More mail

My winnings from the Freckled Nest giveaway are still making there way to me.  I received this handmade pincushion from Vics over at BrambleBird.  I really do love things people make so much better than mass produced items.  
With the holidays fast approaching shopping for gifts has crossed my mind a few times.  I would like to challenge myself to make or buy handmade items as much as possible this year.
What about you?  Do you plan to buy handmade?

  2. I am going handmade this year, as well! I have been experimenting with many different gift ideas and once I perfect a few of them... let the mass gift production begin!

  3. I love handmade things! I try to buy few things at least a year, depending of my needs. Handmade things are much more personal than the ones from store!:)

  5. Lucky girl! That hot pink color is amazing. I first got into Etsy years ago when I was looking for unique Christmas gifts, so the tradition will continue I'm sure! I cheat and gift my own photography too, in the form of prints or calendars. :) It's just tough finding cool handmade gifts for my brothers, usually they wind up with something from Think Geek instead. ;)

  6. I've tried to buy handmade for the past two years, but it's tough to buy for dad's and fellas especially crazy ones who buy pinballs like it's his job (eyeroll) ;)
