I (heart) homemade.

If we’ve ever talked about where I find great gifts, I’m sure you’ve heard me mention Etsy.

And if you’re into social media at all, I’m sure you’ve heard of it.
But I talk to a lot of folks who have never heard of Etsy.

So what is Etsy?
Etsy is like a big, huge international arts-and-crafts fair without the crowds of people.
You can go and browse for tons of different handmade products
OR you can find craft supplies
OR even stumble upon fun vintage items.

It really is one of my favorite places to find beautiful, unique, adorable and (usually) very affordable gifts.

And although I really love making gifts myself,
I also love supporting other artists who make beautiful products.

So when you start working on that Christmas list, be sure to check out Etsy!

ALSO…Have you seen an idea in my 12 Crafts of Christmas series that you loved
but don’t have time to make yourself?
Just let me know and I’ll be happy to make it for you!
Contact me via email and I’ll get back to you with a price for each item!

This is not a sponsored post at all.
I just really really love Etsy-especially the few Etsy shops I linked!

    I *heart* Etsy too. I’m not sure how anyone couldn’t! Thanks for highlighting some of your favorites – I’ve added a couple to my favorites too (although I already had some of the same ones)!

    I am honestly still stunned by the number of people (people whom I love & interact with on a regular basis) that have never heard of Etsy. It is almost unimaginable. It really has become my go-to source for gifts, items for the kids & of course, myself! Hugs. I’m planning to try the freezer paper shirts…will let you know how it goes.

    Etsy is my favorite! Also I need to go and pick out a few of the scrabble pieces, I remember when you did a blog about them. Oh and I love the Hats too! Baby girl needs a cute hat for sure!
