Etsy Friday Finds

Friday, January 22, 2010

Hey there! Me again. :)

Have you discovered yet?? I'm sure all card makers know about Etsy and how you can sell your cards there. But have you poked around at all the other AMAZING creations so many talented artists put up for sale? I window shop on a regular basis but I've never bought anything due to our lack of funds, but now that I'm working again, my 'window shopping' will probably get a bit more serious now!

Anyway, I can never remember what I found while window shopping, so I've decided to start a Etsy Friday Finds post as a reminder and I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the handmade creations too! (If nothing else, it's great eye candy for the creative at heart!)

Lillalotta - Thank Goodness For Handmade Goodness!

Isn't this ribbon GORGEOUS?! And there's more where that came from at this etsy shop! I saw some little red houses on twill and cute little cars. It's a little pricey per miter and you might be able to recreate the look yourself, but I just thought this ribbon was so eye catching!

Maniac Knitter by Homelab

I sooo want a pair of these! Doubt very much that they'd help with the bad circulation in my fingers when it gets cold out, but frankly, who cares?! They're awesome! (I went looking for these when I saw my sort-of SIL buy some shorter ones at the mall the other week). And for $39 a pair, I think these are a bargain, because my knitting skills aren't up to doing this kind of cable work and I don't know anyone else who can!


I have a little thing for handbags. All kinds, leather, fabric, felt, big small and everything inbetween! And love this wristlet! It's bold and graphic, just the way I like my patterned paper! ;) Mental note to self: email The Man this just before Valentines Day!)

Polarity - The Laws of Attraction

I went looking for some prints by Diane Duda, the collage artist who illustrates those stamps sold by Funky Kits and I stumbled onto this artist who uses Diane's illustrations and puts them on these magnetic pendants! I love Duda's artwork and to be able to carry around a piece of her art, I think, would be fun! It would certainly brighten my day!

Scribbling Club

I will definitely be needing one of these in the near future. It's a personalized clear acrylic stamp for the back of our cards! I've been using a the rear end of a little bunny (nope, not kidding!) for my 'signature' and it's so time for an upgrade! Not bad for $16.

Adored Before

Wouldn't these be perfect as patterned paper behind some Whiff of Joy images?! They reminded me of the sheet music in the Jolly By Golly collection by Cosmo Cricket. Bet these get snapped up before I have a chance to buy them though!

I should mention that I am not, in any way, affiliated with any of these artists. I'm just a person who likes nice things and thought you would too. :)

Have a fabulous weekend and don't forget to enter for a chance to win my blog candy!!
