Find Joy in the Chaos

Personalized. Perfect!

I stumbled on this necklace that pretty much defines my entire existence while I was browsing through shops on Etsy.

"Sometimes we need to realize our crazy lives are the only lives we've got...and that we just need to take a step back, breathe, and "Find Joy in the Chaos"! A perfect gift for yourself or a busy friend.

This 1" x 3/4" sterling silver rectangular tag is topped with two tiny sterling beads and a sea-foam green Swarovski pearl and opaque Swarovski crystal"

How perfectly stated, and absolutely right!

Sisters and best friends, Brody and Kelsey, have a number of very cute items in their TagYoureItJewelry Shop on Etsy. I'm especially fond of the one pictured here, but there was a handful of them that I was tempted by as well. One to note? Check out their "Wish" necklace with the dandelion! Or the "Create" necklace, another favorite.

I love their work, and if you like this blog then I'm sure that you will to! So go take a look!

Adorable... Webster's Dictionary Should Agree

I can't remember where I first found this wonderful artist but I have to tell you, I've gone back to their shop over and over again since my first click in.

Why? Because this shop defines "adorable", in fact you could put the items sold there right smack dab in the dictionary to represent the word.

It's well known I have a great appreciation for knitters. I just can't help it. But this woman's work brings knitting to a whole new level with her cute little dolls and critters and I just want to own every single one of them.

Each little art doll is made of a combination of wool, acrylic, recycled acrylic, and cotton yarns, and, they are lovingly crocheted in a smoke and pet free environment.

If you're a fan of knitters, crafters, dolls or just love all things cute and adorable, you definitely need to check out Moomeez's Boutique in Etsy. You won't be disappointed!

Boys with their Toys turn into Men of Innovation

Although the leaf pictured in this post is what caught my eye and drew me in when I stumbled upon today's shop (it's my own personal I WANT, I WANT! item), it was the truly unique items I saw in the gallery combined with the unusual list of sections in this shop that kept me there long over my usual bounce ratio for a shop... and kept me coming back to look again too!

This guy doesn't just make jewelry, you see. He's selling modern metal jewelry, art, furniture, clocks, jewelry displays and much more.

I know most everyone on Etsy has unique items to sell, that goes without saying. And here on this blog I love highlighting those who I think escalate into the uber-unique categories But this man? This man is not just in an uber-unique category, he's created his own stratosphere all it's own.

Who is this unique mastermind? Every item is handmade and designed by a self taught metal artist; Timothy Adam.

Not only does he have some of the most unique pieces in his shop that I've ever seen? He also has a website that provides an amazing resource for Etsian sellers (and handmade sellers everywhere). Handmadeology.com

So take a minute to stop by Timothy Adam's shop and take a look around! I venture that you won't be disappointed. And pop on over to his Handmadeology site as well if you're an online seller or considering becoming one. The advice there is excellent and won't steer you wrong!
