Christmas is Coming...

It's getting near to that time of year again, I love Autumn and look forward to Halloween as it means Christmas is next! I have been getting into it a little earlier than is sane and have cracked these beauties out...

Apple and Cinnamon Candles:




And these give me the background smell of christmas for a little inspiration for some christmas makes:
A little felt beaded Christmas Tree:

Some wire beaded snowflakes in Christmas colours, I think I will hang these on fine ribbons and hang about the house, I have a few more to make:

Since attending the Craft Fair I have been 'into' my beads again and have made some big blingy rings from some chinese doughnut crystals, I love these beads:

I had left over beads and made some earrings to match.I quite like the look of the red velvet and opal stones and they also remind me of Christmas, I think I might keep these for myself and I have just started a matching bracelet in the same colours.

Have you got the Christmas bug yet or is it far too early, and am I insane?

Its never too early Kandi, I got some "glistening snow" scented candles but Hubby goes mad saying they smell funny and are dangerous. I love em tho. I love your jewellery too the doughnut crystals are very popular. I was looking in M&S and they had loads of crystal jewellery the sparkle was so pretty. Dx

Oh I love those rings, so pretty.
I must admit I have started my Christmas shopping but I have to really as my shop gets so busy in the few weeks before Christmas I don't have a moment to stand still!
I love this run up as it is Halloween, then my birthday in November, then our wedding anniversary on Christmas Eve & Christmas!!! The weeks seem to fly by from now until Christmas for me.
Have a fun weekend

A bit too early for me I am afraid but I do love all your makes. I especially love the sparkly rings, I bought on very similar in Spain this year and love the way it sparkles!

Alex said...

I'm liking the look of that candle! Where's it from?

I've completely got the Christmas bug. I hate leaving it all till the last minute - I like to be well organised.
