Paula's Favorite Things-Holiday Gift Guide and Giveaway

Well hello there!
It's that time of year again so I thought I would share a few of my favorite things for gift giving.

As a bonus, I have a gift for you.

Just in case you aren't the lucky winner, you can get one HERE
I have several other calendars available for 2016 so be sure to check those out.

First up is my friend, Robin Davis.
Robin has been creating her fabulous Robots for some time now and she has put together some super cute prints, mouse pads and downloads on her ETSY SHOP.
I LOVE her Giant Robot Wall Puppet Kit.
Order soon to be sure and get yours in time to put it under the tree.

Skeem Candles are always on my shopping list. The Mahogany Myrrh and Citrus and Olive are two of my favorite scents. White Tea and Thyme is burning in my kitchen as I type this post.
I am also a big fan of their match bottles. They look so pretty sitting out on the counter or on the mantle. They have several other scents and gifts with their signature graphics. Oh, and be sure to check out their sale section for some nice surprises.

If you are in need of a gift for a wine or beer lover scoot on over to
Tammy Smith Designs
Tammy has a great collection of dish towels, pillows and prints featuring her designs.
If you are lucky, there may be a dish towel with your favorite city on it.

If you have one of those "hard to buy" for people on your list, check out Lennie Muds etsy shop. That cat is all sorts of clever and it was difficult for me to just pick a couple of items to feature.
There are ceramic mugs, bowls, miniatures and one of a kinds with a variety of fun themes from Star Wars to Lionel Richie. 

In the name of healthy competition, my husband, Tom Haney, also has a calendar. His is self produced and features his automatons. 
If you are in need of something that will knock someone's socks off or if you don't know what an automaton is.....check out his website for available pieces.


If you are looking for a unique piece of handcrafted jewelry check out Lisa Souers shop. She collects all kinds of vintage and industrial bits and pieces and makes them into wearable art.
You may have a difficult time selecting just one piece so I suggest you get two, one for you and one as a gift.

I saved the best for last.........
ME! -ha ha ha
All kidding aside, I have added a SHOP page to my blog. I have a variety of banners, mini canvases and sewing hoops that I designed for my Sew Happy line with Transpac Imports. There are holiday, coastal, lodge and kitchen themes so there is plenty to choose from.

Well I hope you enjoyed my gift guide. I had a lot of fun putting it together for you.
Remember to subscribe to my blog so you can be entered to win a mini calendar.
Thanks for looking and have a HAPPY and SAFE holiday. 
Cheers! Paula
