  I am so very fortunate to have your support for what I love to do!  Please contact me at:  ginny@ginnydiezelstudios.com ! I hope to hear from you soon!
