All Things Etsy! Great Gift Ideas for Her...

Are you familiar with Etsy?  Maybe that's a stupid question, but I'm sure there are many people out there who have not yet heard of or ventured over to Etsy.  If you don't know about it, it's basically a place where someone can open an online store and sell their handmade "stuff" - because Etsy is established, it could potentially make someone's business more easily found by people searching for gift ideas and more as opposed to someone starting their own website from scratch. 

I have found lots of great stuff on Etsy.  Recently, my 5 1/2-year-old daughter got her first loose tooth - the first thing I did was head over to Etsy in search of a great homemade tooth fairy pillow and I found a really great one.  Here's a few more great Etsy shops:

  • Pretty Faces, Portrait Silhouettes by Jackie - You may remember these from years past, but these are not your grandma's portrait silhouettes!  Jackie creates beautiful custom silhouette gifts of all kinds like pendants, prints, boxes, and even dishes.  They are simply adorable and have a cool retro yet modern feel.  Here's one example:


  • Made by Jenschell - Turn your favorite photos into custom illustrations!  Actually, send your favorite photographs to Jenschell and she will work her magic turning them into custom illustrations, like this:


  • Stemellina - you can find some really pretty and very cool flowers, accessories and jewelry made out of felted wool here.  From brooches to wedding hair pieces and many beautiful items in between...

  • Calabasascandyco - Have you ever seen such beautiful caramel before??  I just want to jump through my computer monitor and eat it all up!  There are many flavors available and even flavored marshmallows like peppermint and more...I'm drooling just writing this!
