Another busy weekend….

Hello everyone! Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was relaxing yet fun. Time sure does fly on the weekends. There is always so much to do. Even with the daylight savings time giving us an extra hour I did not get everything done that I needed to.

Take Down Halloween…

Since Halloween is over, it was time to take down all of the Halloween decorations inside and outside. Taking down my Halloween tree takes some time because I like to put all of the Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments back in their original packaging and boxes. It just helps to keep them in great condition. We took down the lights outside too. This part did not take as long as Christmas lights but still took sometime. To reuse some of our Halloween decorations we took the stickers we used to decorate some pumpkins off of them and now have the pumpkins out on the front porch for Thanksgiving decorations.

To put up the Christmas decorations or not, that is the question….

It is always the big debate this time of year, when do you put out your Christmas decorations. Me personally, I say the day after Halloween is a good time. I just love Christmas decorations. Not everyone in my home feels that way though. We usually try to come up with a compromise.

Other fun things from the weekend….

We had a great opportunity to go to a concert this weekend. Let me tell you it was amazing! A true musician and talented singer. It was three hours of amazing music! We also got some cleaning and organizing that needed done done. I still have some laundry to get done but I can do that when I get home from working at the Ornament Factory today.

Better get back to work packing orders so they can get shipped out to all of you! Have a great rest of your Monday!

Peanuts Gang for the Holidays

As I have talked about in previous blogs about the Peanuts characters, they are a well liked series with Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments. many traditions have been made with these ornaments and movies. The holidays wouldn’t be the same without A Charlie Brown Christmas. Since its premiere Dec. 9, 1965, the Emmy-winning TV special has become a cherished tradition in millions of homes around the globe.

Classic Characters

Linus is one the Peanuts Gang that is well loved. He is known for carrying around his blanket everywhere he goes. A Comfy Christmas for Linus was released in 2017.

My personal favorite Peanuts Hallmark Ornament is the 2007 What Christmas is All About.  Year after year, viewers are drawn to the simple story of Charlie Brown and his search, amid the season’s hype and hoopla, for the meaning of Christmas. It is near the end of the special, when Linus recites the biblical account of the Baby’s birth, that we truly learn “what Christmas is all about.” This is a rare Hallmark Ornament.

The Peanuts Gang Hallmark ornaments make a great addition to any tree or you can just have a tree dedicated to them. They will bring back many fond memories of watching the movies.

I appreciate you taking the time to catch up with us elves here at The Ornament factory. Be sure to check out the website and place your orders to make sure you get the ornaments you would like. That is all for now. Our work day is almost over and I’m excited to get some play time in with the other elves. Have a great day!

Happy November 1!

55 days until Christmas!! This year has certainly gone by very fast. believe me, I am not complaining because I love the holiday season. All of the delicious food, family, and of course decorations make me so happy!

A Few Things to Remember….

Order your Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments early to make sure you get the one or ones you want. You can look and shop at http://www.hallmarkornaments.com . Remember, if you have any questions or need help we cal always help.

Hallmark Ornaments make great gifts around the holidays. If you’re going to a party or event they make for a wonderful hostess gift. There are so many to pick from you are sure to find one for any person in your life.

There is no right or wrong when it comes to decorating. If it is something you like and enjoy then go for it. There is also no set time frame to decorate. Everyone has their own opinion on this topic and there is no right or wrong.

If you like to decorate the outside of your  home it might be a good idea to get that done before the weather gets too cold. You do not have to turn it on just because you have it set up. Decorating might be more enjoyable if you take care of it when the weather suits you better.

Take care of yourself. This time of year your schedule can get hectic and you find yourself too busy to take care of you. Take some time to do something enjoyable and/or relaxing.

Lastly, have fun! The holiday season is a beautiful time with family and friends.

Your friendly Head Elf,

Elliott

It is all about the shoes or better yet for Cinderella, it is all about the shoe. A lady does love her shoes. The glass slipper was made into a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament in 2017 with the release of Fit for a Princess.
