A Christmas Camel on Ice Skates!

We added another "critter" to our Laughing Tree ornament collection at , although I'm not sure critter is the best term for this one. John's designed a colorful, funky Christmas Camel that's ready to hang on someone's tree. This one is sure to make your tree laugh! We call her Carmen camel, and she's wearing not only a Santa hat but is sporting her shiny blue ice skates. She'll be stylin' as she waits for an oasis pond to freeze over, lol. This would be a truly unique and humorous gift for that hard to buy for person on your list!

You'll find more unique ornaments and magnets in our shop. We'd love for you to come and browse for a bit!

Laughing Fridge has ventured into the ornament business so now you can make your tree laugh, and not just your fridge!

In our Etsy shop we have listed a few ornaments already. We are also offering a customization to turn any magnet in our store into an ornament.

There are 2 options:

1. We can simply take the magnet off the back and paint it one color. Once the painting is finished, we add sparkly glitter, drill a hole, spray the back with clear gloss lacquer, and add an ornament string.

2. We take the magnet off and paint the back to match as if you were looking at the magnet character from behind. This entails a bit more detailed work. Once the painting is finished, we drill a hole, spray the back with clear gloss lacquer, and add the ornament string.

Voila! You can have a really unique ornament for your Christmas tree, or give it as a fun gift!
