GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED - Congrats to ja_cs_ on Instagram!!!

It's November!!! I know, Halloween has just finished. It's a little early to think about the next holiday season and to get you in the mood, I have partnered with my favourite handmade site, Etsy, to give away $100 gift certificate to spend on whatever you like on their site! Yipee!!! Head over to my Instagram, like, follow and leave me a comment here or there telling me what you'd buy if you win and you will be entered for the gift certificate.

I'm sure you already know it, but in case you don't, Etsy is an online marketplace for the hand crafted and vintage. It is a site that I get lost in regularly searching for amazing handmade things that creative people make all over the world. If this sounds like your kind of thing, read on.

I always hope that by getting gifts ready and wrapped early, it will allow the chance to fully enjoy the festive time with all the events December brings (Christmas train, lights shows, family events, etc.!!!). A year ago I shared my favourite garlands for kids rooms from the same site and I hope you love this selection as much as you loved that one!
