Here are some amazing online shops I've stumbled onto. They are all super artsy, elegant and innovative. Many include handmade work, some of which is eco-friendly. Give them a click for your holiday shopping!
Cosa Verde- Handmade green clothes, accessories, home decor, and gifts.
Fey Handmade- Feminine, delicate, modern, handmade for women, kids, and home
Spool 72- Lovely indie-style clothes and accessories, affordable prices
Rifle Paper Company- Adorable cards, prints, posters. Some great for kids' rooms, charming wrapping paper and recipe cards.
Thanks to Modish for drawing my attention to these wonderful businesses!

Woo hoo! This is my lucky day. My Mantis Napkin Rings made it into a post on the DIY blog! Thanks, DIY! Also, thanks to jacjewelry for including my little apple ornament in her treasury! And, for the first time, I have something in an Etsy gift guide! It's that apple again. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Getting ready for Saturday's craft show at Behnke's. Be there or be square!

Ok friends, I think this might be the wave of the future. I remember making these as a child and loving it, so why not start up again? Therefore, I submit: paper beads by bakerswife.These were created from the pages of a catalog, coated with glue, and strung along with other beads onto colorful embroidery floss.
Riding the felt wave! A bit more up on flickr:
Mark your calendars- my only craft show this season will be this Saturday, November 14th at Behnke's Nursery in Beltsville, MD, for their Holiday Craft Fair and Open House. The show runs 11 to 4, and features a raffle to benefit Autism Speaks, food from Black Cat BBQ, 20 crafters like me, and door prizes. Feel free to bring along your donations for Toys for Tots.
