Confessions of an Etsy addict

Chances are, if you read this blog, you've probably got the same type of Etsy addiction I do.

So with the Christmas holidays rolling around (and my own fantasy that I'll be flush with cash this year ... hahahaha. Right.) I thought I'd post some of my favorite Etsy shops with the hope that maybe you'll post and share yours.

Ready? Set? Go!

First up: Paper Prayers -- folk art with a spiritual slant. These crafty ladies have much more on their blog and you can convo them for items that aren't listed in the store. (They make the rounds at a lot of craft shows. I'm currently in love with this piece.

Next comes The Love Shop! How can you not, uh, love it! Great prints with a great message. There are too many fun ones to pick, so I went with this.

The Wheatfield makes me so happy. In fact, I have one of Katie's designs as my background at work. It calms me down AND makes me smile. Incidentally, she's having a sale right now where all prints are $15... Hum. I might have to pick up a few.

I am somewhat convinced that if Vol25 and I ever meet, we'd be instant besties. Of course, she might think I'm bat-shit crazy (also, true) but I just immediately get what she's talking about in her work. Plus, we both heart typewriters.

When I used to live in Chattanooga, I'd see Beth Gumnick's work all over town. Now I have a piece in my house that I picked up during my list visit. It's a hand-painted sign and I LOVE it. You can see more of her work here.

Can you tell I have a think for prints and wall-hangings? Yeah. It's a sickness....

There's, of course, my favorite etsy fabric shops: Whipstitch and FabricWorm. And the fun (and sometimes dirty letterpress) of RarrarPress and YeeHaw Industries.

So what about you? What Etsy shops do you love??? Prints or fabric, jewelry or, well, anything ... Let me know!

I really, really like the first one, and obviously I have an affinity for YeeHaw (but I can bike to the actual store :)

I'm glad you included the fabric shops. I'm thinking of making my own pillows and curtains and was looking for some fun fabric, because you definitely cannot find anything good in this town.
