2014 Holiday Gift Guide

as you may have heard (maybe a million times) by now, i recently opened my own etsy shop!  becoming a shop owner has made me value small businesses even more.  i love having an outlet to create and it is so exciting when someone purchases something from my shop.  it's incredibly humbling and awesome to think of someone hanging up one of my prints on their wall or wearing one of my scarves or bows out and about!

so i thought that it would be appropriate to highlight some great small businesses for this year's gift guide!  i've teamed up with a number of great shops to not only spread the word about what they have to offer, but also to give heavens to betsy readers some exclusive discounts as you all go about your holiday shopping!  so check out these shops and keep them in mind as you search for gifts for your family and friends (and maybe even yourself)!
