Easter’s coming – are you ready?

Good afternoon, dear reader! Today, while looking at my calendar, I realized that we are just a few short weeks away from Easter. For me, Easter is a celebration of faith…though I do still love pastel colored Easter eggs and fluffy bunnies. If you’re like me, and you didn’t realize that Easter was so soon, I thought I’d share some handmade Easter items with you to help get you ready.

SweetiePieCollection on Etsy

First off, who could resist this adorable Easter sign? I bet it would look so great on your front door! (And secondly, the bunny ears on the capital E? So. Cute.) Get it on Etsy, starting at $44.

TwineAndBraids on Etsy

These Easter eggs are too cute to hide! I love the pastel rainbow colors on each one, and this set of 6 would be great Easter decor when placed in a basket. Find them on Etsy for $20

WoodenFrameDecor on Etsy

If you have kids who argue over who has the bigger Easter basket (even when they’re the exact. same. size!), eliminate the arguments with these adorable, cotton-tailed Easter basket rabbit tags. You can personalize the size and the font..though they’ll be cute no matter what you pick. Find them on Etsy, starting at $4.46

BluefishMill on Etsy

I really love the detail on this metal sign…and of course, the message. It’s treated with a durable gold powder finish, and measures 16″ tall by 10″ wide. Find it on Etsy for $29.95!

SunflowerTeesCo on Etsy

Finally, get in the spirit with this colorful Easter shirt! It’s available in sizes for all ages, and has plenty of color options for the shirt to choose from. Find it on Etsy, starting at $13.52.

Are you feeling more prepared for Easter? Are you ready to bust out the Easter eggs and decorate? Let me know in the comments below!

Gardening Finds

When you think of Etsy, you don’t always think of gardening…right? However, you’d be surprised at the number of handmade gardening finds available for sale. Planters, tools, and (my absolute favorite) seeds are just a few options.

I’m in the process of planning my vegetable garden for this year, and while I probably (okay, definitely) have all the seeds and supplies I’ll need, I couldn’t help but browse online for more. Here’s a couple of my favorites…

Reclaimed Wood Planter Box by PiccadillyPrairie on Etsy.

Heirloom Rainbow Carrot Seeds by SmartSeedsEmporium on Etsy.

Hand Forged Garden Tool by Fisher Blacksmithing on Etsy.

I’d also like to link to a couple of DIY projects I found that I think you’ll enjoy….After all, we’re here to get crafty together. 🙂

Handmade Wooden Cutting Boards

I was recently browsing pictures from our local farmer’s market’s opening day, and I noticed a table with handmade wooden cutting boards in the background. I am FASCINATED with them! I’ve always wanted to be able to make something so precise, so intricate…though if I did make myself one, I don’t think I’d be able to use it because I’d be afraid of messing it up 🙂 
So, for today’s post, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some handmade cutting boards on Etsy. Even if you don’t want to purchase one for yourself, I think that they would really make a great wedding present or housewarming gift.
Elephant Cutting Board/ Maple Cutting Board/ Animal Cutting Board/ Walnut Cutting Board/ Wooden Cutting Board/ Elephant Chopping Block/ 
Made with maple and walnut, this adorable striped elephant is 14 inches by 12 inches, and 1 inch thick.
I just love how this oak cutting board is staged for the photo – it really makes you want to roll your sleeves up and start cooking. Cooking can be such a relaxing hobby if you don’t take it too seriously!
Edge Grain Cutting Board, Bread Board, Carving Board, Cheese Board, Wooden Cutting Board, Bread Knife 
I really love the handle and the variety of hardwood used in this cutting board!
When my sister-in-law got married, my husband and I purchased a personalized cutting board for her & her new husband. It was beautiful! Personalizing gifts is such a great way to add a little extra thought into the presents you buy.
Whale Shaped Wooden Cutting Board - Handmade Cutting Board - Large Cutting Board - Wood Cutting Board 
Thar she blows! This whale shaped cutting board is made from yellow birch hardwood, and is such a fun way to add a little whimsy to your kitchen.
Which of these was your favorite? Is there a cutting board on Etsy that you love that you feel I should have featured? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time, stay crafty & buy handmade!

Keeping It Green for St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect excuse to wear bright, vibrant shades of green – though, in my opinion, you don’t need an excuse 🙂 Since I love focusing on handmade items, I thought I’d feature some apparel and accessories for the whole family from Etsy sellers.
Emerald Dress, Emerald Flare Dress, Green Dress, Green Flare Dress, Swirl Dress, Green Swirl Dress, Abstract Dress, Abstract Flare Dress

Back to School: Kids’ Clothes

In just a few short weeks, our local schools will start their fall semester. Some kids I’ve talked to are, understandably, displeased that summer is almost over…while two of my favorite munchkins are super excited to go back to school. (I think it might have something to do with the fact that they’re both straight A students, and love learning.)
So, in the spirit of the season, I’ve decided to publish a series on cute & affordable back to school items for kids. Most of the items I’m including are handmade, but there are some great deals from non-handmade sources that I’ll be including as well.

There’s not a magical formula to success; success takes a lot of hard work. But there are resources, tips, and tricks online that can give you a lot of help. There’s a new resource that I am SUPER excited about! Check out The Handmade Sellers Magazine! Created by four former Etsy sellers, The Handmade Seller Magazine launches in October and will feature columns by guest experts, tips & tricks for selling, and much more for many online selling venues.

Covering several topics, like finding the right audience for your items, The Handmade Seller Magazine is offering a special pre-launch price of $1.99 per month!

Psyched To Sell Crafts

Getting started selling your crafts can be hard; there are a lot of venues out there available, and not just online. Farmer’s markets, co-ops, craft shows, etc. How do you know which one suits you?
Check out PsychedToSellCrafts.com! Psyched To Sell Crafts offers a quiz for $9.99 that helps you determine what selling venues you’ll be most successful at, and is planning on offering courses in the near future on strength-based marketing. The quiz is professionally developed, and offers results based in the introvert/extrovert sociability scale as well as over 80 pages of great tips & information. 
I decided to take the quiz so I could tell y’all about it, and I was very pleased. I found it to be comprehensive and really helpful – and also very true. For example, it correctly identified me as a mild introvert who likes to plan ahead…and if you knew me personally, you’d know how much I LOVE to plan ahead! (Maybe a little too much, sometimes). 
Psyched To Sell Crafts is also offering a FREE report on throwing a successful home party! You can find the report here. PsychedToSellCrafts.com is also running a contest for people who feature them on their blog! Check it out here.
And, unlike some other websites, Psyched To Sell Crafts focuses on your positives & strengths – not your weaknesses. Playing up your strengths is a great way to get ahead; not just personally, but professionally. Owner Reggie has always focused on bringing out the best in people, and loves setting them up for success. 
So, what’s CraftyGirl’s final verdict on Psyched To Sell Crafts? I think that it’s definitely worth a try! For only $9.99, getting a comprehensive quiz with pages and pages of support is more than worth it! 
Make sure to check out PsychedToSellCrafts.com and if you have any questions, feel free to contact Reggie!

Meet Joshua Clukey, owner of JcLeathercraft. Based in Georgetown, Delaware, Joshua creates handcrafted leather goods, from the minimalistic guitar picks to the elegantly stitched Leather Bible CoverJoshua started making his handcrafted leather products when he realized how cheaply made retail leather products were.
