Crunch Time!

Ok, people, I know some of you are sitting out there thinking, there's plenty of time to finish Christmas shopping. I'm right there with you. I look at the Advent calendar and see that we still have 18 days left.

Until I think about how I would much prefer to shop online than in the crowds. And that means I have to allot time for shipping. And if I have a custom order, time for it to be made. Which is why most shops have a deadline around December 15th (if not sooner). Which basically means, at best, I have one week left.


This isn't quite panic mode, but it's definitely time to step it up and stop imagining there are some extra hours floating around in the time-space continuum. To help you out, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite things from some of my favorite shops on Etsy.

First up, Cereus Art.

Dana has some great beachy decor for those of you who are sand and sun people. What catches my eye in her shop right now is this set of 4 gift tags made of capiz shells.

Next is Lemon Lime Llama.

Mindy has fun stuff like superhero bottle cap magnets and tie-dye shirts and onesies. But the coolest thing is this set of garden stones:

How perfect would those be along a garden path? Although the "Let's Go Crazy" ones appeal to the Prince fan in me.

Then there's Sugar and Spice Studios.

They have lots of cute stuff but I think this owl and bird mobile is adorable, don't you?

And then there's Kiddie Kove.

The hair clips are really cute. I had a hard time choosing one to showcase, but I think the ladybug would be the one my girls would like best:

And let's not forget {NOTES} by redletter studio.

You all know how much I love Stephanie's stationery, so it came down to a random selection to decide which product to highlight.

And, of course, for the do-it-yourself-ers out there who want something unique, there's three little monkeys studio.

Gretchen designs the look and you get to print them yourself. She even has some mustache designs that are so chic now, but I'm a fan of this look myself:

Another fun collection is appyDESIGN.

Jesse has some really nice wedding invitations including this one:

And how about this hilarious hand-knit hat by From the Sticks?

Finally, with hilarious sayings like "Death Before Comic Sans," "Gingers Eat Souls," and "I'm Much Cooler Online," these buttons from geek details are entertaining. The grammar nut in me likes this one the best:

Happy shopping!
