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 - Artisan Handmade Gifts - 2023

 

 

Since it seems Christmas arrives earlier and earlier each and every year, it’s never too early to start shopping for those perfect holiday gifts for a loved one!   Believe it or not Christmas with the jolly man in red and his reindeer show up in about 6 months - actually 164 days (from when this blog is posted) according to the ever ticking CHRISTMAS CLOCK.  I’ve noticed quite a few “Christmas in July” promos and such at stores and on social media, so I decided to host one here on my Shadow Dog Designs blog.  I asked artist friends to share two items - one that is “Christmasy” (in design or colors, etc.) and one that doesn’t have to be. 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 from the heart.  Hopefully one or more items featured in the Christmas in July - Artisan Handmade Gifts - 2023 (or in the artists' shops) will make it into your shopping basket - treat yourself or someone else!  And remember this year:  SHOP SMALL and SHOP HANDMADE!

 

 

 

Christmas in July 2023

 

 

If you would like to participate in the “Christmas in July” promotion, share two of your items to the InLinkz below.  Please make one “Christmasy” either in design, colors, etc.  The other doesn’t have to be a Christmas design . . . but it can be if you want.  If you do participate, please promote all items on at least two social media sites.  And do the same for the blog I'll pull together featuring your items by the end of next week.  Please tag with #ChristmasInJuly if you tweet out the items so they can be easily found and RTd.  The InLinkz ends this Wednesday, July 12, at 5:00 MDST.   I hope to have the blog finished for Friday’s Twitter Tree.   I look forward to seeing your wonderful items!
