christmas character ornaments
I bought these adorable polymer clay ornaments at our company's annual book & gift fair, which raises money for our childcare center.
They all came in a cute paper-covered hinged box with collaged snowmen on the top. I am going to give each of the ornies as gifts and use the box to hold a gift of some kind of holiday treat...mixes or candy?
The sad thing is the whole set including box cost only $12. Could you imaging the time it takes to create each one of these poly clay characters? They are 3" high & extremely well done, even to the caning that creates the clothing patterns and the braided spaghettis of clay that create the textured sweater on mr. snowman.
No way a crafter could sell these for $2 each. I feel like a traitor, but it was for the tots, lol!! Some little kid in China probably got paid $1 a day to make these....*sigh*
