Shop Handmade this Christmas...

Everyone knows about Etsy, but perhaps you haven't yet discovered MadeIt - proudly Australian 100% handmade. MadeIt is an online store, allowing you to buy unique, handmade goods from sellers 7 days a week, from the comfort of your own home. Creative and talented sellers are able to sell their goods both within Australia and internationally.

Much as I might like to pretend that Christmas is a long way off, I can't bury my head in the sand anymore. One of my family members announced the other day that all their Christmas shopping was done. And I haven't even made a list yet!!! Time to get started.

So, today I am showcasing some fabulous finds from MadeIt.

How organised are you with gift giving this year?
  • Mission accomplished - all gifts made or bought, perhaps even already wrapped
  • Well on the way - some gifts made or bought and following a prepared list
  • No need to rush - there's plenty of time left

Another of my family members does their Christmas shopping in an hour on Christmas Eve. Yep, I've timed them. They go prepared with a list and know exactly what they want to buy. Ha, ha... I couldn't handle the stress!!!
