I've always wanted to do a gift guide here on 10KP, so I have been collecting, slowly but surely, a growing list of awesome, quirky, handmade and bookish gifts perfect for everyone on your list. I will be posting one every day from now till...well...I run out, I suppose. They will post every afternoon at 4, and the noon post will be dedicated to the random and regular features of the week.
Also note: on Little Lamb Books I am posting daily reviews of new picture books and re-posting in the afternoon reviews of my favorite Christmas books. I will be including links via Barnes and Noble and IndieBound, for those of you who don't like Amazon. Remember, I get a (very small) cut of everything you buy through my LLB links--and 10% of what I earn I give to literacy charities. And the rest goes back to developing the blog and my other projects.
Finally, as if this post wasn't advertisement enough, a Jams by Mags update. Most of my jams are sold out on special orders before I even get the chance to post them on Etsy. So, here's what I'll be making in the next couple weeks. If you want a special order, contact me through Etsy, or via email (bymags-at-gmail-dot-com). Big orders for Christmas (more than 6 jars) will have to be made this week, and there are some limits of availability:
Pear with Vanilla and Bourbon
Pear and Pomegranate
(Almost) Paradise Jelly*
Onion Compote with Thyme and Balsamic
Spicy Apple Butter
*(Almost) Paradise Jelly refers to the old combination of quince, apple, and cranberry. This is a combo of pear, apple, and cranberry, and therefore is "almost" Paradise.
