Handmade Christmas - Part 1

This past year I spent many many hours exploring the inspiring world of creativity and handmade beauty, both on Etsy and at all of the craft fairs I participated in.  And the more and more I get involved and connected, the more I love it.  I don't know if it is because I am a maker myself, but I am just endlessly fascinated by what people design and create with their own hands.  So of course I spend a lot of time coveting and drooling, so I thought Christmas would be an excellent opportunity to add some of these items to cart, as it were, even if they weren't going to stay in my possession for long!  Here are a few pics of some of my favorite purchases, and scroll down to the bottom for links to more information about each artist.

  1. That bowl is gorgeous. I'm hoping to add more handmade items to my gift-giving as well. :)
