so this Christmas was a very new experience for me. i bought the majority of my presents online.
part of the fun for me is going to the stores and getting inspired, but with 3 young boys under 5 and 2 businesses to run, i knew that was not going to happen...at least not in a fun way...in more of a "i would rather poke myself with dull toothpicks" type of way.
i had so much fun online shopping for people though after the kiddos went to bed! Etsy makes this oh so easy.
pair it with a nice black polo and sweet golf hat and he is going to the the most stylish 5 year old on the course!
TOM'S shoes. i own about 5 pairs and i probably shouldn't wear 4 of them, but i do. I totally believe in the company and the idea of self-perpetuating/sustaining non-profit and so my nieces (already, so again i am safe) received their own pairs.
I tried to make as many presents too as time allowed, but these days that doesn't amount to many...so i relied on other talented people to spread handmade love for me! For example - the very talented, beautiful friend of mine, Whitney of Bel Kai Designs - she is accepting orders until the 11th, so hurry up folks!
more examples AFTER the holidays - i don't want any spoilers!
i encourage you all to do the same - there is still time for a lot of stores! www.etsy.com - spread the handmade love!
