Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit says:

Merry Christmas in July! We got in the spirit at the beginning of the month and Tatiana completed a few designs she has had in the works for a year. We originally planned to complete the design and list it for Christmas in 2016, but never found the time! We finally completed this design and will hopefully have a few more before December!

We offer 4 x 6, 5 x 7, and 8 x 10 sizes with every design available in portrait or landscape. Choose from our designs, submit your own inspired design requests, and include additional gift services including gift wrap, gift card, or an engraved gift message with any order shipping directly to your gift recipient. We take custom framing to the next level and love creating designs for any occasion or destination!

Susan-Sharon Passmore from MsPDesignsUSA says:

We’re celebrating Christmas in July with our brand new “Nutcracker Ballet” quilt pattern. The pattern features your favorite animal dancers, all dressed up in their costumes and ready for the performance. This whimsical Christmas quilt pattern is fun to make, and would be a great gift for someone who loves the ballet.

Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter says:

My new arrival is this cute Gingerbread Girl. I saw one and since I already create Yo Yo trees I thought I would create one of these… I made my own pattern and it took a bit of working with the yo yo’s as they are a bit different then the tree yo yo’s… but I came up with my own version of this cute ornament… added the button in the middle and a few other things done my way and she came to life. I hope she is a hit and many will enjoy her on their trees this Christmas. I am in love with her and made a boy version also.

pam colangelo from PearlsVintagebyPam says:

This pottery dresser knob was created by Mackenzie Childs in 1988. It features pastel, spring colors with a beautiful design. I am away at Cape Cod so I will miss the July Mackenzie summer barn sale. Here is a knob I recently purchased at a fundraiser sale. It would be perfect on a bathroom vanity, on a cupboard door or on a favorite dresser.

sugararmy46 from sugararmy46 says:

For a long time I was wondering whether to start a collection dedicated to family and I decided that I will take my chances with this one. It’s not only a father and a son matching outfit – to me it is a showcase of the moments spent together, all the stories told and all shared emotions – family always come first!

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says:

This is my newest item, listed yesterday. I had sold a few sets of printable journal pages, so I thought I would add another set in a different style. I used beach photographs from my own travels, so a bit nostalgic, and I added an overlay and the lines to write on.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Here’s a new photograph SLS listed April 1st. To me, it celebrates the sense of peace and hope that spring evokes. The photograph was taken at Berlin, Germany’s East Side Gallery. This is one of the largest outdoor art galleries in the world. Artists have painted murals on the remnants of the old Berlin Wall. Their art serves as social and political commentary over the years. Many murals reflect anguish and sadness, but other are signs of hope.

Rachel Elliott from flyingcheesetoastie says:

I’ve just launched a brand new range of glass creatures featuring beasts from the African Savannah. This little elephant is one of them and features a classic Paisley pattern which fills its silhouette shape. Usually I only make one new creature a year so to launch 3 in one go is a big step for me!

Corkycrafts from Corkycrafts says:

A couple of years ago I made a rectangle basket covered in corks. I have had several convos asking when I’d create another one so for the spring I added a new size “square” to my listings.

Carola Bartz from CarolaBartz says:

Last week I had surgery and couldn’t really do very much afterwards. I wasn’t allowed to do any strenuous work or lifting – pretty much rest on the sofa. So I took out my knitting needles and knit up this three-piece summer outfit for 18 inch dolls – a dress with a matching beret and triangle shawl. I love to knit doll clothes – it’s fun, fast and a good way to use up all the yarn I have. Too bad that my daughter is too old to play with dolls!!

Woolly Momo from WoollyMomo says:

This little hat is new in my shop and I’ve included it here because I absolutely loved knitting it.

I originally made one for a friend as she was looking for something to wear whilst n a snowboarding holiday and hadn’t found anything like it, so I jotted down a pattern and made her one instead!

I chose a really lovely, soft and fluffy wool that was a real joy to work with (so much so that I went back to my local wool shop and bought 6 more balls of it!), but it’s also machine washable.

She absolutely loved it and snapped so many photos of herself wearing it on the snowy slopes of the French Alps! Lots of people there and back in the London asked where she got it and wanted one too, so I made some more for them after they ordered some (using up all of my 6 newly purchased balls of this wool!) and this last one I thought I’d put in my shop and let someone else buy and enjoy too.

It’s lovely to look at and even nicer to wear and I like to think it binds up friends together and keeps us warm whether just out and about in our neighborhoods on a chilly day or on top of a huge snowy mountain!

