Getting Ready for the Winter/Holidays at Eclectica By Jan

Greetings, All ~ The crisp fall weather is showing us the best of October. I have enjoyed being outside on some of our sunnier days - and Luvlee the cat likes to curl up by the stove on these cooler nights:

The cooler nights remind us that winter, and the holiday season, are around the corner. Normally I wouldn't be thinking of such things right now, but my participation in Etsy.com has changed all of that. It's time for all good artisans and crafters to be working on holiday and winter collections! So let me tempt you with some advance pictures of Eclectica By Jan's winter works in progress:

Here we have some warm winter scarves to keep the chills away. There's nothing like a colorful, hand-made scarf to brighten up the gray days of winter. And they're practical, too - easy care, soft and comfortable - these scarves will make great gifts!

Speaking of gifts, that makes us think of the Yuletide season. Who do you know who needs to get fired up with the Christmas spirit? I'm making some items to help with that project:

These pictures show my soon-to-be-available, one of a kind, holiday afghan! The colors alone will get you into the Christmas spirit faster than Scrooge can say, "Bah, humbug!" The scarves, afghan, and other goodies will soon be coming to my Eclectica By Jan etsy shop. In the meantime, you can follow the link and see my many giftable items for sale. Prices and shipping charges have been reduced in most cases. Why not get started early on your holiday shopping?

One last helpful hint before I sign off ~ I've been looking for an easy way to manage the endless flow of catalogs that land in my mailbox every day. Now I've found it, and if you , too, want to reduce your mailbox clutter and save some trips to the recycling drop-off, go to this site: CatalogChoice.org. It's free and super-easy to use. I signed up and in minutes and I had knocked my name off the mailing lists of half a dozen catalogs. Sure beats cutting out those silly labels and mailing them back to the company - plus I've saved over $2.00 on postage!

Until next time, dear readers ~ enjoy the beauty of autumn; stay warm; and above all be sure to get out and vote! Jan B
