Featured "Gift Item" - Our Faerie Blessing Bottles!
Our soap pots are bubbling feverishly, ...yarn balls spinning wildly, ...art print printer humming---our busiest time of year! I know my fellow-crafters feel the same...it's like Santa's workshop!
With the approach of the holidays and inherent pinch & stress we're all feeling over the economy, I'd like to encourage everyone to consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping with crafters & artisans, specifically USA crafters & artisans to support our homeland economy. And I don't say this to serve just myself, but ANY crafter & artisan small businesses trying to eek out a living!
Sure, we all love our overseas-made techie gadgets that make life easier and connected......but consider making the conscious choice to support US small business folk as you plan at least some of your holiday gifts & stocking stuffers and hostess gifts!
Nothing is quite so special as a handmade item! A throwback to times when EVERYTHING was made by-hand and sold via the village shop or bazaar! Some children grow up today not even knowing what "handmade" is!
Only now it's so easy to stroll *online* village squares via your computer or other techie gadget!
Thanks for your consideration! And best wishes to all my fellow crafters in the coming season!
