Have I mentioned how much I love Etsy :) I take nearly every opportunity I can to buy handmade and since Etsy is "The place to buy and sell all things handmade" it's my number one resource. One of my favorite excuses for shopping on Etsy is planning a party. Recently I became an Aunt and had a great time planning a baby shower for my sister in-law. It was the third party I'd planned using primarily handmade items from Etsy for. So here are the awesome shops that helped make the shower and my daughter, Elle's first and second birthday extra special.
I also included custom book plates from Taylored Arts, one of which was pasted in one of Elle and my favorite bed time reads, Shel Silverstein's Where the Sidewalk Ends.
