I have been collecting Crayola Ornaments for 27 years and ordered older ones off Ebay. It was a “series” for 15 years and now they make one every year. They also make “recolors and special ornaments some years. They are not as cute as they use to be but I keep collecting them. I had so many I bought a 4 foot tree just for them. This is my bedroom tree and I love it.
I think series are great- I have been doing “fairies” for Delaney for 11 years. Kris’s girls had a series (Pooh Book series) for 12 years that ended and now they get a “book” every year (6 years). Kelsie gets a “cook” ornament which is a cookie cutter design which is on it’s 4th year. I get “event” ornaments for Linda and I (like marriage one, camper, our first Christmas-1989), “Godchild” ornaments, remembrance ornaments for Matthew and surprise…I got one for Silvie that started this year (can’t say what).
