Holiday Gifts on Etsy

As we enter this season of gift-giving, I thought I’d post some ideas from my Etsy shop, Honoring Wilderness. My shop has unique hand-crafted items that would make special gifts for animal lovers or spiritual folk. I also offer reasonably-priced Spiritual Readings and Healing which is a thoughtful gift for a fellow spiritual seeker in your life. ❤


Handmade Soap!

Many people have asked about my cold process soap, so I am putting it up for sale on Etsy for the first time: Handmade Soap on Etsy.  Personally, I think the shipping fee is dreadful but unfortunately I cannot get around that.

This soap is fragrance and colour free, as natural as soap can be! The recipe was carefully balanced on the Soap Calc website to be as creamy, bubbly, cleansing, and conditioning as possible. Quality was the main priority with this soap, making it perfect for a luxurious bath or spa day.

Each soap is approximately 125 grams.

Art is Subjective

I’ve had some facebook comments remarking on the expense of my needle felting work. I get it, because art is subjective and stuffed toys at Walmart are cheap (but still pretty cute!). Also, I think needle felting is a bit of a mystery to many people. I don’t even know how to properly explain what I do. It takes days of solid work. Basically, I turn this:


Into this:


Using only a couple barbed needles:


The rest is imagination and skill and patience.

I’ve seen similar needle felted giraffes go for $500 or even $1000. I try to keep my prices as low as possible while still reflecting the art involved. I don’t believe in charging for my time, but I do price according to quality. It’s a big world and art isn’t for everyone — and the stuffed toys at Walmart ARE fabulous if that’s what you’re after!

But don’t come at the artists too harshly. The world needs us too!
