From my new Cafe Press art account, this beautiful Lion keepsake box. The art was done by me, with gel pens. I love using different types of media. I am used to acrylics, but I really enjoy the control, odor free, and mess free capabilities with gel pens. This box is shown in black, but is also available in Mahogany. Great gift idea for a man, anyone with a birthday in August, or just an animal lover. Great for graduation, weddings, Christmas, etc. Click here to visit the website and check out this item. This art work is available on 119 other items, so be sure to check them all out.

This is a great office party gift idea, or to bring to an evening party invite. This is a blue glass wine bottle. It is sealed, and never used. You can put wine in it, candy, or just about anything else that will fit. I hand etched on the snow flakes, all around the bottle, and the saying Tis the Season. Great for New Years too, and now on sale! Until the end of July this is priced at $25.90. Click here to visit my Etsy store to purchase, or check out my other sale items for Christmas in July.

I am trying hard to get all 14 Christmas in July sale items up to this blog. This is item #2. This is a finished counted cross stitch, done by me back in t he 9o's when I worked night shift. Then I had it sewn onto the most beautiful fabric and the trim is all holly berries. This has never been displayed, nor washed. I put it in a ziploc bag and it has been stored in a trunk ever since completion. I completely forgot about it until recently when I was going through old bins that hadn't been gone through in years. It is in perfect condition, may need a washing, on gentle and I would recommend in one of those protective laundry bags, lie flat to dry. Hours and hours of work goes into a counted cross stitch piece. I wish I could see well enough to still do it, I love it so much. This is not cheap, and would be for a collector most likely. Check it out in my Etsy shop.

So, if you were following along, I didn't do so great blogging in June. My life has been crazy since April, and I sure am hoping by the end of July it will slow down a little, and be more normal. For the month of July, I am running a Christmas in July sale. There are 14 items marked down, and they center around Christmas, or cold weather. For example, this lovely baby blanket, handmade crochet with baby soft yarn in variegated blues and greens. A lot of time goes into a crochet project, and often people don't realize how much love is put into a crocheted item. Crocheted items last for years, are super warm, even the lighter yarns, and can be handed down from generation to generation. Visit my Etsy store to see this beautiful baby blanket, and maybe purchase too. I can't make the link thing work on my Nextbook, so go to Etsy and search Missy69, and you will find my shop. I will fix the link asap.
