handicraft heaven

The wonderful world of Etsy. Have you discovered it yet? One could so easily spend an ENTIRE rainy summer day perusing this lovely website which is chock full of artists and crafters selling their wares in virtual stores. No shopping is necessary to enjoy the beauty. Just point, click and drool.

You can find just about anything handmade on this site: purses, bags, note cards, photography, all kinds of art prints, jewelery. What's even better is that Etsy provides some great ways to shop: by category (of course), by color, by locale. Create an Etsy account so that you can easily track down your favorites.

Here are some great things I discovered today:

Removeable wall decals by stickee in Australia.

Handmade pillows by joom.

Pretty note cards by niftyswank.

The most beautiful thing about Etsy: the pricing. So reasonable for such gorgeously hand done pieces. Plus, you are supporting hard working and talented crafters from just about everywhere in the world! I vow to do all of my summer wedding gift shopping on Etsy. Check it out and you will see what I mean.
