We just discovered something cool - did you know that Etsy has a gift registry tool? So if you're getting married, or planning a baby-shower, or even a housewarming, you can make a fabulous wish list of lovely handmade stuff. You'll get beautiful handmade things, and small businesses will get...business! Awesome!
It's a bit of a bear to work with, but this article can help walk you through the process.
Happy planning your big event!
