You're makin' a list, and checkin' it...twice?

Greetings! Gee, no postings since April, huh? Well, if your year has been anything like mine, it has flown by and once again we find ourselves face to face with that time of year - the really, really busy one!

To help you out during this busy time, here are some great gift ideas compiled by Margo, and featuring handmade treasures by our local artisan members:

- watch with coloured chainmaille band

- cream mohair snood with matching infinity scarf

- monster finger puppets

- large hot chocolate/tea mugs

- sterling silver cuff links

- Kooljammer lunch carriers

- hemp chokers for boys

- abstract stained glass window panel

- felted kitty playballs and doggy tug toys

- tea cozy and runner set

- camouflage pencil cases and carry bags for “stuff”

- baby mats and hair barrettes

- super long necklaces

- felted mitts (a cold winter is forecasted!)

- soapstone spirit carving of a loon

- handblown glass wine bottle toppers (add the wine!)

- maple fruit bowl

- beach glass jewellery

- Circuit Kitty cyber clock

- letter opener

- holiday earrings (trees, labs with Santa caps, penguins, )

- original Christmas ornaments ( stained glass, felted, glass, wood, Fimo, knit)

- original greeting cards (frameable, and great for money gifts!)

Don't forget to pick up a "little something" for the teacher, the sitter, your Mom 2 Mom group, paper delivery person, hairdresser, the kid's coach, your nice neighbour who sometimes shovels your sidewalk...

And you don't want to arrive at that house party empty-handed - pair a fresh wheel of Brie with a beautiful handcrafted pottery Brie baker from Textures!
