Handmade Monday: that time already?

So, this week I've sold some snowflakes

and some snowmen

and not to the same person.  I guess someone is trying to tell me it's time to get organised for the big shopping, eating and relative visiting event at the end of the year.

Seriously though, I was quite sad to see the snowman off on their way to Scotland.  I haven't got anymore of the blue keishi pearls that are suitable for scarves waving in the breeze, so they won't be repeated.  I've got some more in the Folksy shop but done with gemstone chips and howlite beads - they look a bit more like they've been made by a professional snowman builder.  Last year, I tried to rebrand them as 'snowpeople' in the interests of equality and diversity, but it didn't seem to work.

While it's moving towards winter for some, lots of folk are still in summer festival mode, and these little cord and charm bracelets are still proving really popular.  I had a custom order for two at the weekend.

I don't know if people will still want to buy them after the summer festival season is over.  What do you think?

The butterfly is my favourite.  I've never seen a stressed butterfly, so I reckon they must be quite wise!

Here's the link to see what other crafty people have been up to this week.

  1. Gorgeous makes as always and so so professional. A very talented and clever lady you are.

  2. Love that Russian doll! I'm always surprised that people buy quite a lot "out of season" - summer festival things migt also sell well at Christmas, I notice my summer-themed things always have a boost for Christmas x

  3. Really pretty earrings, I love the snowflakes :0)

  4. Such pretty jewellery. I think people would still buy even tho winter is fast approaching as everybodies taste is different.

  5. Oooh, the snowflake earrings are really gorgeous. Hope you have a good week.

  6. I think your bracelets should go well at Christmas. They are what I call impulse buys. You go looking at one thing then buy about three others :)

  7. Beautiful earrings. I think the bracelets are a trend thing and so will be worn all year.

  8. Snowmen are adorable! I can see why you were sad for them to leave :)
