Oh, What A Wonderful Day!

Ah! There are so many things that fall into place at the same time it always seems. And of course you inevitably have periods of time where you're just so bored waiting for SOMETHING to happen. Well I actually prefer everything happening at once, I work better under pressure but as it turns out trying to help my husband with his school/work work, planning a wedding at a location 2 plus hours away, taking care of a puppy, and trying to plan something cute/sweet for Valentines Day (which is less than a month away) at the same time is a bit rough.

Did I mention I'm practicing making my own wedding cake too?

But what I've realized is eventually if you just try to plow through all of it, you end up going a lot slower than you want. It's important to take time away to appreciate other things and maybe get some inspiration! Thank you Etsy for providing me with a wonderful distraction.
Robotic Love by:
Price: $3
For all of you that have a cute and quirky sense of humor like me this is the perfect card to give or recieve for Valentines Day! What a cute little robot! I love the craftsmanship on this too because you can tell a lot of work went into it and inevitably when I try to make a Valentines Day card I put in a lot of work and ends up looking like a 5 year old made it (though my fiance still has the Valentines Day card I made him last year... and every letter/card I've ever written him!). My fiance has this amazing ability to pick the perfect card for every occasion too so I need something cool. This is such an amazing deal for $3, especially because the really super cheesey awful ones at the store are like $4-6. And they don't have robots.

Lime Margarita Lip Balm Oval Tube by:
Price: $3.50
First off. FINALLY! Someone designed their tube to be oval so if you put it down it won't roll away and find a hiding spot where you won't find it! Second. Can ANYONE say no to a scent like Lime Margarita? That sounds amazingly delicious! This lip balm is made with amazing ingredients too like jojoba oil, cocoa butter, unrefined shea butter. If you buy this anywhere else it would be an $8-10 lip balm. Granted I have not tried this myself yet but when I actually get money I fully intend to... because I REALLY want some!!! Look so good...

Orange Lotus Throw Pillow by:
Price: $20
I think orange is an underutilized color when it comes to interior design. I'm not saying douse your walls in dark orange paint but the right shade in a small amount can make a lovely accent to a room. Like this pillow. Imagine it on a nice white leather couch with plain beige throwpillows.. then this, and POW! Your room goes from bland to glamourous for $20. Honestly, if you take a second to be daring with a little bit of color it really does you some good. And I simply adore the embroidery on this pillow. It is beautiful!

Repurposed Ornate Frame Cork Board by:
Price: $24
I don't know about everyone else but I have notes to myself everywhere. I keep a constant supply of sticky notes and they cover a good portion of my house on a daily basis but then I find myself not being able to locate them and I have to write things on note cards and they don't stick to things so they get lost. I really need a cork board but I've always thought they were ugly but THIS one is so awesome!!!!! The bold color, the ornate frame. Thats a cork board that can be displayed as art and not just there for function. Love love love love love love it! I've been looking for one of these!


And Etsy has gone offline for a  few minutes. I guess they are having some technical difficulties so for right now I'm going to stop here.

Leave me comments and let me know what you like! Happy Etsying Darlings!
