Support Small Businesses! | a few favorites

it's Hump Day! but it's Friday for many of us. so that makes it Frump Day! or Himp Day! Whichever you prefer. Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite small businesses so after you wake up from your food coma, you have a few great shops to start your holiday shopping - or finish your holiday shopping depending on how organized you are.

this list may not get everyone on your shopping list but it's a great starting point...

a // Eva Marie Typograpy - These coasters are just one of my favorites from her shop. She does lovely art for cards, prints and coasters.

b // Oh Sweet Joy - Ohh, how I love her headbands! She recently added a holiday collection and wire headbands!

c // Aleks Handmade - For the little ones in your life, stock up on these softies and other goodies. The price tags can't be beat and the style is ADORABLE.

d // Amanda Lynne Designs - Clutches and wristlets for your girlie heart. Her bags have fun prints and are perfect for organizing in your purse or to carry on a quick trip to the grocery store.

e // Naptime Diaries - Scripture and hymns written on the walls of your house. If that doesn't sound perfect, I don't know what is. There's something here to touch everyone's' hearts, lift them up, and share joy.

f // Amy Cornwell - Her jewelry is STUNNING, y'all. A princess ring is on my wishlist. I have one of her Reese necklaces that she graciously gave to everyone at the Influence Founding Members dinner and I wear it basically everyday.

g // NS Pottery - Whether you're looking for coffee mugs or statement necklaces, this girl has it. And her color range is perfection. I'm a big fan of the latte mug and stamped spoon combo; it's perfect for the coffee/tea/hot chocolate fanatic in your life.

h // FlutterbyHannah - Sorry, guys. I know I've raved about Hannah's work before but I just can't help myself. Her work is amazing, her little ones are ADORABLE, and I get to call her a friend. Pick up something for the whole family from this lovely lady.

i // After Hours Agenda - Got a guy into graphic tees? I love their designs, especially the Alter Ego tee and the Glenn Coco tee.

j // Month of Mae - Whether for a big guy or a little guy, they have some great patterns and solids in necktie and bow-tie form. This gingham one is a favorite of mine.

k // One Simple Red Stitch - This girl knows how to use patterns! I love the combinations she has on her crayon rolls, pennant banners, and onesies. The kiddos will love them too!

l // Undulating Contours - For the guy who has it all, give him a place to store it all. If he's anything like KJB, he likes to use his nightstand as a catch all. Maybe one of their organizers will give him a place for everything.
