Holiday Season Approaching

This year I have taken the "Handmade Pledge". I pledge to give only handmade gifts this year... possibly with one small exception. My daughter has been hoping for an American Girl Doll... If you have not yet discovered Etsy, please take a trip to and think about supporting these crafters/artists when gathering gifts to give this season. There are also a number of great craft sales coming up where you can find a great gift for the person who has everything. I was just at the Hood River Saturday Market Holdiday sale and found some great handmade wooden cooking utensils and cutting boards. You never know what you will find from all of the creative people around.

Here are a couple of sales I will be at this winter.
