Exclusive interview coming soon....

I will be interviewing a local entrepreneur later this week who invented a clever product that I'm just crazy about.

I don't want to give away too many details so please keep an eye out for the new post! 

Have a lovely evening,

Hot Cocoa

Rushing in through the back door from playing out in the white, blustery Michigan winter with snow drifts higher than one's head. What elixir will thaw a frozen child, quicker than a jack rabbit can cross the yard, embracing you with warm, chocolaty sweetness? HOT COCOA, of course.

An ode to that beloved beverage of my youth

Hot Chocolate & Cardamom foaming sugar scrub
from Nature's Edge Farms, $9 for 8 ounce jar.

Hot chocolate and blue mittens, from Miracle Mittens, $38

Peruvian Cacao sampler set from Flying Bird Botanicals, $29.75

Cocoa Mallow body butter  from Solstice Scents, $9, for 4 ounces

Hot Chocolate open edition print, $38 Janet Hill Studio

Ah...cocoa warms thy soul. Don't you agree?

What's in store for twenty eleven

Good Afternoon,
In the short time I've been blogging,  I've so enjoyed sharing my Etsy finds, favorite shops as well as a glimpse into my crafty pursuits. As much as I enjoy sharing those things with you, I find myself wanting to switch things up a little with the coming of the New Year.

 I LOVE a good story. In 2011, I will be interviewing a few handmade artisans and sharing their stories with you. I already have a handful of folks in mind at this time.

Stay warm and stay tuned,

Happy New Year: help please

Hello all,
Today is the second day of the week and the second day getting back to a schedule of sorts. I've been pondering some new directions I'd like to go with the blog. I'd love to get some input though. Can you share with me what you'd like to see more of from My Handmade Addiction in 2011?

With my appreciation,
