12 Days of Handmade; White Moth

Ok, this shop is overseas -- but it's Lithuania so that doesn't really count. And it's still handmade so, shop on. The person I've known longest in my life is the hardest to shop for -- my mom. She loves crazy jewelry, but frankly I'm sick of buying it. I also buy her a new cell phone every few years, only to listen to her complain about how hard it is to use, until I buy her a new one a few years later and she gets made at me for taking it away when she finally gets used to...

12 Days of Handmade; Love & Squalor

I'm sure it goes without saying -- but I love fun prints and bright colors. OH MY DO I LOVE THEM. Love & Squalor features some really great designs in eye-catching colors. (Note from LHS Brand Coordinator Amy B: "This shop's name is a reference to the same Salinger story from which I named my daughter. Uh, LOVE.") Hopefully my other brother in law, and his so-super-awesome-I-need-a-sister-in-law girlfriend love the really really cool tea towels and pot-holder set I got them! And if not, I'll just steal them.

12 Days of Handmade; Meadow Tea

Hey there, Hip Squeaks! This post is brought to you by Brand Coordinator Extraordinaire Amy B. I ususally lurk in the background answering questions over on etsy but today is my time in the sunshine to tell you about one of my favorite shops, Meadow Tea! Last year, I made a little coffee gift basket for my best gal-- nice coffee, a cute mug, and the world's most awesome seasonal tree coasters. I'm also loving these awesome iPhone app coasters, how perfect for all the technophiles in my life! (Hint: it's just about everyone.) Want to save 15%? Use coupon...

12 Days Of Handmade; OooohStitchy

Ooooh Stitchy has been my go-to shop when I need a gift for someone that I have NO idea what to get them. Devin takes your favorite pop-culture quotes and foibles and stitches them onto awesome hoops to make ridiculously cool and clever wall hangings. I also have a small collection of Arrested Development hoops of my own. Nobody tell my brother-in-law, but I think he's getting this, this year. It'll be perfect in his filthy LA apartment. BONUS: We are so awesome that we have a coupon code! Use LITTLELOVE for 10% off-- it's good until the end of...

12 Days of Handmade!

  Every holiday season starts out the same for me. I make the medium-length list of people on my iPhone, and put clever ideas next to their names. Most years, I end up buying half of my stuff on Etsy, the rest via Target, Amazon, or the Apple Store (my husband is so spoiled). I've always tried to buy local or handmade as much as possible but would always end up with my fair share of mass-produced, made-overseas stuff. I'm 90% done with my list (if anyone has any ideas for a 13 year old boy, dear heavens, send them...
