Hello there lovely Buttoneers! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! It feels like just last week I was on ‘An Autumn Adventure’ over here (I literally was! ;)) and wham! Just like that, we are into Winter and thinking about Christmas. Blimey!

I thought I would create a little post about all things Winter and Christmas with a cheeky nod towards the Eliston Button Etsy Shop as ideas for your handmade Christmas gifts and, a sneaky hat-tilt towards making and soaking up the holiday cheer with my festive tutorials!

[Shhhh! Buttoneer Insider Information Enclosed: For any order made in the Eliston Button Etsy Shop before 25th December, I will send you a free handmade mystery gift AND 15% off your next order!! – Am I good to you or what!? Details at the end of this post! Shhhh!]

*cough* *cough* So, Here is a fun little round up of just some of the handmade loveliness in my shop…

You can get swept away with the ‘Oo La La’ of French charm with my Embroidery Hoop Wall Art…Take a walk along a driftwood covered beach with golden sand between your toes in my Fabric Collages…Add a touch of whimsy to your hair with my Embroidered Felt and French Knitted Hair Accessories…or even pretty up your ears with my Embroidered Felt Petal Earrings

I am just in love with their colourful little smiles and snazzy little stitches! They make my heart swoon and I (almost!) don’t want to part with them, so much so that I am confident enough to say you will feel the same if you buy one for someone else!

My Illustrated Quote Prints are my most popular seller at the moment and to be honest are one of my favourite things to make too!

Did you know that my fabric ‘Beach Huts’ collage was made into an 8×10 print? I also have two of my ‘Sky and Sea’ Painted Canvases left and the last few packs of my Hand-stamped Street Scene Cards and envelopes.

You can also get into the Christmas spirit with some of my past Christmas themed tutorials! Remember last year’s Fabric Scrap Christmas Garland? I love mine and cannot wait to grab it out of the Christmas box and hang it in my window! It was sure to make my smile, even on the greyest of winter days!

So, there you go! An Eliston Button Etsy Shop handmade round-up! I have many more items in the shop including Woven Wall Hangings, Pom Pom Garlands, Picture Bead Mug Coasters and much more so grab a cup of tea and have a browse around. 

Also, If you want a sneak peek into how a beautifully package my items for you (so you don’t have to!) you can head over to last year’s Christmas post – Warning, it is sooo pretty! 

While I am on the Christmas gift train over here, I wanted to give you the heads up to my last recommended Christmas postage dates. If you order on or after these dates, I cannot guarantee that your items will arrive before Christmas. That said, I will not be closing the Eliston Button Etsy Shop over the holiday period, so feel free to spend your Christmas pennies and I will post the handmade goodness out to you as long as the Post Office is open!

I had far too much fun illustrating that post box! 🙂 I am off to make some festive handmade goodness and drink a lot of hot chocolate, eat a lot of mince pies and soak up the lights and the traditions and all of the seasonal magic. I will still be blogging for a little while longer though so keep your eyes peeled!

Thanks for ploughing through my ramblings – it’s always a tough post to write (no one likes to talk about themselves!) but being a little creative business, it is vital to keep myself out there and to keep you lovely Buttoneers up-to-date with what is going on in my little creative world! Especially when it is that sometimes stressful time where you have no idea what to buy people! 

What is your favourite thing in my Shop? Will you be trying any of my festive tutorials? Do you have any Christmas craft traditions in your home? I would love to hear all about it! 

Don’t forget my exclusive-to-blog-readers promotion of a free mystery handmade gift and 15%off your next order with all orders made before 25th December! Just quote ‘Eliston Button Blog’ in the Notes section of your Etsy Order for it to take effect! Hooray!
