Hi! I'm Emily, your crafty go to girl. I love all things crafty! I enjoy sewing, scrapbooking, photography, card making, DIY projects, home decor, photo projects, personalized gifts, stamping, jewelry making and just about anything that involves creativity. I run a small Etsy shop called paperpixie crafts. I also have my products in several local shops. I am slowly but surely extending my line of products. My goal is to start filling up my Etsy shop and then eventually open a local boutique. Luckily, I have a wonderful husband who can tolerate my craft obsession, and a great family who is always supportive of my goals. This blog is a sneak peek in to my life and my creative thoughts. I'll be sure to keep you posted with all the cool stuff I see along my crafty journey. Thanks for reading!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We spent the day stuffing our faces with family and friends. Everyone is already in the holiday shopping spirit. I can't believe how early people are planning to start lining up for "black Friday" sales. I myself, don't think I'll be getting out this year. I had considered it, but I really want to focus on handmade gifts this year. I know I will have to pick up a few things retail, but I just feel like Christmas is more special when It's homemade. I'll be doing most of my shopping online with Etsy sellers, and the rest of it I plan to frugal find.

Will you be facing the crowd tomorrow for black Friday sales? I'll think of you as I sit in my warm cozy PJs snuggled up on the couch, probably making my book wreaths, and watching a good movie. (=

If your one of the many people getting ready to leave tonight and jump in line for those sales... I hope you find lots of good bargins! Try to keep warm, and don't get trampled in the rush!

For those of you who will be avoiding the crowds tomorrow, Try surfing the nets for holiday gift ideas. Make your first stop Etsy.  Etsy is a great place to find one of a kind handmade and vintage gifts. Plus, your supporting small business and independent artist. While your visiting Etsy, be sure to check out my Etsy shop,paperpixiecrafts .There you can see cool stuff that I've been making, including my Wreaths. ( =

If you find anything cool while your browsing, be sure to send me the link via email. EMAIL EMILY I'm always up for sharing new crafty goodness.

Again friends, Stay safe, enjoy your holiday shopping, and Happy Thanksgiving!
