Monday Holiday Gift Ideas

As we are now on our way into the holiday season, as is evidenced by our enthusiastic neighbors who have already set up a yard full of Christmas ornaments and lights, I want to encourage my friends, family, followers, and fans to shop handmade! The reward (besides feeling good about supporting an artist or artisan) is that the item you choose will be more unique, more carefully made, and carry with it the love and positive energy of the person whose hands created it!

To start us off, I have chosen a few random items from Etsy that fit into several price ranges. The search feature on Etsy is very easy and thorough, if you care to take a look and see what you can find yourself!

And don't forget to check out Made by SwirlyGirl on Etsy for other gift ideas, such as card sets, matted photo art, and artful coasters!
