Just a short note to mention what I'm doing today. I'm starting my Christmas shopping! Yup. Right here from home. I thought maybe you should start too.
Up front: I do not sell anything on Etsy, but I do love it. I love the stuff and I love the idea. Giving money directly to the people who make the product. I 100% believe that a handmade gift is the best gift.
If you handmake it, fab. But if you can't, something someone else made is pretty cool too.
Go buy someone something super cute! I bet you they'll love it. Off I go to do just that.
