About Us

Name: JoAnn and Jerry Skidmore
Hometown: Nicholasville, Kentucky



In the fall of 1994, I began my adventure in creating personalized Christmas ornaments.  What a ride it has been!  I began learning how to sculpt using polymer clays such asSculpey III  and Fimo.  These modeling clays are not near as perishable or fragile as the traditional bread dough ornaments I had seen over the years.  While I have never had a formal art class, I have always relied on my own sense of creativity, observation, and experimentation for inspiration. 


What started out as a hobby has since grown into a family business.  Together, my husband Jerry and our two children, Scot and Jamie, work together to design, create, and sell our beautiful creations all over the Southeastern part of the United States and beyond. 


We are very blessed to remember the Christmas season and what it is truly about.  It is truly a blessing to share this loving time with all our loyal customers. You really feel like you are a part of our family. We hope to see you soon!


Merry Christmas!
