How Ornaments for Keeps Got Started

We’re all passionate about things…passion adds richness to our lives. My passion is personalized Christmas ornaments!

In 1981 a good friend taught me to make personalized Christmas ornaments from bread dough. This opened the door for me to be a stay-at-home mom to my two young daughters and also to be creative.

Since my first craft show in 1981, I have met many wonderful people along the way. I’ve enjoyed helping my customers create wonderful memories and traditions with these unique one of-a-kind ornaments. In 2005, I became an ornament designer for a major personalized ornament wholesaler. This has been a very exciting move. I continue to make my own ornaments but also carry a wide variety of other ornaments to give you a great selection. In 2011, my daughter Kim decided to join me. What a blessing it has been! She is now helping me design and create ornaments and is a big part of running our social media.

Kim and I strive to bring you the highest quality ornaments. Our hope is each person who buys or receives these ornaments will treasure for years to come.