Cathy Hahn from CathysCraftWorld says:

My 85-year-old mom has been staying with me for a year now. She has moderate dementia and I am her sole caregiver. I have very little time to create anymore or concentrate on my shop but I try. I really try to do my best to everyone and everything in my life (including my two kittens)!

These rings came to life when my mom left most of her jewelry in Florida with her cousin. She likes her jewelry very plain and simple. I wanted her to wear something feminine and colorful. I looked into the making of polymer clay flowers as I thought they were simply gorgeous!

I was determined to give my mom some color!
I made this set of two, the larger for me, the smaller for her (I knew I could only push my luck so far)!

She loves her ring

I’ve made duplicate designs and sets since that my mum and I share so we both decided that, this , should be the first piece I sell as they were the first colors we loved and shared.

Marjorie Scenna from mscenna says:

April showers bring May flowers! This button pendant features a flower in the center with a swirly design that makes me think of spring or gardens. I love to work with buttons and when I saw these vintage look buttons, I was inspired to put them into a necklace. The brown and white combination is great for spring or summer!

 HealingHorse SouthernLight from FourDirectionsLight says:

People ask me to make a special item for a special need they have. I am a Herbalist. I feel a way I can serve and help others is through finding just the right synergy formula for the individual’s life and body. This is a lavender sugar scrub. It is a combination of different sugars as well as jojoba and other carrier oils. It contains a wonderful lavender based synergy formula. I know this products helps my sensitive skin as well as my inner core being. It helps others, as well.

When one has autism, Alzheimer’s Disease, mental health disease or dysfunction in their family, most of the time, a little herbal synergy goes a long way as a coping mechanism for these issues.

Blessings to all!

Valerie Brown from FirepanJewellery says:

I love color, so the Pantone list is right up my alley! I had an opportunity to turn the kiln on and now have new enameled earrings inspired by the 2016 colors! This is a fun pair I made by combining two colors of enamel, resulting in “Rose quartz + Serenity” earrings. This is a fun and easy way to bring the new color trends into your wardrobe!

VeeVee from VeeVeesCreations says:

These flowers are a personal favorite. I created this flower to represent spring and Easter. I used high quality lavender and sea-foam green jump rings to create the flower.

When I finished this flower, I knew that it would be a perfect gift for my own mother. She has always loved spring and lavender is one of her favorite colors. When my nieces saw this necklace, they all wanted one. It is a necklace that can be loved by woman of all ages.

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

I seem to be fascinated with pink at the moment. Although I don’t wear much pink myself, I find my self drawn to it. I made this bracelet with rose-pink nylon cord and pink pearls and Swarovski crystals. Very feminine and dainty.

Marjorie Scenna from mscenna says:

This colorful flower ornament and sun catcher features bright and fun colors like you might find in a spring garden or rainbow!

I began this ornament with the fun flower, a recycled clip-on earring. Looking at the colors, I quickly saw a rainbow of colors which made me think of spring flowers and rainbows, of course. The strand of colorful beads are a recycled and vintage mix with fun shapes and textures.

This would be a colorful accent for a window but wouldn’t it be a great accent in a garden too?

Debbie Gilbert from License2Craft says:

Having a full shop and selection of hot/cold therapy wraps & packs for all parts of the body, I realized and had several inquires about children’s packs. How did I miss this?

So, starting this month I have begun to start carrying packs with children especially in mind. It goes without saying that with children there will be bumps, bruises, skinned knees & elbows, fever, tummy aches and plan old “growing pains!” These Boo-Boo packs are all designed with fun, recognizable fabric patterns and sized just right for their tiny hands. They will want to use them…because they are just “so darned cute!” Making them a perfect gift for a new mom or to have on hand when the grand kids come to visit. These packs would also make a perfect children’s party favor.

Be prepared by keeping one in the freezer, and one on hand to pop in the microwave on a moments notice. You will be “the hero” with these packs for all their “Ouchies!”

ln these period here in Italy we are having many cloudy days, absolutely not cold, but so “grey”.

So, when l began new spring items, l needed cheery colors.
This is the first one l created: an orange flower arrangement in a natural wicker basket, to enhance a front door or decor a porch.

ln this decor l put the colors l need now: bright sun and green grass.

Megha Silvano from byTheArtBug says:

With this DIY tutorial you can make lovely real like paper Roses.

Perfect for weddings, Bouquets, decor, gift etc. and they will last for ever!

