If all this talk of Buying Handmade for Christmas has inspired you, there are lots of places on the web now where you can purchase direct from the maker all year round for birthdays, anniversarys, thank yous, or just to treat yourself.  If you have a creative hand, you can even set up your own shop!

I found these little gems in the Folksy Shop of Dormouse Studio, who has been working with stained glass for several years.

They were bought as gifts, but I may have to hold on to one of them for the tree!

Find more quality hand crafted stained glass, and Christmas gift ideas handmade by UK crafters/artists on Folksy.com.

With less than a month to go, you will no doubt be buying some last minute gifts too, and what better time of the year than to take the Handmade Pledge?

This year I am aiming to buy as many handmade presents as I can  (no-one’s perfect!) from independent designer/makers, for giving at Christmas time.

As part of this, I signed up today to the handmade pledge, and so have popped the badge proudly on the right.

If you want to take part, or find out more about the Handmade Pledge, take a look at their website.  (Original Minnie is not responsible for the content of external websites).
