Shopping Small Business This Christmas -
1. Stay Home Club - You guys, I am so in love with all of Olivia's beautiful creations! She totally gets me and my love of not leaving the house and kitties!
2. Color Theory Shop - I can't praise Lisa enough. not only are her enamel pins fantastic, but she is one of the sweetest people ever!
3. Brighter Side Design - I'm 99.9% sure Kelsi read my mind when she created coloring stationary. It is such an amazing mash up!
4. Creature Type Pins Coloring Book - Michelle is so ridiculously talented, I actually commissioned her to make an illustration for my little family a couple years ago and she knocked it out of the park! Her new coloring book and pins are just as freaking amazing!
5. Blank Bear - Erin is another super talented illustrator who recently started making stationary and I love every single card!
6. Danielle Green - Umm I'm pretty sure you can never go wrong with a cat David Bowie glitter pin. And that yarn sheep illustration, yes!
7. Hello Miss May - These enamel pins are just everything! Too freaking cute!

One of my favorite things about Christmas is trying to find unique gifts for my friends and family, and I have always had great luck with shopping small businesses. So, I thought I would share some of my favorite small business in today's posts. Each of these amazing makers has come up with truly wonderful and unique items that are sure to put a smile on a recipient's faces. To be totally honest with you guys sometimes I have a hard time giving up the gifts, haha.

What are some of your favorite small businesses? Share in the comments below, I always love finding new shops!

Friday Fancies (on a Sunday)

Posts I'm LovingThis letter from Leslie Knope is giving me life right now // Walnut the whippet takes his final trip to the beach with hundreds of his friends  // Owl riding a toy pony will make you believe again // Jennifer wrote a post, and it's exactly how I feel right now // Tis the season for ALL THE COOKIES

Get In My Closet/House Please : I love the look of this jacket // This kid's cat shirt, I want // I don't know when I would ever wear this hat, but I love // The shirt dress will always be my jam // This dress // This jacket color is my everything // Bunny sweats why you not for adults?! // Fun coffee mug // This calendar would be perfect in my office

We got back from our annual Dallas Thanksgiving on Tuesday and while we had an absolute blast with family, I'm very happy to be home, even though our furnace died on us and the house is pretty cold. It's crazy when we left the temperatures were still in the 80's and high 60's at night, but now highs were in the low 60's and in the low 40's at night! At least it makes it feel a lot more like the Holiday season and now I don't have to crank down the AC to drink my hot cocoa, haha.

How was everyone's Thanksgiving? Can you guys believe we are already in December? What do you guys have planned for this Holiday season?
