Christmas in July 2024 - Artisan Handmade Gifts - Week 3

 

 

It’s a bit over halfway through the year and Christmas will be here before we know (just like in years past!).  Because of this, it’s never too early to start shopping for unique holiday gifts for a loved one!  Santa will be clattering around with his herd of reindeer in about 5 ½ months - actually 166 days (from when this blog was posted) according to the ever ticking CHRISTMAS CLOCK.  

 

Artist friends were asked to participate in a “Christmas in July” promotion, sharing three items - one that was “Christmasy” (in design or colors, etc.) and two others that didn’t have to be.  Last week, Christmas items were showcased in a new blog.  This week the items are a mixture of Christmas and non-Christmas creations.  Since many of these beauties 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 artists for even more wonderful items that are handmade or designed from the heart.  Hopefully items featured here or in the shops will make it into your shopping basket.  Buy for a loved one . . . and be sure to treat yourself!   Remember:  SHOP SMALL and SHOP HANDMADE!

 

 

 

Christmas in July 2024 - Artisan Handmade Gifts - Week 2

 

 

Christmas seems to arrive earlier and earlier each and every year.  Because of this, it’s never too early to start shopping for those perfect holiday gifts for a loved one!   Believe it or not, the jolly man in red and his reindeer show up in a little over 6 months - actually 173 days (from when this blog was posted) according to the ever ticking CHRISTMAS CLOCK.  


Christmas in July has become a big thing in stores on line stores and all over social media, so I decided to host one here on my Shadow Dog Designs blog.  I asked artist friends to share three items - one that is “Christmasy” (in design or colors, etc.) and two others that don’t have to be.  Each week, one item will be showcased in a new blog, this being the first blog featuring a Christmasy item from each artist.  Since many of these beauties 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 that are handmade / designed from the heart.  Hopefully one or more items featured here, on the next two blogs or in the artisans’ shops will make it into your shopping basket.  Buy for a loved one . . . and treat yourself!   Remember this year:  SHOP SMALL and SHOP HANDMADE!

 

 

 

Christmas in July 2024 - Artisan Handmade Gifts - Week 1

 

Welcome to Christmas in July!  This is a month long promotion and will help build those all important back links to your shop.  It's a bit different from the Countdowns we have all done since we will be concentrating on only 3 items from each participant for the month.  Choose 1 Christmasy item and 2 others (or make them all Christmasy if you want).  If you don't necessarily have a "Christmas" item, choose something with Christmas colors, etc.  Be sure to choose 3 favorite items that you really, really, really want to establish a lot of back links to so they can be found more easily on Google once the holiday rush is on.
