Please excuse the mess... I am currently rearranging my blog. :)


I'm dreaming of a handmade Christmas...

I thought I'd let you all in on the most awesome thing ever! The handmade pledge! Check it out:

I have taken this pledge. The pledge: "I pledge to buy handmade this holiday season, and request that others do the same for me." I know it is almost impossible in our world to buy 100% handmade, so I believe I will buy 90% handmade (I'll do my best).

Will you take the pledge?

There are so many AWESOME things to find on Etsy, and other online shops. Please check it out before you head out to the mall.
Some examples of the wide variety of items you can find on Etsy:
-One of a kind Jewelry from Cryztalvisions

-Soy candles from Aroma Fields Candles
-Unique knitted items from A Stitch to Wear
-Some awesome paper items from Paper Lady Invites of course!

-Custom felted likeness of your dog from AmeliaMakesArt
-Perfume from Artedelprofumo

-How about a Yeti or A Little Bigfoot from Stelabird?

-Even some beautiful lingerie from OnTheInside

Well, they probably have whatever you can think up. Just check out Etsy!
