Etsy for Christmas
WAY back in September that I wanted to make my Christmas a bit more about supporting independent type businesses. For me this meant Etsy. And, I did it! I bought journals, for example, from Iliana. Everyone that reads my blog... Iliana ROCKS! I ordered the journals and then she handled everything from there. The above picture is because I never actually saw them... You see, shipping costs are kind of depressing in Canada. As a result, Iliana handled the shipping instead of me having them shipped to me and then me shipping them out again. I was worried it would seem a bit impersonal, but if I added shipping costs to my budget it might be problematic. But, guys, it was not impersonal AT ALL! Iliana wrapped them and included cards. Also, each one had a bookmark. If I wasn't posting this now; the people that received them might not even know I just, well, paid for them... So, if you ever want to support someone awesome for whatever holiday that comes your way - please visit her shop. I was very happy with everything overall and everyone loved their journals (I even bought one for myself).
