Altered Story Handmade Goods





WHIMSICAL.  That’s the word.  These sweet creations are adorable and make me want to look for beauty in the details of an old page or bottle cap.  I want to see the world through the artist’s eyes.  These whimsical, delicious pieces are upcycled from vintage books and retro findings.  They’re a great price point for stocking stuffers, teachers’ gifts, or for anyone who wants adorable, unique gifts for a great price!

Why I Like This:

Christi, the artist, is a lover-of-orange – ME TOO!!! – and calls herself an “abolitionist-in-training.”  Me, too.  She gives 10% of the profits from her Etsy site to organizations working to free slaves, and since she’s been to Moldova and has blogged about her heart for the victims of human trafficking there, I want to be her friend.  God broke off a small piece of my heart and wedged it into Moldova a couple of years ago, and I’m excited that Christi is using her beautiful gifts to shine light into that country.

Slave-Free Christmas Challenge:

This Christmas, I’ve challenged myself to shop my entire Christmas list from organizations that are helping people, not hurting people.  Today, 27 million men, women, and children live as someone else’s property.  Slaves are making the items that I’m buying to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior.  Somehow I don’t think He’s blessed by the blood on His birthday presents.  For more information on my Slave-Free Christmas project, click here.
