Addicted to Etsy

Here's what's new in my Etsy shop this week!

So.. you know how some people are addicted to Facebook? I'm addicted to Etsy. I've figured out how to "heart" shops and now I have nearly ten pages of favorite stores that I need to look at every day. I have to say that seeing little squares filled with beautiful things all stacked up against each other is the start to a wonderful day. I just have this thing for color and creation, and that's why I love Etsy. I don't buy as much as I'd like - but if I see something really good, I am not hesitant to hit that "buy" button! Because what I've found so far is that everyone who sells there is genuinely nice - extremely nice, and it makes shopping there even more of a pleasure. And now, I'm going to stop because I'm sounding a bit like a commercial!
But here's some of my faves. I am always looking for fun, colorful new shops!
Karen Fields Gallery
Sew Fragrant
Calico Daisy
Tinkered Treasures
And my sister's site: GlenShire
And here's one of my favorite Etsy shops - they sell these wooden shapes that you can alter to your liking - this is a set and you can find it here at Say It With Letters.

Do you have some Etsy faves that you could share with me? Leave me a comment with a link so I can check them out!

And I really think I need one of those pins. It would make me happy to wear it! :) I'm going to go visit all the shops you posted about because I'm also addicted to Etsy. I don't have enough time to look but whenever I do, it's always so inspiring!!
