Hella Handmade Creations: December 2020

Does anyone else feel like November just flew by and December came out of nowhere?  I'm going to need time to slow down just a bit! But, the upside of it being December, is there's a whole new round of pretties that will be available in this month's HHC! 

What is HHC?
Hella Handmade Creations is an online artisan store that offers a variety of exclusive products! The shop will be open 12/14-12/21 for pre-order at www.hellahandmadecreations.com and there, you will be able to choose from over 35 beautiful creations handcrafted specifically for HHC from crafters around the world!  Each maker has chosen a specific theme that resonates with them to create products inspired by!  Once pre-order closes, the 4 week turn-around time begins.  I know it seems like a long time, but keep in mind, most of these makers make these beautiful items in small batches, ensure quality control, then ship it off to the HHC headquarters in Honolulu, Hawaii!  The lovely HHC ladies then sort through tons of packages and the shipping extravaganza begins!  You'll have all your pretties in no time, and believe me, you won't regret it!
