The Handmade Pledge

So its coming up to christmas (only a month to go!!!!), and perhaps a little later than normal this year, I am starting to think presents. What I cant make myself I have decided where possible to buy handmade. There's such great sites such as Folksy, Etsy, Misi, to name but a few...that its not difficult to buy something different and a little more special. So I took the handmade pledge... why not check it out.

I Took The Handmade Pledge!
