Ho! Ho! Ho! Holiday Wishes 2015 to All! :D

About Me
Greetings! I'm Miss M. Turner. I'm 38 and I live in Florida with my guy and our three cats. I've been in this community for longer than I can remember. LOL I look forward to it every year and enjoy both sending and receiving some holiday cheer!

1. To have a good season in my shop PhoenixFire Designs Sales have been slow all year and unfortunately, I've been struggling to keep my head above water this year. I make beautiful pieces by hand and with love, including my world-famous Tree of Life pendants. I also gladly customize and personalize!

Even just spreading the word is helpful! Posting my link or "Like" my facebook page or follow me instagram is greatly appreciated. Share, tweet, post, pin on your journal, blog, tumblr, instagram, pinterest, facebook, twitter - anything! The more people know about it, the more I have a chance of getting buyers. Please help support handmade this holiday!

2. Jewelry/Bead Supplies!
I always need jewelry supplies! Swarovski crystals, gemstone chip strands, faceted rondelles, large hole beads, lampwork beads, silk bracelet ribbon, findings (earring hooks, headpins, clasps, etc.) Just no plastic/pony beads please as I can't use them.

3. Happy Mail Surprises
I rarely get mail these days. So I would love some fun, interesting or amusing mail. Postcards, letters, photos, some little trinket, something you made, art, pretty rock or crystal you found, a secret, a book, a card, something with owls, something Disney, something Harry Potter, something silly, something whimsical etc. Just some kind of surprise, happy mail or little "thinking of you" pick me up type letter or parcel. Really this is just an open call for any and all positivity in the form of mail. Sender's choice! :)

4. Anything from my amazon wishlist.
I don't mind gently used items. I'm a big believer that many things in life can be enjoyed by more than one person and shared. (And if you already own something on the list and want to pass it on, that's awesome too!)

5. Anything Back to the Future
I LOVE Back to the Future. Like, seriously, I know the first movie by heart. It's my ringtone on my cell. And I have like 6 versions of the DVD/Blu-Ray because every time it comes out, I buy it again. LOL So, anything about, or from or inspired by - handmade or store bought - would be super fun. DeLorean items, Doc Brown, Marty - it's all good. Tees, keychains, posters, postcards, figures, autographs, promotion things, whatever. It was just Back to the Future Day on Oct 21st! I dressed up as Marty. :D Silly? Yes, of course. But that's half the fun!

6. Something Handmade
What's your specialty? I'd love to see what you love to make by hand. Knit, crochet, sew, printmaking, woodwork, paper crafting, photography, paint, art, embroidery, screen printing, etc., etc., etc.....I'm leaving this totally open. If you need inspiration, feel free to check out my pinterest boards which have TONS of crafty inspiration divided up by category.

7. Gift certificates. For just about anywhere!
Craft stores, Restaurants, retail stores, online stores, big box stores - you name it. I don't mind if you've used part of it and have $7.52 left on it. I know sometimes people give you ones for places you might not like or need or use and they sit and collect dust in your wallet.

Three ones I could use most?

8. Anything Boston Bruins for my husband!
I'd love to get him some Bruins stuff. Being in Florida, there's not a lot of it available here. Anything would be awesome from keychains, stickers, car magnets, tess (XXL), etc. Help me surprise him!!

9. Do something nice for someone
This is the time of year when so many people are stressed out. If you can try and do something nice for someone else, it really goes a long way. It can be something simple like holding a door for someone with too many things in their hands, or helping carry something heavy. Maybe you can donate some of your time to a local charity, or if not time, try to give a couple bucks to an organization that matters to you. (Animals, literacy, environment, etc.) Doing something nice for someone else freely and with no expectation of getting something back is just about the best feeling in the world. So try to pass it on. :D

And last but certainly not least... 10. Holiday cards!
Bonus if they have penguins on them, or owls, or winter scenes and extra bonus if they are Yule/Solstice themed. But honestly, any and all cards are SO welcome! I absolutely love mail. I check my mailbox every day because I just love getting mail. It's like a present.

ALLERGY NOTE: Because of my migraines, I can't have anything that was around smoke and I can't have any scented products unless they smell like food. Anything with a musk or a perfume or non-edible scent will trigger a migraine. I am also allergic to artificial sweeteners. Thank you.

Thank you in advance! I hope you and yours have a beautiful holiday season!

UPDATE: Dec 6th My sincere apologies for being tardy in replying, thanking or sending cards in return. The day before Thanksgiving (Nov 25th) I woke up in massive dental pain and long story short, tomorrow, Dec 7th I need an emergency root canal, post and crown. So I'm behind on everything right now. I don't even have my tree decorated yet! So please bear with me and know I sincerely appreciate your thoughtfulness.

I can send you a card and I'll see what else I can do. Please PM your name, address, username and wish list link with what I'm gifting you. This will make gifting easier this year.

P.S. love your shop. I believe I bought a few pieces for friends as gifts. Your jewelry is so beautiful.

Hi! So happy to see you out here again! I will definitely be sending you some surprises!!
If you're ok with getting a Christmas card (mildly religious) I'd be happy to send you one! If it would bother you, though, please let me know and I will see if I can find something else.
I'll send you a card, and I shared the links to your shop on my list (when it gets posted). :)
The address here is the address where cards can be sent?
Sending you a card or letter or some kind of snail mail! :D
I'll include your shop in some of my #CraftHour activities and also tweet about you! Happy to help another Etsy seller. :)

Speaking of beads, would these be any use to you?

I shall see if I've got any beads left over that may be of use. I use different materials than you so it may be a little out of my league!

A card is forthcoming. :)
Thanks, I appreciate the shout-out! And for beads, sure! I'd be interested to see what I could make with them, thanks! :)
Hi! And thanks for the shout-outs! I really appreciate it. I hope I can make something beautiful for you too! :)
I have a little something, here, with your name on it! I actually saw it before you posted your list and thought of you, immediately. I'll likely send it out to you, next week.
