Some New Charms

A little late, but better late than never. Here are some of the charms I created for the holidays this year. Its been really busy, so I haven't had much time to work on more designs. Maybe next year!

Here are my adorable Bumbles.

And a close up! So grumpy!

A herd of Rudolphs.

The Gang!

Candy Cane Lollypops are a delicious treat.

They make super cute earrings.

There were many other designs in line to be worked on, but December has just flown by and time is winding down. I am going to try and finish up the last ones I started, some festive trees.

Just in case though, hope you all have a happy holiday!

The Holidays Are Approaching

Now that Thanksgiving has passed and the weather is turning colder, neighbors are building elaborate festive lawn displays. The holidays are coming. Every morning since black Friday I wake up and reevaluate what needs to be done. Most of my shopping is finished, but there is still quite a bit to be completed. Hopefully I will be done with it all soon, so I can relax. I refuse to be running around pulling it all together on Xmas eve like last year. I want to be able to relax a little bit this time.

As like everyone else, the budget is tighter this year and some things have to be forgone. We have to be more selective about what we do for friends and family. A stocking stuffer or two less, more humble presents, makes for a more creative holiday. To try and help save a little money I am going to continue to offer the Free Shipping coupon and $2.00 off coupon thru December. If you are trying to purchase something as a gift make sure you leave enough time for it to be shipped.
The coupon codes are available in the previous post and are also listed on the website.

There has been quite a bit going on these last few weeks that I haven't had as much time as I would like to have to work on some new designs. So far I have only one new charm finished. I started a new one last night. Unfortunately, unless I neglect everything else for the next couple days, including sleep, I don't think I will be able to have enough inventory to do the show on December 5th that I was hoping to do. Perhaps I will call just to see if there are any more tables left and go from there. The new charms will be listed in the shop soon. Fingers crossed.
