2012 Hallmark Club Member Exclusive Ornaments

Hallmark Keepsakes recently unveiled the 2012 Hallmark Club Member Exclusive ornaments and we are very excited to share the news here on the Hooked on Ornaments blog!

(Christmas Window sculpted by Nina Aube, Who-o-o Doesn't Love Snow sculpted by Tammy Haddix, Notable Nutcracker sculpted by Joanne Eschrich)

The 2012 Keepsakes of Membership include Christmas Windows #10 "Jangles", Who-o-o Doesn't Love Snow (appears to be a Snow Buddies Complement) and Notable Nutcracker (a nice complement to the 2003 Nutcracker Soldier and 2004 Nutcracker King - previous Club Nutcrackers.)

Remember, you are allowed to pick two Keepsakes of Membership with your paid Keepsake Ornament Club (KOC) membership. You can add the third ornament for the regular price.

In-Store Signing Event Pieces

In April, Hallmark Keepsakes will announce the locations for the 2012 In-Store signings.
The two signing pieces will be available at each event. They coordinate quite well with Mrs. Claus' Cupboard.

During July, many people (non-Hallmark collectors) complain that July is too early for Christmas ornaments to be on retailer shelves. If they only knew how excited I get with each new ornament unveiled in January to March. I've barely gotten my ornaments packed safely away and I'm already excited about the new line of ornaments yet to be released. It's a little like Christmas morning, each newly revealed ornament is a little gift. The wonderful thing about being a collector is; I get the same 'new' thrill when I get to see that same ornament in person for the first time.

Watch the blog, the website and Facebook - we'll do our best to keep you posted with all of the latest Hallmark news.
