Check out [livejournal.com profile] elionwyr's new Etsy shop!

Urban Fantasies

It's a "soft opening," says she, so more items will be coming. But she needs to raise money now, so go look. :)

Here are the personal projects of my LJ friends and their friends and family, which I think are great places to start your holiday shopping. I think I posted everything that was sent to me, but if I missed something, please let me know. (And I'll keep adding to this post if you missed the previous requests for your info!)

[livejournal.com profile] whytraven has a book, Raven's Roads: A Little Twist of Texas (Also, all you librarians should see if this is something you can/should order!) She says "It's the tale of what it's like to take a long solo motorcycle trip. (Scary, but ultimately quite an awakening.) I've had many comments along the lines of "Oh, now I understand why you ride" from non-riders. If you like travel essays you'll probably enjoy it. :)"

[livejournal.com profile] cissa has many projects:

  • Electric Celt: "My original Celtic designs on jewelry, greeting cards, t-shirts, switchplates, and more! One can also get my Celtic ogham divination system, "The Voice of the Woods," there."

  • AFMetalsmith: "My artisan jewelry in silver and gold, with glass enamels, and precious and semi-precious stones. Some of this work is for sale; some of it is not but shows my range of work. I am happy to accept commissions" [ED: but since I, [livejournal.com profile] wintersweet waited so long to post this, I think it's too late now--you can always give a certificate or promise, though! I was very happy with the item I commissioned for our wedding :D]

  • And my Etsy shop: "There's some overlap here with the other 2 sites, but a lot of unique work too, in a price range of $10 and up. It's all handmade jewelry in silver and gold (mostly), and many pieces have gems. Pieces like my Trinket Rings, made to order in any size, generally ship within a week; however while I can also accept original commissions through Etsy," [same thing as above].


[livejournal.com profile] tewok says: Port Righ: "I'm in a folk band called Port Righ, which mostly does trad. Scottish music, plus some Irish, sea shanteys, and some originals. I play pipes and concertina and sing for the band. We have one CD, "Na Bi Gorach" ("Don't Be Foolish", in Scots Gaelic) that's available at here and at CD Baby. Jo Morrison: My wife is Jo Morrison, and she's a superb Celtic harper. She has five CDs, including her latest "Flights of Fantasy" that's all original music. Her CDs are available at her website here and at CD Baby".

[livejournal.com profile] banzchan says: "Studio Capsule - We have a zazzle account. We sell t-shirts, buttons and other stuff. All our stuff is super cute and fun. I especially, like our panda and our penguin."

[livejournal.com profile] dreadpiratetait promotes her mom's stuff, saying: "I'm personally very partial to her Celtic tiles--I can vouch for the oak tree which I got for my birthday and the Celtic swans which she sent us for our anniversary. www.karenpierre.com (I mention the tiles because they're very affordable.) Then there's my sister's jewelry. There's not a huge amount on her Etsy site yet because she spends far more time making jewelry and at her physical store but this gives a good idea of her work and she does do custom stuff. It's under SilverSwanDesigns. She really needs to get more of her work up there."

[livejournal.com profile] jenstclair has an Etsy shop: http://www.flotsam.etsy.com
and says: "I also have four books in print and have copies on hand to sign if anyone is interested. They will also be on my etsy shop, though. My youngest sister Jessica has been making jewelry, and she also has an etsy shop: http://www.stclairbeads.etsy.com and she really does great work."

[livejournal.com profile] two_star says: "I still have a bunch of copies of my laser-cut acrylic geometric puzzle L-topia, which I'm selling for $15 a pop."

[livejournal.com profile] ellyssian's Zazzle shop: http://www.zazzle.com/ellyssian [some very appealing nature photography, and if you know any covered bridge junkies, there's a really nice calendar with images from 3 bridges.] There's a Fungus Among Us book on Blurb.

[livejournal.com profile] bossymarmalade's BFF (hee!) has a shop on Etsy, Amias, with beaded jewelry and handmade crafts.

[livejournal.com profile] dlandon has an Etsy shop, Dena Stoll Designs, with "handmade, cloth bags of various sizes and bags specifically for knitters."

[livejournal.com profile] niac says: "I have available photographs, my flickr stream. Anything that's not people I will print for $15/print + shipping. Ask about the people. Some have signed releases, most not. http://flickr.com/photos/gabrielcain/ "

[livejournal.com profile] cortneyofeden says she "can make chainmail bracelets and necklaces. They're made from aluminum, lightweight, and I can use lots of fun colors." She can make other jewelry as well.

Finally, my ([livejournal.com profile] wintersweet's) brother-in-law has cool stuff, weird stuff, and pretty stuff at Zazzle, including ties (a betta fish tie AND a Squid Pope tie?) and we both have stuff at Cafepress, including some solstice holiday items.


(Sorry, at least it's out on December 1 this time. Yes, you can still get listed if you comment. Yes, services like web design are fine to mention too.)

Important!

Hey, business-owners, photographers, people with Cafepress and Zazzle and Etsy sites, artists, writers, crafters, musicians, knitters, and everyone else who offers a product or service that could conceivably be offered as a holiday gift: Please go here and leave your URL or other information and a quick description of what you do. Nothing is too big or too small to include (and any part of the world is fine).

You can promote your significant other's or friend's or whoever's project or business, too. And remember that you can always encourage people to give ad-hoc gift certificates (e.g., "I promise to buy you something from [livejournal.com profile] cissa!") even if it's too late for custom work or whatever. I'll collect all the links and compile them and repost them by the end of the week, so please do it soon.

Drop by and give me your information even if you think I know your info; I'm not listing anyone who doesn't ask to be listed since I can't keep track of everyone's circumstances, and there might be some reason why you don't want to be listed. ;)

You might want to check out USA 2020 Political Simulation. [livejournal.com profile] idealistagain is working on it, and it looks interesting. There's a lot of information at the website, so take a peek. There's also an LJ community: [livejournal.com profile] usa2020.

If you're interested in becoming an administrator, you can e-mail getinvolved [a.t] usa2020.us.

Sorry, I realize that for some of the custom-made items it's too late for Christmas or Yule--and it's ALL too late for Hanukkah! Well, except for the downloadables. Oh well, hang on to it for future reference anyway.



I didn't list anyone who I know has a store or business but who didn't comment previously, figuring you're swamped or whatever right now, but please leave a comment if you still want in. :) I'll just edit the post. I'll make two exceptions, though:


I do hope [livejournal.com profile] skzbrust and [livejournal.com profile] tattermuffin don't mind.

ADDENDUM:


Another great store name! This is why I wanted your help coming up with a name for my new blog for EFL/ESL teachers....

Got an Etsy site? Just started a new business? New book out? If you or someone close to you offers anything you'd like to mention for holiday shopping purposes, please leave a comment with your link(s) and a short description. I'll round 'em up and post later on.

Usually I can't donate to friends who are raising money for various good causes, but I made an exception this time, because the issue of cancer has been on my mind lately due to friends and other circumstances. So I managed to make a small donation to [livejournal.com profile] dreamingcrow's current project, the 2007 Seattle Breast Cancer 3-Day for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. That's sixty miles, guys. Wow. Anyway, if you'd also like to support her/the cause, visit her donation page.

In the future, when I'm Flush with Cash, I'll try to support everyone every time. In the meantime, usually the best I can do is to promote you, so if you are also doing this kind of event, let me know and I'll post about it.
