Featured Etsy: NoraJane

In Featured Etsy on December 18, 2009 at 3:55 pm

I was perusing Etsy the other day and stumbled across a little lady somewhere in NC who hand makes stamps. Like, ink stamps. They were so cute and affordable that I bought two (even though I’m broke, broke, broke). She sent them immediately and they were perched in my mailbox within a few days. She threw in an extra stamp just to be awesome! Anyway, her name is Nora Jane and her family owns a business named Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  I tried out the stamps as soon as I got them and they are clear and easy to use. Can barely wait to do something crafty with them!

I got this:

And I got this:

Check out her Etsy Site. She’s preggers with twins and lives in NC…what more do you need?

Young mother and create-r, Corrie, is the proprietor of one of the cutest Etsy shops I have had the pleasure of coming across. Her jewelry and accessories are not just beautiful, but I would go so far as to say, inspiring (which I need right now). I especially like her Vintage Garden Necklace and Portrait Necklace. The fact that she uses “found” items is right up my alley! And her prices are reasonable.

Corrie also has a blog under the same name: Corrieberry Pie

Featured Etsy Account: Mazaizy Studio

blu rabbitI am constantly on Etsy looking for fun stuff. I like supporting artists and would rather buy a handmade item rather than something mass-produced. I have decided to feature a different Etsy shop each Thursday. Here is my choice for this week:  MAZAIZY STUDIO is run by Katya whose studio is in Moscow.
Mazaizy are cute Russian spirit rabbits. They live in urban environments and devote themselves to serve mankind by giving lots of love and affection to their owners. They are smart and warm, and they are looking for the one to love.
Katya focuses on the use of Russian folk patterns which give her dolls a unique look. Her smaller rabbits would be cute mementoes to give at weddings or most any celebration.
