I love this time of year. I love browsing only stores and finding new products that are out. I love daydreaming and seeing things and thinking “wow ______ would just love that!” Small businesses are typically my go to and they usually launch new products every year around this time just in time for the holiday season and gift giving. Today I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite finds.
I’ve told you before how much I love Red Letter Paper Company‘s cards before and while doing a little shopping and browsing this last week I combed through all of her Christmas cards. I had seen her Twitter Dove cards before but oh my goodness, I actually took time to read them and I think they are just the most creative. Your great grandma might not quite get the humor but anyone that knows even a tiny bit about twitter and meaning of Christmas is bound to get a laugh out of them. If you need holiday cards seriously check her out she’s also running 15% off until Dec 12 with ALISTHOLIDAY14 Check this one out:
If I hadn’t just bought my dogs new collars, I would be scooping up a collar for each of them. I’ve never seen any quality dog collars from an indie shop before and Sewing Wild Roses just came out with some last month and it’s causing serious restraint not to snatch at least one up. She’s offering 20% with ALISTHOLIDAY14.
With the holidays I’m constantly in the kitchen – even more than usual – with in town guests and holiday goodies needing baked. A and Ryan both have aprons that I made them last year but this mama has got nothing and I’m the one who is usually in the kitchen the most. Zeeuh has some awesome aprons that are just darling – this one is super festive and cute. Perfect for holiday hosting. Not to mention she’s offering a rocking deal for 20% and Free US Shipping with ALISTHOLIDAY2014
Ok this one isn’t festive or the holidays but it’s pure genius. I don’t know about you but when I’m out and about I need somewhere to put my purse if I’m at a smaller table and don’t have a booth to toss my stuff into. Mystic Eye Creations is a shop I already adore – they use a lathe to create everything which takes so much time and talent – I have a huge admiration for their work and one of A’s favorite things is their wooden tops but this guys, is so cool a purse hanger! Yeah, you can clip it to your purse and when you need to use it all you do is unhook, set on the table and your purse dangles under. See it in use on the listing and when you fall in love with this bit of genius snatch one up for 25% off with ALISTHOLIDAY14.
Recently one of my closest friends started selling Jamberry Nails. Now, I’ll tell you the idea of sticking “stickers” to my nails was hardly something that sounded appealing and the idea of getting my toddler to sit there and say “sure mama!” was not something I was sure was going to happen. Although she loves having her nails done. So when my friends started selling the nails she sent me some toddler size nails and standard nails. After trying them out on A and having NO dry time it ended up so much faster and oddly enough – they legitimately stayed on her nails for 2 weeks and had her nails not grown so quickly I probably could have kept them on even longer. I’m not even kidding. I’m sold. I’ll be honest and tell you though that I am cheap and use only a couple nails at a time so they last a long time – like a little accent nail!
