I had an etsy shop years back–almost ten years back! I wasn’t at a time or space to really grow that shop or make it work. So, it closed. Lately, I’ve been thinking about certain aspects of my making–some of which I’d like to share with the world. I’ve also got nearly a month andContinue reading “process |shop.”
I’ve been hemming and hawing over floating shelves for my kitchen since I bought and moved in last June. I looked at Ikea and hated the quality–twice. You can see where I’d hang them from most parts of the house and I wanted something sturdy and substantial, something that “shows” and is a piece ofContinue reading “home additions.”
Love your librarian. Do it.
Gorgeous handmade oblong pouch from bookhou at home. I keep odds and ends in it, like mints and chapstick. Perfect for both a small bag and a big one. Get one, now.
A birthday gift to myself–gorgeous “beer” and “coffee” soaps from Roots Soap Company–made with all natural ingredients like the aforementioned coffee and beer, as well as rainwater collected for the soap making process, tallow, olive oil and organic oats. Delish.
I waxed poetic on Raramodo‘s gorgeous leather ipod/iphone cases–and now I’ve got two, to house my various ipods. Mine are a gorgeous orange leather and the below pictured brown-turquoise variety. The way these adorable little sleeves come packaged is something to be desired, as well.
A new turquoise drop necklace from The Vamoose, an etsy shop I quite adore. The chain is 27-inches long, which is just how I like my necklaces. Gorgeous.
My new Pumpkin Spice Ruffle Scarf from Janny’s Girl. Super soft and I love the subtle ribbing of the fabric. I’m so in love with this one, I’m thinking about purchasing another because as fall hits, you can never have too many scarves.
I pretty much buy exclusively on etsy now; not only do I adore supporting my fellow handmakers, but there’s something so incredible about not only purchasing something you wanted badly (and can’t find in regular shops) but also receiving a hand written note and discount card from the proprietor herself! This one comes courtesy Janny’sContinue reading “buy handmade nation, 9.14”
I adore the new “Suggested Shops” feature on Etsy. As an Etsy seller and valued member of “handmade nation”, I firstly like to support other artists, crafters, and thrifters. I buy a lot of accessories, clothes, and kitsch on Etsy. I do a lot of searches. I favorite tons. But to now be opened upContinue reading “Favorite Finds 3, 255: Etsy Suggested Shop Feature”
Today was a blur; seriously…but at least I was in good company: wearing my amazing Blur tshirt, courtesy the ever incredible Mozgrrl. It’s kind of a nice contrast to the standard working woman skirt; wear a tshirt with jazz and all that hoo to flex your style a bit…at least, that’s what I do. StreetContinue reading “Worn, 5/7”
There’s a new listing in the shop! The Ruffle Romp is a crochet ruffly cowl I created about 2 years ago and I just unearthed it from a box of samples and decided to list it in the shop. Quite frankly, I forget I even came up with it in the first place. It’s reallyContinue reading “It’s a romp in the shop! New item added…”
