Make It a Handmade Christmas 2021 - Week 12




Tick . . . tick . . . tick . . . tick . . . tick.   According to the Christmas clock, there are now only 17 (!!!) days until Christmas is here!  It’s hard to believe that a week has already gone by here in December, and, with it, the last week of the Countdown to Christmas 2021.  The Countdown has been graciously hosted all these weeks (and years) by Julie and Harry of Blue Morning Expressions on their The Blu Print blog. Yes, Week 12 has come and gone and 27 artisan handmade items from 9 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.
