A lack of an artist last week.

So, I have already failed at bringing you a new artist every week.

So, to make up for it, I will bring you many.

With the holidays approaching and money tight, there are still ways to get expressive and wonderful gifts for people. Sites dedicated to hand made goods by really talented artists could really help out strained wallets, and show that you have a thoughtful insight into the person you are buying for.

Etsy- a good site with not too many ugly sweaters. The soap, jewelry, and ceramics are some of my favorites to look at. Also comes with handy guides in the form of favorites and treasuries.

The Pear Project- online store, recently started I believe.

Smashing Darling- another recently started online shopping are for hand made goods.

So get crafty this holiday.

Thank you for the shout out to all the wonderful emerging/independent designers there are. I couldn't agree more about items purchased from these designers being thoughtful!

Oi! Sorry it took so long to reply! I have really had my eyes opened to these independent and hard working artists in the last few years, and it seems the least I could do to try and get them just a little bit more recognition.

Thanks for commenting.
