A few days ago I got a package in the mail. !!! My ghostie arrived. Isn't it so cute?! I have been admiring Skunkboy Creatures for a while now, and I am so happy I decided to buy one! The ghost looks even cuter in person. I'm always so pleased with my Etsy purchases. I feel so good supporting independent artists. I don't remember where I saw this goal, but somewhere out there in the blogging world I saw that someone had a goal to support handmade buy buying at least one item per month. I think that is such an awesome idea. Most of us can afford to buy ourselves a little something every month (think about all the Starbucks!), ....why not buy that yummy fall scented candle from Etsy instead of Target?! Christmas is coming up too. Personally, I am making all of my Christmas gifts, but I would much rather buy something handmade with love than some mass produced crap at the mall. I am so excited to stay at home and make my gifts!! I will save tons of cash, and feel good about what I am giving. I will be at home snuggly in my pajamas instead of buzzing around all those swarms of angry holiday shoppers. It stresses me out even thinking about holiday shopping. In fact, I may have to stock up on baking and food staples so that I don't have to go out to the grocery store as much in December. Crowds give me such anxiety. Well, now that I have Christmas on the brain, I'm off to look up recipes for bath goods. Happy Haunting, and Happy Shopping everyone!
