Etsy Favorites!

Hello folks!

Over the holidays I was hugely pregnant and long shopping trips were out of the question. So, I resorted to lots and lots of online shopping. In fact, 90% of my holiday shopping was was liberating.

I spent a lot of time searching around Etsy and came across a few shops I think you should know about. I'm not being paid to advertise for these shops. I just happen to be a happy customer and want you to have the same opportunity.

First: The Sweetest Elements

I bought both expecting grandmothers necklaces stamped with not only their new grandson's name, but the name of their grandpuppies too. (furbabies are just as much a part of our family as our real baby).  Lisa was super accommodating and helpful. Love her other stuff too.

Next: Kriya Designs

This was a gift to our son's fairy god mother. Adores-able. Again, great quality. Super helpful and accommodating. Great shop.

Lastly: SlashKnots

I didn't make this purchase, my husband did. I requested a piece of jewelry with an elephant on it and the rest was up to him. This is what he picked out. Perfect, right? Sadly, when I opened it on Christmas morning I couldn't wear it because my wrists are HUGE, GIGANTIC, man-wrists. So, I contacted Beth and she made me a new, custom-sized bracelet. It's perfect. 

Spend some time checking out these shops. I'm proud to support them.

My Valid Excuse

My excuse for neglecting my blog, my son Ryne. 

We aren't short of fun projects these days, but documenting them has it's challenged whilst holding a newborn. Hang tight...we'll be back eventually ;-)
