Make It an Artisan Handmade Christmas - 2022 - Week 12




Tick . . . tick . . . tick . . . tick . . . tick.   According to the Christmas clock, there is now less than 3 weeks (18 days!!!) until Christmas is here!  It’s hard to believe that almost a week has already gone by here in December, and, with it, the last week of the Countdown to Christmas 2022.  The Countdown has been graciously hosted all these 12 weeks (and many years) by Julie and Harry of Blue Morning Expressions on their Buy Handmade from Makers blog. Yes, Week 12 has come and gone and 30 artisan handmade items from ten artists were left in its wake.  Any of the beauties will be perfect for a Christmas gift, one that was carefully created from the heart.  Support handmade independent artists by helping Santa make it a HANDMADE CHRISTMAS this year!

In addition to saving each handmade item from the Countdown collection to my Pinterest board and Twitter feed, I decided to share one item from each of the artists who participated this week.  Here are my picks of this week's items.  I hope you love each and every handmade beauty.

Thank YOU So Much!

So many thanks go out to you for your Tuesday blog posts! I know everyone appreciates it. :) Have shared all of these goodies with everyone across the universe. I appreciate you adding my Sister thimble to the post. It's a popular one! I have evidence of it starting in 2012, but I thought we did one on the Checked In Today blog earlier, but I don't see it, so at least 10 years! Happy holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah to all! Many treats to Lizard Chaser from Travelin' Pup.
