Have you caught the ETSY bug yet?

Hello dear friends and followers,

Have you ever wondered where you can find that unique, special item that you have always wanted, but never found...perhaps it was something you saw in a magazine, or something a stranger was wearing, or simply something that you imagined...and thought would be so cool...if you finally found it? Well, guess might be the perfect spot to find that special "handcrafted" item...the so called lost item that you never owned...until you saw it, and absolutely had to have it "item". Not only do I sell on Etsy {}, I have become an avid Etsy shopper in less than 6 months! Yes, it's true and very dangerous. When I need something "or think I need something" I search on Etsy first, then eBay and Kijiji, before hitting the local shops. I have to admit, I love finding great items online.

I recently received an email from {a fabulous website for moms on the go} that spoke specifically about shopping on Etsy:

"This community of crafty people is all about buying, selling and living handmade by connecting makers of one-of-a-kind, funky items with buyers who appreciate their uniqueness. If you love finding treasures for your babes and yourself that are anything but run of the mill, you’ll love Etsy. But be warned, once you start poking about you’ll find it hard to stop...But the best thing about Etsy is that with hundreds of thousands of sellers in over 150 countries you’re bound to find something for every taste, style and budget."

A few of my favourites include: for stylish organic and Eco-friendly handmade clothing. I recently purchased a gorgeous wrap top...and LOVE it! for a cozy collection of knits for babies and small children. for awesome soaps, body scrubs, creams, lip balms and much more. for custom invitations, announcements & photo cards.

Happy shopping!

Yours in Design,
