2013 Handmade Holiday Showcase Day 10 : Gift Guide By Color See What's Trending :-)

Tanoshii Kurisumasu Wo!!!

  Coming to Day 10 of our 2013 Handmade Holiday Showcase! :-)

  Today, we present to your our Gift Guide By Color Collection curated by our lovely leader, VenetianMemories !


This falls’ color trend by Pantone are pretty nifty!

I love the blues and greens, the pink and grays!

There are colors for every taste and age.

First I found a pair of very interesting earrings by DistinguishedDesigns :


They are Mykonos (blue) and Emerald, they are beautiful; they would appeal to any lady who loves colors, especially if paired with the wonderful pendant by WonderfulKanzashi, that seems to have been created to go along with the above earrings.


For a young girlfriend or relative, who loves to dress up in skinny body-wrapping little cute garments, this dress in Vivacious (pink) created by New Style Nataly. Super uplifting if you want to feel at the center of attention!


For the little people in your life, I propose a wonderful alphabet animal print by ChildsTouch  in the shades of Linden Green and Deep Lichen Green. It’s a fun picture to hang on a wall with a vintage flavor to it that brings back memories of times long gone :


If you prefer a wall hanging in more earthy tones, there is a wonderful owl collage by The333Alliance:


Also for children and the young at heart, I found another owl created by The Sherbet Patch. This one is so cute I almost cannot resist it! It is in a color called Turbulence (gray). True to its name this little pirate owl cushion is ready to be your mate on any adventure you want to go:


If you are invited somewhere for the holidays and want to bring a hostess gift, then how about this sassy half apron in Carafe (brown) Linden Green by DaisyDotsDesign she’ll probably would appreciate it.


If instead you want to beautify your own kitchen, then go check out this amazing set of wooden nesting bowls in Koi (orange) by WindAndWillowHome :


Aunt Rita will certainly appreciate the thought , if I you buy this Koi, Mykonos and Linden vintage style handbag by Cosetas for her! It almost looks like May Poppins’ bag, with lots of space but a little more life to it!


For a modern grandma who is not afraid to be different, I suggest you check out these super long super soft gloves in the trend colors of Samba (red) and Turbulence, handknitted by Underbed. She’ll be warm and fashionable at the same time!


For old grandpa who has everything and just wants to sit comfortably in the living-room with the cat on the side, a newspaper on the lap and a mug of hot tea in the hands, try this apple pure raw honey tea produced by HoneyTeaThyme. You can’t go wrong!


And finally, for your co-worker who is always complaining about the drying effects of winter heating, I propose a sweet-smelling Lavender Geranium shea butter by AstridaNaturals. This gift is useful and in trend, carrying the Acai (deep purple) color from the Pantone collection :

Hello, I am an Italian from Venice, but my husband's military job assignment brought me to the US to live. I teach full time for a visual and performing arts high school. I have lots of talented students. 

My talent is jewelry making. I love making jewelry. In particular I like to use authentic Murano glass that I buy from my master beadmakers every summer when I go home to visit my folks. Lately I have been experimenting with semiprecious gemstones and wire. It's fun. I have been creating my pieces for about ten years and have placed many of them in good homes all over the world.
