Make It an Artisan Handmade Christmas - 2022 - Week 6



It’s hard to believe that we’re already half-way finished with the twelve week Countdown to Christmas 2022!  Yikes!  That means Christmas is bearing down on us and will soon be here - two months away!  According to the ever ticking Christmas clock, there are only 60 days until the jolly ho-ho-ho-ing Santa and his merry band of clattering reindeer arrive once again.  Now is the perfect time to start your holiday shopping and the Countdown is the perfect place to buy unique beauties!  Remember this motto: SHOP EARLY, SHOP OFTEN!  And, most of all, SHOP ARTISAN HANDMADE to support a small indie business!




Set of 8 Vintage Red Truck Christmas Gift Tags Handmade by Natalie of adorebynat



With the rapidly approaching holiday gift giving season in mind, Julie and Harry of Blue Morning Expressions are hosting a twelve-week Countdown to Christmas 2022 of artisan handmade items on their Buy Handmade from Makers blog.  The twelve week time period was chosen to correspond with the Christmas carol, "The Twelve Days of Christmas."  This week, 33 handmade items from eleven artsts were left in the wide-ranging gift collection: jewelry of all sorts and styles, artsy thumbtacks, photography, lampwork beads, crocheted baby gifts, gift tags, digital art and other beauties, many of which are one of a kind pieces.


In addition to saving each handmade item from the Countdown collection to my handmade Christmas 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 the items, in an order determined by drawing numbers from my trusty numbers bowl.  I hope you enjoy the rest of the shares:
