Hello to all of Paige's lovely readers! I hope you were inspired by Nancy's amazing ideas to consider handmade for the holidays this year. However, I know that not everyone has time to make their own gifts or perhaps has the necessary skills in order to complete the gift item they're hoping to give. For example, I am not a knitter, so I may somehow have to twist Nancy's arm to make me one of those drool-worthy herringbone cowls. But I digress....
For those of us who can't knit or sew or make neat-o things out of wood or metal, you are still able to gift fabulous handmade products this holiday season. I love browsing handmade shops. It is absolutely incredible the amount of original and one-of-a-kind stuff you can find. Etsy is now my go-to place for gift items, and I can usually find just what I'm looking for. I treat my Favorites as a wish list- things I want to go back to and purchase, all the while hoping that little "sold" doesn't pop up underneath.
I put together a list of fabulous shops for you to check out- a little something for anyone you might be shopping for.

Amazing, right? And that's just a tiny bit of the crazy goodness you can find when you start searching.
Remember, when you shop handmade,
you are not only finding a unique gift, you are supporting a unique person.
