etsy crushes // NO. 6

christmas is quickly approaching, and i know some of you have yet to start your christmas shopping...unless you're like me and sort of buy cute things throughout the year and then decide which friend to give them to once christmas comes around. ;) really, i do that. i usually have someone in mind when i buy a particular item, or i just buy some cute stuff and then end up making something extra that's more personal to go along with that gift. the past few years i've made almost all of my presents. i've crocheted scarves, ear warmers, mug cozies, etc. one year i handmade a personalized christmas card for all of my closest friends...each one was different...a piece of art, i tell ya! whew...that one took a long time. one year i was really into designing different covers on moleskin journals. a couple years ago i made a "canvas" out of large paint sticks i got from lowes and home depot...fo' free. i stained them all with a dark wood stain and then used white paint for the text i wanted. anyway, all this to say, there are lots of DIY projects you can do for personalized gifts, and i fully encourage that. this year, however, the majority of my christmas shopping is going down on etsy so i can support small and handmade businesses. since everyone and their mum is doing holiday gift guides these days, i figured i'd jump on the bandwagon and give you some christmas gift ideas >> etsy style.

Megan McIlvaine said...

Megan McIlvaine said...

i heard of A Pair of Pears just a few weeks ago! one of my chattanooga friends went to school with them and was like "you should read this blog!" so fun :) and of course, lady! i like promoting my friends :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

i know! i love all the prints in her store! they are beautiful and creative.

Megan McIlvaine said...

i'm a little bit obsessed with milk+crown's shop :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

i wish i'd taken pics too! i made 5 or 6 of them and they were all different. i definitely wasn't in the blogger mindset of "MUST TAKE PICTURES OF EVERYTHING" at the point. :)
