I Took The Handmade Pledge! BuyHandmade.org

As you can see (if you can read...) I took the handmade pledge! This holiday season I will only be giving handmade gifts. I started doing this a couple years ago and it is always a big hit. I think it's great that other people think so too. Although the main reason I make my gifts is because I love to be crafty (and frugal), my ulterior motive is to stick it to the man. And when I say man, I mean Walmart. I hate Walmart (and other similar, mass-producing, sweat-shop-in-China stores). Not only are handmade gifts way cooler than all that other store-bought stuff, they are also better for the environment. (Seriously! Read more here.) So let's join forces this holiday season and stick it to the man!

On a side note: I went to Etsy.com in order to find out more info on this extremely cool website, which basically hosts a place for sassy crafters such as myself to sell their wonderful creations. I hope to have my arts up for viewing (and buying!) very soon. In the meantime you should check out everyone else's creative juices.
