I started this a couple years ago (2008) and every year we (or I) make an ornament or several for family and friends.
I really want my children to cherish their ornaments so I try to pick something that they are into. Last year with Booga I got a pass this year I did not. Since I am on the Amazing Crafting Product Design Team I decided I would mold and cast their favorite toy in resin. My daughter it was a Littlest Pet Shop Sea Turtle named Tooga. Keep in mind these are copyrighted so I will not be selling them or making a profit I made them for my daughter for our Christmas Tree.
