This Holiday: Buy Local, Be Creative

Just a reminder to be creative when doing your holiday shopping. Before you buy the latest toy or clothing item, consider alternatives. Visit my gift giving page at Café à la Green: Gift Ideas.

Just yesterday I ordered three beaded necklaces from my friend who does really beautiful work with genuine stones and gems. She is low income, on SSI, and has a lot of health problems. She just recently got back into beading after a very long time of battling some health issues which have been stabilized. She is so happy to be beading again and it is a joy to see her doing something she has always loved doing.

So it thrills me to be able to support her and give gifts to my loved ones of fine, beautiful, local, hand-crafted art.
