{something storybook}: glitter storybook ornaments and santas

Snowflakes aren't falling yet, but I am in the mood for winter: a snow day or two, holiday vinyls, peppermint hot cocoa, and winter wish list dreaming.

Here are a few items I've been creating that are on the way to The Corner Cottage and The Metro Gallery for the Black Friday rush and thereafter. If you are in Southeast Missouri this holiday season, be sure to checkout the Glitter Storybook Christmas Series.

I might post some in the shop, but this little elf only has so much time in her workshop after eight-hour days reading stories to teenagers and helping teenagers write their own stories.

Oh. The image above is with a  special winter bell jar I created awhile back. I'm hoping to post a DIY in December...

be merry,


  1. that's so sweet! i love christmas anything. that's awesome about what you do...you must have heard some pretty amazing things from your teens! thanks for coming by the boot! :) marissa @ the boot

  2. Love the glitter! And the bell jar! Great idea.

    And to answer your question - I don't think it can get much better than a hand made gift! It's so thoughtful and sweet knowing that your gift was made by hand from the giver. I wish I had enough time and talent to do something like that. :)

  3. Thanks for the sweet comments. I just discovered a new tip with glitter, too. Apparently, a good square of felt will clean up a spill pretty well. xo.
