The Fall and Winter seasons mean so many different things to so many people it is no wonder that there are so many items made for celebrating these seasons. The best part of handmade items is that they all come from a special memory or from something they had or saw as a child. I have often said that I have never met a craft or art medium that I didn’t like so for me I always have a dozen projects that I am juggling and you can add another half dozen or more for every holiday. Most of my holiday projects get worked on during a month or two prior to the holiday they correspond with. Some people work all year long on their holiday projects but I tend to work better when I am looking forward or feeling inspired by the upcoming holiday. Unfortunately that means that between September to December I am working like a crazy person on all my Fall/Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Winter and Christmas projects.
For the bulk of this year I have been working hard to fill my store with lots of handmade, one of a kind items. Now most of these items have been jewelry. Jewelry has been my primary passion in the last few years. There is so many kinds of materials you can use and work with and so many ways to use those materials. There are also so many style of jewelry so I have really been addicted to trying are kinds of jewelry and materials. With all the jewelry I have learned to make, the list of the new types and kinds of materials I want to work with just keeps getting longer. The two I am most interested in doing more work with is wire wrapping and polymer clay. So hopefully by next year you will be seeing many more handmade pendants out of these materials. Since I have quite a few jewelry items in my shop I plan to spend the rest of the year filling my store with lots of other types of items.
I have lots of new items coming soon to my shop. Many new items for the holidays like wreaths and ornaments and other seasonal/holiday décor. I will also be adding items for the home like wine charms, wash cloths, bookmarks, and home décor, including original acrylic and oil paintings. I also have many more girly items to get up in my shop as well. This means more hats, scarves and purses, and pretty things for your hair and things to get those organized, key chains, ID and badge lanyards, and eye glass/sun glass chains and much more. Like I said I never met an arts and craft project I didn’t like. This is what is so great about being an artist, the possibilities are endless and so are the kinds of things we get to make and making them is what we live to do. So check out the over 150 items already in my store today and keep checking in to see all the new items I will be adding as fast as I can get them photographed and listed.
