So, today I sold my 100th item in my Etsy store and felt the urge to celebrate in a small but meaningful way over here. The Etsy community is kind of an affirmation on my lifestyle right now. It has made it possible to showcase handmade items and show the value of putting something together that started in your mind. I love it.
I found this site today from SouleMama's blog and had to share.
Buy Handmade is all about buying or making handmade goods for the holidays! I am so happy that this is even possible. I actually sent my dad this link because he is pretty sure handmade gifts are okay to give until you're about eight. You can guess who won't be getting something handmade this year!
Except for the few purchases we made on iTunes and Amazon.com for family members, my gift list is handmade. Thanks to a motivated husband, we've almost purchased all of our gifts ahead of schedule. This not only saves the panic of last minute shopping but allows us to make wise purchases in order to keep expenses in check. The rest of our gifts are in my mind and just waiting for a few spare hours to be put together. And really, these are the gifts I will take great satisfaction in making because they are for people I love.
So, leave a comment and tell me whats on your Christmas Giving list. I've got three BamPop stamps ready for a home. I'll pick a winner on Saturday night and announce it sometime Sunday. Happy 100th Etsy Purchase Day!
