December 2013

Well, here we come to the conclusion of yet another wonderful year. As we hustle and bustle around town getting last-minute gifts, may we remember the greatest gift we have been given. This Christmas I purchased a hand-crafted sign that reads “He Shall Be Called Wonderful”, every time I pass by it and read it, I marvel at how wonderful life can be because of Him. May His light and love fill your heart this Holiday Season.

Now it’s the perfect time of the year to make some woollies for your wee folk! Looking for meaningful gifts is exhausting…I’ve spent the last couple of weeks on Pinterest and searching the net for “meaningful” Christmas gifts. But what is a meaningful gift? I crossed off my list as many plastic toys as I can, it’s nearly impossible, another strike goes for video games and movies, and last I strike out gift cards.

Every year I seem to do the same thing, I finally end up giving up and rushing to the stores to buy something, anything, just to have something for those on my list. I think this year I’ve done better, most of my shopping I did online, at local craft boutiques, and I’m making some myself! I’ve gone for handmade wood toys, science experiment kits, craft kits, beginner sewing machines for two of my granddaughters, and of course, I’m handcrafting a few little hats for my wee grand-babies.

After all, I’m trying to remember that Christmas is about Christ giving us the greatest gift of all, redemption, and who doesn’t need that? I hope you will find a way to make your Christmas meaningful, whatever, that means for you, and perhaps, our pattern books will help you craft a meaningful gift for the wee folk in your life!

All those who know me, know that I will always choose to purchase from a company that has a mission; I’m also a big time buy local advocate, I support my neighborhood mom and pop stores and farmer’s markets too. Buying with a purpose is a big deal to me. I will make the effort to search and find companies that sell products and use part of the proceeds to help those less fortunate.

This year, I have my own list of companies that I have personally purchased items from to support their causes. I hope you will enjoy browsing their websites, and perhaps, you too will find something meaningful to buy and at the same time give to someone in need…and please do share this info with your friends and family!

My  top “buy with a purpose” products:
Figs: threads for threads, this year they are making scrubs and donating them too.
Roma: boots for you and for all, I love these!
Nena & Co: beautiful bags that help give the gift of water and more.
LifeSaver: water systems, buy one for your own emergency preparedness and donate one to a family in need.
TOMS: one for one shoes, I buy them and gift them too.
Waka Waka: share the sun, solar charger, I gave these as gifts last Christmas.

I would love to hear which ones are your favorite companies to buy with a purpose, I’ll be happy to post them.

And of course, we are having a sale this weekend, for the first time ever, we are offering an additional 15% off clearance items! Yes, we have a bunch of new patterns lined up to welcome 2014! Go ahead, stock up for gifts, donations, and for your own babies. Enjoy!
