**Handmade crafts, jewelry, and food gifts, by Kristen (www.overflowcreations.wordpress.com)   (www.etsy.com/shop/LookSomethingShiny)

I believe that often the best gifts are made by hand, and are from the heart.   I strive to make all of my handmade creations with heirloom quality, as I’d love for you to enjoy them for years to come!   (That is, until there’s a zombie apocalypse…then, all bets are off!)   My creations include handstitched and painted ornaments, painted wooden signs, fun and original jewelry, items made from recycled and repurposed games and ephemera, and delish homemade chocolates.   I have also started trying my hand at pen & ink art, and will soon have framable prints and cards in my etsy shop, too!

10% of sales supports Doctors Without Borders (www.doctorswithoutborders.org)

**Three Below – a ‘Secret Santa Shoppe, where kids, teens (and curious parents!) can buy new items for $3 or less.  There’s something for everyone on your list – family, friends, neighbors, bus drivers, coaches…and more!   All gifts are then wrapped up tightly and ready to go before you leave, so there’s no peeking!

100% of sales supports charity: water.  (www.charitywater.org)

**BeadforLife jewelry and gifts – gorgeous and colorful gifts that give twice!  This is my 6th year partnering with BeadforLife, and I just love getting to share the story and the works of this amazing non-profit.  100% of sales supports the women in Uganda who make this beautiful beaded jewelry from recycled paper.  (www.beadforlife.org)

**My Green Crayon – recycled crayons & gifts.   These crayons come in dozens of fun shapes (penguins, owls, butterflies, dinosaurs, stars and hearts..), and they are priced $1 (small), $3 (large), and $7 (for boxed sets).  They make perfect stocking stuffers, Pollyanna gifts, food-alternative classroom gifts, and more!   Since the start of the project in 2009,   #3477 crayons have been sold (just locally!), and over $5,500 has been raised…all because of awesome crayon-partners like YOU!  Thank you!!!

50% of sales supports clean water projects around the world through charity: water.  (www.charitywater.org)

Crayons also for sale @ Heart’s Desire in Skippack, PA (behind Mal’s Diner) and (soon!) on my etsy site:   http://www.etsy.com/shop/LookSomethingShiny

**New to You – a mini-indoor yard sale, featuring home decor items, craft supplies, and holiday decorations.    This is something new I’m trying…cuz sometimes, it’s just fun to find a lil’ somethin’ that’s gently-loved, and ‘New to You’!
