I decided to go ahead and list some ornaments last weekend; if there's one thing I've learned from selling on Etsy, it's that you can never start too early listing holiday items.
I still have more in the works that will be coming soon. And I still have to photo and list a few other brooches too.
I would have Christmas decorations up year-round and probably never get sick of them; Christmas is my favorite holiday by far. But I'm making a lot of my ornaments colorful and not-so-Christmasy that you could hang them up year-round if you wanted to without running the risk of looking like the neighborhood crazy lady who never takes down the holiday decorations...every neighborhood has one, right?
I will have a couple more traditional Christmas ornaments too. And you don't have to get a tree to display ornaments. A couple of years ago, Peter and I decided not to get a tree, and I made a garland out of felt ornaments. And I've seen lots of diy trees out of recycled cardboard or making a tree shape on the wall with washi tape and taping up the ornaments on it. Or you could make a tree shape out of the ornaments themselves, without the tape. The possibilities are endless.
