Hi! I’m Alyx. I love making Sequined and Kimekomi Christmas Ornaments. I started making Sequined Ornaments when I was about 16 with my mother’s encouragement and now it’s grown into a full on ornament addiction. In 2010 I added Easter Eggs and Japanese Kimekomi to my repertoire. I’ve always wanted to share my passion with the world which is why I started this blog. All of the ornaments on this site are of my own design unless otherwise stated.
I do sell my ornaments on Etsy. All proceeds from ads on this site and ornaments sold on Etsy go toward supplies or technical costs. I would love to quit my day job and make ornaments for a living but so far that’s not happening.
