    Mary Stewart said it takes her only about 15 minutes to create each ornament, but the preparation takes a few months.

    A North Texas woman creates colorful ornaments from old Christmas.

    Mary Stewart said Positively Endeering was born after she went out to East Texas to chop down a Christmas tree.

    "And they had the disks that were laying in the ground; I picked a few of them up, and brought them home and they sat on the shelf for a few years," she said. "We finally started working on them, and it went from one thing to another."

    A North Texas woman turns old Christmas trees into ornaments.

    "I drive around the neighborhood and if they (Christmas trees) are out front, then I ring the door bell and ask if I can have (them) because I can recycle it," Stewart said.

    Stewart, who also works a part-time job as a nurse, is up to about 800 ornaments per year.

    And while Stewart said it takes her only about 15 minutes to create each ornament, the actual preparation takes a few months.

    Each ornament is crafted by hand, and each one a little different from the next.

    "We have babies' first Christmas, and the plain tree without the green background and then a simple dove, and I've started combining it for blended families, so I took the Christmas and made a menorah on it this year," she said.

    Positively Endeering ornaments are available in a very limited supply in Dallas at the Current Energy Store.

    Stewart said she is in the process of setting up her Web site and taking orders for next year, including a Santa Claus.
