Etsy - A Little Piece of Heaven
Today I just want to say a few words about one of the best places to visit if you are a creative little soul or if you want to find an original handmade treasure. I found this place last fall as I searched for raggedy dolls. More and more websites were mentioning their Etsy site as well as their web site and so I checked it out.
Well now I am a faithful follower and have even started my own Etsy shop. It is an amazing place filled with all kinds of handmade items, from dolls, knitted clothing, mixed media prints to wooden items and everything in between . I consider this a place filled with original works of art and everyone is so nice. The first person I received a heart from has become a friend and I always look forward to hearing from her. She has a wonderful shop on Etsy called yoyocottage and her site is a treat for the eyes. She is also a very wise business lady and knows how to make a living doing what she loves, therefore she is an inspiration.
There are many other people on here who have helped me and I so appreciate it. Check out WanderingWhimsies and BellaBubblesShop. Then there are shops that just make me happy to visit over and over again, like fellow Quebecer ptitebaloue. I love her knitted bears, and then there is Danita whose art is unbelievable, Fuzzymittens has such a nice shop and Primgal and CupcakeDolls just make me smile. Cocoondesigns are truly different and NovaScotiaBeachGlass makes beautiful and unique pieces of jewelery.
I could go on and on, but I just wanted you to take the time to join Etsy and see for yourself what it is all about. It is a little piece of heaven for all of us who want to find something original that has been created by a real person. Join the forums and spread the word so that we can help this community grow. It is inspiring, creative and encourages us to pick up a paint brush, knitting needles or a needle and thread. We can all be a part of this and believe me it is good for the soul.
Have a great day....
