Make It a Handmade Christmas 2020 - Week 12




Tick . . . tick . . . tick.  According to the Christmas clock, there are now only 16 (!!!) days until Christmas!  It’s hard to believe that December is already here and, with it, the last week of the Countdown to Christmas 2020.  The Countdown has been graciously hosted by Julie and Blue of Blue Morning Expressions on their The Blu Print blog. Yes, Week 12 has come and gone and 33 artisan handmade items from 11 artists were left in its wake, any of which will be perfect for a Christmas gift that was carefully created from the heart.  Support handmade 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 the items, in an order determined by drawing numbers from my trusty numbers bowl (except those that are really late in posting).  I hope you love each and every handmade beauty.
