We had our fist snow accumulation a couple of days ago. I was thinking yesterday about how quickly these past few months have passed. It feels like Renegade was just a couple of weeks ago, and now I'm preparing for the Renegade Holiday Show this weekend.
I'll be removing all of my inventory from the shop on Saturday morning and bringing it all with me. If you've been eyeing something, don't wait to scoop it up! There's no guarantee that it'll return when I restock the shop on Sunday night.
If you can't buy handmade for everyone on your list this year, there's still a way to shop that'll make you feel good about your experience.
The Lupus Research Institute has partnered with over a hundred online retailers to raise money for this very worthy cause year-round. iTunes, Netflix and Amazon are on the list as well as department and specialty stores. You can even shop for flowers, office supplies, diapers and pet food!
By using their portal at ShopForLupus.org you'll ensure that a percentage of your purchase will benefit lupus research. Bookmark it and use it often!

The little beauties you see above have been transformed into wearable works of art. Some will go in the shop and others to the DIY Trunkshow.
I also have a ton of new designs just waiting to be photographed! Some of them are pieces that I sold out of quickly and repeatedly this summer so they never made it to my Etsy shop, including brooches. I have a few different styles and colors, and I'm hoping to have them in the shop by the end of the week. I started out last July with the tried-and-true black medallion (below) and liked it so much that I made more. I'm planning a Wednesday shop update (if I'm happy with the photos).
