As a wife, hairdresser, inventor, and active mom of 4, with 2 large dogs and 2 cats, you can imagine how easy it is for life to get in the way. I’ve always loved to decorate during the holidays and did my very best with what I had. Decorations like hand-me-down wreaths with half a pinecone stuck to a blob of dusty hot glue, to bows that had definitely seen better days were the norm.
Every year, we’d purchase a fresh Christmas tree. The sturdiness of the tree determined which ornaments could be hung that year; ‘Baby’s First Christmas’ for example (ours is so heavy!). This was always a mystery to me- why make heavy ornaments if there is no way to hang them? Why? Our tree looked like an average family’s tree with garland, random handmade ornaments, Santa Clauses, elves, ball ornaments, and the occasional pre-made bow - you get the picture. But I often fantasized about having that designer Christmas tree - like the ones you see in the magazines. Not only did I not know how to create that kind of look, I had the anti-decorators to contend with - kids & pets - oh my!
Developing the Ornamator has changed my life. Now I create the Christmas tree of my dreams, and my kids actually enjoy helping. I can hang my heavy ornaments every year, and do so much more - make beautiful bows, cluster ornaments, attach floral arrangements, pictures and sprays. It allows me to secure my fragile heirloom ornaments and make beautiful wreaths year after year, and it allows me to express my creativity in ways I never could before.
I'm excited for you to experience Ornamator. It's a tool that makes creating fun and easy! I'd love to see what you create! Be sure to tag your #Ornamator when you post to instagram, and be sure to follow me on Pinterest for inspiring ideas!
