Etsy Week - Pink

I love Etsy. I owe my obsession with the "crafters ebay" to Danyelle. It's her fault. She introduced me to it several months ago. I have gradually fallen in love with it. If you haven't already, after this week, you most likely will also. You don't even have to buy, just looking is so much fun.

The reason for loving it can be explained with a simple equation.

Inspiration + Talent + Creativity = Etsy

By far, the easiest way to find things you will love is by looking at what others love. When you find a product you like, go look at that sellers favorites. A treasure trove of wonderful handmade items is waiting to be discovered.

One of the funnest ways to browse for items is by color. It is so fun to see what the color grid will come up with. I've found some great items that way. And, I decided, that I will show you some of my favorites this way also. By color.
Today is pink.

(The coolest pincushions ever)

(pretty pendants)

(A functional and cute earring holder)

(Absolutely gorgeous photography, this one is called Pink Fern)

(the coolest necklace)

(an adorable apron)

(this TOTALLY inspires me)

(these last two are my absolute favorites EVER)

Now you've seen a few of my picks in pink, what do you think? Isn't handmade the best? Pure talent is what you will find on Etsy. Go see for yourself.

And stay tuned for tomorrow...
