Sorry I have been absent for the past week! We took a little mid week break, and went to Banff for a few days to visit one of our daughters, and to partake in a little R and R. As of Monday, everything returns to the normal routine, the husband goes back to work, and my son, much to his dismay returns to school after the Christmas break. As the holiday break comes to a close, I wanted to share with you, some of the amazing handmade goodies that I purchased for gifts before Christmas. This past Christmas, I set out to buy handmade as much as possible, and I had great results with all of these gorgeous items, from some extremely talented and creative individuals!
From Rockitbot, I bought this cool all in one iPod/iPhone Nerd Herder wallet for my son.
Several people received these fabulous handmade french inspired soaps from DancingMooney, located in Oregon. I kept one for myself, and this is honestly some of the nicest soap I have ever used!
One of my daughters was the lucky recipient of this deluxe camera strap from Phatstraps , for her DSLR camera.
The same daughter also received these cool fingerless gloves, from BonzieDesigns, also located in Ireland.
Seriously, some of the best tea I have ever tasted came from Wildroot, in Bellingham, Washington, where the ingredients for this awesome tea are organic, locally grown, ethically wildcrafted and fair trade certified. I bought 5 different flavors, and gave 4 away to the kids, and once again, I kept one of these for moi!
My husband was totally spoiled, with this beautifully handcrafted leather messenger bag, from RusticLeather located in Texas. As you see...I managed to get in on a sale price during Black Friday!
Daughter number 3, got a turquoise Sassy Scarf created by
