i’m generally not one to get into the holidays too soon – probably a reaction to too many years spent in the retail industry. but the bottom line is that a handmade holiday takes a bit more time to prepare. there are supplies to buy for your own craft projects, there are gifts to be made, and gifts to be bought from artists & crafters who need time to make & ship your gifts. the better prepared you are, the more joy your handmade holiday will bring!

so i’m starting now and i hope you don’t mind coming along for the ride!

i’ll be sharing more handmade holiday inspiration over the coming weeks. if you’re interested in sharing a promotion with scoutie girl readers to kick off your holiday selling season, please post in the comments below with your discount, link to your shop, and an end date. clearly mark it “handmade holiday.” i’ll also be hosting several giveaways and have a couple more spots open. if you’re interest, email [email protected]

finally, if you’re interested in guest posting here to share your handmade holiday memories or traditions, email me!

and as always, this is free for all friday! if you have a promotion, new product or project, blog posts, or just fun things to share – leave a comment here!

see ya monday!
