Etsy Shouts

So I got a package in the mail yesterday, an Etsy order I had placed withGreatest View. It was packaged so cute! I was as excited about the packing as I was the product when I opened it!
And inside this little lovely:
Inside the little brown bag with pink washi tape: well I would show you but blogspot won't let me add the picture here, it wants to put it at the top of the post. UGH! It is a flower making kit with die cut little leaves and felt flowers, patterned fabric flowers and buttons too!

Also Donna Downey shared a sponser highlight of etsy shop Niklin Designs. She sells custom die cuts and rhinestone designs. I went to her shop to check out her hotfix rhinestone designs. The first design I saw was a maltese cross (fire department emblem). While I'm sure this would violate some unwritten rule against firefighting and bling, I was tickled to see it nonetheless. Made me want to buy something from her simply because she was representin' the profession ha!

I love digging around etsy, seeing what everybody thinks up to sell and make and whatnot. Go check these out, and if you find any cool stuff be sure to leave me a comment so I can see!

Cha-w 2011 Goodness

I have been feverishly stalking all of the company blogs for CHA-W sneak peeks. These are some of my favs. Lists are made, favorite shopping sites are bookmarked, all that is left is to patiently (I use this term loosely) wait for the items to hit the stores.

Maya Road has posted their entire release catalog on the company blog, dear heavens, 95% of it made it to my list. Vintage Trinkets, wood spools, and zipper trim oh my!

Of course Tim Holtz has wowed us once again with an amazing amount of innovative and must have products.

Crate Paper - seriously, you had me at paper. After Restoration, I am so over the top for more Crate!!!

Does anyone else hear angels singing? (okay, that may be a little over the top, but you get the point)

Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Art Parts are amazing and some of her stamps are must haves.
