Make It an Artisan Handmade Christmas - Favorites - Week 6, 2023

 

 

It’s hard to believe that we’re already half-way finished with the twelve week Countdown to Christmas 2023!  Yikes!  That means Christmas is bearing down on us and will soon be here.  According to the ever ticking Your Christmas Countdown Clock, there are only 53 days (as of today) until Santa and his merry herd of flying reindeer arrive once again.  With the rapidly approaching holiday season in mind, Julie and Harry of Blue Morning Expressions continue to host a twelve-week Countdown to Christmas 2023 of artisan handmade items on their Buy Handmade from Makers blog.  Start your holiday shopping now on the Countdown - a perfect place to buy unique gifts.  This week, 39 handmade / designed items from 13 artisans were shared in the wide-ranging gift collection: jewelry of many different styles, fine art prints, gift card / money holders, tote bags, writer’s sweatshirts, lampwork glass beads and Christmas ornaments.  A wonderful motto to follow: SHOP EARLY and SHOP OFTEN!  And, most of all, SHOP HANDMADE to support small indie businesses.


In addition to saving each handmade item from the 12 week Countdown collection to my handmade Christmas Pinterest board and Twitter feed,  I pick a favorite item from each artist (hard to do!) and feature them here on my blog.  Here  are my favorites for Week 6:
