Its Tuesday and you know what that means.  I may get a little too excited over Etsy, but there are just so many ridiculously talented artists and designers out there, I just want to gush about them all.  Ok maybe not all the shops.

First up is Super Duper Things by Louloudo.  Im not going to lie, this shop had me just by its name.  These days I am all about girly, frilly accessories and animals as decor.  Don’t know why but I’m going with it, and its starting to look like I’m not the only one!  Louise has filled her shop with lovely vintage finds as well as some pretty snazzy costume jewelry.  I personally prefer costume to the real stuff, that way its way less heart breaking if something happens to a piece.  I seem to get long necklaces caught on tables as I stand up, every time.  Its a major problem. And do check out Louise’s blog for more fun Etsy finds and fun randomness! 1. Hare Silhouette 2. Diamond in the rough 3. Sailor Jerry anchor button ring 4. Creme Caramel button hairslides 5. Jack Frost recycled pendant 6. Stag Silhouette

This next Etsy shop works a little different.  Everything is totally customizable!  If you are planning an event and need a little logo to help with the look, my I suggest you take a look over at Goodpaper.  Designed by Emily Ley, these little beauties are perfect for adding little touches.  Remember, its all in the details!  Below are just some of the designs this lovely lady has done so far, but I am sure if you give her an idea, she will run with it!  Plus, you get the design in 1-2 days… who can beat that!?  While the website is still in the works, do check out her blog for all kinds of paper and printing goodies!  And if your on twitter, Emily also shares some pretty fun links too!

Today’s final Etsy shop is Hypernoodle2, a fun fabric shop.  Looking for that perfect fun fabric to update your place?  Be sure to take a look at the colorful and patterned designs, they are perfect for small projects and are sold by the yard.  And with prices as low as $7.50, why  not grab a few yards for future projects!  Or in my case, a fun addition to my ever growing side projects pile! From left to right: Candy LG Whimzie Doozie, Pink/Coccoa disco dots, Boy Groovy Guitar in blue, Zoology, Ink disco dots, Par Avion Summer, Dandy Damask in cocoa/pink, Feelin Groovy Orchid, and Leaf Gothic Flower.

Fun with prints

For those of you who may have missed it over at Decor8, Leanne Graeff’s Patterns and Prints shop over at Etsy is just too cute to pass up.  I was drawn in by her caravan printed fabric and with a quick look around at her shop, that was just the beginning of her unique products.  I am simply loving her custom house portraits on tea towels.  You can actually commission her to create a one of a kind towel by sending in photos of your home, or if you are just that awesome, give them to friends who have just moved.  What a gift!

And if that weren’t enough, check out her House Next Door hand pulled linocut prints.  Each print is cut and inked by hand giving it a very one of a kind look.  I have always liked images of homes ever since I was little, its no wonder I became a designer!

And of course, if you are handy with a sewing machine, or a brave hand sewer, there are some fun and colorful prints available as well.  I am always on the lookout for ways to brighten up a room, and a few pillows with this fun fabric would really do the trick!

Do you ever stumble upon a site and just literally take in everything?  That just happened to me over at Heather Bailey‘s blog, Hello my name is Heather.  I love her style, and her photos are amazingly bright and vibrant.  Not only is her blog lovely, but her shop… hello crafters dream!  Just from the photo on the home page, I could tell I would like everything she had to offer, and I was right!  I am loving the fabrics available, and at $9 a yard, its practically a steal.  And then I found probably the quirkiest little accessory I had seen in a while, Trash Ties.  These little guys seem like so much fun and a great way to add some color to your do’.

How awesome would it be to redo your favorite item in your very own fabric you designed?  Pretty awesome if you ask me.  Spoonflower, a website created to let you be creative, works to produce images you yourself upload into fabrics.  Priced at $5 for custom swatches and $18 per yard, the possibilities are endless.  You can choose to only keep the design for yourself or let Spoonflower sell it to others, either way, your choice. Plus, there is no minimum order and no registering and designing fees!  I can already feel the creative juices flowing!
