More and more people are craving a handmade holiday season, from stockings to gifts. I understand the feeling of wanting to be surrounded by one-of-a-kind pieces that are unique and beautiful.
I start every holiday season with the craftiest of intentions.But every November, it hits me. I'm mere weeks away from Christmas and I haven't even begun. Which is when I find myself turning to Etsy for a little help.
Want something hanging from you chimney with care that you can be sure is unique to your own family? Then check out these custom stockings which go way beyond monograms.
Here are some things we've liked reading around the web this week. We hope you will too.
In our family, Christmas stockings have always been a really important aspect of our family tradition. So I really love seeking out terrific Christmas stockings for our readers that their families will truly love.
Considering I grew up with a gorgeous handmade felt stocking given to me by my godmother, it's not in me to settle for some $18.99 mass-produced one for my own kids. And so I've searched high and low to find the perfect Christmas stockings this year.
Every year, just before Christmas the stocking debate ensues at my parents' house: "Whose is the reindeers?" "No wait, mine is the snowflakes." "Hey, his holds more than mine!"
Who says that stockings have to be hand crocheted by grandmas with a penchant for pom-poms and unnatural color combinations? Apparently not the folks at Crafty Robot, who have come up with the best alterna-stockings I've ever seen.
