Countdown to Christmas - Week 5

Julie & Blu host the weekly Countdown to Christmas promotion. The Countdown to Christmas - Week 5  has been completed with 106 items link! This is a great way of promoting each other if everyone does their part, which I truly hope.

All handmade shops owners are invited to join.  
There is a 3 item limit for each shop or studio. Multiple shops may post three for each. Keep in mind that it's G-rated. Posting starts from Friday to midnight Sunday, which should provide a lot of time to add items. Participate as many weeks as you like.

Here are my 3 shared items:

Holy Communion, Christening or Baptism Cross Centerpiece Party

Cute Owl Cupcake Toppers for Birthday or Baby Shower Party


Woodland Stickers for Birthday or Baby Shower Party Label

There is ONE RULE - You must promote the collection as soon as the posting closes. It is required to promote each item to one social network, preferably Pinterest or Wanelo where we can see the item. Twitter and Facebook are fine, they just do not show the item.

I have a Countdown to Christmas Pinterest Board for this and tweet and retweet. Working together as a team and promote each other bring positive impact for us with an ultimate goal of making sales. 

There are so many beautiful handmade items and it's quite hard to select just a few, so what I do is to come up with a theme and this week I'd like to highlight anything BLACK from the collection.
