..to 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.
These adorable hand felted creations are from Chimera, you can find her adorable things here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/chimera?ref=seller_info
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."
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!
