A few days ago a wrote a blog titled Christmas 2011 -- Birth Of A New Tradition about how we should try to make Christmas presents become more than buying a bunch of mass-produced junk made overseas. Much of what was written focused on using locally obtained services as thoughtful gifts.
But, children (and adults!) like finding presents under the Christmas tree. I wrote in Christmas 2011... "OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes."
Then, my friend asked me to "friend" her enterprise, Zephyr Art, on Facebook. Wow! I was blown away by the neat stuff on her site and in her Etsy shop! I love it and just couldn't help passing on the information about her very adorable and very unique handmade dolls, one of a kind doll-making kits, fun and funky earrings, lively watercolor prints, and more! They're handcrafted, artistic, and distinctive gifts - and they're made in the USA (with free shipping in the USA).
