When shopping this holiday season there’s nothing better than scooping up items that are handmade, vintage or sustainable. Not only does it mean you’re supporting a smaller business, you’re also promoting a greener economy.

With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites off Etsy. Here’s my own whimsical wishlist:

Glitter and Gold: Design Inspiration

Oh – the holidays. Tis the season for lights to go up, leaves to come down and for us to be jovial and filled with cheer! One of my favorite things to do this time of year is walk through my neighborhood gazing up at all the elegantly dressed homes, twinkling with warm white lights, casting a cozy mood onto entire blocks at a time.

The soft luminescence of the season made me think about my favorite obsessions of late: gold and glitter. Caitlin and I used these two elements in our Renegade set-up, and the final results aesthetic lingers in my creative abyss. How can I incorporate this warm hue and sparkling touches into my designs? I haven’t figured it out quite yet – but did curate a collection of items off Etsy and Pinterest that grabbed my attention.

Enjoy!

Tis’ the season for shopping, eating and looking at sparkly things. Many of us become caught up in the fast paced rush of the holidays, that we forget that it’s a time to focus on joy, peace and love. The greatest love of all is that which manifested in Jesus’s birth – which is indeed the reason for the season. But how can we, with all the distractions and chaos, re-focus on making it a time of substance? Read the rest of this entry »
