Confession: I'm guilty of buying most of the items for myself because I knew I would appreciate them + if I gifted them I don't know that they would be as appreciated.
Recently, she was on the Shark Tank + she got a deal with Barbara. I was so happy for her + to celebrate I bought the scarf + boot socks. All 3 of the items are to the highest quality + they are oh so soft + cozy + warm but not thick + bulky.
I have this exact print hanging in my kitchen + I love it. It is on great stock paper + compliments my walls nicely. Pen + Paint also has canvas paintings too. I'm sure that will be purchased in 2014. I have to pace myself!
Their products are fabulous! Gnarly Whale products are made with minimal ingredients + all vegan + smell of the tropics, I was so excited when mine arrived. She even tossed in extra products for me too! That's a perk of working with small businesses!
The Lizzy Zip Up is a fabulous but not your normal hoodie! It has an off centered zipper which makes it unique + the fabric is heaven. I have fallen head over heels for this zip up.
My favorite thing about getting my handmade item in the mail is seeing the packaging + handwritten notes + extra freebies that they toss in! Each one of these items were packaged with style + their brand.
I am looking forward to supporting handmade in 2014!
