great gift ideas! and you can support local artists
Anne makes these incredible books and photo albums. she also makes these awesome freehand initial cutouts for your walls. the one below she made for Henry! It's a gorgeous red. buy one or more from her. any of these are great to have for yourself, or they make awesome gifts. i own a couple books, and bought some for hosts of a baby shower.
not sure her etsy page is up and happening, so contact her through the blog if you want to order something from her.
another great idea is jewelry from Julie Geer Kennedy, who lives and works in athens, ga.
Made of clay, and hand-fired (is that the term i'm looking for??). i own an awesome necklace, and bought some for the hosts of a baby shower. they're super cute. and affordable!! Her etsy's here!
