Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm 20-something crafter, active explorer,  and memory keeper, currently living in New York City.

Happy Friday! It's my last Friday in 2014 at work, and I couldn't be more excited about the coming holidays. This Friday Find is a little different. Instead of a link round up or a collage, I thought it would be fun to have a spotlight feature, since technically it's still a Find, and I'm posting this on a Friday ;)

My very best friend, Anna Loach, recently made a huge life decision and moved from Atlanta, GA to the mountains of Montana. To say I'm excited to see where life takes her there is a complete understatement! Besides 4-wheel drive, what do other people in Montana need? Warmth! From the amount of snowy Snapchats I've received, they are in constant need of items to stay warm in!

One of my favorites presents I've received in the last two years are these handmade scarves from Anna. She does such a great job at crocheting these chunky scarves that are perfect for the winter. So when she moved to Montana, she decided that it was the perfect time to turn her passion into something more. Enter SolshineKnits! SolshineKnits are not only handmade with love from the snowy mountains of Montana, but they are so soft, durable, and most of all - warm! When she told me she was opening her Etsy shop, I knew I wanted the Marie, a cozy crochet infinity scarf.

Marie is just as described: chunky, warm, and I can wrap it around my neck twice, which is my preferred way to wear a scarf. I love that it will complement so many outfits because of it's neutral color.

I'm a huge fan of homemade presents/goods and supporting newer, small businesses. They have the ability to make everything just a little more unique than a Target or Anthropologie (even though I adore both of those brands!).

I'm not sure how I'll do these Friday Finds in 2015. I've done link round ups, collages, and for this one, a spotlight. I like the link round ups, because some links just need to be shared. I love the collages because they look so visually appealing, and I like sharing what products I'm into at the moment. And the spotlight is super fun, because I love small businesses and I think they deserve to get shared more.

Which do you prefer? Let me know in the comments!
