That Gypsy Soul… and the future of Howd.i.y.

hi friends! i know it’s been a bit quiet here on Howd.i.y. over the past few months (my apologies!). i’ve been working hard to launch a new blog + Etsy Shop specializing in vintage US souvenirs (+ some worldwide) and other rustic, kitschy items, as well as some handmade. i encourage you to check out That Gypsy Soul!

thanks so much for all your support over the past few years… i soooo appreciate it! because my readers are so awesome and you’ve helped make this blog something special. i’m happy to offer 10% off items in the Etsy shop – just use code HOWDIY10.

ps, I want to keep Howd.i.y. alive in some shape, just figuring out the best plan of attack for that! the new blog will also have a bit of DIY here and there.

Check out the shop and/or read the blog at www.thatgypsysoul.com

That Gypsy Soul

get your read on…

earlier today i muttered the words “there are a lot of creative people out there” to a friend – this was in response to the fact that there are so many damn cute and creative shops on etsy! whether it’s your work, a friend’s or a stranger’s – handmade is inspiring.

the authors below have the creative gene + are pros at curating it (something i strive for here on little ol’ Howd.i.y).

so… i bring you 4 new handmade books worth checking out (+ some worthwhile stocking stuffers for the crafter in your life!)

oh, happy reading!
