5. Ice Skate Glitz Favors by Elisabeth Perez from LizPOriginals
Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!
According to Pantone one of the top colors for Fall 2018 is Russet Orange.
zizzybob from zizzybob says there are very few sellers on Etsy selling handmade quilt blocks. Most of those who are, are selling vintage blocks. I make blocks that I would use if I were making a quilt. Most of mine are appliqued, something that a lot of quilters don’t like to do. Here is a set of blocks just in time for fall.
Gari from BeadLoversKorner states I have very fine, flyaway hair and many times need bobby pins or hair accessories to keep the stray hairs in place. I also have tons of beads – so decided to put some beads on bobby pins! I loved them so much that I started making them to sell. These russet orange bobby pins, made with Carnelian, and perfect for fall colors and Halloween!
Karen from timetalentjewels said these sweet pumpkin beads are a wonderful reminder that fall/autumn is upon us. Russet Oranges, Golds and Browns greet us this fall. Pumpkins, Gourds and Corn-husks along with the fall breezes. Bonfires and Wiener Roasts, oh what fun,we will have!
Cristal from DesignsbyCristal states fall is all about seeing the old go into hibernation and waiting for the new to come out in the spring. I love driving up to the mountains in GA and seeing the tree-lined back drop of the amazing colors that fall brings such as the many hues of orange, red, and yellow.
The russet color mixed in with the brown really makes this dog collar pop and is a great add-on for your dogs fall fashion.
Patricia from TheOldBarnDoor said there is such a feeling of warmth to this color (and makes me think of apple pie because I use maple syrup) Our maple trees willingly put on a show for us in the early autumn.
Roses Workshop from RosesWorkshop states this gorgeous toiletries bag combines a lovely Russet Orange with a paler tangerine in a traditional herringbone pattern. The result is a zingy, eye-catching Harris Tweed fabric that I have used for the outside of this useful washbag.
This wheel-thrown ceramic spoon rest has a beautiful “Russet Orange” underside that will add a hint of color to your kitchen! This piece is hand painted and hand carved. All materials are non-toxic, food-safe and lead-free. This is also dishwasher safe.
Orange always reminds me of the warm and earthen colors of autumn. And of pumpkins. Time spent at the pumpkin patch is one of the most beautiful things I remember doing with my family. Let the kids wear hand knitted pumpkin hats, sit on a big pumpkin surrounded by other pumpkins and you have the perfect photo shoot!
Ah, it’s that time of year again, where the children are excited to be starting or returning to a new year of education. Most likely, they’re sad that the holidays are ending but happy to be seeing their friends and meeting new ones on their first day. It’s a very special time for all and what better way to keep the memories, than with items from our talented team? And, let’s not forget the teachers! It’s a huge day for them too. Have a browse through the selection below and click on the photo to buy in Etsy.
We all send our good luck wishes for the little ones’ first day back to school.
Now that my daughter is grown and out of school, I don’t have to worry about the back to school craziness. Can’t say that I miss it either! Finding the perfect binder, the perfect notebooks and let’s not forget that some schools even have “recommendations” of what to buy that you must follow. That is not my idea of a fun time.
I do however, have a recommendation for you to consider! Back to school isn’t just about the students! How about the teacher too? Many teachers are seen carrying clipboards during the school year and here is a UNIQUE one that could be the envy of all the other clipboard carrying teachers! It features unique muted purple colors, a sense of nostalgia, is durable AND can even be hung on the wall when not in use. If your desk looks anything like mine, you’ll appreciate this!
This is a big seller amongst my teachers because of the inspirational words it speaks to them. I worked in the public school system and would see 90% of the teachers with lanyards around their necks that held keys to opening the classroom and cabinets where important belongings or school supplies were. This lanyard would be perfect. It can come as a one piece or a detachable (the key section comes apart). Either way it’ll be useful, yet fun and versatile.
Going back to school and having to remember so many things, and sometimes being stressed, I think this would make a bright and happy add on to Planners/journals and Backpacks.
Being a teacher, I know I needed lots of things to begin the school year, just as my students did…
I loved my magnetic handmade decoupaged mousetrap note holder that was on my whiteboard. It held reminders, papers to pass back, certificates, etc. I knew right where to go each period to grab what I needed without wasting time looking for something that I thought I put in a safe and handy place…not…
This reusable shopping bag will serve well for a good while. This handmade market bag will make a great back to school gift idea for a book fan. Without a doubt, it will be a perfect gift to a student.
Back to School theme crafts are fun to create with these fun School House Buttons.
As a teacher, I see that organization is truly one of the keys to students being successful and confident in their abilities. I love love love pencil cases, and create personalized cases for students.
Quilters are always looking for ideas to make their next quilt. Let’s suppose you wish to make a quilt for your child’s favorite teacher. Here’s a quilt block to get you started on your next teacher quilt, wall hanging or table topper.
This stone apple is a vintage find. When I found it, I thought that this will be an excellent traditional gift for a teacher. You can use it as a paperweight or just put on a shelf for display. A sweet and useful gift.
Hard to believe I’ve been making these over 20 years, but these are great for the walk or ride to school, and have an adjustable strap (or removable), a clip that can attach to a backpack, and insulate for hours. Several standard sizes, and custom sizes available. One woman returned to replace hers after a year on the playground! It had been dragged across asphalt, swung around by elementary school kids, and generally bullied!!! They’re great for keeping on a desk, kept near a lunch, fit into an auto cup holder, and if you keep your beverage in here with a tight fit, it won’t have condensation.
The wheels on the bus go round and round, all the way to school! Our fun to make foundation paper pieced school bus pattern could become part of a quilt, a homework folder, a tote bag, or a mug rug for the teacher’s desk. Just use your imagination!
