Every year I like to make at least some kind of gift guide; usually, they’ll feature Etsy sellers from around the globe, or at least around the United States.  But this year, I’m focusing solely on artisans in Kansas!  (But to let you in on a little secret, that’s mostly because I’m making an all-Kansas gift guide series for the Craftacular facebook page, which is mainly focused on shopping local, which of course, for me, means shopping Kansas.)  But take heart!   Through the magic of the internet and the US Postal Service, you too can own these amazing, handcrafted heartland goods.  And they’re pretty darn sweet, if I may say so.
