April – New Arrivals

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

April is the month of celebrations! Celebrate new arrivals from members of the Christmas In July team.

KistaT from KistaTJewelry says:

This is a spring jewelry set in bright purple blue.
Some time ago I made my first bead embroidered butterfly. I used drop shape glass cabachons that I color myself and seed beads. Technique I use is bead embroidery, so all these beads are stitshed by hand one by one. This one is my 9´th butterfly. Design is the same, as I love this so much, but colors and beads varie every time.
I made also two pairs of matching earrings. Bigger ones are luxury, also bead embroidered and suitable for some special occasions. The other pair is simple lever back cameo earrings.

Kristen Sargent from KestrelCollection says:

This lovely bracelet is natural fresh water pearls in a light pink shade. With silver plated details like spacer beads, clasp, and wing charms.

I made this 9 inches long as I know some plus size ladies would like a little extra length in a bracelet so it drapes nicely. This size also means it could fit as an ankle bracelet for a teenager. I am also happy to adjust it as needed for the buyer.

What a treasure by Wedgwood! This is an absolutely beautiful small oval trinket dish in Jasper ware. This was just recently found at a local Estate sale.

I’ve been making small crates for years for gifts using barn wood it wasn’t until I decided to build one and add corks to it that it came together.
Makes a great planter, napkin holder, hostess gift too!

Lin Collette from rhodyart says:

The story behind this particular magnet is that one of the very first magnets I ever made was a mustard themed one. A buyer asked me if I could make her a ketchup themed magnet and of course I said yes. I made an additional one and sold that, but didn’t add a new one until now. Actually I just added another besides this particular magnet. Of the two this is my favorite just because of the little girl’s expression

I actually don’t like either mustard or ketchup all that much myself but I just love the thought of someone liking something so much that they add it to everything.

Carola Bartz from CarolaBartz says:

I love to spend time at the ocean, and I love to journal. Nothing better than sitting at the beach, listening to the waves and writing down my thoughts – perhaps after some beach combing and finding all those lovely treasures like shells, sanddollars, seastars, interestingly shaped driftwood. All of this inspired me to make this journal.

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.

KistaT from KistaTJewelry says

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.
