Etsy Finds

Dog Stare by joykilledthepoet
Etsy has so many talented and creative people!

I love this shop by joykilledthepoet.  She makes jewelry and bookmarks.  She sells prints of her photographs like the one above.  I love her creations and her varied talents.  I also love that she mixes those creations all in one Etsy shop.

Pure raw chunk honey by honeyrunfarm

 Then there are those people who have a "unified" shop that features one thing.  But then, they get so creative with that one thing and make so many different products with it.  This Ohio couple started with one beehive.  The hobby became an obsession and now they have 110 hives.  They sell honey in their Etsy shop and at local farmers markets.  They also make beeswax candles and cold process soap from the gifts from their bees.  They have a cute blog here that also tells you where else you can find products by this busy couple.

Blue Cowgirl by Carla Sonheim

 I enjoy Carla Sonheim's art.   It's whimsical and fun and doesn't take itself too seriously.  However, it is expressive and the texture and color draw your eye in.  Carla's Etsy shop has original art and prints.  Right now her shop features girls, but soon she will get her animals series posted on her shop.

Wild Rose Ring by Osiris Jewelry

This shop features handmade jewelry (rings, earrings, and pendants) by an Australian jewelry artist who uses reclaimed or recycled materials.  She's open to custom requests.  I can only imagine what the items USED to be.  Before they became these beautiful creations.

If you haven't visited Etsy yet (or lately), you ought to visit these shops above and look around.  And buy!!  And then let your fingers do the shopping as you wander from small shop to small shop looking at all the creativity that abounds there at Etsy!

Thanks for looking!
