Grenadine – Pantone Fashion Color For Fall 2017

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone one of the top colors for Fall 2017 is Grenadine.

PANTONE 17-1558 Grenadine

A powerful, evocative, dynamic red, Grenadine is a confident and self-assured attention-getter.

Vice-President of the Pantone Color Institute

Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Grenadine. They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

Grenadine reminds me of mellow beautiful summers!

I love the red crystal briolettes I used for these earrings because the facets reflect several shades of red, including grenadine. My inspiration was the romantic architecture of Italy and France which I translated into a modern style.

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says:

This bangle is made from upcycled guitar strings and vintage grenadine buttons, making it an ideal gift for people who are passionate about recycling, music or being vegetarian or vegan. The handmade gift pouch it is presented in is also grenadine in colour and is made from faux felt, so again is great for vegetarians and vegans.

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeSupplies says:

These seed beads are a stunning grenadine colour and are great for threading and sewing and are fantastic for adding a splash of glitter to your jewellery and craft projects.

Sue Kenny from SusySewandSew says:

My headbands can be fun to wear while keeping the sweat out of your eyes while you work-out. Who says you can’t look good when you sweat.

Diana from joliefemmebydiana says:

Ready for Christmas in July and Christmas with this bright red tote! Great sale price too! Can be used as decoration or as a re-usable gift tote too!

Jessica Mancuso from GusandOllie:

Please meet my gorgeous Grenadine Sock Monkey Lucio.

He loves being the center of attention – and can handle all the cuddles you’re willing to give him.

I simply loved the print on these socks and imagined them as a monkey immediately. They are the ideal injection of Spring/Summer into my 2017 collection. He’s also perfect to celebrate Independence Day.

Jeanne from TheSandlapperShop says:

I love the flocking on some vintage hankies like this one. Call it Grenadine or Christmas Red. I repurposed a vintage Christmas card to make a lovely folder for presenting the hankie.

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:

There is nothing like adding a little Grenadine to your holiday decorations! It gives you just the POP you need!

Emma Kaufmann from StudioEmmaKaufmann says:

I moved from the UK to Baltimore USA seventeen years and was surprised at how much bigger the robins are her:e. This artwork done in acrylic inks was done in nostalgia. I was remembering how back in the UK the tiny little robins would fluff themselves up against the cold. Their vivid red feathers stand out against the snow reminding me of home.

Later the painting was printed onto an acrylic block making this the perfect decoration for the Christmas season propped up on the mantelpiece above a roaring fire.

Sheila from hollyhillwreaths says:

Grenadine skiing Santa felt jacket and poinsettias. I loved this shade of red on the rustic Santa with his wooden skis. This rustic Christmas wreath along with the red plaid Christmas ribbon will provide a warm, cozy feel displayed in a family room above a fireplace.

Dana Martin from IllCallYouFromParis says:

Crocuses are often called the first sign of spring, but in fact they’re such early bloomers that they can pop up in the snow months before spring has actually arrived. I think of them as a Christmas flower in that they are a resilient symbol of hope even when the world is still in the grip of winter.

Welcome June New Team Members – Part Two

Contributor post by Dawn from DeeDeeDeesigns

Join us in welcoming new members that joined during June …. visit their Etsy shops, favourite some items and maybe even share some on your social media!

Hi guys! I joined the team a few weeks ago and am very excited about promoting the event and making it a huge success.

I create bright, vivid pet portraits that capture your pets personality. I also offer this unique item where your pets portrait is printed on a pillow. I also create lots of bright, fun animal home decor designs so do check out my shop.

I was born in London, England but hopped the pond 17 years ago to Baltimore, USA where I now live with my family and guinea pigs. Good luck to everyone on the team!

Hi, my name is Julia and I am from Birmingham, England. I’m new to teams so this is going to be a big learning curve for me and I hope I can keep up and keep track of everything I need to be doing. Feel free to kick me up the butt to get me back on track if I go astray or do something wrong.

I’ve had my shop a couple of years, slowly adding items to it. My main product are knitted or crocheted lace shawls but last year I added a range of crochet lace covered Christmas baubles as a lower-priced item to try to attract customers and I have recently started adding lace baby matinee jackets too, again to try to attract customers into my store whilst still staying with the theme of Lace.

Almost everything in my store is one-of-a-kind as I use a lot of vintage yarn, yarn from small indie yarn producers and hand spun yarn, yes I spin my own yarn too!

I’ve decided to show you this pure Shetland Wool shawl that I made some time ago now with yarn that I spun myself and it features over 5,000 beads, all individually placed over the stitches at the time of knitting, so that they can’t travel along the yarn and out of placement, using a tiny crochet hook and a lot of patience.