I have been making these flowers long before I opened my Etsy shop, after years of practice I am now sharing these with you, they look so real like and can be made in different colors according to the seasons. I have made these for almost everyone I know, all of my friends/Family members to whom I have gifted these had to touch them to believe they were not real! As soon as they get them they go on and grab the vase to fill will water and put them in ASAP!

Rheta Parziale from VintageEves says:

This is a vintage Watt Pottery creamer. I found it this month in a thrift store in New Hampshire that I love to poke around in. I chose it because I love pottery and Watt is a great old American pottery company. I actually did my own blog post on Watt Pottery.

Judith Messenger from FabriArts says:

I’ve been making little sets of fabric wallets for business/credit cards and tissue case holders. These would make a great gift for someone. They are both ways of “taming” what’s in your purse! The kleenex case holds either a travel tissue pack or can be used with folded tissues from a box. The card holder is great for many things – credit cards, business cards, library cards and especially to keep all those loyalty reward cards from making your regular wallet too full to close!

This set is made from a cute cotton print of brightly colored dogs on a black background, designed by Laurel Burch. Sure to be a favorite of dog-lovers!

Heather from ArabellaBlossoms says:

This is a denim zip pouch with a vintage-style stationery appliqué on each side. I designed and made this bag in a unisex style in response to requests for original gifts for men.

It could be used as a pen holder or pencil case, a gadget bag, or a storage bag for the car, office or home.

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says:

As well as making ceramic tableware and jewellery, I also love to make jewellery from upcycled components. I believe reuse and recycling is very important for the planet and try to incorporate it into my daily life as much as possible.

Therefore I am always looking for new ways to make beads from used materials…. my latest foray is fabric beads.

This necklace is made from a bead using fabric from an old dress of mine form the 90s. The wire is recycled cake decorating wire, and the lariat is a repurposed jewellery finding.

All of my jewellery comes presented in a handmade jewellery pouch, also made from upcycled material.

Valerie Brown from FirepanJewellery says:

I designed this brooch as my ironic take on the legend of amethyst. Ancient Greeks + Romans believed that amethyst protected you from drunkness (and either bejeweled their goblets or made goblets out of amethyst).

Absinthe is the storied alcoholic beverage, with an exaggerated reputation. The traditional way of serving it involves placing a sugar cube onto a specially designed absinthe spoon (with various piercings or slots). The spoon is placed over the glass with the absinthe in and water is dripped over the sugar cube until it is dissolved (and the absinthe is then diluted + sweetened).

So, I thought – what if you bring a legend to a reputation and have your own personal absinthe spoon with amethyst in it! Fun and ironic!

Of course, this is not a real absinthe spoon, and I would not recommend using is as such. However, it is a unique piece of jewellery that I designed, formed and hand pierced (with my jeweler’s saw) and includes a lovely amethyst cabochon! This brooch is very eye-catching!

Lia Russo from Ghirlandiamo says:

l have some very tiny wicker rings, so when l saw a doll house l thought a micro wreath could be a nice accessory!

l made this one thinking of Valentine’s Day, to add a romantic touch even to the doll house.

This miniature wreath may also be used for a diorama.

It’s completely handmade, as l personally made the clay hearts.

l left one of the hearts in its natural clay color, the other one l sprayed in red.

Either the two different colors and hearts position slightly remind the yin and yang idea. lt’s one-of-a-kind decor.

Woolly Momo from WoollyMomo says:

I put this new item up today. I spent most of Christmas knitting (it was bliss!) and made this up at my In-Laws’ home. They really liked it and I hope you do too. Plus I got to use my new pom-pom maker (a present from my Hubs) to make the pom-pom!

I loved this wool because of the lovely black flecks that run all the way through it and so when it’s knit up, it gives a nice tweed effect (which the in-laws loved)!

It would make a nice gift to keep a loved one nice and warm and cosy and as it’s made with acrylic wool it’s also suitable for vegans too. It is a really thick and soft wool so it’s lovely to wear.

Guitar string jewellery has been one of my most popular items since I introduced them about the middle of last year.

Here’s my latest addition to the range!

Lia Russo from Ghirlandiamo says:

I saw these so nice and so tiny pumpkins and immediately imagined them on a green meadow: it would be a nice contrast of colors!

So I prepared the base with some stabilized lichen (it means its real lichen treated, so that it remains always the same).

Some maple leaves with their stunning forms and shades completed my fall landscape.

I think it’s a colorful wreath to enhancing any front door in this beautiful period of the year.

