Taking Suggestions

I decided last year to make ornaments on a yearly basis. One basic design, like collectible yearly things. This is last years:
Notice that I personalized them with the year and the person's name. My plan for selling them is to always have the year, but to charge an extra dollar for putting on the name. Then I can make a bunch of generic ones faster. You'll notice that I painted the design to be seen through the glass, but I painted it again on the back to be seen from behind. I also found this cool paint that looks like snow for the bottom.

So, now I'm taking suggestions for design ideas regarding this year's ornament. If I choose yours, you get two free ones! That's a $12 value! So, leave me a comment, or if you're stingy with your ideas (which is fine by me), you can e-mail me.

Monica, that is fucking genius. I wanna see that now! Or at least little sleep goblins loading Santa's sleigh, complete with elvish hats and curled-toe booties. I'll make a drawing, it's gonna be cute!!!

I think that monica is correct, there should definately be a sleep goblin themed collection.

My question is this... only the people who visit this blog regularly even care about my sleep goblin. So if I make sleep goblin ornaments, are you guys going to buy them? Cause otherwise it has to be something else.

i think a lot of people like goblins in general, but they might not be people who buy ornaments.

good luck whatever direction they go, you are very talented.

Rowan said...

I think you should use the goblin as your logo, and then, they'd realize they're buying a goblin original.

also i wore my poncho to work the other day and got like 100 compliments, if you could pump those out quicker you could prolly sell them for like 20 each-kel

Tropical Santa, on a beach, sipping a pina colada.

SO cool!

I think you should do a fireplace with 2-3 stockings (quilled) hanging in front of it. I am envisioning that the fireplace paint colors would really lend themselves to this cool paint layering trick.

You are so talented!

Please stop by & visit my barnyard post again. I had to delete the old one because it messed up my sidebar. & hence lost your comment!

Have a great weekend.

i envision a handsome yak handing out gifts to the less fortunate with a long line of women that want him and a long line of men that want to be him. does that make me egotistical or just an idiot?
