Saturday Link List - Small Business Saturday

The Saturday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is dedicated to supporting small businesses nationwide in the U.S.  So I want to invite you to my Etsy shop (The Storybeader's Bookshelf), which has 23 items for sale.  

If you include the phrase
Celebrating Small Businesses
in your note box when you check out, I will give you a 20% discount on 
any and all items till the end of November.  

Etsy is a favorite place for me to shop, filled with creative artists, 
many of whom make one of a kind pieces.  

I hope to be walking in a month (hope/hope) and would love to buy a beautiful antique wooden carved cane from wilshepherd Etsy shop.  His entire shop is 30% off if you remember to use his coupon code.  

Glass Art by Margot has always been a favorite shop of mine.  I’ve been window shopping here for years and love her mix of recycled and utilitarian glass items.  This is a favorite, a recycled wine bottle cheese board.  It would be a great gift for my sister, who loves wine.  

I’ve been admiring Lori’s (charmeddesign1012) wrap bracelets for some time now.  I usually don’t wear bracelets myself, but hers look so soft and inviting.  You can select your own size, and she will make yours a custom order.  This would be a great gift to myself!  Hmmm...

Etsy is a great place to buy supplies while supporting small businesses.  Moira Richardson, who I’ve been taking art journaling classes from, has an Etsy shop called Key Lime Supplies.  She's been having a 30% off sale on washi tape for the whole month of November.  Sounds like a winner to me - I love washi tape!  

Other supplies I’m always looking for are stencils.  I particularly like punchinella, which is great for layering colors on paper.  I found some at Tara Anderson's shop (citronfaire).  There's lots of other fun items in her shop, including paper kits she has pieced together.  

I love including nature and birds in my art journaling.  And this beautiful digital paper by Jamie at PoppyHillCreations is a favorite.  She's very helpful to her buyers and will customize paper for you.  Jamie also states right up front that her digital paper is for personal or commercial use, and let's you know what she means.

Great sale Deb! It's fun seeing the supplies you like since I'm pretty clueless when it comes to art journaling but I'm trying to learn. Would you believe I've still never seen washi tape in person? I need to get up to speed!
