Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to the VIP blog!

For this week’s Monday post, I have decided to get into the holiday spirit by knocking out some online holiday shopping before the post office gets too crazy + really don’t like camping out on my front porch in the snow waiting on packages to arrive right before Christmas *wink* #KnowWhatImSayin’ *cue Scotty P from Meet the Millers*

Now, without further ado and movie-clip distractions, here are some awesome handmade picks from some of my favorite artisans. Dear, Santa–take notes *wink*
