Countdown to Christmas - Week 9

Christmas is coming! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? We, the handmade community have many beautiful gift ideas to offer. Shop handmade and support the small business.

Julie and Blu host weekly Countdown to Christmas promotion and I tell you, I have so much fun with it. The Countdown to Christmas - Week 9  has been completed with 133 linked items! The more the merrier, yay!

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.

Check out my Countdown to Christmas Pinterest Board for more wonderful artworks.

This week I'm sharing 3 items from each of my shops.
