Planes, Trains, and Automobiles….

Who doesn’t have a happy memories of playing with or watching a loved one play with a toy that was a plane, train, or automobile? Hallmark Ornaments has beautiful ornaments to help us remember those moments.

I have many family members who love cars, that is where I get my love for them from. My uncle has a tree of just car ornaments that he puts up every year. My aunt looks forward to getting him new ones to add to his tree every year. This year is no different! The 2018 Hallmark Ornaments have several cars that will make any car lover happy.

An ornament that I know he will love is the 1968 Chevrolet Nova SS, Classic American Cars #28 .

Another one I know he would appreciate on his tree is 2018 1954 Mercury M-100, All-American Trucks #24 .

1799QX9313_thumbnail.jpgHe does like classic trucks and has some Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments of them already. Do not forget that there are previous years Hallmark Ornaments available on the website for all of the planes, trains, and automobile ornaments you are looking for.

The elves will be busy this weekend at The Ornament Factory getting all of the orders out. I am so excited for everyone who pre-ordered the October 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments! They are beautiful!

Hope you all have a great weekend and can do something fun!

Superheros

Jackson the elf here! One of my favorite toys these days are my superhero ones. For my birthday I received a superhero cap and superhero masks. Pretending to be a superhero is so much fun! My favorite one is Ironman! That is what I am going to dress up as for Halloween. My little brother, little Daniel the elf, is going to be the Hulk. I call him the mean green Hulk!

While working at The Ornament Factory, I remembered that Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments made some super hero ornaments so I had to look and see if they had my favorite one. We do have it! I was so excited to find Ironman!

hallmark_2008_iron_man.jpgThis is my new favorite Hallmark Ornament and it will be a wonderful addition to one of my Christmas trees. After I found Ironman I had to look for the Hulk. I was surprised at how many years Hallmark Ornaments has made a different Hulk. I picked the one I liked the best out to add to one of my Christmas trees this year. Hulk will go right near Ironman.

1997_incredible_hulk.jpg I had to show little Daniel the Hulk after I found him. He was so excited! We are going to have a lot of fun this year dressing up as these superheros for Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, have you ordered your Hallmark Keepsake Halloween Ornaments for your tree? There is still time to order and have them in time to put them up on your Halloween tree.

An Elf’s Work is Never Done

Greetings from The Ornament Factory! We have been really busy these days with the sale we just had and the pre-orders for the 2018 Hallmark Ornaments that are being released Friday!!! Have you looked at them?? There are many really cool ones that you are going to want to add to your collections! You can still place your orders! One of our feature ornaments from the 2018 Hallmark Ornaments collection is the 2018 LT AREX AND LT M’RESS, STAR TREK, SDCC.

I know many people (and other elves) that have a Christmas tree that is all Star Trek ornaments. They are really cool! You can put really pretty white lights or maybe blue lights on the tree with all your Star Trek ornaments from Hallmark. I even know one person who surprised a big Star Trek fan with their own Star Trek tree! They were so excited about it. What a thoughtful thing to do for another person!

Of course, there are many other collections from Hallmark Ornaments that you are sure to find something to make any of  your friends and family smile.

I will try and post another blog later or tomorrow but I need to get back to work now. There is so much to be done here at The Ornament Factory!

Big Daniel, the elf

 

 

 

Childhood Memories

One of my favorite childhood memories about the Christmas tree is when the lights are off in the room and the tree lights are on and you just sit there and look how beautiful the Christmas tree is. I have one memory that sticks in my mind where I was walking downstairs and you could see the red hue of the Christmas tree lights from around the corner. I remember being so excited and just happy at that moment. As I walked around the corner and saw this tall glowing tree I was excited seeing all of the Hallmark Ornaments that decorated the tree branches.

Decorating the Christmas tree was always a fun family activity every year. All of us had our own Hallmark Ornaments that have special meaning to us. As we grew up we would have special spots on the tree where a certain ornament would go. It got to the point where you knew you could not put an ornament in places because it would be moved by someone else for a special ornament.

Hallmark Ornaments come in many of your favorite childhood memories. There are many ornaments from all parts of your childhood. Some of the popular Fisher Price Toys are now Hallmark Ornaments! From the School Bus

to the See and Say they have so many there! Do you have a special Fisher Price toy from your childhood? Is it a Hallmark Ornament yet?

There at some of your favorite board games you can decorate your tree with. The other elves and I enjoy playing board games together. One of our favorites is Monopoly! I love being the banker. You have to watch out for a couple of the elves, they like to hide money and think they are funny. Don’t worry us elves always include Rudolph when we play games.

That’s all for now. We are so busy here at The Ornament Factory with all of the orders from the Fall Into Savings Sale and the October 6th release of the 2018 Hallmark Ornaments, that I better get off of the computer and get to work!

One last thing before I go. Do not forget that you still have time to order you Halloween ornaments for your Halloween tree.

Have a great day everyone!

When I put my tree up it tells a story. All of the ornaments have either been given to me from someone special or I have purchased for a reason. Thankfully the Ornament Factory has all of the Hallmark Ornaments I want and need.

This is always one of the first things out. Do you like decorating for the holidays? Here is a really fun ornament you could put on your tree. It’s call Stack O’Lanterns.

TGIF

Happy Friday everyone! What plans do you have for the weekend? We will be busy here at The Ornament Factory getting orders shipped out from the Fall Into Savings Sale that is currently going on. We here at The Ornament Factory try our best to get you your orders in a timely manner.

