Christmas is HOW many days away?

55 days. WOW! I got to thinking about it this morning, about decorating the tree and the house, baking Christmas goodies, wrapping presents.... maybe what sparked it is the fact that it was 40 degrees outside this morning when I woke up! Brrrr! That is pretty cold for Arizona.

So, to get in the holiday spirit, I'm posting a "gift buying guide"...items I've found on Etsy that caught my eye. Check theses shops out, you might find something for that hard to buy for person on your list...

Custom painted pet ornaments by MaryRichmondDesign . (I was thinking of getting these of ALL the animals, but that might keep Mary busy until after the New Year!)
These soap "truffles" by BellaDonna10 look good enough to eat!
How about an earth friendly re-usable coffee cozy from AlytheRed? Gotta love the bunny design!These little horse finger puppets from CherylASmith would make great kids' stocking stuffers. She also has lots of other animal puppets in her shop.Etsy has a very diverse selection of original, handmade gifts. So much better than buying from some big corporate giant! I plan to support talented independent artists this year by buying handmade as much as possible. Happy Holidays!
