Changing seasons everywhere!

Seasons are changing outdoors, but wandering around my daughter's basement craft room makes it obvious that they are changing with the products she creates for her online Etsy store as well!

Products being boxed for shipping...

Handmade bars of soap curing. The soap is much too pretty to use, but she keeps assuring me that I need to use it, as there is always more being made!

And then you turn around and it is Christmas! Yule logs and candles and preparations to make wreaths!

The old tin candle mold has been in the family for generations and I passed it along to be used again.

Yes the seasons are changing 🙂 Love the candle mold and also the candles in the birch tree sections. We were just discussing wreaths. We bought one last year and kept the frame thinking we would make our own this year. But we need to get going on that if we are going to make it happen.

I am glad Alli loves creating such things! I've never been good at crafts.
That old candle mold was sitting here collecting dust. The ancestors would be pleased to see it being used!

I love all the seasonal things and holidays galore all mixing together now. You definitely have to start early if you are making things to sell.

My spirit is already getting caught up in the anticipated fun.

She got an order already a month ago for a yule log! Some people think far ahead. I'm only now beginning to think about turkey and cranberries!

That reminds me of what my mother said last week. Although she loves Christmas too, she said she just needed to get past Thanksgiving first. Thinking ahead and making a plan and trying to think on them both was too much.

I always get the Christmas spirit too early, but it is fun to have something to look forward too. I love our family Thanksgiving as well, but we don't have other traditions really besides that Thanksgiving day feast. Food galore will be there and I will do my part, but to me that doesn't take a lot of early planning or gathering unless your part has an ingredient that might not be available at the last minute. I take the day off before Thanksgiving day, so I have plenty of time to do my thing then and lots of times our gathering is on Thanksgiving evening, so I also have the first half of the day if I still need more time.

Christmas on the other hand has multiple events and presents AND food.... so lots more planning and forethought needed. I like it though, so it doesn't feel like a chore to me. What else do I have to do ?!

It seemed to me that this was preparation for Christmas sales.

did the daughter do all this with her own hands?

The candles and soaps are handmade, but special molds are used. The logs are from Melinda's backyard woods, and all the special red faux berries are from the craft store. As are the beads and whatnot. :)

It's very nice to read this.
I see that birch was used in one fake.

I love wooden spoons. They are made of linden.
Are you doing this?

The birch is real birch wood, but sometimes It's real dried plants and sometimes it's fake plants that go with it --or both at the same time! 🙂

I've never made wooden spoons! I wonder if it is difficult to do... I think making a beautiful wooden spoon must take a lot of skill. ♥️

Wow, I love candles! Your daughter is an artist. 🤩

Omg, the old mould is as good as new. The family has managed to preserve it. It is a jewel worthy of a museum.

Seasons are always changing, we are living in a merry-go-round 🤣. I don’t like cold weather. If I could, I would hibernate like bears til spring, LOL. But yes, I know, it is necessary for the cold to exist in order to enjoy the heat.