When I think of a tree I think of something long-lasting,sturdy and ever-changing. The tree of life symbols are air, water, fire and earth and combine to create the life-giving power of the tree of life. The tree of life is said to have powers of healing, rejuvenation and sustenance.
What Tree of Life items do you have in your shop?
Rita from RitzySelection says the Tree of Life means foremost power. The first man-made objects made by nature’s treasures. Such is animal skin and wool. A Secret: The craftsmen, the ancient tribal culture, will continue to move into today’s urbanized, mechanized world. It is a tremendous treasure that we create day by day for the happiness of others! My advice is as follows: Let us plant a Tree of Life every day as much as possible!
Sandra from SDDigitalDesign said family – the roots of the tree of life. The tree symbolizes generations of families which begins simply as a seed. The seed sprouts, grows and branches out all the while giving life to many generations to come. It is a visual metaphor representing your life and the various elements that make it up–past, present, and future.
Nancy from EponasCrystals said the Tree of Life Earrings – We live in the country, so we have LOTS of trees. They are homes to numerous animals, provide shade and shelter, and are just magnificent to sit under! These earrings feature the tree of life symbol and are a luscious orange red color.
Mairi from mairidesign states a vibrant botanical illustration of a silhouette tree with colourful flowers and birds. The tree of life represents how we are connected to the world around us, as well as providing food, shelter and warmth for people, it is also a home for many animals and insects. With that, this pendant would make an ideal birthday gift, to mark the coming of age for teens and women who appreciate nature.
Deborah from BaubleandaButterfly says the Tree of Life symbolism has a long history, crossing many cultures as universal symbol found in many spiritual traditions. The tree has always been a symbol of life, renewal and energy. It stands for many things, including wisdom, protection, strength, bounty, beauty, and redemption, symbolic of the Creator as it sustains creation with its abundant fruit, protection and regeneration. Turquoise is considered a stone of friendship. It absorbs negativity, promotes honest & clear communication from the heart & is an excellent grounding stone. Good for healing the spirit & soul and it is known as a master healer stone.
Marta from GottliebTextiles said the embroidery on these bags are a Latvian ethnic sign Austras koks (shortly: tree of life) embroidered on the front of the bag. Austras koks also called Saules koks, which means the dawn or sun tree, protects the family and gives strength and counsel. The roots of the tree are associated with the underworld, the middle – the earth on which people, animals and other living things exist. But the crown of the tree is connected to the spiritual heaven. Usually this tree is an oak and symbolizes the sun’s path and the order of the world.
It’s All In Black and White – so perfectly opposite. As a monochrome form of visual arts, B&W images can be starkly contrasted black and white or combine black and white in a continuum producing a range of shades of grey called greyscale. The CIJ Team are delighted to share their B&W and Greyscale works of art, home decor and accessories.
Graphite pencil drawings. I usually present here my portraits of animals, but today I have something very special. Original illustrations that were presented in my exhibition of fairy tale illustrations. Drawings are framed in a beautiful wooden frame and passepartout. I attach a catalog from the exhibition to the purchased drawing.
I was originally commissioned to create this tea cosy as a thank you gift as they had a beautiful black and white kitchen, I added the pom poms as an extra special detail.
Here is one of my many Classic Black and White gift tag sets. The Butterfly set is one of my favorites.
I think these black and white hand painted by ME stemware glasses are so much fun…a great addition to anyone’s bar decor or saved for a special occasion. Here’s to YOU!
I love the graphic appeal of black and white! This clutch is fun and easy to carry! In a cotton print that I call foam and bubble with white background and black dots. It’s a nice little clutch for necessities on the go. Padded and with a wrap around strap that can go on a belt or slip over your wrist.
I love working with black color. The contrast on a white background is fantastic. Simple yet effective. This stippled phalaenopsis is delicate and will fit in perfectly in any home design.
This stylish cushion cover set will complete your black and white home interior design. Elephant cushion covers are made from black and white pattern cotton fabrics.One of them has black and white animal print, the other is made from black and white pattern cotton fabric blocks and has a white cotton block in a middle with beautiful oriental elephant embroidery.
This black and white chalkboard print fabric with words describing God was the perfect fit for my Bible tote bag. The fabric is so beautiful and a great conversation starter as it will have old and new Christians either asking questions or being reminded of the many names our God can be called by.
I think I created this because I think black is elegant and chic – and I didn’t really have anything in my shop with that precise touch of class.
What’s black and white and fabulous?
My love of film noir surfaced once again with these black and white curvaceous earrings. These uniquely shaped hoops are vintage black aluminum stamped with a snake skin pattern. The center cut out has an equally unusual shape. Inside each cut out is a gorgeous round white dangling freshwater pearl.
This black and white infinity scarf is ideal for the summer. The scarf is made of two fabrics. One side is white with little black Polka dots, the other side is black, embroidered with flowers and embellished with flowers in different black and white patterns.
Crochet yoga socks, yin yang gift. According to Taoist principles, the forces of everything in the universe are in constant motion. As the movement continues, each of the forces of energy gradually changes into the other, yin to yang and yang to yin. This is the cycle of all energy. When these opposite energies work in unison the way nature dictates, there is a perfect balance. The yin yang symbol of equal halves, one dark and one light, but also opposing forces come together to create and generate energy – life. Yin creates the form and grows it while the yang generates action energy and expands it. This is the bringing together of two halves to make a complete whole.
Black and white are great shades and they go with anything. For your special table décor on mantles and candles
this candle bling will make wonderful statement. Gift it with a candle to Friends and family or charming housewarming / hostess gift.
