Stocking Stuffers
1st in the series.

Nina Aubé: “I’m a huge animal lover, so all the critters in this stocking are pets I’ve personally known and loved, including my beloved cockatiel Opie, who lived to the ripe old age of 25.”

Each ornament in this new series will feature a festively stuffed stocking designed by a different Keepsake Studio Artist each year!

Rocking Horse Memories
2nd in the series.

Matt Johnson: “I want this series to have a beautiful range of rocking horses! For this I used a bolder color palette that gives the horse a really rich character. I explored many color variations before landing on this design that feels just right.”

Fancy Flamingo

Edythe Kegrize: “Flamingos have always been a favorite of mine, with their awkward elegance, vibrant color and impressive size. My hope is ‘Fancy Flamingo’ will stir up plenty of warm sunbaked memories or dreams of topical adventure yet to come.”

Sweet Decade
2nd in the series.

Tammy Haddix: “Sweet Decade was inspired by my sweet tooth! I wanted it to look like you could actually eat it! As a kid my siblings and I would create gingerbread houses. I think more candy ended up in our bellies than on the house!”
