Handmade Christmas Gift Ideas - Three for Thursday



Christmas will soon be here.  As anyone who browses the internet know, there are millions and millions of gifts out there, many of which are mass produced in sweatshop conditions.  But there is always another option: BUY HANDMADE! I love this very timely and true quote by J. Donald Walters:



When you buy something made by a person, there is something special there. And you do feel it. The consciousness with which the thing is made is often more important than the thing itself.



To help promote the idea of handmade, I try a couple of times a month to feature three items from three handmade artists.  This week the three artists are: lampwork artist Charlotte of Covergirlbeads; jewelry artist Sharon of BlondePeachJewelry; and me, Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs - Jewelry.  I hope you enjoy these beautiful choices. And I hope at least one ends up in your shopping cart . . . and then under the Christmas tree.
