WOW Wednesday Gifts

Welcome to WOW Wednesday!

The day before Thanksgiving; time to spend with loved ones and give thanks for making it through another year. I know I'm thankful for the many blessings we've had along the way.

The day after Thanksgiving also starts off the very hectic shopping season with Black Friday in the brick and mortar shops and Cyber Monday on-line.

Why not do yourself a favor this year and save yourself the hassle of dealing with the crowds and take a peek at the talented artists on-line. Your gift will most certainly be prepared with care, and will be much more unique than the mass produced items you'll find in the mall.

First on the list is this charming hand blown Glass Angel from AJ Jewelry Designs.
Each little angel is a one of a kind piece of art.
I love the way her skirt flows out around her. Lovely!

Glowing Sun Goddess Earrings by Girl Loves Glitter.
The stones are a beautiful clear white topaz. The gold you see is actual 23k yellow gold set under the stones. Gives it such a luminous effect. Definitely a keeper!

For the bath/ spa lover, you can't go wrong with these incredibly unique Amethyst Soaps by AmethystSoap.
When I first saw these I thought "what a lovely piece of amethyst!" I was blown away when I realized they were soaps. Certain to make your giftie smile.

For the book lover, here's a cute little Book Ornament by Pease Blossom Studio.
There are actual pages in this book ornament that would be perfect for writing a special note to your special someone.

Shop handmade this year; you'll be glad you did. You can also feel good knowing that you've supported a handmade artist.

Thanks for stopping by.

WOW Wednesday/ Thursday.

Wow! I'm a day late... I guess WOW Wednesday became WOW Thursday for this week only.

I blame it on my inability to make a holiday header for my ArtistiKat and ArtFire shops that I'm satisfied with. I keep tweaking and tweaking but just haven't gotten "it" yet.

Speaking of holidays, the Christmas holidays are almost upon us. I know I'm not prepared; how about you?
Thought it might be helpful for the next few Wednesdays to focus on some gift ideas.

Its a safe bet that buying handmade will WOW that special someone on your list since it was made with care and attention and you certainly won't see it in bulk at the department stores.

So, here we go:

Silver Pearl definitely gets WOW points for her unique design. I have been drooling over these ever since she listed them. So clever, and definitely unique. She's got them in other gemstones as well.

For the owl lover, the most adorable little Santa Baby Owlet by WoolCrazy. Who could resist that sweet face? I love to scope out her shop, every little owl seems to have its own personality.

Just had to stop and look when I saw this tree by Gary "Wiz" Burns. Perfect for the tree lover, art lover, or anyone who likes a unique piece of craftsmanship.

Love this bowl by Makye77! So awesomely striking; it caught my eye in an instant. It's a safe bet that it will do the same for your giftie (is that a word?).

Hope you like this week's WOWs.
To snag these lovelies, just click on any of the photos to take you right to their shop.

Remember, if you see something that you think is a Wow, or would love to see your item here, just let me know.

Have fun!
