'Tis the Season... buy handmade!

Since joining Etsy this fall, I have been completely overwhelmed by the amazing artists, from all over the world, who sell their creations through this marketplace.

Each day this season, I will be highlighting a different Etsy shop that I have found, and share their work with you. 

Needle Felted Santa Claus

These adorable hand felted creations are from Chimera, you can find her adorable things here:

She opened her shop in January 2008, and it is full of fun-both things already made or supplies to make your own goodies.  Here is a snippet from her profile:  "I've been playing with fiber and crafting my entire life. Wool is my favorite material because it is so versatile. With wool I can make a silky scarf, spin colorful yarn, sculpt a landscape or felt a durable rug. Adding to the fun is the ability to dye wool any colors I choose, and to add in other fibers to create something truly unique."

Needle Felted Rabbit

There are so many reasons to buy handmade: 

1.  You support the dreams and hard work of someone pursuing their passion.

2.  You get a unique gift you can't find in a shop.

3.  You can find a gift that will truly delight an individual, find something perfectly tailored to their interests, and they will know how much you care!

'Tis the season to buy handmade!


  1. These little felt creations are the cutest things I have ever seen. Oh, I love them. Can't wait to see what else you have planned to show us. Awesome.

  2. The felted santa is sooo cute! I love his beard.
