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 pledged last month too!
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. 🙂
yay for handmade! fyi, my shop is open. http://www.mrskona.etsy.com
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 🙂
Yay! I love that everyone wants handmade things. Lots of awesome craft fairs if you feel like dealing with people especially in NY. http://www.brooklynindiemarket.com/ is awesome!
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 😉
