Hi, my name is Holly. I make things. Compulsively. It is hard for me to not make things. Drawing, paintings, sculptures, prints. Scarves, hats, blankets, embroidery, food, drink, business plans, photographs, suggestions, jokes, portmanteaux. Although I love a quality minimalist, utilitarian, sleek design and execution, my own taste definitely runs toward the complicated, intricate, fancy. That is to say, ornate. Ornatelier is my new studio, new business, new blog, and new favorite portmanteau. This site is a showcase for my work, and anything wonderful that catches my eye. Expect plenty of neat things, including some reviews of products, events, or experiences. Although this might be my gallery / soapbox, your participation is quite welcome!

  1. Love the site revisions. For the record, since I really want to know which way is home, I prefer the “click here to read more” option as long as it takes me there – and – offers me a way back. It’s not just the orientation, it’s also that I want to know how to get back to the element/page for which I initially clicked. Map me, Baby!

    1. Good to know! I kind of like the click-for-more thing myself, because it is easier to decide if I want to read more, than it is to read *less*…

Tell me everything, darling!
