Mellow Weekend

I'm enjoying a mellow weekend of Christmas carols and TV watching. I went out yesterday afternoon to buy a Christmas gift and another one that I'd ordered online arrived in the mail, so now I have two gifts to give. I've been spending oodles of time at Etsy checking out all the homemade and vintage items. It makes me feel a lot less like caving into the mad consumerism, but some of the people I have to buy for aren't exactly etsy-people.

If any of you are Etsy shoppers and would like to recommend certain sellers, I'd love to browse for ideas...

I wish I had supplies to bake some cookies, but I have no intention of going outside in this snow. Assuming I could even get out of the driveway....

I will be eager to follow your readers Etsy tips, as well. Every time I go there just to browse I get utterly overwhelmed.

Yea for Etsy! It IS overwhelming; I wish it was organized differently, somehow ... Wish I could help on the sellers but I've only bought from a few and haven't received the gifts yet, so I shouldn't recommend them yet either.

I had never explored this site, but now I am headed over to do some browsing. Thanks for the link.

I like some handmade jewelry!

I like the idea of Etsy.

I think what I do with my hand made cards etc fits into the theme but there doesn't really seem to be a place for me.

Cookies are good. I made some.

The second item I ordered from Etsy arrived in yesterday's mail. I am pleased with it, so that's two thumbs up so far!

I loved my Etsy gift--LOVE it.
