Happy December!

Hello there, and happy December! I am sitting here this evening looking out over our neighbourhood which is slowly lighting up with Christmas lights. Such a buzz in the air! I've been munching away on candy canes all afternoon, and I've created a candy cane inspired treasury in Etsy Poster Sketch that I can't wait to share with you! Just have to get myself a treasury again!

Speaking of treasuries, did you see my Teal Appeal treasury on the front page of Etsy on Sunday? I just happened to log in at the right time (how lucky is that?) and I saw it! So happy for the sellers that were featured, and all the sales that they made!

A couple of days ago at work, I spent quite some time signing my name on dozens and dozens of Christmas cards that we send out to our customers. I thought I would put together a little collection of some of my favourites from Etsy. Enjoy!

Holiday Cards - Skate Away by Cathy Nichols

Holiday Tree Card Set by Naokosstoop

Bear and Squirrel Christmas and Holiday Cards by Amber Alexander

Winter Wonderland Greeting Cards by The Nebulous Kingdom


How adorable are these? They are handpainted by Fleur Fenner of NYHop, combining art and fashion to produce amazing one of a kind pieces of clothing. I know what I will be purchasing myself in time for next winter!

I ♥ Lil Fish Studio!

A little inspiration from Lil Fish Studio's flickr stream. You'll have to click over and see the rest for yourself, but I'm warning.. it will have you engrossed! (So do it anyway!)

Fruitfly Pie

You might've noticed a little yellow owl down in the corner of my most recently curated treasury. This adorable owl is made by Wendy of Fruitfly Pie. When I finished creating my treasury I had a browse through each of the shops featured, and WOW! I fell in love with many things, but none more than these vintage inspired ceremics, you have to go see for yourself!

Whitney Smith

So sweet! These creations are by Whitney Smith. Sometimes my etsy radar functions in a rather delayed manner, and I am suprised when amazing work like this pops up seemingly from nowhere. I can't believe I have only discovered these now, Whitney has even been a featured seller on Etsy before! So this is me catching up .. Wowww!! Look at those birds! Adding to my 'one day when my paintings are walking out the door and I have so much cash I just have to spend it' list. :)

Amy Giacomelli

There is one very talented artist I have bean meaning to share with you for a long time.. Amy Giacomelli (who paints under the brush name of Natalia Skye) is the very first artist that caught my attention on etsy, and I am still continually inspired by her work - I can be found checking in at any one of her four etsy shops daily! Make sure you have a look at each of her shops, because they each have a slightly different feel/style.

Psssst! Amber has a blog as well!

Who would have though that preloved wool sweaters could be turned into creations so adorable? I'm so impressed! These creations are from ViolaStudios, and are made with recycled and repurposed materials. I had a hard time choosing just a few to blog - so make sure you visit the shop to see all the other cute creatures!
