Santa Claus is Coming to Town Charm Dangle and Tag

I've been so worried about my son's sight (won't go into health issues here) that I haven't achieved near what I wanted by this time of the season ... Christmas is ONLY a little over 5 FIVE weeks away! Time is flying by us. 

Making this Dangle inspired by the song "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" lifted my spirits and left the tune ringing through my mind - I don't think I want it to leave yet.  When I realize I'm humming it, I get happy and start thinking about making Christmas cookies. 

The two Santas on the right are Jingle Bells!!!!
I have enough supplies to make a couple more similar to this one. If you're interested in ordering some before Christmas, let me know ASAP ... The cost would be $17 each or 2 for $30. Shipping is FREE in the continental USA or $8 for most International Shipments. Just send me an email to and I'll send you my PayPal link. I need at least 2 weeks before Christmas to get them to you on time.

Autumn / Fall Inspired Bead Charm Dangle

Despite some family health situations, I managed to get this Autumn inspired dangle completed.  It really put me in the mood for Thanksgiving and Giving Thanks :)
I used just a basic clip, the initial start piece for the dangle was a "redirected" earring and since the silver leaf charms and split rings didn't quite match the color scheme I touched them up with a copper leafing pen.  The huge metal leaf charm at the bottom is almost 2" long.  The boarders, acorn and gourd is from K & Co. and the embossing powder for the leaf stamp on the tag is Stampin'Up.  For an eye catcher I used a small jade bead in the center of the dangle.
