Tis the Season, Part 2

Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? We're here to help.

Sparkles-a-lot 2 has a fall inspired handmade beaded chain necklace:

Redwood Brown Sari Silk Tassel


Peppermint Candy Beaded Earrings

What is so special about this ornament is that a piece of a vintage sweater was given to me to use in a creation from a 92 year old neighbor of mine. She was a seamstress for many years and is trying to find places for her items to go and be used instead of just being thrown away. She came from a era where you did not just throw away items... once a item was done being used in its original state you would reuse it in something else. She only had a small piece of the sweater left so this ornament is very limited. I am making one for her family and one for our family the rest will be for sale. Her piece of sweater will go on to bring many joy as they hang these unique and special snowmen on their trees. This piece of sweater was given to me in the summer of 2015... A sad update is that in the summer of 2016 my neighbor passed away... after she passed away her grandchildren came to me and said they knew I sewed and that she had given me some items. They let me go in her sewing room and take what I could use. I got so many buttons... many of these buttons she cut off of cloths to reuse once she was done with the clothes. So now 2 of these buttons will be added to each snowman. Her little piece of sweater will live on in many homes and in your wonderful Christmas celebrations :)

And finally, from (me) Zizi Rho Designs:
Because I like to have little knits everywhere, I knew I had to knit some ornaments for the tree. I hope you enjoy this little beaded bauble...

Antique crazy quilt top, made in the late 1800s. This quilt top has a lot of damage but it would look spectacular wrapped around your Christmas tree in lieu of a traditional tree skirt!

If you have an executive in your life who complains about some of those board meeting that get out of hand with everyone talking at the same time. Talking over one another causing a one hour meeting to lag on for two hours or more.... 
I have the very thing for you to gift them!  
A Native American Talking stick was traditionally made for the Chief or Medicine Man who leads a circle to use to keep only one person talking at a time. No one but the person holding this Sacred meeting tool is allowed to speak until they have spoken their truth! I use them when I am doing Group Therapy and have no problem with cross talk now.  
This is a great Christmas gift for the executive who is hard to buy for!!!
