Gifts for Wine Lovers

Yay, I got a post in besides Make it Monday! Right now, in my Etsy shop, I have 10 different items that can be gifts for wine lovers. One is shown below, and etched glass red wine bottle with strawberries on it. Some of my wine bottles are painted, some are etched glass, and there are some vintage silver wine goblets too. The wine bottles are new, and unopened,unless otherwise stated. You could put candy, soap, or other things in these wine bottles, but of course you could put wine in them too! Be sure to read listings carefully, and ask any questions. All of my items are shipped with insurance, no matter the price, or fragility. Visit my Etsy shop now.

Make It Monday: Baby Boy Crochet Blanket, Paw Print Etched Glass and A Free Gift Promo

I did not realize I forgot to post my Make it Monday for last week. The only item I got done so far this week, is the free gift with promo angel lollipop holder. It is the very first image, and from now until New Years, 2018, this is a Free Gift with all purchases in my Etsy shop. See my Etsy shop for details. It does say 20 cents, I had to put a price on it, but it is not for purchase, just for me to advertise it. Ask me about it if you want.

 I finished the blue variegated baby blanket last week. I love this stitch, looks like stepping stones to me. It is listed in my Etsy shop. 

 I also made up an etched glass dog paw print on a cabochon, for Fairy or Pet Gardens. So cute, sold in lots of 5. Now with the days being shorter, I have to figure out a time to do my glass etching. I have to be outside, and I homeschool during the day. Could be interesting. I might have to change my craft day from Make it Monday, to Make it Saturday.

 I just started a new crochet wrap, and I love this pattern. I can't wait to finish it. It will be available for purchase as soon as it is done. Don't forget to check out my current jewelry sale, in my Etsy shop. All jewelry items, except those already on mark down for clearance, are 15% off, plus you get the free gift with purchase. This current sale ends on the 16th, so hurry and get shopping. I will then be running a week long Black Friday sale, and am considering a featured item of the week, maybe after the holidays are over. Start shopping now, and beat the rush, plus most of my jewelry pieces are one only, unique pieces.

Make it Monday: Black Spinel Ring

I am trying to buy a new ring setting, each month, or bracelet, pendant, etc. I like rings though, so that is what I usually pick. This is not the only item I completed this week. There is a pair of Peridot earrings, some new etched glass wine bottles, and finishing up a crochet baby blanket. All of these items, can be seen in my Etsy shop. I am still working hard to try and do more than one post a week. It isn't that I don't have anything to say, lol.

 The ring below, brand new in my Etsy shop, is a sterling silver, size 6 fancy rope design ring, with a 6mm round, Black Spinel gemstone. Now I say Black Spinel because that is the most likely answer. However, it could be a black sapphire, or even a black diamond. Most of my gemstones were bought in large parcels, of genuine gemstones, and unidentified. I used to test them, but now I simply don't have the time to do so. This is a lovely ring, and would make a great gift. My Etsy shop, has two promotions running right now. The first, which will expire on Halloween, is for free shipping for all items marked Halloween, USA buyers only. The second is a Pre Thanksgiving sale, and it has all jewelry items, except clearance items, and new items, marked down 15%. Why not start your Christmas shopping early?

Make It Monday: Etched Glass Thanksgiving Dinner Plates, and Snowflake Wine Bottle

It was a beautiful, cool, day today, in FL, finally! It gave me time to finish up some projects I started a few weeks ago. The first item, will be a pre-order item in my Etsy shop. The plate shown, has a tiny mistake, so is just for pics. I have two more plates to etch the image into the plate. That is why it is a pre-order. First person to order will get them both, unless I can get more of the glass dinner plates, then I can do more pre-orders. Perfect for Thanksgiving for 2, or as a serving plate. The pilgrims are so adorable. I did a large glass jar with this same image, that is already available in my shop.

 The second item would make a great Christmas gift. It is a blue wine bottle, cork and seal still in place. I etched on the words Tis the Season, with snowflakes etched into the glass all around the bottle. You could open it and put wine in it, if you are a wine maker that would be fabulous. Or give as is, and let the receiver choose what to do with it. New baby blanket in the works, and I have at least 2 holiday wreaths I want to get done. Not sure I will make it by Christmas, lol. It is coming so fast now. This time of year I do more glass etching, and wood working, rather than jewelry and painting items.
