I think this was one of the fastest summers I have ever had. I feel like I blinked and it was time to go to back to school! And we all know this means fall isn’t far away. I enjoy fall, you get to see the leaves change color, the days are not as hot, and the holidays aren’t far away! It is also a time when I get to introduce some of the fun projects I have been working on over the summer. I spent time working with my embroidery and with my stamped ornament designs. Originally when I first started the stamped jewelry I was all over the place with ideas on what I wanted to make and what I wanted to offer for sale. It was a bit overwhelming. Some time has passed and I have decided I want to concentrate on certain areas of the stamped jewelry and ornaments. Some of the original ornaments I made were cute at the time but I am getting better with my skill of stamping and have decided I want to be more unique with my designs so I am taking some of those ornaments and I am adding to the original designs and I am pleased with the results so far. I also spent time over the past several weeks going through all of my jewelry supplies and decided on what I want to continue to use and what I would like to pass onto someone else to appreciate/use. I didn’t realize I have accumulated so much stuff! This clean out project has grown from what I thought would be just a few days to several weeks, and I am still not done! Once I got started I realized I needed to get into the nitty gritty of my inventory and determine what I want to focus on making going forward. This has been a really long process but I am very pleased with the results so far. I hope you visit the Sanders’ Crafts online shop and the Etsy shop this holiday season to check out the new items that will be available for purchase. I included a picture with the new holiday coasters that are available along with 2 of the updated stamped ornaments! Happy Back to School everyone!!!
