Favourite Items You Have Made

Contributor post by Julie from EveryoneLovesGifts0.

Everyone has a favourite item that they have made, you pride yourself over it and customers love it.

We at CIJ love to see pictures and know what Favourite Items You Have Made? Why is it your favourite? Below are some favourite items.

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital says: This is a new design, and one of my favorites because I just love the way the little flowers and vase turned out. I used the same image in a birthday card as well but with dots for the background. I’m having fun with new design techniques and this is one example.

Richard and Tatiana’s from DesignstheLimit says: Most of the decanters in our shop are 100% lead-free crystal and safe for storage, but we have one flint glass or lead crystal decanter available. Originally discovered by Englishman George Ravenscroft in 1674, the technique of adding lead oxide improved the appearance of the glass and made it easier to melt. The use of the term lead crystal remains popular for historical and commercial reasons. Lead crystal glassware was formerly used to store and serve drinks, but due to the potential health risks of lead, this has become rare. They are still beautiful works of art to be appreciated for their beauty and we have only one available while supplies last. We specialize in sandcarved wine and spirit decanters and offer a selection of design and font choices accepting custom order requests.

If you are looking for the ultimate gift for the men and women in your life, give a personalized gift that will be treasured and can be put to good use! We have a number of lead-free decanters available and look forward to working with you to build the wet bar of your dreams. Ship direct to your gift recipient with gift wrap and gift cards available!

Lida Pereira from lililapt says: This towel set of three pieces (small, medium and big) is my favourite, although I love all the pieces I embroider and/or crochet.

In my opinion, they are beautiful, the colours are fantastic and the quality of the material is exceptional. They were made WITH lots of LOVE!!!

Bathroom towel sets

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bevan Blackshaw from TimberDimensions says: Why is this stool my favourite? Probably because I am a fan of seemingly simplistic design. This stool operates like a finely tuned watch. The engineering involved to make the item work as intended is quite involved. I have, over time, evolved the making process to enable me to offer the item at a reasonable price with a high level of build quality. Soon to be available in three different height. Each change of height requires the reengineering of 4 elements to ensure that the item operates as intended. The devil is in the detail. I love it!!

Folding stool or side table

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says: I would have to say that my favorite part of being an Etsy seller is the chance I get to make custom art and signs. I really love helping make an event special. And I take pride in the fact that I work really closely with each customer to get their personalized print or printable just right.

Florals

Granny florals are making a comeback.

Here at Christmas in July team we wanted to know do you have any items related to Florals and what the story behind the item is.

Ina from InaSudjana says:

This made-to-match floral headband was designed originally to match Jennifer Paganelli’s Caravale Arcade fabric series.

It was designed as part of the Facebook Collaboration for a Cause 2015 Auction where handmade sellers formed groups to donate money raised to selected charities.

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns states:

I have lots of floral themed products in my shop, but I particularly like this daisy necklace. It is breezy and great for spring – and very hippie!! Maybe that’s why I like it!

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital discusses:

I was experimenting with creating vases in my digital art, and added flowers and a few ladybugs, and created this fun, colorful set of printable mini note cards with the designs. I still use them myself once in a while when I need a mini note card.

Sue and Misty from shabbyshopgirls says:

There are so many uses for floral sheets! We picked these up as we thought that they would be really pretty used as multi layered among other florals on a bed or re-purposed into pillows, slip covers, curtains, or clothing! We deal in textiles mainly, and love to purchase floral items!

Ginny C from GRCTreasures stated:

Saw this great table cover at a yard sale, the woman selling it said lots of family members had used this for years but it was time to pass it on. It reminded me so much of my kitchen decor in the late seventies when my daughter was born. Lots of happy memories there and there is something so cheerful about the colors, still bright after all this time.

Annie from DesignedbyAnneliese says:

I love flowers and floral things! When I saw a paper pad of florals I just could not resist getting it. I then had to think of something to make with it and thought these envelopes would be perfect!
