Fabulous Finds Continued...

Ahhh! The twins have gone to sleep, my ds is playing in Webkinz World and I finally have a quiet moment to continue my blogging. :o)
So today I opened the mailbox to find a plethora of packages. Sweet, my ETSY goodies have arrived! When I started opening everything up I realized I needed to take some quick pics to show the wonderful packaging and "extras" that were sent. It's been raining all day and the lighting is terrible in my house so you'll have to excuse the poor quality but at least you can see my "booty" :o)

The package from LaneDesigns, that has the envelope and zippered pouch wrapped in yellow ribbon, was such a surprise! There were extra free gifts including matching Michael Miller Carnival Bloom fabric keychain and card holder! Amazing! Is she psychic? I was seriously debating getting both of these items. I was tickled pink to say the least and the handwritten note on pretty stationary was a sweet touch as well. I'm even keeping the lovely ribbons she tied everything with. Here's a pic of what she sent!

In the twine-wrapped tissue paper was this lovely French country style apron repurposed from tea towels from FreemanHouse. Looks great on and also hanging in my kitchen! She included a nice handwritten note too. She also makes herbal wraps that I'm coveting at the moment.

The adorable fabric/felt flower pins are from AndreaBaker. Sooo cute! I got these to pin on my girls clothing, hats, bowbands, etc but I may use them on my purses, hats & scarves as well. teehee. :o) I'm hoping she'll make more of these. She also makes totes, id cards and aprons.

As you can see I also received my fantabulous new car litter bag from AllysonHill! Love it! Can't wait to use it. She also included free a sweet fabric button(how did she know about my new fabric fetish?) and a little notepad with a vintage art nouveau-style picture plus her website URL. Smart girl! I love her biz card too. I think it's my favorite that I've seen from any seller. :o)

Lastly I recieved another headband made with Amy Butler fabric. This one was a quick purchase/ship from eBay so that I can wear it for the 4th of July bash at the lake this weekend. Please don't rain! *doing a little anti-rain dance*

There's one more goody on the way from an ETSY seller, a pocket mirror, and a number of customs purchased/won from eBay which I'm really excited to blog about but I see that it is quite late once again and I really do need some sleep! So more fabulous finds tomorrow I promise. Stay tuned....


My 1st "official" Blog Post

Ok so it's not really my 1st post, just my 1st on Blogger. :o)
Ahem! So for my "1st" post I thought I would share some of the wonderful purchases I've made lately on the newly discovered ETSY. Yes, I did say that I just discovered ETSY. I know, I know, where the heck have I been, right?? Not on ETSY apparently and I have to say if I stay there too long I'll buy way too much. I happened to have some extra money this month to splurge for myself soooo I did just that! Ok so here goes.....
Some of my 1st searches were for Amy Butler & Heather Bailey fabric items and boy did I hit the Jackpot! Have I mentioned that I've recently become a fabric fanatic? Oh, no I guess not! teehee. Well, my favorites are pretty much anything from Amy Butler and the Freshcut line from Heather Bailey( that's her only line so far). So I'm attracted to anything made with these fabrics. I mean ANYTHING! Things I don't need anything, "they're so pretty" anything. For instance; pin cushions! Um, I don't even own a sewing machine? Not that I don't want to...ok that's another story....soooo let's get to the show & tell. :o)
My very first purchase was a headband from ModernCharm. I'm wearing it now as I type. I have no earthly idea what I did before these headbands but I can't live without them now and have ordered more from other sellers as well on both eBay and ETSY. You HAVE to get one if you haven't already!

I found the seller MamadamaDesigns who makes all sorts of fabric goodies. I got a checkbook cover, ipod case & flashdrive holder keychain in Lime Lotus. I also love my Starbucks cappucino, frappucino and latte's so I just HAD to have this cup cuddler in Blue Lotus. (Can't be too matchy-matchy, right?)

Next up a stop at AllysonHill. She's also on my blog list. She makes the coolest car litter bags in my favorite prints, of course. I got one in Freshcut - Cabbage Rose. It will look so stylin in my minivan and hopefully will keep the "litter" down to a minimum. With 3 kiddos that's pretty hard to do!

That's enough for today. I started this blog much too late and now I'm pooped! so I'll get some shut-eye and continue tomorrow with more goodies from both ETSY and eBay. :o)
