Tis The Season Home Shopping Guide 2013

Happy Holidays everyone.

Well the shopping season is in motion and we're here to help. This post is all about out "Tis The Season Home Shopping Guide" for 2013. Shop from the convenience of your home. No waiting in lines. No looking for parking. And my favorite, no going out in the cold weather. These items and shops are all from handmade artisans and crafters. When you buys from these shops and studios, you are helping support small businesses. You may be helping to pay for a child's ballet lessons or sports uniform. So shop with us and support small businesses and handmade. Most of these businesses take PayPal. You may also use your credit cards securely through PayPal. Some take other methods also.

You will be happy with your buying experiences from these shops. Smaller businesses means better customer relations, better made products, and you can really get a hold of someone if you have a question or comment. So again, I say support small businesses and support handmade. You won't be disappointed.

Shades of Blue and Gray

Happy New Year to you all and may you be blessed all year long.

Well now that the holidays are over, it's time to get back to normal everyday life. It's almost the middle of winter, so I thought that we'd go with a wintry color theme. So post your items that are shades of blue or gray. It can be any blue or gray item as long as it is handmade.

Don't forget to look at the "Handmade Shops Buttons" page and the "Blogs Buttons" Page. You may find your new favorite shop or blog there. There are so many wonderful shops and blogs there. The shops are all handmade shops and the blogs are a variety of everything. There is also a tutorials page where you will find some of my favorite tutorials. Have a good one? Send me the link and I may post it as one of my favorites.