I just added this tablerunner/wallhanging to my shop today. I’ve been working on stocking my shop with table linens such as tablerunners and placemats. I had been working in a more neutral pallet, and also finished a quilt this summer using earth tones. I wanted to make something much more colorful, so chose these lovely turquoise, blue and teal batiks for a set of placemats and the runner. The bright colors made me smile each time I worked on the set. These pieces could bring a touch of the Caribbean to your decor all year long!

Patricia and Rebecca from northandsouthshabby says:

Several  years ago I stumbled upon a similar big eared elf much like this one at a thrift shop – it was love at first sight! I have been obsessed with these elves ever since. ( Who am I kidding? I’m at the hording stage!) I soon discovered that these elves come in several sizes which range from large 7 inch ones, to tiny 2.25 inch pixies. The predominant outfit color is red, followed by white polka dot. There are a few blue and green outfits out there too, but not many. They were made in Japan, by a handful of manufacturers, who seemed to blatantly copy each other! All were made post World War II from the early 1950’s to the 1960’s. I haven’t been able to locate any locally of late and now engage in online bidding wars at estate sales.

To me this elf ( and the rest of his “cousins” in our shop) represent the quintessential nostalgic Christmas decoration. A little shabby, but bright, warmly conjuring up memories of bygone holidays. Guaranteed to bring a smile and lots Christmas cheer to any spot.

My town is close to Naples, which beauties and traditions are well-known all over the world.

One of these is Pulcinella, a mask who deals with life difficulties with a philosophy of his own.

Another aspect of Naples (but more generally of all South Italy) are our balconies, where you can see long cloth lines always full of laundry and bunches of chili peppers, hanging from a nail, to get dried under the sun.

So I tried to re-create this view, putting a ceramic Pulcinella on an imaginary balcony.

This beautiful ornament was inspired by my three-year old who requested that I make her one of my cluster pendants with her beads though bigger!

When I look at this particular ornament I see a wonderful Christmas gift for a special little princess.

I saw this vintage look print set and had to have it. It is a reprint, but totally brought back memories of my childhood and quilts that my mother had around the house that had been given to her. I had it in my collection for a while because I loved it so much, I could not bear to sew it. Then, one of my son’s asked about it, and I decided that it was too special to not share with others. I made one of these pillow cases for my house, and one for Etsy. Mine will be well-loved by two little boys at my house being dragged from room to room with them. I can’t wait to see where the other one will end up at!

This is a zipper case for 13 inch Laptop or Mac Book 13. Recently I learned how to use faux leather with fabric to create more sturdy bags for laptops.

Hope you will like it too!

Meet Dax the sassy dachshund!

When I saw the pattern in a yarn store I knew that I had to knit this cute little dog. I chose a rust color and happily knitted along. The process reminded me of my needlework class in elementary school that I hated! At that time I was knitting a polar bear, and the teacher ripped the whole thing apart because my stitches were too loose. I was devastated (I was 8 years old at that time) and completely discouraged. It took many years until I picked up knitting needles again – and I love it. This dog is my first complete knitted animal since that needlework class! I see him as a comforting cuddle toy for a little child. He sure gives those cuddles back!

I love making leather cuffs and have made many designs. Now I am making them to buckle in the back. This white leather is beautiful, thick and has ripples in it. I finished it off with a silver Tree of Life which has meaning for many cultures and religions. I like the symbolism.

The concept of a tree of life has been used in biology, religion, philosophy, and mythology. A tree of life is a common motif in various world theologies, mythologies, and philosophies. It alludes to the interconnection of all life on our planet and serves as a metaphor for common descent in the evolutionary sense. The term tree of life may also be also used as a synonym for sacred tree.

We started working with sea glass when living on the island of Guernsey where we collected gads of it at Ladies Bay. Now we’re in Florida where we’re inspired by the sunshine.

The soft Aqua Blue color of this Hawaiian sea glass is calming, seeming to change in every shade of light much like the sea does; The natural, organic shape is not manipulated in any way, only top-drilled then wrapped them in the “crazy” style with 925 sterling silver to honor the history that these pieces have seen over the decades tossed in the sea.

I made these to help earn money for my friends family. She passed away about 2 weeks ago and left a lot of doctor bills. She loved Lady Bug and was a wonderful woman. All the money made from these will go to her family.

It is spring time here in Australia. I love the flowers that come out this time of year and the beautiful scent in the air! I have not done quilling for a while and decided to get my quilling gear out. Being spring time I decided to make this set of floral gift tags, perfect for birthdays or to brighten someone’s day!
