Title: Christmas is coming!
Post by: MakinTheBest on August 20, 2011, 07:11:25 PM
Ok, I am sitting here in the air conditioning painting Christmas ornaments and letting my mind wander.  We are still new, the shop I mean, but I really want to know if anyone has any ideas of promotion that we can do for the holidays.  We will definitely step up our regular promotions by adding what great gifts we have on our shop, but I am looking for ideas from you!

A small contribution to the topic, Chanukah pretty much coincides with Christmas this year, Dec. 20 - 28th.

Haff, I have tried the head bury thing and the holidays came anyways so I guess we just have to deal with it.
Lisa, thanks for the reminder about Chanuka.

I will have to put on my thinking hat for this one!  Maybe come up with donated items to giveaway for Christmas time?

I'm kind of glad Chanukah is later this year.  The gifts I want to do for my nephew for Chanukah & his birthday (12/22) are pretty time-intensive!

Know the feeling.  I always make my family gifts and this year I picked this http://handmadeartistsshop.com/product-details/Patterns/Tutorials%20&%20Kits%20/Beading/Twinkle%20Twinkle%20Little%20Star%20eTutorial/?pid=20110808215116a0b92 (http://handmadeartistsshop.com/product-details/Patterns/Tutorials%20&%20Kits%20/Beading/Twinkle%20Twinkle%20Little%20Star%20eTutorial/?pid=20110808215116a0b92) which is going to be a bit time intensive

Almost finished with one...the ornament you smart ass, not the tutorial!...and will post pics.  I'm really pretty happy how it come out.  The rest should go faster now that I understand how it goes together better.  I have to say, though, her tutorial is really well written!

Sorry. :-\ I was in one of those moods. It's this sense of humor that gets me in trouble down here sometimes.

Yes, but those of us up here in Jersey understand that sense of humor.  :D

Hi Guys :)

Seeing as this is the "Christmas thread" for discussion I thought maybe I could mention that I'm running a really big Christmas offer in my Etsy shop between now and the 25th Christmas!

www.etsy.com/shop/MissyKsCreations

For every purchase you make you will get 75% off a pair of earrings... perfect for presents, stocking fillers, or even just to treat yourself ;) It's all handmade by me and I hope you like what you see!

By the way.. just to rub it in a lil - I'm totally already organized with all my Christmas presents ;) lol !!

Thanks and I hope you are all well :)

Kelly-Anne  :D
