Save this Link

I have had an etsy thread bookmarked for months and never went back to it until today when I was looking for another bookmark. It is a list of really amazingly helpful links to navigate that you won't actually find on etsy. Make sense? Others have compiled a resource of tools and information here.

Great for both searching/shopping and for sellers =)

happy holidays!

i made some ornaments for my tiny tree today!

they are so very handmade, arent they? i have presents for my family piled around the large sewing supply tin i have it perched upon, with a scrapbooking doily-looking embellishment paper as the "skirt". i found the perfect size string of lights at cvs for 99 cents maybe? i decided to try something different for gift wrap this year and decided to wrap three of my gifts in a few layers of a tissue paper vintage smock-like dress pattern ill never use, and used some natural colored cotton string with a simple handmade gift tag. i used the pattern's directions for another gift. i recycled two brown paper gift bags and some unused tissue paper to finish up the final two.
