Buy Handmade

March 11th, 2009

With the increased awareness of websites like I think everyone is a little bit more prone to “Buy Handmade” these days. I personally love browsing through shops on etsy, I love most everything I see there. Maybe its the crafter in me, but I can just feel the love emanating from these products. So lets all support other crafters out there as much as we can. 

Here are a few of my etsy favorites right now:

Kimmy at Shy Fox Lane has the most adorable items. She is meticulous to every detail including her packaging. Which we all know is so important. Look at this adorable paper-crafted cupcake! cute enough to eat!

I found this lovely while searching for bridal jewelry. Am I fabulous enough to wear it? The world may never know. All I know is that I want to just look at it for days and days.

Back to paper crafting… I am completely in love with layered buttons right now. Or any buttons. I love buttons! Here are some fabulous embellishements from Evalicious:

And last but not least… Are you kidding me?! I love this kind of stuff. Felt food for the kids to play with. How much fun is that! Buggabug’s shop only sells the patterns, but heavens to betsy, they are so stinking cute! I want to have a small child just so I can play with them and not look like a dork.

When buying homemade whether its from etsy or another store, there is always something for everyone, I’m sure you’ll find many many somethings that  you’ll adore too! Share your favorites with me, I’d love to see them!

    Jen ~ Thank you SO MUCH for featuring my cupcake! That is SO VERY KIND of you!! I’m going to have to make more of them this weekend. :o)

    Oh! And I forgot to mention… (duh! LOL)

    The felt goodies you featured look divine! When my kids were younger, we were a little waldorf-ey and had a lot of felt food and they are SO fun to play with. I don’t think you would look like a dork at all if you just decided to purchase them and have a little tea party. ;o)

    And personally, I think you would look FABULOUS in the bridal piece that you posted.
