Best Friends

There is nothing more special than having a best friend. Someone who you can go a  log time without seeing or talking and when you do get to see or talk to them it is like there is no time past. Here are some best friends that Hallmark made into Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments.

Better Together….

What is not to like?  Peanut butter and grape jelly goes so well together! On the Hallmark Keepsake ornament it says, “You’re sweet and I’m nuts…We’re perfect!”

Beautiful Winter, How Will You Decorate?

Winter time always bring up the debate of how to decorate. Do you leave up your Christmas decorations then go straight to Valentine’s Day? Do you have winter decorations like snowmen up after Christmas before Valentine’s Day? For those of you who like to have winter decorations, here are some Hallmark Keepsake Ornament suggestions for you. You could have a winter themed tree, a wreath, or just have the ornaments around your home.

Winter Garden Ready for Sledding….

When there is snow on the ground, the first thing I think of is sledding with all of the other elves. Thankfully we have many good places to go to around The Ornament Factory. After we are done we always enjoy a nice warm mug of hot chocolate.

Winter can be such a fun time. There are so many cute snowmen and winter Hallmark Ornaments that you can use to decorate with. What is your favorite Hallmark Keepsake Ornament to use for decorating for winter?

The elves have been busy at The Ornament Factory but also making sure we get time to go outside and enjoy the winter weather. The snowball fight the other day was so much fun! Little Daniel the Elf has a strong arm on him for being so little. Brandon the Elf was so fast running to hide. He was hard to get with the snowball. It is so nice to have all the elves around to play with and enjoy winter with.

That’s all for now from The Ornament Factory! Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Make a Valentine’s Day Wreath with Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments

Putting Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments on a wreath and dress it up and allow you to display some of your favorite love and heart ornaments. The best part is just like when you decorate a tree or wreath for Christmas you get to make it unique to you. These would also make a special gift that is thoughtful and appreciated.

For your Valentine’s Day tree you can add red lights or just leave white lights on it. For a tree skirts a red or pink blanket would look nice or if you are crafty you can make one. At the top of the tree if you can find a large red heart or cute stuffed toy. The possibilities are endless. Happy decorating!

We are still busy here at The Ornament Factory. The last sale we had was very successful! I love when the Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments find good homes where they will be loved. The other elves and I have been working on what ornaments we will put on the Valentine’s Day tree here at work. We have up our winter themed tree right now. I love the blanket we used for the tree skirt.

Back to work for me! I am excited that it is Friday and the weekend is here.
