Oh, Sweet Joy's Handmade Holidays Gift Guide 2012: Needle & Thread

Hello everyone! It's finally here! Welcome to the Handmade Holidays Gift Guide, a week long guide to handmade gifts for everyone in your family! There will be a post each day with a different category for you to shop. I will highlight numerous shops and you will be rewarded with a limited time discount code for each one! It's a win-win situation here, people! Hardworking entrepreneurs will get some wonderful exposure and you will get your Christmas shopping done early. Black Friday, Schmlack Friday! There will also be a ginormous giveaway at the end, so stay tuned. YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS IT!

Sewing is a long lost art, in my opinion, that is certainly making a comeback. Today's featured artists have mastered the skill and do so effortlessly. So if you're scared of that sewing machine, leave it to these handmade pros who will gladly take that task off your hands!




 Jenni20 Designs specializes in making travel functional as well as fabulous.
