Finnish Animals Tote Bag by AndyOnlyEatsCandy

There is a song I really love by Push Kings called ‘Girl Who Only Loves Candy’.  Well, this seller is all the way from Finland and all he eats is candy, candy.  Well, let’s hope he has a good dentist.  He certainly makes some cavity inducingly sweet items.  I had his shop as a favorite for some time, but this is a new item featuring animals from Finland including a hedgehog.  The craft world has some cute hedgehogs, but this may be the cutest one I have ever seen.  Our hedgehog, Hoggle, is still cuter though.  However, if you are looking for something to buy me, I will accept said totebag happily.

Variations on Purple Theme bag by Banjoflannel

Most anyone who knows me has probably noticed that I am not a bag lady.  99% of the time, I alternate between carrying two bags even though I have two brightly colored purses by Matt & Nat that I save for special occasions.  One is a grey flannel tote with a flowery applique made by my pal Charlie (A Minor Thread) and the other is a dowdy camera bag for when I want my camera with me.  I figured it was time to get another purse and when I saw this style by Diana of Banjoflannel, I fell…hard.  There are elegant touches like the piping matching the lining, the sexy silver buttons, and the soft pleats on the front of the bag.  I contacted Diana about a custom bag and she has been wonderful with communication and making sure I get exactly what I want.  Unparalleled awesomeness.

Cards by Essimar

Essimar makes some of the most beautiful cards I have ever seen and, being a creator of paper goods myself, I have seen A TON of cards. I wonder how it is that Esther R. lives in Chicago and I have not seen her work until today, thanks to her tuli card being on the Etsy front page. I’m really at a loss for words. Each of the cards are little works of art. These are two of my favorite.