Hello, my name is Judy Tosh from Belton, MO. I am happy to be a part of this team. It is hard to believe that half of the year is over already!

My shop consists of repurposing items into unique home décor. Lately, I have been repurposing ceiling fan light shades and fan blades.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Katerina and I am the face behind OnceUponJewels. I create theatrical and romantic jewelry inspired in folktales and fairytales that I collect around the world. I believe that everyone has a little bit of magic inside so, that is why my moto is #spreadyourfairydust.

One of my favorite pieces from my shop is my illustrated fairy pair of earrings. It is my first jewel design and I am very attached to it. I designed it inspired in the Nordic atmosphere I am leaving in the last years. My Fairy on A Bottle is a solid silver earring, hand painted and hand carved and i think that she is joyful and sexy at the same time.

I hope you like it!

Sandra Huss from sandrahuss says

Hi I’m Sandra from Charleston, SC . My shop sells “Warrior Pets” I created this design four years ago primarily for children that have a CHD (Congenital heart defect) and require open heart surgery. I have also expanded the line for children that have other illnesses/syndromes such as down syndrome, epilepsy, cancer. I love to think that my warrior pets bring these children a little joy into their lives and something to cuddle up to when they are not feeling so good. Thanks for letting me join your team.

Olga Tanasiva from LOTpottery says

Hello. My name is Olga, I’m from the city of Dnipro, Ukraine. I have a small ceramic studio. Clay is a wonderful material for the embodiment of ideas. Some of my things I represent here in the store.
These are some of the beads that I made.

I’m Dana, an illustrator and watercolorist specializing in bright botanicals and vibrant nature scenes. Everyone needs some art in their life, so I strive to offer a little something in everyone’s price range, from stickers and painting tutorials to prints and mini originals.

This is one of my mini summer iris paintings. Find more of them in my shop!

Melody from OnSiletzBay says

Hi, I’m Melody living in the US, on the beautiful Oregon Coast. All of my life I have wanted to live by the ocean, and I feel so lucky that I am finally here and have been able to have my studio and create just steps from Siletz Bay. So my shop title reflects that, as do my choices of color and subject matter. I think this listing shows that.

I have been on Etsy as a sideline for many years with another shop, but am getting this one going as my main gig.

Hi everyone! I’m Elena from Belarus. My shop is knotandliving. This is my first Christmas in July. It is really nice to meet you all!

Our natural candles with crackling woodwick and beautiful cherry wood coaster are my favorite attribute for Christmas.

Hi I am Patricia Artist selling paintings. I am glad to be here and I sell paintings.

Hi everyone…I am rosiefreckles …..a fabric addict and particularly love making patchwork quilts from baby size up to massive wedding canopies or queen size bed quilts. Here is an example of what I sell both as ready made or on commission.

Hello, I’m Katrina from thepapercupboard.

I make Christmas crackers, decorations and books from Nepalese Lokta paper a handmade artisan paper indigenous to Nepal. I use this paper for it’s fibrous texture, sumptuous colours and beautiful patterns.

Take a look for yourself.

Hi! I’m Lauren from arizonadesignsco.

I make Word Templates, Planner Inserts and Stickers, and other things for bloggers. I started my shop as a sticker shop but found myself gravitating to wanting to help bloggers establish themselves.

I just found Christmas in July in the forums and I’m glad that I was able to jump in just in time.

Here is one of my Blogger Media Kits:

YOKO from WAYOKO says

Hi everyone! I’m Yoko from Wayoko. Actually this is second shop. I have another shop for jewelry (yokojewelry) and already a team member.

In this second shop, Wayoko, I’m selling kimono upcycle items, such as coin purse, cosmetic bag, key fobs and recent new items are eye pillows Also I’m selling jewelry for kimono as well. Such as obidome.

Chrystel Galea from TheMakersRealm says

Hi Everyone!
I make beeswax candles, ornaments and melts. This is my newest product, they are beeswax gift tags scented with essential oils.
These cute, natural ornaments make ideal gift tags adding a memorable and unique touch to gift wrapping. It’s an extra little present for your loved ones to enjoy.
WOW – what great new talented Teamies!! Happy Shopping!

#CIJPopUpMarket #2 Shop – Emma Kaufmann from StudioEmmaKaufmann

StudioEmmaKaufmann

1. What is the name of your shop and where do you look for inspiration?

The name of my shop is Studio Emma Kaufmann.

I must say I am constantly inspired by everything around me. I love to paint all sorts of animals so if I see an animal I like I paint him/her. I also have two guinea pigs at home who are supermodels and who I have painted many times.

