Oh, Sweet Joy’s Handmade Holidays Gift Guide 2012: Accessorize

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!

Accessorizing an outfit can definitely be the finishing touch. Sometimes I tend to over-accessorize, but in all reality, I’d love to have a little extra detail that makes an outfit memorable rather than getting to my destination realizing…this outfit is B-to the-ORING. Today’s shops will help you avoid the latter. From impeccably sewn handbags & gorgeously color-blocked clutches to cozy cowls & fabulous headbands, today’s category is definitely for those who want to step their outfit up a notch 😉

JustLovelyThings started as a hobby for Photographer & Hairstylist Heather Smith in an effort to create hair accessories for her own clients.  With almost overnight success she quit her day two jobs to focus on this full time.  Some of the pretties that are still handmade in her studio in Oregon have ended up in magazine print, tv shows and on celebrities.  However, she still loves making them for her loyal and encouraging customers that helped her start it all!

I started Better Life Bags three years ago, but never meant for it to get so big!  I just wanted to make a diaper bag for myself as I welcomed my first little boy into the world.  After showing the bag off on Facebook to my friends, the business took off and never stopped.You can read our mission and see the full story {written by my hubby} here.

I learned sewing & crafting from both of my grandmothers when I was young, and that really boosted my love of creating. Petunia Blooms is my place for sharing the pretty things I make! I think it’s important to create & choose joy every single day, and I hope my products help share that enjoyment.

Eclectic Joy is an etsy shop that sells baby onesies, stitched notecard sets,  but my favorite product she sells are her infinity scarves! I have one and it’s perfectly cozy, as well as fashionable. Cory has a great eye for textiles and I love to see what fabrics she picks when she makes new scarves!
