Contributor post by Dawn of DeeDeeDeesigns

Welcome new members from January to March…. in the future this will be a monthly member introduction.

Rebecca from BroomHildasCloset joined the team on February 25th, 2015. Although feeling a little overwhelmed Rebecca loves the team and is finding her fellow teamies ‘wonderful’.

Rebecca and her creative team make all sorts of items, from Stockings to Day of the Dead Masks. They design and make each item and no two items are ever alike. They are constantly adding new hand created items to the store, so keep on the look out!

Angie also joined in February and is looking forward to participating in the team. Her passion is creating pet paintings with colorful character & a touch of whimsy. With each painting Angie strives to capture the energetic and lively personality of cats and dogs. Angie is also happy to do custom pet portraits, so if you have a special furry (or feathered) friend visit her store PetArtByAngie and let her know.

I am also a new member, having joined in March. I came in as a team leader so that I could contribute to the blog, as well as participate in the team generally, and this is my first post. My shop is DeeDeeDeesigns, and I make unique one of a kind ceramic tableware and jewellery, and original art gift cards. I also make jewellery from upcycled components. I am also happy to fulfill custom orders, so if you can’t see what you need, just let me know.

March – New Arrivals

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Spring arrives this month and with the new season comes many new arrivals from members of the Christmas In July team.

Broom Hilda from BroomHildasCloset says

Hi, I’m new here to Etsy and this Team. My name is Rebecca, and I started making masks about 2 months ago out of household scraps. This one was designed for St. Patrick’s Day and I chose this design and these colors because they were my Dad’s favorite colors, and he is deceased. Thank you.

In Estonia this winter has been very warm. We had some snow, but now it is gone. And some spring flowers are already flowering. So there is a little spring in the air already. And this set of earrings and necklace is also a little spring like with it´s pale green color palette.

Sarah McPhee from PleasantStStudios says

I was at a Christmas show and a wonderful woman came up to me and asked me if I could make six infinity bracelets for her daughter’s bridesmaids. I chose 12 gauge sterling silver wire and started to work on it. This is the result. I lightly hammered the bracelet so that it really reflects the light. I also plan to offer add ons with it like a hammered fine silver heart and/or an initial charm. Right now I am happy with it as is. I am drawn to simple designs and this bracelet fits with my aesthetic.

Tracy from LittleShopofColor says

Since almost the first day of my voyage in creating digital products, I’ve liked colorful things and especially patterns such as swirls and squares. I’m not a huge fan of chevron, I will admit it.

These swirls and squares papers remind me of all things spring and Easter, and with all the super frigid cold we have had in Ohio and all the snow, I am definitely ready for spring.

The pastel colors in this pack of papers make them good for almost any occasion including spring, Easter, new baby, get well cards, and more. Check out my shop for similar items!

Lin Collette from rhodyart says

It’s a small collage, 3×3 inches on a canvas board and is designed to fit nicely on a desk, shelf, or any kind of niche. It comes with its own little easel too.

I am owned by 2 cats, Junior and Maggie, and so my shop does feature the occasional cat themed item. The cat on this piece (a reproduction of Victorian scrap) resembles Junior and since Junior is king of the house he wears a crown to befit that status.

Junior is not just content with his fame in my building (he’s a rescue from the street, has been in my life for 7 years, and is very very friendly) but he wants someone to do a reality show about his life. I’m afraid the show would be quite boring as he sleeps much of the day, but he doesn’t believe me and says lots goes on when I’m not there or when I’m sleeping.

It’s pink because I love pink. The items are quite basic, a button, scrap, and a fabric rose. I made it because A. I love cats; B. cat items sell in my shop; C. I love cats. By the way, the paper background is imported Indian paper I got from a local art shop.

I opened my shop last summer to help pay for my new barn. We’re downsizing and my loss is your gain. These 2 items need a loving home they came off the family barn when we had to tear it down due to sagging roof and age.

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says

This is the first product I have listed in my store with this particular glaze. I don’t know why because I actually LOVE this glaze!

This cup is wheelthrown and fired to stoneware temperature making it oven, dishwasher and microwave safe. Being stoneware it also has great thermal properties to keep your tea, coffee, coup or hot chocolate warm. The matching spoon rest/tea bag holder can also double as a lid if you need to leave your hot beverage – making it great for the workplace.

I have other colours in my store, so feel free to convo me if you would prefer a different finish.
