sponsor highlight + giveaway ((featuring indie lovely))





I started blogging in 2007, and after I reopened my Etsy shop in 2009, it evolved into thehandmadegiftguide.com where I have blogged for 4 years about ...wait for it.... handmade gifts! I also adore vintage & independent designers and shops, so I started a new blog, Indie Lovely, to host my interactive digital magazine of the same name. I feature seasonal make and takes, project ideas & tutorials, indie shopping, blogs/shops/sites I love, my cool & crafty friends, and snippets from the amazing Detroit craft scene. I am a graphic designer and business consultant, so the blogs and magazine are a fun way for me to share my addiction to photoshop + handmade + indie shopping all at once.

My current loves :: gluten & dairy free cupcakes, photography, making art, crochet, my family, thrift store shopping, vintage, pyrex, anything golden orange, smashbooking, tea, yarn, Detroit, nature, embroidery, upcycling, craft shows, instagram.

  1. I'm not sure if it counts as handmade since it's prints but I LOVE Naptime Diaries shop (http://www.naptimediariesshop.com) AND I'm working to convince a friend to start a shop so as soon as that's live, it'll be my favourite and I'll be sure to share it with the world.
