Making for Christmas

Someone said it's only eight weeks til Christmas. Help! So much to make so little time.

 I need to make jewellery and it's something I never seem to get round to. I've been making Fairy Boxes - just need to finish those off and those fairies pictured above - 12 done, eight more to go. I've done childrens' jewellery - all the easy stuff. Jewellery seems to require a lot more thought but while I'm actually making I love the feeling of time standing still. Totally absorbed in what I'm doing. I think lots of people experience this, it's like a form of meditation...

This year I have some truly gorgeous handmade items from makers new to the shop. I'll share those beauties and more about the makers in my next post.
