Tis The Season!

I can't believe Christmas is almost here again! Where does the time go?
The past two years I have eleviated a lot of stress by shopping online. I try to buy as many handmade items as possible. It supports independent Artist ( a lot of my friends :) ) and you are purchasing a quality product that is so much more special.
I thought I would share some items from a few of my favorite shops.

Mona, A.K.A "SewingGranny" www. sewinggranny.etsy.com is awesome to work with, she has created so many wonderful, special orders for me and I love her and her shop dearly. I have shown a couple photo's of the gorgeous quilt she made for me, which I will treasure, and also a photo of the cutest towel I have ever seen!

Another dear friend, Amanda of "Chloe Boutique" www.wildlifer78.etsy.com has absolutely stunning Artisan jewelry! Here are a couple of my favorites, I personally own the first pair, "Sugary Plum" earrings :)

Chris Dembinski of "Crafts By Chris" is such a sweetheart! I love her shop and have personally purchased many of her gorgeous beads. Check her out at www.craftsbychris.etsy.com
These are just some of the many beads I have purchased from Chris, aren't they gorgeous?
I have also included a photo of the earrings I made with them :)

Michelle from "Cozy Moments" www.cozymoments.etsy.com
has some simply to die for handmade soaps, lotions, perfumes and other personal care and bath products. She is such a sweetie and a pleasure to work with! My personal favorites from her shop are her version of Bath & Body Works "Vanilla Bean Noel", they smell good enough to eat!

Carrie's shop, "Tiger Lily Studio" www.tigerlilystudio.etsy.com is just fabulous! I have purchased a couple of her organic lavender blend Dream Pillows and OMG! I just love them! What a way to unwind at the end of the day. You will love them too!

Hope you enjoy these selections of Handmade Artisan items. I will be adding some more goodies in the coming days for your viewing pleasure :)

Happy Holidays!
