I Dream of Etsy

My latest addiction and obsession is with etsy. I am head over heels in love, can't get enough of, and utterly infatuated with the endless possibilities that exist on etsy. I have always had a passion for things that are handmade. A lot of times I'll attempt it and if that doesn't work then buying it works too. In the fall I look forward to bazaars so that I can buy handmade christmas decorations and knitted dish cloths. The beauty and work that goes into making all of these one of a kind pieces pulls at my heart a little bit. It makes me happy that there are so many people out there being creative and sharing that with others. I do consider myself a creative person, but etsy PUTS ME TO SHAME. Seriously.

At first I didn't realize all of the possibilities over at etsy, but once I opened pandora's box all the money fell out of my wallet. Jewelry, bags, clothing, templates for this and that, everything cute baby, and did I mention the jewelry? My shopping cart keeps growing and growing and I'm not real sure what to do about it. I could quit, but then I would be sad since all I dream about all day is shopping etsy. The better idea is to get my creative juices boiling and open my own etsy shop so that I can take that money and spend it on my favorite etsy items.

They go vintage too. Cait, I can totally see you there. I have already picked out a few pieces for you. See what etsy does to me? It just makes me all mushy and gushy and want to spend money on EVERYONE, not just me! It is a beautiful world, really.

Go check it out, you won't regret it.
