|A Christmas tree made of sea shells|
This week I added to my holiday inventory in both my Atelier Mandaline stores on eBay and Etsy. I made one Christmas tree centerpiece, mostly from oyster shells, which I think make perfect trees since the purple spot in each one looks like a round ornament hanging on the tree. I added to the variety of angel and Madonna ornaments as well, so you can really do a lot of coastal style decorating!

I thought I would try another product and just see how they sell: photographic prints. I already did a couple doll themed prints and cards and now I added several square Instagram retro-style prints, mostly of beach scenes. Wouldn't it be wonderful if I could make enough money selling beach-themed stuff to justify buying a beach house? Since none of these have sold yet I suppose that's probably never going to happen.
I had a lot of "help" making ornaments from Oreo the kitten, who it turns out just adores bags of Spanish moss! She's destined for disappointment for a bit, however. I am going back to dolls now that my holiday inventory is filled out.
