Holiday Ideas

I’ve got so many different Holiday ideas for my fiber shop swimming around in my head and no time to do them and it’s killing me! Okay, I’m making that up, I have plenty of time to do them, just not before my next show which is… uhh… two days from now! I had HUGE plans of sticking just to jewelry for Saturday’s show but we all know how HUGE plans go. Yeah, they go right out the window.

Oh well, I’ll stick to the jewelry, bring some of my fall/holiday yarns and leave it at that. I still have the two Farmer’s Market Holiday Markets (too many markets?) to prepare for and I can unroll some of my ideas there. AND there is always next year. Let’s not forget that.

I’m quite excited about the show on Saturday. I’ve been churning out so much jewelry for the past few weeks and some of my new items sold at least weeks show so I just know this weekend will be great. I’ve been using a lot of pearl and jewel tones in my new pieces (perfect for the Holidays) and even gold which is not something I’ve done before. I’m please with how they look for this time of year and am itching to get pictures of the items so I can get them up on Etsy in time for some Holiday shopping.

I don’t know where this sudden burst of jewelry making energy has come from lately, but I’m not going to complain. I really didn’t want to make jewelry the entire summer and was worried going into the fall still not wanting to. Funny how that changes in anticipation of Christmas.

Now, back to my fibery ideas I started this post out with. I want to do more art yarns than I am. Just small bits of yarn perfect to just enjoy in a glass bowl or to add to a project for some pizazz. The couple of Ugly Yarns that I did for Halloween (art yarns gone bad) garnered so much interest and I even sold some. It would be crazy not to do more but not call the Ugly Yarns. Ugly Yarns don’t sound too Christmassy… I’d come up with something else. Perhaps, “Someone Spiked the Punch” yarns or another cheeky phrase. I’m sure it will come to me at some point.

I also want to put together some fiber ornament kits. Basically it would be a way for someone who likes to craft, but doesn’t knit or crochet, to use my yarn for other “non-tradition” projects. And no, don’t ask what I have in mind because I haven’t figured it out, but I will… oh, I will!

I have some other ideas too, but I’m having trouble explaining them in writing. If I get to them this year, I’ll be sure to post the ideas and pictures to share with all of you.

So, what have you got planned for the Holiday crafting season? Making gifts? Any seasonal items going up in your online shops if you have them? I’d love to hear from you. Sharing ideas and projects really helps get all of our creative juices flowing.

    Perhaps "Cornucopia" yarn or "Recycled Ornament" yarn or "Ornamental" yarn or "Look what the Reindeer Left Behind" yarn or "Fruitcake" yarn…I just thought I'd have fun with potential names or even help inspire another fun one!

    Fruitcake is good! What about Lumps of Coal? :)I have a lot o ideas too… and have a hard time figuring out what to narrow in on. Help!

    Fruitcake – like that.And "Look what the reindeer left behind" is cracking me up – I might just have to spin a yarn that has that name to include in my "Fruitcake" yarns 🙂 Funny… and gross… but funnier than gross.Thanks you two!
