I love Etsy!

I hope everyone knows about Etsy because I *love* that site! I go in spurts with purchasing from Etsy, but overall have been so much happier with my Etsy purchases than my eBay purchases. Anyhow, everything on Etsy is handmade (not factory made) and is new--or something new that is made out of repurposed older stuff. There is some NEAT stuff on there!

Earlier this week I purchased some adorable personalized stickers from Autumn Leah Designs. I found her Etsy shop when I was blog hopping--I think I stumbled on her sister's site...and of course now I can't remember what the blog was called. Ooops! Anyhow, I ordered these stickers and we'll use them on Princess's Valentine favors at preschool. They're going to be sooo cute!

Today at preschool we encountered yet another classmate with a missing tooth. I will *cry* when Princess loses her first tooth. Actually, I'll sob. I already cried when the dentist showed me the x-ray that showed her permanent teeth starting to move up through her jaw. At any rate, this teeny tiny (smaller than my almost three year old!) five year old showed me the gap in her mouth and informed me that the "toof faiwy" brought her "four tworters" (so funny--I think she's lisping because of the gap). It made me realize I need to get on the ball!

So tonight I ordered two tooth fairy pillows from Lil Pink Chicken on Etsy. I ordered two because *of course* I need to have nearly identical ones for the two children, so I'm planning ahead. The pillows are so cute and the price is fantastic--just $9.99!! The cost of the materials plus the cost of gas to get the materials plus the cost of my frustration with my sewing machine...well, let's just say it would be a LOT more than that if I were to make these myself!
Isn't the sample pillow cute? Love it--and it is the colors of Princess's room. I ordered Handsome one that is blues and yellows. The pillows are perfect because they can hang them on the outside of their doorknob and the tooth fairy won't accidentally wake them up.

Cute stuff on Etsy!

That is such a precious tooth fairy pillow. My daughter is only two, and I can't imagine the trauma (for me) of losing her teeth! But that little pillow is so cute that it should help you a little bit!

What cute little things you bought. I love etsy too! I bought one of Kimbas valentines pins. I dont think she had time to put them on etsy cause they sold out that fast, yikes! That little pillow is oh so sweet. My youngest is still waiting on a few to fall out. I may have to order one of those little darlings.. 10 bucks! You cant beat that~ thanks
