An Artisan Handmade Christmas - Gift Ideas - Week 7

 

 

Wow!  We are already more than half-way through the Countdown to Christmas 2019 - only 5 more weeks to go!  It’s hard to imagine that Christmas will soon be here! According to the ever ticking Christmas clock, there are only 49 days (when this bog was posted) until Santa Claus drops down that chimney and either leaves gifts or lumps of coal for deserving (or not-so-deserving) boys and girls.  Since Christmas is looming, now is the perfect time to start your holiday shopping and the Countdown is the perfect place! Remember this motto: SHOP EARLY, SHOP OFTEN! And, most of all, PURCHASE HANDMADE!

First in the Shop - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

I always enjoy browsing through the handmade shops of artist friends.  So much talent and such creativity! This week’s Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade features the first item in each shop (as of when this blog was being worked on) featured here:  First In the Shop. Oftentimes the first item is the newest - sometimes it’s not. Either way, the items are all wonderful and each will fill that need for a gift perfectly.  

 

Remember:  SUPPORT INDEPENDENT, HANDMADE ARTISTS

Artisan Favorites - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

When you buy something handmade 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.  J. Donald Walters
