Jingle Balls is upon us
Now, I’m sure that if you have any inkling of who I am you’ll know that I’m not the religious type, I’m not one for celebrating religious holidays, but December to me is a good excuse to hanker down at home (not that we’ve needed an excuse to do that in 2020!) and get the sparkly decorations out of their warmer weather hibernation. I love the idea of an alternative Xmas, I don’t want the option of scoffing to much food, watching crappy telly, and giving gifts to my favourite people, to lay in the domain of religion. So in my house, it very much doesn’t, though I do like to do a platter of Baby Cheeses!
As a creative type it’s probably my best time for sales too and I love being a stall holder at markets at this time of year, there’s a real buzz around them, the anticipation of choosing the perfect gift for someone you love. This COVID-19 pandemic has hit makers hard this year, and it’s going to be especially tough for some of us who rely on festive sales. I know I’ve not stopped making things, and I’m sure that’s the case for most makers.
Handmade Xmas Decorations
I’ve got lots of handmade xmas decorations all ready to find new homes now, and I’ve got lots of new naughty ceramic ones in various stages of the making process too. Rather than adding them onto my online Etsy shop and having to increase prices to counteract the fees there, I’ve decided to sell the ones that are available now via my Facebook page, so they are at stupidly low prices. They’re all included in a ‘Xmas 2020’ photo album that is pinned to the top of that page, so it’s very easy to find, just click here. Prices are starting from just £1 and there’s crazy deals on bulk buys of designs too.
You can contact me directly if you want to give any of them a home, either to brighten up your own home with the nice ones, make an alternative Xmas statement with the naughty ones, or give them as gifts.
If you’re on the hunt for gifts, I’ve got lots of my work in my Etsy shop, just click here and go have a browse through my paintings, prints, ceramics, mosaics and craftwork, prices start there from just £10 including free UK postage!
Commission Your Own Gifts
If you would like a commission of a Sweary Landscape (it doesn’t have to be Sweary) then please contact me directly to guarantee a truly unique and bespoke gift.
I’d love to do a happy dance!
I’m relying on my lovely supporters to consider buying handmade things for this festive season, to shop local and shop small businesses, rather than lining the already bulging pockets of the big corporates. By buying direct from an artist or crafter you are getting something unique, something made with a passion, and you’ll be encouraging a whole raft of people to do happy dances.
