Hi Everyone, remember last week’s announcement about resliced by Jordan’s Handmade for the Holidays Blog Hop? Well, today’s my day!

Handmade Businesses I Love
La Sirena Facebook
Jalene Hernández is a fun, creative, who makes beautiful jewelry but I love her illustrations. I am currently adoring her Krampus cards and softie pattern. Below is a picture of the Krampus Softie that I made. My kids love him. Please take time to go to her Facebook and Etsy store and see what she is doing. Maybe even buy the pattern and make Krampus Doll of your own.
Bellas Olas Baubles
I am just love the jewelry that my student Fabiola Isabel is doing. She is a devoted college student, who has decided to take making the life that she wants into her own hands(literally). Check out her Etsy Store and look out for her around Columbia. Below are the 2 items that we own. We love the elephants but she has so much more.

I discovered these bath and body products in Asheville, NC. I am obsessed with his shampoo bars.
