Give Handmade This Year
One of the silver linings of the bad-economy-storm-cloud has been a resurgence of handmade gift giving. People have more time to spend than money, so they are actually putting thought into meaningful gifts rather than simply spending a large amount of cash on "something."
Personally, I've always preferred gifts that required more thought than cash. Then again, I'm a cat. I'd rather sleep in a cardboard box than a $100 pink leopard print bed, so I don't know how much weight my opinion carries there.
So, y'know, if you're giving gifts this season, drop by a local indie/handmade show (there are TONS OF THEM this weekend) or browse through Etsy and Artfire, and give something handmade.
Oh, and if you're looking for the perfect FREE downloadable gift tags, this kitty has got your back.
