I Have Become Etsy Obsessed!

I am always coming across a blogger in bloggyland who either has a giveaway from Etsy, selling something on Etsy or bought something on Etsy. Finally, I decided to check it out.


Last week I went skulking around, and boy, the stuff that they have!!!!

There are a ton of incredibly talented people who make homemade stuff to sell on Etsy. It's like going to a craft fair, but way better! You don't have to deal with table after table of knitted toilet paper holders to get to the good stuff. Not to mention that I can shop without getting out of my pajamas, which is always a bonus.

So, here's what I bought so far;


Twilight bodyspray, lotion and lip balm that is going to make me smell like Edward! How ingenious is that??? Reading those books, I wished they were scratch and sniff. I just really wanted to see what he smelled like. According to the book, he suppose to smell like honey, lilac, and sunshine. Those are some excellent smells and some very smart and creative people created a body spray to smell like him (I hope) They also make a Bella scent, a Jacob scent, and an Alice scent. I will give you my full review when they arrive, but those are some of my favorite smells, so I really don't see how it can go wrong.



The next items that I purchased were inspired by my friend A. over at Snarky Much? She is a true adventurer and told this awesome story about how she drove all over Africa for 6 months. They went whitewater rafting and she was wearing a pair of Thai Fishing pants that ended up getting torn off of her by the current right before the trip started. She then had to whitewater raft in her black g-string for 12 hours. The pants sounded great to me for some reason, just the stuff I love to wear. She told me that I could get them on the web, so I went to the Etsy store to see if I could get them there. Well, wouldn't you know... I bought 3 pairs.








Don't they look awesome??? I have a feeling I will be living in these through the spring and summer months. If anything, they will encourage the diet, I'm sure they look better on skinny people. I will give you a review and pictures when they come in.


If you want to buy a pair at the Etsy store (only $18 ea) you have to search for Yoga pants. But everyone should check out Etsy.com and see what they have, you can buy some really great original stuff.

Oh, I love Etsy. I've bought a couple of bags from Karlee Fuchs, and Katy from What Katy Did in Australia has her own shop, too. People who can sew amaze me.

And I love shopping in my pajamas, too.

I bet a lot of it you could make yourself if you put your mind to it though.

But... Glad you're enjoying yourself on there, and glad you've gotten yourself some nice things that you like. :)

I have a problem with Zappos and Amazon. I love me some shoes and books. I am trying to stay away from Etsy but I love those pants!

Fantastic fisherman pants! You're totally going to love them!
I basically live in mine, but I think I've made it clear: do not, I repeat NOT, go white water rafting in these pants. :D

I have yet to spend a lot of time on Etsy - I must admit I am a bit scared of getting hooked... :)

Thanks for the linky love & happy Saturday!
