As I posted earlier this year, I am making changes to my blog and to my commitment to buy more handmade items or items from Etsy sellers. You can help by nominating your favorite shops and I will look at them and list them on my blog if they fit what I am looking for.
Please, make sure the shop is up and running. I just removed one because they have been closed since before Christmas and she has not reopened and I feel personally that doesn't give my readers the best experience they can have.
I have no ties to any of these shops, I do not receive free gifts, I don't win their monthly giveaways, I do not receive any royalties of any sort. I list shops that I would want to shop from. Perhaps they are stay at home moms, perhaps I have done business with them in the past, they recycle items into better items, whatever the case is, I feel they deserve mention and our business.
I am still deciding how to spend my January homemade money. I really want a tea cozy for my morning tea, but I also love polymer clay jewelry as well as other jewelry, there are candles, crocheted items, gift cards, birdhouses, etc. And of course, I need to purchase some quilt fabric for my son and his wife and their new baby.
I will keep you posted on my decision, bu in the meantime, send me your suggestions, we need to help each other as much as we can.
