That would look just lovely on our tree here in Hawaii! Sometimes it gets hard to feel very festive when there is no snow. Thanks for doing a giveaway, Helen - very exciting, I have my toes crossed :)

heidi kenney said...

Happy Thanksgiving, the ornament is just fantastic!!!

S Gonzalez said...

Helen, I have found your art work through a friend of mine. You are amazing at everything you do, and I hope I can work with you some day. I see some people would like to have some stained glass work of your patterns, and I can do that for anyone who would like it, as long as it's ok with the artist.

BTW- my 2 year old daughter has seen this ornament and loves the "pretty pink happy face".
It's also my birthday today, so this would be a great gift!

Kelly Medina said...

Too fantastic! Count me in! :)

Hello Helen!
I used to live in Ottawa - oh so long ago;)
Now I'm in Stockholm, and my daughter will be having her first real xmas (I don't think it last year counts as she was just 3 months old). We'd love hang your ornament on our self-fashioned recycleable tree - the Treearoo. I am postive she'll love it!=)

Millertoons said...

As much as I'd love to have a piece of your artwork, there are more deserving people to get your work as I just found your blog today.

If you don't mind me asking, can you give me a brief ste by step on how you made this. I'm a children's book illustrator, and I'd love to learn how to make plush dolls of some of my characters...Any info would be greatly appreciated.
