I had a really nice holiday and I really enjoyed Christmas this year because I got EVERYONE (well everyone I chose to give gifts to) something from Etsy. Let me tell you - the results were all the same, people were very content with their gifts.
I took the handmade pledge last year and it is something I really try and shop by. With some clothing it is hard because you need to try things on - we aren't all models! But things like jewelry, pottery, photographs, and accessories are very fun things to buy off etsy. PLUS it helps support handcrafted artists everywhere.
I am really proud of the gifts I gave and am so happy that they were enjoyed :)
I also hope that everyone out there had a safe and happy holiday. Time to shine in 2009!
