tis the season. . .

. . .  well, almost.

. . .
But, it is the season to start planning your holiday gift giving.
You might want to check out some of the online Etsy shops.  Now, and  throughout this holiday season I'll post some interesting etsy shops. I hope you check them out and find something handcrafted to give as a gift this year.

Check out SueBs shop here.
She has beautiful handcrafted journals and books.
Like this one -

It has plenty of white signatures separated with colored handmade paper.
I have a ton of sketchbooks, but this one I'm dedicating to only doodled quilting designs.  When it's full, I'll have my own personal journal of custom designs.

Kathleen's shop is here.  She makes all kinds of great quilted bags.  Check out all the great fabrics!

If you are a quilter or need to buy a gift for a quilter - don't miss Vicki's shop here. She sells her own hand dyed fabrics and patterns.

Go and look at Terri's beautiful art here.

Handmade soaps can found here.
(the links are not high-lighting in color, so be sure to drag your cursor over the words 'here' and that will direct you to the etsy shop indicated)
Happy Holiday Shopping!

I love Etsy and shop there all the time. I plan to do a lot of shopping there this Christmas since I will be working every day until right before Christmas. I'll be checking to see the shops you identify.

Love the journal you got from Sue. I also like the sketch you show. I am working on a handmade journal (see and was looking for some closure ideas, so this site was very helpful. Perhaps I'll need to treat myself to a different kind of journal for a change.

I saw that you were thinking about doing a version of the Zig Zaggy quilt. Let me know if I can assist. I was thinking of quilting it on my own with straight lines, but perhaps I'll send it off to you for a change. I love the header image you have on your blog for fall.
