Valentines Day Gifts - Artisan Handmade

 

 

Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it so it’s time to do a blog featuring wonderful gifts for a loved one.  If you would like to participate, please share two items that will make a perfect gift.  The items don’t necessarily have to be hearts and roses and pink and red such . . . just something that you think someone will love.  The link up closes this Thursday at 12:00 noon MST.  I plan to have the blog ready to be promoted on Friday’s Twitter Tree.  If you do participate, you know the drill . . . please promote each item and the blog on at least 2 social media sites.  I prefer you wait and promote when the blog is ready.  But even better . . . promote from both the link up AND the blog (that’s what I’ll be doing).  I look forward to seeing what you share!

 

P.S.  If you tweet, please use the hashtag #Valentines2023 so the items can be easily found and RT'd.  Thanks

Valentine's Day Gifts - Artisan Handmade

 

 

If you would like to participate in this promotional link-up, please leave two of your handmade items that will be a perfect gift for Valentine's Day.  I'll include both items on a Valentine's Day blog that will be finished and posted (hopefully) the end of next week.  The one rule is:  you must promote all the items to at least two social media platforms and also promote the blog.  I'll be promoting from here (tweeting and pinning) AND then tweet again and pin to a new board when the blog is posted.  Will also share the blog to Facebook.  If you tweet, please use the hashtag #Love2022 to make the tweets easy to find for retweeting.  The InLinkz will close Wednesday at 12:00 noon Mountain Time.

 

I look forward to seeing what you share!  Let's get some sales!

Three for Thursday - Artisan Handmade - September 16, 2021

 

 

It has been quite a while since I posted a new Three for Thursday . . . and for that please, accept my apologies.  It seems the days / weeks / months just fly by.  As with all Three for Thursday posts, three items from three handmade artists are featured.  This week, a fun combination of items were chosen:  upcycled Starbucks coffee bag purses from Sandra of SandraLeesHandbags; hand knit fingerless gloves by Jacki of Christe Cottage; and colorful lampwork glass earrings by me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.  If something catches your eye and you want more information and photos, please click the item picture or live link to be taken to the item in the artist’s shop.  Enjoy these wonderful picks!

 

 

 

Make It an Artisan Handmade Christmas - Week 12

 

 

 

Tick . . . tick . . . tick.  According to the Christmas clock, there are now only 13 (!!!) days until Christmas!  It’s hard to believe that December is already here and, with it, the last week of the Countdown to Christmas 2018.  The Countdown has been graciously hosted by Julie and Blue of Blue Morning Expressions on their The Blu Print blog.  Yes, week 12 has come and gone and 45 artisan handmade and vintage items from 15 artists were left in its wake, any of which will be perfect for a Christmas gift that was individually handmade from the heart.  Help Santa make it a HANDMADE Christmas this year!

Make It an Artisan Handmade Christmas - Week 10

 

 

 

Here we are at Week 10 of the Countdown to Christmas.  Only two more weeks left! The Countdown is a chance for mostly handmade artists to share three of their beautiful gift ideas and for all to browse and, hopefully, purchase.  The ever ticking Christmas clock doesn’t let up - according to it, Santa will start his journey in only 27 days!  Need a perfect start to your Christmas shopping? The Countdown is the place to do just that!  A good motto to follow: SHOP EARLY, SHOP OFTEN! And, most of all, SHOP HANDMADE!

 

Winter White - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

Tomorrow officially ushers in the Winter Solstice, first day of winter, at 9:28 a.m. here in Central Mountain Time.  Wintery weather has already frigid cold, ice and snow to many parts of the United States, with more predicted that will probably affect some Christmas travel.  We actually had an unexpected snowfall here in the Desert Southwest on December 7!  What started out as light rain turned into big, beautiful snowflakes falling out of the sky.  But by the late afternoon, most of the snow had already melted with the exception of the highest peaks of the Franklin Mountains.

Flora and Fauna - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

 

I have always admired Walter Cronkite on so many levels, but mostly as an intelligent and reliable newsman and as a vital, moral human being. Even though he died in 2009, I still remember his plain spoken grace in delivering the news, from moonwalks to war, assassinations to peace treaties and thusands of other topics. A favorite quote of his, made 2005 (but still oh so relevant today), is this one:

 

“I am joining the hundreds of thousands who shall be marching in the Virtual March on Washington to Stop Global Warming in order to demonstrate the concern that we all hold for the future of our planet and all the living things — flora, fauna, human and animal — that exist upon it. The governments of the world have tarried long enough, and the United States is scarcely without doubt the greatest culprit among them.  We the people have the strength to bring our country from our weak-kneed stumbling gait in the last ranks of reason to the leadership of the great march to environmental victory.”
