Treasury Tuesday -Something in the Winter Air

Today’s treasury I’d like to share is called “Something in the Winter Air.” It’s right here.  I have to be honest, I pretty much favorited every single item in this treasury. It’s cheerful and it actually made me feel that sense of Christmas is coming. Love this one. Check it out for yourself. These treasuries are cool ideas for decor and Christmas gifts.

Another is my own Cookies for Santa treasury. I’ve just finished my own cookies for Santa candle set, and I thought this treasury was a great way to express that theme. Let me know what you think of it. Oh! And check out my own cookies for Santa candle set right here.

Marvelous Monday Finds and $10 Off

It’s Marvelous Monday, the day that I share some marvelous finds I’ve come across as well as share this week’s special you’ll be able to take advantage of for a limited time. So anyway, let me tell you about some nice things I’ve run across.

If you’re a bit tired of the same old Vista Print templates and you’d like something a little edgy and unique for your business branding, KayleeBugDesign is your place. She has great looking business card templates that can be instantly downloaded and easily printed either on your own heavy cardstock (provided you have a great printer that will take such paper) or printed at your local FedEx or UPS type small business store. They’re affordable, cute, and you can even have them custom made!  One thing – she sends them to you as a PSD (Photoshop) file so you’d have to have Photoshop (or compatible) software to manipulate the file. Visit Megan at KayleeBugDesign to pick out a fresh template to make you stand out from the regular Vista Print crowd (wink wink).

Etsy Artisan, KayleeBugDesigns, creates attractive and professional business card templates.

Another cute find is this Red Elf Pointed Wook Hat, Bulky Chunky Wook Elfish Kid Knit Hat Hood and Shawl by Solandia. I love this hat because it’s cute and it looks like the coziest hat for a child to wear! It has a sweet little attached scarf and a pointed little elf-like top. This is a sweet little hat that I’d easily get for my 22 month old.

That brings me to this week’s special. Our autumn Facebook drawing will end this Friday (four more days to enter, Folks), and the girls and I have been getting Christmas candles in gear. So this week only, we’re offering $10 off a $50 purchase. So head over to our Etsy shop to buy some deliciously scented bakery candles and enter 10OFF50 in your cart to save $10 off your purchase of $50 or more. This offer is exclusively for you but please feel free to share it with a friend.

November First Already???

It’s the first of November! Can you believe it because I sure can’t. I mean it’s the sure sign that Christmas is really coming. As a store owner, I’m going nuts just thinking about it. Ideally, I would have my booths decorated, have the online shops all donned in holiday trimmings, have every booth and online store stocked, and be sipping on some cider in relax mode by now. NOT! I’m still looking in my messy craft room at all of the projects I was supposed to have finished by now!

So now my house smells like Christmas. I’m making gingerbread, cinnamon, orange spice, and some blue spruce candles, all of which are really nice when blended together. It’s only right to add some Michael Buble Christmas tunes. I’m big on the old Christmas music, Bing Crosby, Harry Belafonte, Lena Horne‘s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” My all time favorite Christmas music; however, is the choir music in celebration of Christ’s birth but I listen to that year round. There’s something about Christmas music that warms you inside. I need that warmth to get these projects a going, and it IS beginning feel a lot like Christmas in here.

There are at least ten new projects I have to get started on. I guess the plan is to take it one project at a time and get them up as I do them to keep from becoming overwhelmed and entering into complete shut down mode. In between, maybe I’ll get that cider and start to fix up my messy craft room. How do you deal with feeling overwhelmed during the holidays?
