Happy Holidays, Maker Friends!

One of my favorite things about owning a handmade business is connecting with my fellow makers. So this holiday season, I thought it would be fun to organize a gift exchange among the maker community. It’s an opportunity to share a little love & have fun with your fellow creatives…and maybe even make a new friend along the way!

2. Receive the name & info of a fellow maker.
3. Send one of your amazing creations to your assigned maker.
4. Receive special something from you own Secret Maker.
5. Share a photo of your gift with #makersecretsanta community!

1. If you sign up, you must be willing & able to ship your gift by December 16.

It doesn’t have to be expensive, but your should be something special that you would be excited to receive.

Etsy Spotlight: Shovava

Shovava | via Fox & Brie

Drawing inspiration from the anatomy of birds & her natural surroundings, Melbourne-based artist Roza Khamitova creates scarves that mimic the appearance of wings. Her designs are hand painted in watercolor then digitally printed on your choice of cotton or silk fabric. I’m not sure what I like more: the color schemes, the detailing, or the fact that you can actually spread your wings…like some kind of magical friggin’ bird-lady!

You can see more of Roza’s designs in her Etsy shop: Shovava

Photography: sejkko’s Lonely Houses


Lonely Houses a photographic series by sejkko (Manuel Pita)

Using the sky as a simple backdrop, Manuel Pita simultaneously captures the quaint beauty of the house’s exterior & the unique personality that lies within. A visual artist/fine art photographer with a PhD in Artificial Intelligence, Pita describes himself as “one of ‘those peculiar cases’ of people equally drawn and competent in more than one discipline.” After a long artistic hiatus, he began sharing his photographs on Instagram and bam! his online persona, sejkko, was born. He currently resides in Portugal—the location of many of his lonely houses.

To see more of his work, visit his website or Instagram.
