New Christmas Ornaments

With just a little over 6 weeks until Christmas, I've been working on getting all my holiday items in my shop. Recently I've added several new Christmas ornaments.

This fishing lure did so well for Father's Day that I thought it would make a great addition as an ornament as well.

And this year I went with a service theme for the rest of the ornaments. Currently listed in the shop are Police, Fire Dept. and EMT. Each ornament can be personalized with any wording on the back.


And soon to come are military ornaments in Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force.

Christmas Deadlines

Can you believe Christmas is less than 8 weeks away! It just doesn't seem possible.
I know Halloween just got over and Thanksgiving isn't even here yet, but it's not too early to start thinking about Christmas gifting, especially if you plan to order personalized items.

Christmas Deadline for Handwritten Recipe Cutting Boards is December 1st.

And Christmas Deadline for all other personalized items will be December 10th.

Please plan ahead if you would like to order personalized items for your loved ones this year :)

I think I say this every month, but how can it already be November! Luckily our weather has stayed gorgeous, so it makes it really hard to believe that winter is almost here! October was a crazy, busy month and things are only going to get busier around here.

I had three craft shows in October, so much of the month was spent prepping for and attending said shows. My first two shows were awesome! I hit a personal best at my first show and did even better at my second show. So the month started out great. My last show left much to be desired. There wasn't the usual advertising, there was construction in the area and it was a pretty sad day for most of the vendors. I'm glad my first shows went so well, but it was a sad way to end my show season for the year.

I introduced some new pieces at this last show. I was happy with the display and will hopefully be adding a few of these to my Etsy shop as well.

The entire month wasn't spent just working though. My mom and I were able to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather a couple of times. We attended a craft show at a local winery on my weekend off from shows. It was nice to be on the shopping side of the table...and getting to enjoy wine while we shopped :)

We also attended a wine/craft night at a local boutique with Jesse's mom. We made a string art design that looks like a feather or a leaf depending on how you designed it. I went with my standard pink and teal...of course.

Now it's time to get ready for the crazy holiday rush. I've been stocking up on supplies and hopefully have everything in order.
How was your October?
