artsocial-gift-guide Whaaa! I can't believe it's almost Christmas. We got a tree last weekend and it put me in the Christmas spirit SO fast. I think it's that tree smell... it brought back so many memories of decorating Christmas trees at my dad's house. And we got a BIG tree this time. No more tiny-I-live-in-an-apartment trees for this girl!

Anyhoo, I wanted to share one last batch of favorites from my ultimate gift guide - which I really should've called Erin's Giant Wish List, because I want e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

P.S. a motorcycle scarf?? I know. I've been watching a ton of Sons of Anarchy lately... no spoilers! I'm only on season 5. I could never pull off a motorcycle scarf, so please get it for yourself or someone you know so I can live vicariously through your badass fashion sense.

Happy final shopping days, friends!!

the artsocial gift guide Guys, this gift guide is becoming dangerous. There's just too much cute! The items above are some of my favorites so far... and we've got another month to go!

Whether it's used for serious holiday shopping or just to beef up your pinterest wishlist, this gift guide is so much fun to put together. BIG thank you to everyone who's pinning, commenting, and following along. It means the whole world to me. I wish I could buy each of you incredibly meaningful gifts (Leslie Knope-style) but since I can't, I'll just keep gift guiding :)

Hooray for shopping early! We're kicking so much ass right now.

artsocial ultimate gift guide I had so much fun sharing my favorite things for the holidays last year, I'm doin' it again! And this year, I'm going all in. I'm starting early - because if you're anything like me, waiting until December to shop gives you major anxiety AND you'd rather order everything online to stay as far away from a mall as possible.

So it's on. STARTING TODAY! Gifts for your besties, your sisters and your misters. I'll be adding to it until December 18th so there will be plenty of goodies to pick from. Whoop whoop!

Check out the full guide here or following along via pinterest!

It's day 25 of holidazzle! Sad face because it's ending... but happy face because it's almost Christmas and then New Year's and then ALT SUMMIT. Since it's the last day of holidazzle, I thought I'd switch things up a bit. Just like on the last day of school when you don't actually do any learning, you just sit around and day dream about the summer ahead. Well, similarly - all the online holiday shopping should already be done, so I'm gonna sit back, relax, and day dream about cute iphone cases... that's the same, right?

Too much cuteness! Which one would you get?

These little zines are genius... and I like saying "zines." Bad Girls Throughout History:

A 22-page zine that briefly, and in no way comprehensively, illustrates the bad ass women who have ever existed. Includes: Lilith, Marie Antoinette, Nellie Bly, Ada Lovelace, Amelia Earhart, Anita Garibaldi, Tallulah Bankhead and so many more!

That's Not My Name:

A 14-page zine about all the animals who are often mistaken for their more popular visual relatives. Includes little informational paragraphs about each animal, in addition to full color illustrations.

Today's holidazzle spotlights one of my fave bloggy friends, fellow ban.do brand ambassador, and creator of awesome objects - Emily Reinhardt. Her blog and Etsy shop, The Object Enthusiast, are definitely worth a look-see, a perusal, and a bookmark... scalloped-bowl

I'm all about craft, quality, and a little bit of sparkle & pizazz, which is exactly why I love Emily's work so much... and apparently I'm not the only one. These bud vases sold out while I was writing this post! Wowza. I'll be checking back in with her shop on the reg. I'm in love with that white and gold bud vase. Which one do you like the most?

roxy-marj These Roxy Marj clutches are some of the cutest I've seen in a while... and this shop's about page made me love them even more:

I am obsessed with producing a product from start to finish that is impeccable in quality, has unique designs/illustrations, and I plan on doing that with my business even if it takes me 20 years to get noticed. Some people label me a perfectionist, but I like to think of myself as a very happy hard worker who doesn't cut corners, and who feels very fortunate to be blessed with a creative mind.

I love her definition of a perfectionist... I'm totally using that one.
