Creativity Flattened!

Wow! I came across another very cool Etsy find.

This time it is from NothingLikeIt. Robin makes "one-of-a-kind creations" by hand out of flexible polymer clay. Her flattened coasters are her most popular items. She fashions the coasters to look like flattened people and animals. They are very entertaining. This one of the Computer Geek is my favorite. I love how he is holding a mouse in his hand. He just cracks me up!!
Thanks Robin for being so creative and making me laugh!!

Too Cute Etsy Find

So I was surfing Etsy a few days ago and look at what I found.
The Sweetest Home and Daisy is the cutest pincushion that I have ever seen. I was amazed by the work that the seller, EnnaDesignShop, has put in. The pincushion features Blue Bird and his house and is adorned with daisies. I was so amazed by this piece that I had to share it with my viewers! Do you know anyone who sews? If so, what a perfect gift this would make!!

It's Mine! All Mine!!

Mine! Mine! Mine!

So I am normally very good at restraining myself from shopping. I have been so good lately I decided to reward myself. What kind of reward did I get?? A mini-shopping spree of course!

It has been at least 4 months since my last Etsy purchase. I am constantly coming across little treasures on Etsy that I must have. Through hard work and determination I have been able to refrain from making any purchases.

Well not today! While I was putting together my latest treasury, Nap Time, I came across these cute little notecards. Immediately I feel for "Oh So Sleepy". Then when I snooped around, the photographer's site, nicholslk, I came across "Lil Guy" and I had to have that as well! He is so cute that I just could not say no. This cutie pie is now on his way to my house! Who could pass up a face that cute??
Laid Back and Loving It is little cutie made by NowThatsDifferent. I have been watching him for a while. I just think he is the cutest little guy around. I love how he is photographed in a plant. What a perfect place for him. I plan to go to Lowe's sometime this week and buy him a plant to live in.

Ok, can someone talk me out of buying this guy? Similar to the the cat above, this is a sleepy kitty notecard. Lindentreephotograph did an amazing job photographing this little kitty. He looks like he is exhausted. It is such a cute little notecard but I just purchased 2 cards! Someone talk me down before I buy this guy as well!!
