Christmas is barreling down on us - it will soon be here!  Week 9 of the Countdown to Christmas 2021 has come and gone and the ever ticking Christmas clock doesn’t let up.  According to what it says today, Santa and his traveling buddies will start their journey in only 38 days, just five weeks from now!  The Countdown is a place for handmade artists to share three of their beautiful (often one of a kind) creations and then promote each other.  Need a perfect start / end to your Christmas shopping?  Shop the Countdown to Christmas to browse and purchase that special piece!  An excellent motto to follow this holiday seasonis : SHOP EARLY, SHOP OFTEN!  And, most of all, SHOP HANDMADE to support small, indie shop owners! 

 

 

 

Make It a Handmade Christmas 2021 - Week 7

 

 

It is so hard to believe (at least to me) that November has already shown up and that we have only 5 more weeks of the Countdown to Christmas 2021!  It’s also hard to imagine that Christmas will soon be here.  According to the ever ticking Christmas clock, there are only 52 days, less than 2 months until jolly Santa Claus drops down that chimney and either leaves gifts or lumps of coal for deserving or not-so-deserving boys and girls.  Since Christmas is looming, now is the perfect time to start your holiday shopping and the Countdown is the perfect place! Remember this motto: SHOP EARLY, SHOP OFTEN! And, most of all, please BUY HANDMADE from small indie business owners!

Since it seems Christmas gets earlier and earlier every year, it’s never too early to start shopping for those perfect holiday gifts for a loved one!  According to the CHRISTMAS CLOCK, there are only 167 days (from when this blog was posted) until the jolly man in red shows up again.  I’ve pulled together a CHRISTMAS IN JULY selection of artisan handmade gifts, many one of a kind creations.  Since many are one of a kind, be sure to shop early (and often) so you don’t miss out.  And please visit the shops of the artisans featured for even more wonderful creations, beauties that are handmade from the heart!

Autumn Beauties - Artisan Handmade Three for Thursday

 

 

“Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower” . . . Albert Camus


 

Even though it still is getting into the low 90’s here in the Desert Southwest, the mornings have begun to fill with the glorious tentacles of autumn.  Everyone I know wants to linger as long as they can outside, sipping their coffee or tea, reading the newspaper, or, like me, just sitting and taking it all in.  Not as many hummingbirds are practicing gluttony at the hummingbird feeders. Am assuming many are winging their way further south for the coming winter. I’ll miss them - a bittersweet goodbye.  Fall is just around the corner.
