Barefoot by the Sea: Etsy love

Etsy love

I can't believe how many talented people are out there.  I often find myself spending way too much time sacked out in front of Etsy, scouring the different shops and just wishing I was that good.

Etsy, for those of you who don't know, is a wonderful place to buy and sell handmade items.  

In honor of all that craftiness, we're running four very special giveaways...just in time for Valentine's Day!  They'll run Wednesday, February 3rd through Sunday, February 7th and the winners will be announced on Monday.  We'll draw the winners at random.
Here are the special shops that will be featured:

This stay at home mom of 3 boys sews, decorates and enjoys working with re purposed wool, cashmere, angora, felt and yarn. She actually felts material and gives life to old sweaters as well.  I love, love, love the baby longies!  She also sells adorable booties, overalls and hand knit toys as well as stylish arm warmers, which could come in mighty handy around these parts!

ALL ABOUT THE BUTTONS 
The artist specializes in fibers and buttons.  Unique, handcrafted clocks, funky pins and button barrettes.  This shop caught my attention when I was looking for a little something for my girl's Valentine's Day baskets.  Every piece is different and fun!
