Calliope Designs Personalized Snowman Family Christmas Ornaments
The first time I saw this, I was so thrilled. I was so excited that I was planning to get the family of 5. I forgot that we are a family of 4. Way too much excitement. I guess that’s what happened when you get a mood boost. ;)
But I think the family of 5 is still appropriate. No, we don’t have a pet, but my eldest daughter just got married this past summer. So that makes us a family of 5.
This tree decor is so cute. I love the design where each member of the family has one eye covered with the cap on their head. This reminds me of this gingerbread comic that I saw.
The first gingerbread cookie had complete set of eyes. The 2nd gingerbread cookie has one eye and the other eye has like a shape of comma. The caption said: “Are you winking at me, or did they run out of frosting for your eye?” I was really chuckling when I read it―that really made my day!
Anyway, this adornment is made of light weight, durable material―polymer clay. It is hand crafted piece by piece and then baked in an oven. The lettering is done in permanent black ink by hand. The size is 4 inches tall.
You will love to give this as a gift to a family of 5. The family who will receive this will surely be delighted. This will be a keepsake for them to enjoy for many years ahead.
Pink Personalized Ornament for Baby Girl’s First Christmas
This is a perfect piece to celebrate your baby girl’s first Christmas (2017). It is so cute that it will surely catch any one’s attention when they see it on your tree.
The lettering is handwritten with the use of a marker. Adding the customized inscription is free.
The size is perfect: not too big and not too small to hang on your tree. It’s made of light weight resin material so it won’t weigh down the branch of your tree.
It comes with a pink looped ribbon so it’s ready for you to hang on your tree when you receive this beautiful pink customized tree decor.
Do you know what this reminds me of? Here it is. . .
When my eldest child was about 2 years old, she saw a picture of me while I was in the hospital holding something with black hair in my arms.
She asked me, “Why is that black kitty in your arms?” Actually, it was not a kitty. I told her, “That’s not a kitty. That’s you!”
In that picture, her body was covered with a white cloth diaper, and her head was only showing. She had plenty of hair and it was all black. I’ve never had a bald baby.
And another story that comes to mind is somewhat hilarious. Before we left the hospital, the nurse asked me if I wanted my baby to get circumcised. Huh?
I said to the nurse, “I have a baby girl.” The nurse was appalled. She thought I had a baby boy because of how much hair she had on her head!
So my first baby was mistaken as a kitty and as a boy.
Handmade Crystal For Baby’s First Holiday Ornaments
If you don’t like a cartoonish baby keepsake design hanging on your tree, perhaps you will love this crystal adornment instead. It looks so simple yet elegant. It has a very classy look to it and it is beautifully crafted.
Here are the dimensions:
. . . Width / Height: 3 inches in diameter
. . . Depth: 3/16 inch thick
I love the special feature that comes with this ornament because it allows you to put more details. It can be customized to whatever text or message you wish. You are not limited to the baby’s name only. You can add the birthdate, baby’s weight, and the delivery time. This makes a very special keepsake for your baby.
The customized details are laser engraved to a handmade crystal so it will stay permanent ― it will not wear or scratch off. The text is very readable and clear.
The crystal has beveled edges. So when you hang it on a tree, it catches the light and it creates a gorgeous glowing effect. This makes it even more eye catching.
It’s not heavy for your tree, so it will not weigh down the branch.
You will receive the item in a gift box. Also included is a metallic silver string that is already hand tied to the crystal so that it will be easy for you to hang.
A crystal item is a beautiful and a rare keepsake. You will absolutely treasure this for years to come. You can also give this as a gift.
A memorable experience that comes to my mind is another baby story.
When my eldest daughter was a little girl she had no one to play with for almost 5 years. She told her dad that she wanted a baby sister. Her dad told her that there was nothing we could do but pray to God. One day, I heard her praying, “Jesus, please let baby sister Cattleya grow in mommy’s tummy.”
Yes, it wasn’t very long until we had the second baby girl. One day, while I was in bed with the new baby, my eldest came to me and said, “You know, Mom, she is not Daddy’s baby. She is my baby because I prayed for her.”
So every time when the baby cried in her room while I was in the kitchen, I called my first daughter to check on the baby. I told her, “You said it’s your baby.” Every time I needed help with the baby, I would often tell her, “It’s your baby.”
She is a really good sister and a very good helper too. Then later she came to me and said, “Mom, the next baby is not my responsibility. It’s Daddy’s.” While she was still young, she learned the responsibility of having a baby.
And you know what, she still looks after her younger sister. She helps us in sending her sister to college―what a blessing they are!
Wooden Personalized First Christmas Ornament 2017
You will love the craftsmanship of this tree décor. It is made from solid mahogany or red maple wood. This art is great for those who are not fond of resin or a cartoonish design. You will love the beautiful and intricate details of the work.
This special adornment has a very unique design for gifting for newlyweds, babies, families, children, and grandchildren.
This laser cut wood is very light in weight. And here are the dimensions:
. . . Diameter: a little over 3 inches
. . . Depth: 1/8 inch thick
It allows a maximum of 16 characters. But if the name has these letters: L, W, M, and other letters with wide fonts, you are limited to have 14 characters. In this case, you can use the nickname so that the name can be readable.
This art design can be used for other customization ideas such as: a pet’s name, husband and wife’s names, club name, wedding date, or a child or grandchild’s first name.
It’s a lovely and beautifully crafted keepsake. You will enjoy its uniqueness.
When I found out that you can order this for a newly-wedded couple, here is what it came to my mind.
By the way, I am not newly-wed wife.
When my first child was about 3 years old, she was looking at our wedding pictures. She saw the flower girl and she didn’t look like her. So she asked me, “Where is me? Where is me?” She was so troubled that she was not in the picture.
Later my husband explained to her that she was still inside of him. And I think that made her more curious too. Then later, she came to me and said, “I got it mom. First, I was in daddy’s tummy. Then he kissed you and then I went to your tummy.” Yeah, kids are very good at analyzing things.

This art work is a very special addition to your tree. Because it brings the message of the true reason why we are celebrating the season ― it’s the birth of Jesus.
