{this season, SHOP the Holiday Gift Guide [now live!]}

the holidays are almost here {hooray!}, and soon it’ll be time to start making your lists…

think of all you’ve accomplished since last year at this time ~ maybe your family has grown {ours has, with a puppy!}, maybe you faced a fear or accomplished a dream? maybe you set a fun/silly goal, and completed it? ;] whatever you’ve accomplished, i hope you’ll take some time to celebrate those moments with those dear to you, regardless of how big or small they are.

speaking of CELEBRATING ~ perhaps you need to give a gift? or maybe you and your girlfriends swap gifts each Christmas? don’t fret, the 2011 Holiday Gift Guide was made to help you with just that.

the Holiday Gift Guide {HGG} features over 30 FABULOUS vendors, offering one-of-a-kind decor ideas and pretties. click the button below and you’ll find dozens of vendors, organized by shop category: home decor & accessories; clothing, bags & accessories; jewelry; creative gifts; and baked yummies.

the HGG will be live from October 15th – December 14th, and throughout that time you can shop it by clicking on the button above, which is hosted in my right sidebar, OR you can click on {the holiday gift guide} link in my navigation bar. i’m so excited about this year’s guide ~ each shop offers something unique from the next, and nearly EVERYTHING is handmade — YEOW!

throughout the next 60 days i’ll also be sharing product links from the participating shops via twitter & facebook {don’t miss out // make sure you follow along}, PLUS i’ll be spotlighting every shop right here on my blog through a series of mini posts. it’s going to be so much fun!

gift guides are also a fabulous way to meet other handmade vendors. so don’t be shy — if you see something you like, say hello to the artisan with a quick email! personally, that’s one of my favorite things to do ;]

PS. there are a few new {inspiration} sponsors in my sidebar ~ take a peek around? their support allows me to do what i love for a living, which is a dream!

    I have an obscene amount of shopping to do this year, with two little ones and tons of family. I think it will be a homemade celebration!
