Cool Etsy Shops

I am all about promoting the work at home crafter in any way possible. I wanted to list some of my favorite stores on Etsy here and share their awesomeness with you guys.

Here is some items from my favorites:

Buy Handmade

Some items are funny, some are just plain gorgeous, some are from friends. All of them are awesome in their own way. And this gives you an idea of what I like. Basically anything pink and green LOL

Here is some cool shops:

Blissful Goods
Mixed Species
The Cozy Corset Cuff
Ugly Teddy
McVille Creations
Sweetheart Sinner

Ok I am getting too tempted to buy something looking thru these shops that have on my favorites list on Etsy! If I was rich...oh man, I would have a house stuffed with cool handmade goods!

I am hoping to get my new mama and me set posted soon. i am gonna see if Tyler will take pics for me. Maylee has been super cranky all week. I guess its her teeth. She is making a lot of "old man" faces where she folds her lips in her mouth and it makes her look like an old man, I have seen so many babies do this, I guess it helps their gums feel better. I hate it they have so much trouble with their gums.She will grow teeth someday!

Dotee Dolls!!

OK I am totally hooked on the Dotee Doll thing. I made one for a dear friend, and one for my mom and dad to hang up in their house. I have plans on making one for everybody I know at some point LOL I wish I would have found this while I was pregnant with Maylee, this is something that can be done while laying in bed with just a few supplies handy. You do all the work by hand on these. I think thats why I like them so much. I have so many beads and stuff here that I will never use for anything but now I can use them for these cute dolls! YAY!

This is the doll I made for my parents. Its hard to get a good picture of these things. I used some cool swarovski crystals in her tail so she would be all shiny and stuff. I made a heart shape on her belly with some red E beads...bad idea, cause it blends in with the red fabric LOL DUH! Its still cute though

I am planning on making one of these for my sister, SHHHhh dont tell her. Susan if your reading this dont say crap to your mom! I want it to be a surprise! She will never know, hehehehe

I will post pics of hers whenever I get it done. Its been a busy week. but thats another blog under the "venting" category LOL

For more info on these cool dolls and how to make them you can check out the Dot's Blog
There is also a cool video on how to make these dolls. The video is just a basic overview to give you the idea of how its done. I get the feeling there is no set pattern for these. You just let your creativity run wild...I LIKE it!
