my handmade faves part one


I want to pop in and share my "handmade faves part one" with you before I head up to the studio. This will be a little ongoing series of some of my favorites. The collections I don't anticipate will be thematically arranged but rather ensembles of pieces that are inspiring to me at the moment.
I don't want to jump into Christmas too early because Thanksgiving and autumn are certainly worth embracing. But it doesn't hurt to begin handmade gift giving early so to relieve last minute stress. {I'm telling myself this as well. I'm soooo last minute it's just plain silly!}

Have you seen the Heart Handmade Holiday Zine just released today? You can preview it and download it. You may see me in it along with a downloadable print I made. Marichelle did some amazing work putting the entire zine together!

Off to work for me,
