Handmade for the Holidays

Happy November, Everyone! Can you believe we're already to the 11th month of 2011?! Before we know it the holidays will be upon us. First Thanksgiving and then Christmas! I'm sure many of you are already starting to think about Christmas gifts, but maybe you have no idea what to give some of the people on your list.

Welcome to the handmade community! I would like to help you think outside the box a little this holiday season. Won't you consider purchasing at least some handmade decorations or gifts for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year? There are so many amazing artisans and crafters on Artfire and Etsy, and I'd encourage you to take a look at some of their shops! You are sure to find gift ideas for everyone on your list!

Each one of these shops is owned by an individual artisan or crafter using the talents they possess to try to make a living. Your encouragement and support are priceless to them and each sale no matter how small is a blessing! Won't you shop handmade for the holidays?
