Oh My! Gift Guide Pin Party

Oh My! Gift Guide Pin Party-Pin your products & nominate a handmade/indie biz to be featured in our Holiday Gift Guide!

It’s the shopping holiday season and the perfect time for an OMHG Pin Party over on Pinterest. Here’s your opportunity to support makers and other small businesses by nominating, repinning and purchasing. Join Jessika and I as we compile the ultimate handmade and indie business pin board. You can find our pinworthy picks over on the Oh My! Gifts board.

A little later in the month, Oh My! Handmade will be publishing our Holiday Gift Guide for 2013 and we’ll be choosing our favourite products from the pins. Sounds pretty fab, right?

We’d love to include goodies from your business too. Want to see your small business represented on the Oh My! Gifts pin board and, potentially, the gift guide?


Oh My! Gift Guide Pin Party-Pin your products & nominate a handmade/indie biz to be featured in our Holiday Gift Guide!

1. Leave a link to your shop in the comments below AND nominate a fellow maker or indie shop that you love. We’re super excited to discover your businesses and the businesses YOU love. We’ll pick our favourite item(s) from each biz and add them to the pin board.

3. While you’re at it, why not follow Jessika and Marisa on Pinterest?!

      Jen – I was already a huge peppersprouts fan (love this year’s addition of the Advent calendar) – but how didn’t I know about your Chatty Press biz too? Had to reign myself in from pinning all the things! Always a good sign! Great nominations too. Pinned pinned pinned!

      • Jen, everything you do is JUST SO GOOD! And that Advent Calendar is ridiculously awesome-adding to my wishlist for sure! Also thanks for the Long Winter Farm recc. anyone who makes Unicorn Fart scented anything is an automatic winner in my book. Have loved the Handy Maiden shop for years & years too. This is so fun!

        • peppersprouts says:

          awww you guys are too sweet! And seriously long winter farms scents are to die for! I wear a different one each day depending on my mood! Gah! So many fun things to pin!!!!!!

    • Marisa says:

      Thanks Raphaele – thanks for pinning along! Love the cassette tape tote in your shop – so fun! And great nomination – sixosix’s personalized map necklace is such a great idea.

    How nice!

    My shop: http://www.lunalollipopshop.etsy.com – I make sweet polymer clay cupcakes and happy little things. I am currently trying to raise funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines – 50% of all my sales will be donated to the Red Cross.

    Thank you dear Terri for the nomination!

    I would like to nominate https://www.etsy.com/shop/byelsieb – she makes lovely personalized name cushions and pillows for children! Very pretty fabrics and colors!

    Thanks OMHG!

    • Marisa says:

      Hope all of your friends & family are safe and you manage to raise some funds for typhoon relief. Both of these shops have actually already been shared & pinned. Thanks!

    • I could spend hours in your shop Jessica-your photography is so incredible peaceful & full of heart. Hard to choose the ones I love! I’ve been a fan of Elena’s since I shared her Meeting the Makers post in 2011, you are both so talented!

      • Jessica Nichols says:

        Thank you so much Jessika! I am honored you feel that way when you look at my work. Oh I have to go read that post about Elena right now! I have known her online for years, what a beautiful soul!

    • Marisa says:

      Thanks Ines – what a wonderful world of little creatures you have created! And thanks for the nomination – I will happily get lost in a paper goods store any day!

    • Marisa says:

      Thanks Joy – love your fabric choices on your custom pillowcases. I know I would’ve loved having a custom pillowcase of my own as a child. Unfortunately, the link for your nominated shop doesn’t seem to be working.

    • Marisa says:

      Thanks Nitsan – your jewelry is beautiful! So hard to pick just a few pieces to pin. Small Talk Accessories has actually already been shared & pinned.

    • Marisa says:

      Nitsan – your jewelry is beautiful! So hard to pick just a few pieces to pin. Small Talk Accessories has actually already been shared & pinned. Thank you!

    • I will definitely be sending out some of your cards this year Kat! Wld you prefer me to order through your Etsy shop to help your sales? Everyone Kat rocks-she also teaches awesome art classes in town that my oldest girl loves! Also thanks for the Keephouse recc. I didn’t realize they were local too 🙂

      • Kat Frick Miller says:

        Etsy sales would be awesome, Jess. I’ve only had the shop up a week so that would be a big help. I’ll be adding a local pick-up shipping option tonights.
        Thanks for the kind words and support!

    • Marisa says:

      Thanks Alicia – always love to see what you’ve been folding lately! And thanks for sharing SewBeastly – what fantastic accessories! Pinned.

      • laalicia says:

        Thanks, Marisa! I love this gift guide pin party! I’ve been hearting and pinning all over the place — so much cool stuff to see ! 🙂

    • Marisa says:

      Thanks so much – your shop is full of wonderful gifts. Take Me Homeware looks gorgeous but I’m having a bit of trouble getting Pinterest to work over there – will try again later.

    • Marisa says:

      Thanks Irina – as you’ve shared 2 of your shops with us, we’d love it if you’d come back and comment with 2 other artisans/shops you love!

    • Marisa says:

      Thanks Karen! My computer is flagging your links as suspicious (not sure why – anyone else having this problem?) but I found you & your suggested shop over on Etsy. Gorgeous gems and loved your nomination – I have a soft spot for anything Brazilian!
