Over the weekend I have been fending off yet another sinus infection. Yuck.  But, me being someone who has trouble sitting around doing nothing, I have been having a lot of fun working on personalized gift orders. 

(for more examples see Personalized Hand Painted Gifts tab located at top of the blog page).  

A while back I had the fortune to come across a couple of really cool light bulbs that had lived out their purpose. I knew I could use them for something…..Santa Ornaments!

Step One: Find really cool bulbs that are blown and in trash of an office!
Step Two: Decide what you see in the shape of the light bulb…I see Santa

Step Three: Begin to paint

Still Painting….

…..and some drying
Step Four: add details

Step Five: the final touch….Santa’s hat
