This month's challenge is brought to us by LeAnn of pasqueflower. Her theme is Prelude to the Holidays and she writes this about her challenge:
"October! It is time to start thinking ahead to the holidays -- Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year. They will be here before we know it!
This month, I challenge you to create a holiday-themed item. It could be a new listing for your Etsy shop, a holiday decoration for your home, a costume or special accessory for a holiday gathering, or a gift you intend to give to a friend or loved one.
Since "prelude" is a musical term, you could also make something music-themed if you wish."
I've known all year that I've wanted to add new ornaments to my shop
for the holidays. This challenge got my butt in gear to get them done early and listed in the shop!
I've only added one new listing, but I have several variations within the listing for buyers to choose.
I also plan to add a special set of ornaments for Baby's First Year as well. They will follow the same idea as these ornaments with the baby's name at the top, an image in the middle and the date at the bottom. I'm working now on getting several images together for parent's to choose from. I like to offer many options to make the ornament perfect for each buyer.
Thank you LeAnn for this month's challenge and for making me plan ahead for the holidays...I know we can all use that!
