It's a Marvelous Monday for Featured Etsy Seller, Owlsome Gifts

Yay! I am so excited to feature, Rachael, an owlsome Etsy seller from Nashville. She makes lovely owl inspired handmade gifts in her shop, Owlsome Gifts ! First I must say this is a perfect pairing, because I am a bird and owl lover! Seeing all the owl things on Etsy brings me back to my college days when I took a biology course, learning about birds of prey. Owls are so beautiful and mysterious. 

Today, we are on a journey to all things OWL!!

After looking at her Etsy shop, I quickly added her to my favorites and glad that our Boosting Etsy Shops Team randomly assigned me to feature her cute owl items. Her shop includes jewelry, keychains, bookmarks, art, pillows, and cards. This is the hot spot for the love of owls. I love the fact that she is a multi-faceted artist. She has something for everyone in her shop.

Take a look at her adorable BLOG, Owlsome Blog where you'll find a banner making tutorial and some of her favorite owl finds on Etsy.

Here are some of my Owlsome Gifts favorites:

Handmade Stuffed Owl, Black and Light Pink Owl Pal with Floral Belly and Pink Polka Dots

Big Owl Necklace - Green and Gold Owl with Crystals

Owl Pillow - Handmade, Bright Pink Owl on Yellow Pillow with Button Eyes and Striped Feathers, Machine Appliqued

Please see her owlsome shop today. You won't be disappointed!

Enjoy your week,

It's a Marvelous Monday for Featured Etsy Seller, CyndesPlace & Hip Chic Designs

Meet my newest featured Etsy seller, Cynde from Cyndesplace.  

She is one of our lovely artists from our BESTeam (Boosting Etsy Shops Team).  After reading her Hip Chic Designs blog,  I realized that our lives are not that different. We both try to find the time to create as well as being a Mom and squeeze in exercise among our busy lives!  (Cynde's currently doing P90X, a challenging fitness program ~ that's not for wimps!! Google it when you get a chance!!)

 Cynde loves to sew and create bags, hair accessories, and much more! I love what she wrote on her Facebook fanpage, "We all need to find our inner "hipchic" you know the one that dreamed big dreams and found a way to make them happen. This hipchic is making all kinds of bags and gift items and embroidering on everything."  This is so true...

You can see a ton of her fabulous creations on her Facebook fanpage photos.
She is currently working on cell phone cases. Cell phones are a necessity and why not buy a few to coordinate with your outfits!
 Here are a few of my favorites from her Etsy shop

I love the colors in this hair clip. Beautiful for spring/summer!

This headband is sooo pretty and only $10.00! The pink satin flower is a great punch of color for spring.

Love these flowers! You can find them here in her shop.

Have a great week!

It's a Marvelous Monday Featured Seller IMEON Design

As part of my Marvelous Monday, I am featuring an Etsy seller and fellow team member of BESTeam (Boosting Etsy Shops Team)

Meet Noemi from Portland, Oregon, owner of Imeon Design. This cool Etsy shop is filled with handmade paper goodness!! She makes invitations, announcements, cards, and other pretty paper items. I have to tell you something I learned when I read her Etsy profile, how she thought of her shop name. The name Imeon came from Noemi spelled backwards! Very clever!

Her creative process really shines through her creations. All of her cards and artwork seen in her shop are unique, because the cutting, printing, pasting and stamping are all done by hand. Take a look at some of my favorites...

 Grass Easter Egg Holder


Butterfly card

Imeon Design is having a giveaway on her blog to win these
The winner will receive four paper fortune cookies, in the color of their choice (light or dark green, blue, pink, purple or red). Each cookie will be put in a kraft box and wrapped with red and white twine.
How cute are these paper fortune cookies?!? I love this idea. They're a great idea to tell someone big news in a clever way!
See the details on how to win these here.

It's a Marvelous Monday Featured Seller Miss Pretty Perfect

Before I start, I just have to let you in on a secret....I am addicted to purses. I can't even tell you how many handbags, wristlets, totes, and messenger bags I own. SHHHH, don't tell my DH, although, he probably knows and doesn't dare say anything about it! 

I was thrilled to feature the cool handbag designer, La Toya from Miss Pretty Perfect. Her designs are over 10 years in the making. She studied fashion design in NC and NYC (how cool is that?) and was employed as a sewer for  private label handbag designer. Her journey just began... 

She started selling her handmade handbags on a little over a year ago. By the looks of her feedback, I'd say she is making her customers very happy, indeed!

Take a look at some of her cool designs. I'm in LOVE with these wristlets:


MPP Miss Rosa Gathered Wristlet in Olive-U


MPP Miss Rosa Gathered Wristlet in Texas Bluebells


MPP Miss Rosa Wristlet in Pink and Green Truffles


 Check out her other cool links to get to know her better:

Enjoy your adventure through Miss Pretty Perfect's Etsy Shop
