Make It an Artisan Handmade Christmas - 2022 - Week 7

 

 

 

 

It is so hard to believe (at least to me - how about you?) that this is the first day of November . . . . and that we have only 5 more weeks of the Countdown to Christmas 2022!  It’s also hard to believe that Christmas will be here before we know it.  According to the ever ticking Christmas clock, there are only 53 days until jolly Santa Claus drops down that chimney and either leaves wonderful gifts or lumps of coal for deserving or not-so-deserving boys and girls.  Since Christmas is less than two months away, 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 everything is handmade from the heart, we truly appreciate each and every order!

 

 

 

Make It a Handmade Christmas 2020 - Week 10

 

 

Wow!  Christmas Eve will be here in 30 days!  And there are only two more weeks left in the Countdown to Christmas 2020!  Where does the time go? The ever ticking Christmas clock doesn’t let up and keeps ticking down those seconds until Santa and his herd of reindeer make a nighttime visit to leave gifts or lumps of coal. The Countdown is the place for handmade artists to share three of their beautiful (often one of a kind) creations. Need a perfect start to your Christmas shopping?  Shop the Countdown to Christmas: browse and purchase that special piece for that special person! An excellent motto to follow this holiday season: SHOP EARLY, SHOP OFTEN! And, most of all, SHOP HANDMADE from small artisan shops! 

 

 

 

Keeping Warm with Artisan Handmade - Three for Thursday

 

 

As everyone knows, winter definitely arrived last week with extreme bone chilling, record breaking temperatures in a huge swath of the United States.  Except . . . (I almost hate to say this) . . . in the Desert Southwest. I won’t even mention the weather we got to enjoy while watching news features of people bundled up head to toe while trying to find and dig out their cards from under several inches of snow.  My husband and I lived in Canada for a few years and got to experience those sub-Arctic temperatures first hand . and . all . the . shovelling . of . snow. Been there, done that! I’ll take our sunny desert winters anytime these days.

Christmas Art

 

 

 

More than usual this year, I have been drawn to Christmas / Yule art, especially those pieces with an Old World feeling and those with animals.  It's even better when St. Nick or and angle has an animals with him/her! I have pinned quite a few Christmas beauties on a couple of my Pinterest boards.  After browsing them, I decided to share a few with you. I’ve included the artist’s name and/or link - only fair. I hope you enjoy these and that they put you in an even more festive frame of mind.  MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY YULE!
