Every year I hand craft Christmas ornaments for my friends and family. This year I would like to extend it to more then just my friends and family. If people would like to have one of my hand crafted Christmas ornaments you can! You may help support my project and at a specific level of support I will give you an ornament(s) as a reward.
I have two main reason why I am doing this. First, I enjoy making craft items and this keeps me occupied with doing something I enjoy. Second, I recently lost my job and I am looking to make a little money from this project to help pay for the ornaments I create for my friends and family. This kind of goes hand in hand, I lost my job so now I have time to dedicate to making these ornaments for multiple people.
I making a "gingerbread" house design this year. I will make previous year designs for an extra charge. Each design will come with the standard "Merry Christmas KJL 2011" and may be changed to wording of your choice (at specific levels of support).
Again, each of these are hand crafted and each may be a different from the picture(s). You will see the santa below how I created two different hats. I found that one hat worked better then the other. I keep on learning new techniques as a go.
I am willing to create the previous years along with this years feature model.
Some of you may have the question on if I get over funded by a lot or you may be wondering how I will get all of this done within two weeks. First, I will start making the ornaments once I get fully funded. On the other hand, I have already asked a few of my friend that like making crafts if they could help out. We will get this done. Our goal is to have all the ornaments shipped out by December 12, 2011.
Remember, the 2011 version is a version of its own. It is the first year that I will be giving these ornaments to people other than my friends and family. In that sense it will be a one of a kind.
