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!

Signup: December 7

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

[Lots & Lots of] Free Holiday Gift Tags

Everyone knows at least one of them. The people who are always early for appointments, organized to the point of perfection, and prepared for the holidays weeks in advance. You know, people who have their shit together. I used to think that these were the kinds of things that made you an adult. Now I just watch in awe, knowing that my Christmas Eve will always consist of last minute gift wrapping.

So, cheers to us. We may not have it all together, but at least you don’t have to take off your shoes at our doorstep.
