...and before I get into the new series...can I just say that I LOVE DECORATING FOR CHRISTMAS?! Seriously, Christmas lights make me so happy!! Here's a look at the 2015 Gironda Holiday Decor;
Okay...now back to the new series...well, I guess I never got to it...so...here goes.
For many years I have painted ornaments at Christmas time. I think I started back when we lived in Greenville, NC. I painted ornaments the cheerleaders...teachers at my school saw them and placed special orders for sports teams, etc. I used to sell them at cheerleading competitions, I would mass produce a standard megaphone and pom design and then customize it with the team colors and cheerleader's name at various cheerleading competitions...I even painted over 100 ornaments as wedding favors!
So, I'm no stranger to painting ornaments. I will post some more pics of ones I have saved later this month, but for now, here are some old skool pics;

Right now, if you are interested please either directly email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, direct message me via FB/IG, or use the CONTACT form on this site.

If you have any questions, please contact me. Can you request certain things, like hair color, etc? Yes, send suggestions and I will work those into what I am creating.
