Ahhh that was a great introduction to my current post if I do say so myself!
If you’re on my Holiday list you likely got yourself a zombie Christmas card from ThinkGeek this year. I don’t recommend purchasing these as they are expensive and come in packs of four only.
Which is why in honor of Christmas and the Holiday season I do so recommend my very favorite Etsy seller for your Christmas card needs (or any seasonal card need), tinaseamonster.
Tina does some incredibly epic homemade cards that normally have something to do with zombies and the zombie plague. Her shop is one of my first discoveries on Etsy many a year ago and remains a fond favorite to this day. She does a range of various t-shirts, stickers, and totes (I absolutely love her “Panic Buying for the Apocalypse” tote which I have two of) but I always go back year after year after year for her fabulous cards for various Holidays particularly Christmas ones!
These are some of her Holiday cards. She sells them in variety packs for as little as $12 for a box of 10 with envelopes.
If you’re a bit of a geek or just a fan of zombies she’s an essential Etsy shop you won’t want to miss!
It’s hunting season girls and boys and I need your help!
Each year, I feature a very fine selection of my very favorite Etsy Shops to haul goodies from during the Holiday Season and in most cases many of those shops make a reappearance each year because they are just that damn good.
But I want to branch out this year and share my own great discoveries on Etsy as well as yours. So if you know a great Etsy Shop that you believe is deserving of a spot on my Gift Giving Guide this year I’d love you to e-mail it to me!
Just click here and fill out my e-mail form to submit it!
I’m looking for unique beauty gifts, makeup, bath and body goodies, tarts, candles, or even fun accessories….whatever! So long as it’s unique and I think everyone will like it, I’ll include it in a post! If you’d like to submit your own shop that’s perfectly fine too.
One thing, I’m a little busy so if I don’t reply back please accept my sincere thanks for sending over your favorite shop. Not all submissions will appear in a post as I have to go through them and see which I think reader’s would enjoy most.
I’m pretty obsessed with the tarts I recently featured in my Etsy Musings from the Bathing Garden. After hauling a small pack of these tarts I brought out the big guns and purchased a 30 pack!
I’ve tried tarts from MANY e-tailers and not everyone gets them right in my opinion. Some are simply too weak but the Bathing Garden gets them down perfectly.
Take a look!
I want the near two hours of my life back after following Apple’s Iphone Keynote. Ugh now I have to debate with myself deciding whether I really want a 4S or if I want to wait for them to spring 5 on us.
This is not cool Apple, not cool at all.
How about you fine folk? Iphone 4S? or waiting on Iphone 5?
Well now that I wasted two hours I best get back to beauty…actually not really beauty but tarts! The weather is starting to cool off here which means I’m busy hauling out my tarts. I notice that I never burn tarts in the Summer but I’m all about them in the Fall and Winter, how about you?
My favorite part about tart Season is finding new and exciting online shops to purchase them from. I recently discovered My Bathing Garden on Etsy and Imma like her tarts.
Chibi, manga reader’s like myself are probably very familiar with the word.
Chibi is basically a Japanese word meaning “short” or “small child”. The meaning is not meant to be taken literal in a context of say someone being short but more of a “cute” person. Chibi style characters pop all over anime and manga and many commercials in Japan, it’s as cultural as the use of kawaii forms of advertisement.
People tend to enjoy creating fan art that depicts their favorite manga stars in Chibi form like L from Death Note or even famous movie characters like Harry Potter. This in fact is the lead in for my Etsy Discovery.
I recently came across an amazing seller creating Chibi necklace charms of the 10th and the 11th and I immediately had to purchase both for myself (and 10 for a friend).
Take a look if you’re a Doctor fan!
