Looking to do some Christmas Shopping?


I would like to encourage you to consider the following merchants, all of whom are friends of mine that I would love to support. All these items are high quality and hand made. Let's go shopping, shall we?

How about an adorable kitty loaf T-shirt, made by Kate O'Leary of Arsonist Cow? Her Etsy site also features adorable Christmas Cards and handkerchiefs.


How about some 100% organic and 100% awesome herbal teas made by Sara Keely McGuire? Faelyn's Faerie Brew Teas are delicious (I speak from experience) and healthy and are available in a number of loose leaf varieties: Gaia's Gift, Phoenix Balm, Triple Goddess, and Masculina-TEA. For more information, please leave a comment and I will hook you up.

Looking for some precious hand-puppets? Check out Noah Ginex of the Noah Ginex Puppet Company's Etsy Store. This could be your new best friend:

Rosie Tiger
Or is jewelry more your style? Check out Beth Cummings of Diffraction's beautiful jewelry. If you are in the Chicago area, be sure to stop by her trunk show Dec 13th from noon to 5pm at 2050 W. Addison. My personal favorites are these Chicago wine charms:

Happy Shopping!
