Friends + Family + I Want This

I pledge to buy handmade!

I took this pledge for the first time last year, and I will do so again this holiday season! Please encourage your friends and family to buy (and create!) handmade gifts. Whether you do so online, in local shops, or in your own kitchen, the gift of a handmade item can’t be beat. Go here to learn more.

    I completely agree. I think I will pledge as well. I never saw this but I’ve already bought more than half my gifts from etsy. 🙂

    Handmade is the best gift there is! We’ve already done some shopping at Etsy and our holiday cards are made from a picture we took. It’s much more personal so I like it 🙂

    Yesterday, we had our ‘Sinterklaas’, which could be compared to your Santa Claus. Most funny thing is to make gifts yourself, so I always start early… Knitting was the quickest thing to do 😉
