Christian Women Holiday Gift Guide

Thanks to the wonderful world of Instagram I have found a wonderful community of women entrepreneurs who also are followers of Christ. Often times you’ll see this written in the limited space Instagram gives you for your profile.  It’s amazing -not to mention encouraging- to be able to peek into these women’s lives and see the wonderfulness of things they produce.

They tackle production, marketing, running a household, marriages, and motherhood all while proclaiming their love for Jesus. Often times struggles are share and in return many prayers are sent up. Sometimes the internet and social media can be a bad thing but I’ve seen countless wonderful things out of this community.

I gathered a list of these women (not to say there aren’t more, I just haven’t personally discovered them yet) and what they make/sell. Take a peek and maybe give them your business and support.

Jessica offers unique vintage silverware that she hand stamps to personalize each piece. Her most popular design is the lower left corner, “a little bit of coffee & a whole lotta Jesus” spoon. She recently made Lauren Conrad a personalized spoon for her and her new fiancé and has gotten A TON of awesome exposure, because…well, obviously LC loved it!!

RaisingUpRubiesraising up rubiesJaime makes the most amazing paper goods. From garlands to gift tags you’ll be in her shop browsing for quite some time. Her wood slice ornaments and mason jar tags are very popular already before Thanksgiving is even here!

Grace and Lacegrace and laceOh my goodness I could do some damage to my bank account here! These are definitely on my Wish List for Christmas! Honestly though I don’t know if I could choose which to get. The boot cuffs are a nifty little accessory. Not to mention the company is a TEXAS company….yeehaw!!

Take the CannolitakethecannoliShe inspired me to make a hoop design for myself and my husband. I believe it was used in the wedding decor but with that day being a big blur I can’t be certain. Her designs are so so so cute.  Follow her Instagram account for updates on new listings. (Everything is sold out at the moment!) Who wouldn’t want one of those hanging on their wall?!

NS PotterynspotteryOkay if you loved the Jesus spoon then you’ll love that these two artists have partnered together to offer a handmade latte mug with one of Jessica’s spoons. Natalie also has the cutest “cup of love” latte mug. When you’ve downed your last drop a beautiful heart waits for you at the bottom of the mug. Make sure to browse her jewelry line as well. Personal fave….scalloped teardrop necklace.

I have MORE to share but will have to continue in a Part 2 post. Let me know in the comments if you know of a woman owned Christian handmade business that I may have missed! My Instagram is @linnyjo I love connecting with new people!

Photography Props by LinnyJo

I’m happy to announce that I am now offering my own line of photography prop sets!! I’ve been making my own props to use as a money saver and decided that I wanted to offer this to other photographers.

_LJP8170 _LJP8175 _LJP8176These sets are designed from the hankies themselves. Everything is made to work together as a layered set or separately for several different looks. _LJP8184 _LJP8952

_LJP8957_LJP8953The bonnets are so soft and fit newborns. They have some stretch to them. I am working on getting some 3-6 months made as well. Below are the chunky layering blankets. I have some lovely fall colors!

_LJP8954Here is an example of my layering blanket and bonnet in use.

_LJP8956All my items are pre made and READY TO SHIP. As a photographer I know the importance of not having to wait for items to be made. I usually procrastinate and miss the deadline for made to order items from other vendors. Once payment is made these props will be shipped immediately. Please visit my Etsy shop for the complete list of products. Thank you for supporting small businesses!!!
