Sharing and Caring

Happy Sunday.  Hope your weekend has been fabulous.

I wish I had one of these for each of you that entered the giveaway.  Only one and the name I drew is Cathy Thompson.
Cathy this sweet bag is on it's way to you.
Happy Black Friday Shopping!!!!
While I am on a roll here with Sharing.  I wanted to give a little shout out to a couple of sweet bloggers and Etsy crafters and this sweet share bowl for a good cause.  This sweet angel is from Pattie at TatteredTreasures1 on Etsy.

I love that Pattie uses old vintage lace and material for her angels.  This angel of mine has a sweet halo made out of vintage pearl buttons.   


Another beautiful angel creator on Etsy is Linda from Eastern Ave Designs.  I got this sweet angel from her recently for gift giving.

Sweet Jemma from At Home With Jemma  does a great blog post each week on Etsy Talent for your Christmas Shopping.  I found Linda through Jemma.  So if you want to see some other very talented crafters for gift giving this year go to Jemma's posts Here and Here.






Also this share bowl I got at my girlfriend charity party last year.  For very bowl purchased from Pampered Chef a donation was made to feed someone in need.  I love to find gifts that are sweet and useful and give back to someone in need.  A gift that keeps on giving!!!!

While you are starting to make your gift lists think about small business people on Etsy and also organizations that have unique gifts where the proceeds help others in need.  Along with companies like Pampered Chef there are also many great people on Etsy that make handcrafted items that give back.  Your gift that you give to  someone dear will also help someone in need.  That is what it is all about.  Sharing and Caring.

Enjoy the beginning of the new week.  We are in the beginning of the slide on down to the holidays!


Congrats Cathy.
Enjoy your Black Friday Shopping with this sweet tote.

Hugs,
Kris

  10. Congrats to Cathy. I am sure she will love it.
    I think you need to tell us more about how the charity thing works that you do with your girlfriends ever year. Do they bring gifts that then go to the charity of their choice? I love that you do that party every year. I think the best part is that you all wear pjs! lol xo Diana

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your sweet little angels! xo Diana

  12. today I was vacuuming out my car trunk (chicken feed and corn got spilled) and took out the bag I won from you a long time ago. It was a junking bag....everything you could need when you go to the flea markets....tie downs, plastic bags, sewing kit, tissues, flashlight, bungee cords,.....just about anything you could need. What a wonderful give-away! Miss the good ol' days of blogging. xoxoxoxoxo

  13. Hi Kris I love your angels for Christmas. I have many scattered around our home and it gives a sense of beauty and grace to have them out to grace ones home. Is angels going to be your theme this Christmas? If so it will be totally amazing. Nice shout out to etsy stores, I shop them all the time and enjoy the interaction between small business and creative ideas. Looking forward to all the Christmas beauty you will decorate your home with. Congrats to Cathy for winning your fun giveaway.
    xoxo,
    Vera

  15. I love your suggestion to do gift shopping on Etsy to support handmade makers. Great idea! I love Pampered Chef and use their clay pans and roasters almost daily. Will
    Be checking their catalogue too for a way to give back. Thank you for your timely and inspirational post, Kris! xo

  20. I love that you are pushing "shop small". There are so many people who create fabulous one of a kind items and by helping them we are helping families.

  21. The angels are so pretty. It's nice having one of a kind hand-made items in your home rather than mass-produced junk from China. Although lots of my Christmas decor is mass-produced junk from China. :/

  22. I love the little angel! I definitely plan to shop on Etsy for many of my Christmas gifts this year. My daughter has done this for years and the gifts she buys are so unique and special.
