ABS Ornament Blog Hop - Win One of Mine!

Welcome to my stop on the ABS ornament blog hop! Thank you for coming by to see the ornament I made.

This reminds me of a progressive supper club my friends and I started several years ago. Once a month, we would spend an evening trekking from house to house, stopping at a different house for a different dish on the menu. It was so much fun, but took an exhausting amount of time and energy to accomplish.

The ABS ornament blog hop is all the fun without all the work or the gas! All you need is a finger to click on the links of the participants, and you'll be transported to a holiday Winter wonderland!

Here is my contribution to the hop, a sweet little Victorian miss in her fur-trimmed aqua cape holding a red rose wreath, one of the ornaments in my 2010 Holiday collection. All the ornaments in the collection have a Victorian theme and were all created by me using digital images transferred to polymer clay. They are all "framed" in antique brass clay or burnished gold clay and trimmed with Swarovski crystal. To see more, scroll down the page or visit my flickr photostream.

Leave a comment at the end of this post and you could win this Sweet Little Victorian Miss ornament! No purchase is necessary, just leave a comment and on December 10, I'll draw a winner at random and send you an ornament in time for you to enjoy it on your tree this Christmas.

Thanks so much, and Happy Holidays!

Here is a list of all the participants. So, hop aboard the Ornament Express and let's go see what wonderful creations await us!

That's so true about blogs or a blog hop. Just one click of a button and your there with your friends. No Gas, No snow, No Ice, No nasty weather.

She is so sweet. Love the colors. I know from experience that imagine transfers are no easy task. It takes a lot of practice and a lot of ruined clay.

Thats's very generous of you to give away such a beautiful piece of your work.
Thank you. Happy Holidays to your and yours, jeannie

Our family of 5 siblings used to do the progressive dinner thing and decided by about the 3rd house we were so full we could bearly waddle to the last 2 houses! We have now changed it to a progressive "snack" with each house serving only 1 or 2 items at Christmas so we get to see each other's homes decorated for the holidays, & that works out much better! I love your artwork, and would give it a place of honor on the tree & show it off to everyone who comes over!!!
