Take the Pledge
I love giving handmade things for so many reasons. I appreciate the time, energy and expertise invested in each object. I feel great about supporting makers who are building their dreams and sharing it with us. I believe in giving gifts that are as special as the people receiving them. Will you take the Handmade Pledge?
One of my favorite things to do is buy the top 10 winning tea towel prints from a fab Durham company called Spoonflower. Spoonflower prints custom designs on multiple fabrics, and they also host a weekly design contest. Right now you can vote for your favorite tea towel design, and next week you can buy the 10 best in a fat quarter bundle. Hem those babies up and you have a very sweet holiday gift that is beautiful, functional, artist designed, and hand made by you!
Map it Out
Did you know Etsy has a shop local feature? I love it! You can look at where to find local vendors as well as individual maker shops. So cool to see what makers are living near me.
I am so excited to see what my maker friends have been cooking up for the holiday! I look forward to seeing you all at one of the many markets I will be at starting mid November!
