handmade holidays


These handmade events are getting pretty smart. They’re like, “All of this stuff is cool, but there are a lot of people on the fence… Maybe if we serve alcohol they’ll buy all of the things!” Sneaky, sneaky!

I don’t need a cocktail to help me shop at a handmade event. Especially when helping my friend Lisa of Feto SoapĀ for a couple weekends…and testing out her products. šŸ™‚ After eyeballing quite a few items, I finally caved in at Pop Shop last weekend.


Replace that cocktail with a bath bomb. šŸ˜‰


After standing all day at WHAM [Winter Holiday Art Market], I purchased a few of Lisa’s bath bombs. I needed to know what all the fuss was about. šŸ™‚ The following morning I was already feeling pretty haggard, but Ā needed to take care of a couple precious pups. It was a pretty activeĀ weekend and I was feeling it all over. The timing was perfect to try out my firstĀ bath bomb. What a relaxing experience! My skin felt so soft, smelled so good – trust me I’m not being paid to say these things! Just completely obsessed.



Other purchases included gifts for friends and family, and maybe a couple things for me. šŸ™‚

  • Couple holiday ornaments from a friend/former league-mate of mine at Mixed Hues.
  • Handmade notebook from Shop Witty – an online friend I finally met in person!
  • Pins from Nicky Davis.Ā Daniel picked up the Werewolf pin after he saw mine!
  • More bath and lotion items from Feto Soap – including thisĀ amazing beard oil. Oakmoss sandalwood smells insanely good. Am I a weirdo for sniffing Daniel’s beard??


I had to use all of my will power not to purchase one of her Doctor Who ornaments!!


I love watching her snapchats when they make the paper.

The most addicting scent…


Daniel and I had a pleasant morning atĀ Pop Shop. Sometimes I miss doing shows, but helping Lisa reminded meĀ of how exhausting can be.Ā Makers pour their hearts and souls into their work –Ā so much more love and care,Ā whichĀ usually means higher quality!Ā I love supporting small businesses, but perhapsĀ I will continue to do so online whereĀ I can practice a bit more self control…ha!

What are your favorite handmade shops?? Please share! I’m still doing some holiday shopping. šŸ™‚
