Bring a New Colour to Your Life with Clay Creations by ArzuMusa

Buttons and pendants, candle holders, hair accessories and jewelry. Today's feature shop has it all! Everything from personal accessories to home accessories have all been brought together in this wonderful shop.

ArzuMusa on Etsy is a shop filled with polymer clay creations that can fill every aspect of your life and add a little color and style to your surroundings as well as to your own personal style.

Arzu is a wonderfully creative artist located in Istanbul, Turkey where she creates unique pieces of jewelery, accessories, home decorations and other creative pieces using polymer clay, glass, wood and metal. With her unique vision, she incorporates her love of color with her creative drive to share with us all a large collection of beautiful pieces you won't want to miss and will love browsing through.

I'm especially drawn to Arzu's candle holders! I love the semi-transparency of the clay that allows the colors to glow so brightly when the candles are lit. Her shop also houses some handmade buttons that are also on my favorite list! Now, if I could only learn to sew, I'd have all the inspiration I needed to put together a few new pieces of clothing to be adored!

Custom and Personalised Fantasy Portrait Enhancement

MyMagicMe on EtsyFascinating.

If I was only allowed to use one word to describe today's shop, that's the word that would fit the best. Because today's shop is absolutely fascinating, to the point that I've spent hours in there looking at before and after pictures, scrolling through items for sale and sold items as well as just hanging out and marveling at all the creativity!

MyMagicMe on Etsy is the home of a talented digital artist that takes pictures of people and transforms them into pictures of fairies, centaurs, avatars, vampires, goddesses and many more wonderful mystical characters.

This skill is called "photo manipulation" and they are the best at this type of manipulation that I have ever seen! Their shop is filled with tons of examples of different creative things they can do and when you open each listing there's even a treat inside where you can see before and after pictures! (I personally am always fascinated by before-and-after displays and this makes their shop so much fun to browse through.)

They do custom orders as well! So be sure to stop by and peek at their sold items as well (link on the left of their shop page) and you'll be able to feast on even more creative works from this wonderful artist!

Feminine Flowers by CraftedLove - A Rare Post by Leal

Obviously, being a guy, I'm not a bit flower wearer. I have a sister, though, who is. And after taking a peek at today's feature shop, she was not just enthralled but trying to borrow money from me so she could buy them out of stock.

CraftedLove on Etsy is filled with floral accessories, you see. And my sister loves to wear flowers in her hair and on her clothes in the form of pins and barrettes, brooches and clips and more. So I can definitely understand her enthusiasm when she peeked into Crafted Love, because that's what they specialize in.

The shop is ran by Allison in Oxford, Ohio, who has enjoyed filling her shop with beautiful pieces to accessorize and feminine-ize any outfit. She is also an architect student, photographer, graphics designer and crafter who loves creative outlets and crafts.

In Allison's shop you'll find a variety of floral accessories from hair pins and clips to shoe clips, headbands, barrettes and more. All perfect for adding a touch of feminine flair. Personally speaking, you can see the shoe clips that I was particularly drawn to here in this post, an idea I found both interesting and... well, very Lola-esque and sexy. Definitely an eye-catcher.
