As promised, here's a round-up of some of the very cool things you people make and sell and would like to share right now, during the holiday shopping frenzy. You are all so clever and creative that we just can't stand it. While self-promotion can be a little weird, we invited you to post links to the stuff you make and sell, and we'll invite you again–if we didn't include you in this post, but you'd like to share your work, post a link here in the comments. And remember–we mean stuff you MAKE! Crafts. Art. Handmade. Homemade. This includes notecards, calendars, etc of your original art. If you make and sell it, we're happy to spread the word!
