The Elves Would Like Me to Announce~ 2011 Holiday Shipping Schedule

As you may know, the elves we hang out with are not the same busy little creatures that populate Santa's workshop. My elven friends have lives of their own to attend to -leaving Ian & I to produce all the jewelry from our shop pretty much single handed. Here are the holiday deadlines for you to be aware of if you would like your items in time for Christmas:

SPECIAL HOLIDAY SHIPPING SCHEDULE: For delivery by Christmas, order deadlines are as follows:
International & Military mail: Thurs Dec 8th
USA: Mon Dec 19th
    All orders placed before these dates will be shipped on or before the respective USPS Christmas shipping deadlines (Dec 9th, international,. Dec 20th US first class). From there it is out of my control, but so far USPS has been pretty good to us every year;)

    Don't forget our HOLIDAY SALE: November 28th through December 31,2011 you will receive a free Thyme2dream Gift Certificate with any purchase of US $25.00 or more~the more you buy, the more you get. Visit Thyme2dream ArtFire for all the details;)

    Shall we have Merry Tuneful Tuesdays Too?

    Why yes, I do love Christmas, how did you guess? Aside from all of the sparklie magic of the lights and snow and Santa, I also love Christmas music! Ive decided to fill my treehouse (aka my studio;) with lots of it this year so have been downloading like crazy from iTunes. Loreena McKennit's A Midwinter Night's Dream is so beautiful- I was delighted to find this new to me Christmas carol that she set to the tune of Star of the County Down - one of my favorite Irish tunes!

    Over all I think A Midwinter Night's Dream is one of my favorite Holiday CDs- often a Christmas album has a few good songs and a lot of duds, but I like every song on this one! If you would like your own copy, you can click on the photo below:)

    Cyber Monday, Holiday Sales & Merry Giveaways
