BEST Featured Artists: Stocking Stuffers

 Well, we are winding down the days until Christmas.  I for one have not even started shopping! I am bad about procrastinating.  However, I am going to be putting up the Christmas tree tonight so maybe that will get me in the mood for shopping and getting prepared.  For today's picks, I'm thinking about stocking stuffers - especially if you have a gothic/alternative friend or child still to buy for.

Red Roses Digital Copy
How about some photography by Faith Snowden of Stitch Princess?  Red roses (I know, so stereotypical) are one of my favorite flowers in all the world - and a flower I know many alternative women love as well.  You can purchase this photograph as a digital copy ($3) or get some small prints to surprise your loved one with (prints as low as $4).  And be sure to check out the rest of Faith's store because she also sews beautiful dresses and aprons.  You can also check out more of Faith's works and writings at her Blog & Facebook pages.
Owl Soap
And cute soap would also make a great stocking stuffer.  I know I've picked out this Owl soap before, but I just love it!  If you would like a particular color and scent, be sure to send Sandy an email and she will try to make it happen.  I especially love that the soap is part of Sandy's Harry Potter collection - so you can also choose to get Hogwart House soaps.   And since it is made with Shea butter - it will nourish and protect your skin this winter!  You can also find out more about Sandy and her products at her Blog.

Wine Glass Charms
And finally - here is a great set of wine charms made by Absolutely Kismet.  My favorite one is the purple marker featuring the crown charm.  However, you get eight markers in a set and they feature other cool charms like spiders, set of dice, unicorn, dog bone, etc. in 7 other bright colors.  You can also find other wine marker sets (including a set with bullet casings!) and some jewelry at Absolutely Kismet's store.  And be sure to check out Absolutely Kismet elsewhere on the internet at her Blog and Facebook.

Well that is it for this week - be sure to check back next week for a final set of suggestions for Christmas gifts!