2. How has your shop evolved over time?

I started my Etsy shop because it was a convenient and reliable shop front for me to sell my pet portrait commissions. The shop has since evolved to me doing colorful animal designs which are printed on bedding, cushions and home decor which will make your room pop.

3. What do you love most about your work?

Being able to create my own schedule. To be able to work in my pajamas and to be able to do what I love most in the world – to paint!

4. What motivating music do you listen to? Share your playlist that gets and keeps you going!        

I usually listen to music that’s very spacey and ambient or has a meditative rhythm.

Air – Pocket Symphony
Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
Kraftwerk – The Man-Machine
Massive Attack – Protection

5. What book are you reading right now and where is your favorite place to read?

At the moment I am reading the non-fiction book Built on Bones by archaeologist Brenna Hassett. She studies human skeletons to discover how people lived 15,000 years ago and why they chose to stay in cities even though it did not seem to be very good for their health. It is absolutely fascinating.

I love to sit outside and read in my garden. I have a little stream at the end of it which bubbles away over the pebbles and is very soothing.

The Twelve Days of Christmas – #CIJParty 2017

Contributor post by Dawn from DeeDeeDeesigns

We have a wide variety of Etsy sellers in our Christmas in July team, and this means we have a great range of handmade and vintage products to choose from for the 12 Days of Christmas.

I asked team members if they have an item in their shop that relates to the 12 days of Christmas? And here we go:

And here are the 12 days of Christmas!

Twelve Drummers Drumming

patontheback from patontheback says

I love Christmas in July because we’re expecting 110° plus, and I can go on a virtual holiday thinking about cool items outside my hot desert!
Twelve drummers drumming- I’ve always been a percussion instrument fan, and this fabric makes me think of not only the twelve days of Christmas, but a little drummer. Happy holidays!

Eleven Pipers Piping

How about these lovely vintage carolers singing the 12 Days of Christmas?

Ten Lords a Leaping


Nine Ladies Dancing

The ninth of Christmas – nine ladies dancing! These colourful dancing charms are great for jewellery design, card making, gift wrapping, bunting and a wide range of craft projects.

KATERINA ILIAKI from OnceUponJewelsCo says

Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit-Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.​ This necklace also symbolizes the joy of love and freedom. Dance is an expression and combination of all of these sentiments.

OnceUponJewelsCo

Susan-Sharon Passmore from MsPDesignsUSA says

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me– nine ladies dancing. Well, we actually have 13 ladies dancing the ballet on this fun nursery quilt, but who’s counting?

Eight Maids a Milking
Eight maids a milking – need to have some modesty and comfort in these slip shorts worn under their frocks while milking the cows… I love CIJ as it makes so much sense as an Australian Etsy seller to enjoy all the delicious Christmas foods while we are in our winter.. pudding, nom!

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says

Well, it’s a bit of a stretch, but here’s my number 8 in the night sky – if you look closely you can see the Milky Way!

Seven Swans a Swimming

This pretty swan has her baby next to her and a child. The cream and gold colors remind me of an elegant Christmas.

Six Geese a Laying


Five Golden Rings

KATERINA ILIAKI from OnceUponJewelsCo says

The five golden rings represents the great love of God in sending a Savior. It is a very powerful day for me as I adore Christmas and Christmas time. It is a unique opportunity to remind ourselves to love each other, to help and respect everything that has life in it.

Five golden rings. 5 glasses, each has with a gold ring at the top.

Four Calling Birds

Emma Kaufmann from StudioEmmaKaufmann says

I love watching cute little robins chattering outside my window and all excited for Christmas against a stunning snowing background. This artwork was done in acrylic inks and is now available as a print to complete a festive look.

I love celebrating Christmas in July…I live in Baltimore where summers are sweltering so having a Christmas in July pool party certainly helps beat the heat!

Three French Hens

I love this Christmas song. I have a wire basket hen to go with the song.
This hen is an egg picking  asket and can be used to display Christams ornaments, flowers, wooden eggs and the like.

Two Turtle Doves
One dove in each ear makes a pair of turtle doves
Two antique gold Raz Doves featured on a Christmas wreath.

and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Linda from LazyYVintage says
On the first day of Christmas My True Love Gave To Me….a partridge in a pear tree!
This is first in the 12 Days of Christmas series for Precious Moments. I love Christmas in July team and event. The team is a fun and motivating way to market our shops while checking out other members’ shops. I love the event as a way to up the ante in marketing during a usually slow period for vintage buying. Always helps in recognition and in sales!
Not exactly a partridge in a pear tree, but how about this “in style” galvanized bucket planter with a vintage inspired pear fruit label.

Carol Braden-Williams from SilverTrove says

This may be a stretch, but it kinda looks like a partridge.
Partridge same family as dove