After we are done working, I have a lot I want to get done this weekend. The weather should be nice so I need to get outside and do some yard work. It’s also a great time to get my Halloween decorations out. I already have my Halloween tree up because I was so excited to put it up! I have a black tree with orange and red lights with all my Hallmark Ornaments on it. Just looking at it makes me smile. Check out all of the Hallmark Halloween Ornaments we have here. My favorite Hallmark Halloween ornament on my tree is the Waiting for the Great Pumpkin.

I look forward to the Charlie Brown Movies around the holidays.

I’m really excited about one of the 2018 Hallmark Ornaments, Glo Worm! These were a very popular toy when we were kids that has made a come back. When you squeeze it, it lights up!

1799QXI3266_thumbnail.jpg

It is really fun that Hallmark has made ornaments of many of the toys we had as kids. It brings back wonderful memories that we can share with our families. What are some of your favorite childhood toys that Hallmark made into ornaments?

The 2018 Hallmark Ornament release will be here before we know it! October 6th is the big day! Have you had a chance to look at them? You still have time to pre-order ones that you would like.

Back to Halloween, all of the elves and I have been trying to decide what to dress up as for Halloween. We have done many creative things in the past and are having a hard time deciding what to be this year. Maybe you, our loyal readers, can help and give is some suggestions. And yes, before anyone asks, we go trick-or-treating just like everyone else. We have to watch Ben the elf will all his candy. He likes to get a sugar high and will never go to bed. It is pretty funny to watch.

The rest of my plans for the weekend are pretty standard. I have some cleaning and laundry to get done. I was thinking about doing some meal prep for the week. We are just getting more and more busy here at The Ornament Factory so having meals ready to go after work is helpful.

Hope you all have a great Friday!

What Is the Best Way to Buy 2018 Hallmark Ornaments?

Hallmark ornaments

If you are a huge Hallmark Ornament fan or are considering becoming a collector, you might be wondering what the best way is to get your hands on the most popular and coolest Hallmark Ornaments for Halloween and Christmas this year. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a Hallmark store nearby, but the good news is that if you have a computer, you can buy the 2018 Hallmark ornaments online. However, no matter where you buy, you have to come up with a plan to make sure that you don’t miss out.

Make a List and Check it Twice

Hallmark ornaments are highly desirable, some series more than others. When they hit the shelves of your local Hallmark store, they are likely to sell out in a day or two, or maybe even earlier. Make a list of everything you want to buy ahead of time so that you can watch release dates and not miss out. Some people mistakenly think ornaments are available year round. However, special edition Hallmark ornaments are a one-time release, which is why they are so collectible.

Watch for Release Dates

Hallmark doesn’t keep release dates hidden or secret. If you collect a specific type of Keepsake ornament, make sure to check its release date. You don’t want to miss this year because you didn’t stay on top of things. A sneak preview is set for October 6th, 2018. To get ahead of the buying competition, make a note of important dates in order to be at the front of the line either at the store or online.

Buy From a Reputable Dealer

Not all Hallmark ornaments sold online are original and genuine. If you don’t see the Hallmark trademark, proceed with caution. Buying from online bid sites or non-authorized dealers is never a good idea. To get the real deal, go to the brick and mortar stores or order from a licensed seller. Otherwise you might be disappointed.

Going, Going, Gone

Preordering is the best way to ensure you aren’t out of luck, so don’t procrastinate. Waiting to order until it’s too late will leave you feeling left out. If there is an option to preorder, do so. It is much better to order in advance than to find out your favorite collection is gone.

The best way to see the latest and great Hallmark ornaments is up close and personal in-store. Unfortunately, however, not everyone has a brick and mortar store nearby. If you are going to buy online, make sure that you are buying from an authorized dealer like The Ornament Factory. If you aren’t sure of a site’s reputation, take a pass. Always look for the Hallmark trademark to ensure you are getting what you pay for. 

The Santa Tree

Don’t forget to check out the contest we have going on. We posted about it on Tuesday here on the blog and on Facebook, Twitter, and Instgram. You could win a really cool ornament for you tree!

The elves have all been busy with work and their social activities lately. You would not believe all of the things they’re involved in. I’ll let them share that with you when they have time to blog.

For me, I have been busy here at The Ornament Factory and spending time with my family and the other elves. This time of year I spend a lot of my time working in the yard. This grass grows so fast right now! Since Fall is here I am trying to get my flower beds cleaned out and the mum planted.

My Halloween tree is up and looking beautiful! It is so relaxing and enjoying putting up my trees. My favorite tree is my Santa tree. I have been collecting Hallmark Ornaments of Santa for a very long time. It brings me such great joy to see all of them hung up on a lite Christmas tree.

My newest addition for the Santa tree this year is the 2018 Toymaker Santa. This one is really fitting for this year since all of the elves and I have been involved in many different sports this year.
1599QX9393_thumbnail.jpg

You can see all of the Toymaker Santa collection here. Have you been thinking about starting to collect a specific collection? or do you already have a collection started? It’s never too late to start collecting!

Don’t forget about the Fall Into Saving Sale currently going on. This would be a great time to start or add to your current collection of Hallmark Ornaments. To see all of the details about the sale you can go to our website http://www.hallmarkornaments.com

Wishing you all a wonderful day!
