I |heart| etsy

It's true. I have a new obsession, and her name is etsy. It's the place for all things handmade. And it's awesome. And the people on it are awesome. I first learned of etsy through Iveyhandcrafted, the talented Tobi who made Reed's blanket I posted about here. Not sure how I've missed this jewel of a site, since it's obviously been around for a while. But I did.

I've just used there feature the 'alchemy' to score an awesome new diaper bag. It works like this: Think of something you'd love to have, create a listing with the details including how much you'd like to spend on it, and then sit back as the bids come to you. Then pick the one you'd like, and get your custom piece made! And now, my new 'diaper bag that doesn't look like a diaper bag' is being made. The photos are the bag I'm getting made, and the fabric it'll be made of. Yay!

And on another etsy note, I've started my own store, which you can see here. Not much there yet, but hopefully I'll be adding more soon!

I am such a big Etsy fan! I am so glad to see you started a store! Can't wait to see where this takes you. Great portfolio also.

Jessica, I am absolutely in love with your animal paintings. Whenever JP and I have kids (probably after this education gig is up), I will certainly be putting in an order. In the meantime, I'll keep you in mind for other gifts. I love giving handmade presents.

Thanks for visiting.
