Etsy Shops & Handcrafted Christmas

I know times are tough all over. I have even cut back on my online shopping sprees, I have to say, it's going to be a handcrafted Christmas for my loved ones.

Personally, I think handcrafted items are often more thoughtful than store bought gifts. Despite the item or skill level; especially when made by a child. I think some of my favorite gifts over the years were items my children made in school and pre-school.

If you are not the crafty sort, pop on over to Etsy. There are TONS of wonderful crafters including a few of my favorites:

RagamuffinQuilts

FabricsandQuilts

AshlawnFarmsRagQuiltCreations

TheStickerPicker

AMamaBear

BellaMental

Don'tWorryBeHippie

These are just a few of my faves. Come visit soon and often to find wonderful handcrafted items!

I'm right there with you on the handmade gifts this year! There are so many talented artists and crafters on Etsy that it will be easy to find something wonderful for everyone on my list! Plus, it feels great to support "the little guy" instead of pouring more money into the corporate machine!
Thanks!!!
