Etsy Picks: Stocking Stuffers

5 Dec

Today I finally had to surrender to my to-do list. I’ve been so busy lately between the shop, my photography business, working full time, being a wife and mother and other family obligations;  I had to realize that I can’t do it all. I wish I could, but it’s better that I save my energy and do a few things well than do a lot of things crappily.

This means I may not get to add more Christmas items and stocking stuffers to my etsy shop in time for Christmas. Although it’s terribly disappointing, I’m glad to not have to live under the stress of trying to constantly accomplish things and instead can enjoy time with my family and focus on my photography clients and celebrating the holidays.

I am going to follow through on my promise to post my Etsy Children’s Picks post because I am nearly done with that one already. I hope to have that up next week. Since I don’t have time to devote to adding more things to my shop I’m going to promote the items I do have up.  I’ve also chosen some other awesome finds from Etsy that would also make perfect stocking stuffers.

I’m also extremely proud to announce that I’m a part of a new Etsy Street Team – Team Librarian.  Check us out, and if you have an Etsy shop and are involved in the library field or just have an intense love of books, contact Lisa and join forces with the best Street Team out there: Team Librarian.

1. Vintage Lion Placemats

I’m selling the pair of these in my shop and I just love their 1970s charm.

At the time I listed the estimate of the shipping based on the information I had. I can come down on the shipping (depending on your location), so if you are interested, convo me with your address and I can quote you an adjusted rate.

2. GreebleMonkey 2011 Calendar

Aimee Geese is a photographer and blogger living in Colorado. She sells calendars on Etsy that feature her gorgeous photography.

I am not exaggerating when I say I wish I could be half the photographer she is.

3. Austrian plate

I love using little plates like this to hold jewelry or my vitamins.

4. Felted ‘Shrooms

If I received these babies in my stocking, there would be much squeeing of approval.

5. Peacock Earrings

Peacock feathers are always in style.

6. Houseplant Needlepoint

A cute little stocking stuffer.

7. Fairytale Jewelry Box

8. Cassette Tape Appliques

Inexpensive and adorable.

9. Vintage Owl Vase

Could your desk use some pimping?

10. Itty Bitty Silver Music Note Ring

A fave.

11. Clear Glass Bowl

I use bowls this size to feed my cats. Also perfect for a personal portion of salsa.

12. Neko Case

A Japanese cat-themed case for your iphone or ipod touch.

(And yes, I think I’m very clever.)

13. Peacock Dish

If you don’t buy this my Mom will “borrow it” from me. Permanently.

    I have $50 craftastrophe bucks burning a hole in my pay pal….I think I might hemorrhage trying to decide between felted shrooms and cassette decals. Oh my head! Great picks, trouble maker.

      I bought ’em both, damnit. But I found the shrooms in multi-colors. She also makes ladybugs. Between the caffeine and the shopping high, I just may rupture with joy.

        I try to transfer money out of my pay pal on a very regular basis. If it sits there too long I start to justify blowing it all on etsy purchases.

    1) Congrats on team librarian! YAY!

    2) I just might be interested in Lion placemats, but when I clicked the link, it took me to the calendar. Will you point me in the right direction? Will check if I can find them in your shop.

    3) Oh, the earrings. Oh me me me me me me me!

    4) I’m glad you’re removing some items from your to-do list so you can enjoy your holiday too.

      Stupid link errors. I do that sometimes.

      If you go to my shop the placemats should be easy to find. I don’t have a whole lot listed right now–I think I’m down to one page.

      And aren’t those earrings fab?
