A Crafty Holiday...

Angela Flicker over at The Artists' House, has come up with a wonderful way to spread the word about buying handmade this holiday season. For the Crafty Holiday Blog Hop, a group of bloggers are all writing about why we buy handmade for the holidays, as well as showing a few handmade items we are cosidering buying or are hoping to recieve. Pretty genius, huh?!?!

I try to buy as many handmade gifts as possible during the holidays, as well as for family and friend's birthdays and special occasions. I like knowing that the gifts are unique, well crafted and made by a real person who's put as much love into his/her products as I put into mine.

This year I will be getting my Christmas cards as well as gifts for my family and friends from etsy.... here are a few gifts I'm considering as well as a little wish list of things I'd like. :-)

1. Winter in the Little Forest by Stephanie Fizer
2. Deck the Halls Ornament Girls by Mew paper Arts

Gifts for Family and Friends...

Isn't it cute? I'm hoping to get it posted in the shop by this evening. Right now I am off to plan and set up my Boot Camp class for this evening. Last weeks class was pretty tough, so I need to bring it this week!
