A Crafty Holiday ....


I am participating in




Started by the lovely Anglea Flicker, A Crafty Holiday is a way for all of us to come together and support the handmade movement. Read all about here inspiration here.


I am buying handmade this holiday season because:

"I have a FABULOUS job that I love. Part of this job is finding and helping promote fellow creative women. When you read their inspiring stories in the pages of Where Women Create, you can help but want to support these artists and the work that they do.

From A Woman's Soul.
Through A Woman's Eyes.
By A Woman's Hands.


That is our motto at WWC.


It's a great feeling to purchase something knowing that it has truly come from an artists inspiration ... their soul.
I am buying handmade to keep that feeling alive."

Part of our assignment is to write our handmade shopping list. Being in the position I am, I couldn't possibly add each artist that I support. There are HUNDREDS!!!!

So what I would ask you to do is to visit


Typepad


Each day 3 different artists that we have featured on our blog are sharing their holiday traditions. Plus, they're giving away some GREAT prizes!

~You don't want to miss a single day~

Also, please take a moment to click through my blog roll and buttons. I adore each and every one of these ladies and purchase from them whenever I can. For more creative women, visit the blog roll of Where Women Create, but be warned ... You may spend all day visiting these creative women, so make sure you have time:)

I do have to share one very special handmade item that is on her way to a certain 4 year old in the Hill household ....





I can't wait to see what she looks like!
I am so grateful to Christina and her team for making a holiday wish come true.


~THANK YOU~


And while you are out shopping this holiday season, please remember ...

We need to support each other and the handmade movement!
