Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!! Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful day and reflecting on what you are thankful for. We are spending the day with family (both Andy’s and mine are in the area which is super nice!). I thought I’d give you some more ideas for shopping local to read as you digest your Thanksgiving meals!!! Since I already told you about some of the wonderful brick and mortar local shops to help you cross names off your Christmas list . . . today I have some talented individuals that you can order products from in your pjs!!!
1. Jamazing! is a great gift for everyone!
I make jam all the time, but when we ran out of Adam’s Jamazing! Jam my kids were super disappointed and asked me if we had any of the “really good jam” left . . . I would have been hurt if they weren’t right. My favorite is the Spice Blueberry Muffin! The Raspberry Jalapeno and Jalapeno Peach Jams are great to have around for last minute parties. Just unwrap a block of cream cheese and dump the jam on it . . . serve it with crackers and done ~ an amazing appetizer that everyone will LOVE (the kiddos even like this!).
Adam makes getting his jams so easy you can shop online here and there is also a list of stores that carry his jams and gift packs. You can choose to have it shipped to you or arrange to pick it up. Make sure you like the official Jamazing! Facebook page to stay in the know! If you go to a show that he will be at you can sample his delicious jams!!! He will be at the Royal Christmas Boutique and Open House in New Prague on December 6th! You can also place an order by emailing Adam at email@example.com.
2. Get them sweet treats from Jess of Everyday O’Cake’sions
I am always in trouble when I go to a show and Jess is there . . . there is no doubt that it will end with me paying off the tab I create . . . but it is oooohhhhhhh soooooo worth it! Not only is her table covered with amazing cake pops, but there are also other fun treats like these reindeer hot chocolate mixes . . .
They make a great stocking stuffer! You can also get gift baskets and bundles. Last year I picked up the cutest basket for my Grandma and Grandpa for Christmas. Cake pops are fun to decorate gifts with also! They keep in the freezer . . . no promises that they will make it that far, but just in case . . . and they taste just as good right from the freezer!!! Everyday O’Cake’sions isn’t just for Holidays either, Jess makes AMAZING cakes for any occasion (birthdays, anniversary’s, weddings, promotions, smash cakes, Wednesdays . . . she does it all)!
Make sure you like Everyday O’Cake’sions on Facebook here to stay on top of what shows she has coming up and to place on order email Jess at firstname.lastname@example.org and enjoy something DELICIOUS this holiday season!
4. Country Girls Create has an array of fun glasses to brighten anyone’s Holiday Season!
My cousin, Kate, and I make up Country Girls Create. We started after making TONS of stuff for her wedding. Afterwards we decided to keep on creating and selling our creations at craft fairs along with Clothesline Chic. Wine glasses and coffee mugs are our specialty, but we also have hair bows, headbands, hair ties, and Kate makes jewelery. See something you like on our Facebook page? Message us and we can get it to you or we can also customize items to fit any personality or style!
5. Clothesline Chic is always a great choice for gift giving!
I have been super busy this year with custom orders, which is always fun, but I LOVE the holiday season when I get to go to craft fairs. I love to see everyone and hear what you like and want to see me create. For the Holiday Season you can buy both Country Girls Create and Clothesline Chic items at Generation Home and Building Center in Lonsdale, MN in their gift shop.
Here is a sampling of what I’ve been up to lately . . .
