CraftyGirl’s Featured Shop: LavaGifts

While creating a team treasury (that you can find here.) the other day on Etsy, I came across LavaGifts, a wonderful Etsy shop that creates custom, handmade wedding cake toppers and baby shower cake toppers. They are SO adorable! If I had known about LavaGifts when Alex and I were getting married, I would’ve loved to have purchased a topper from them (There’s still always the baby shower toppers though!). Owner Shauna embraces a wonderful mix of colors shapes, with her most popular design being the Lovebirds. Here are a few of her items that caught my eye:

Rustic Wedding Cake Topper - Ivory, Fuchsia, Aqua and Mint Green, Love Birds in Nest - Personalized Heart, Keepsake
Rustic Wedding Cake Topper – Love Birds in Nest, $80

Wedding Cake Topper Banner - ALWAYS AND FOREVER - Custom Phrase and Colors

Love Owls Wedding Cake Topper, Blue grey, Ivory and Grey, Custom Wood Stump, Bride and Groom Keepsake, Fully Custom

Until next time… Stay crafty!

MyMisi.com – Buy and Sell Handmade! (Sponsored Post)

Handmade, artisan products are getting bigger and better every day. Several marketplaces are available online to buy and sell handmade items, and their popularity is only growing. Today’s post focuses on MyMisi, an online marketplace for buying and selling handmade items such as jewelry, crocheted accessories, and more. “MISI” stands for “Make It, Sell It”, and the folks at MyMisi have made it their mission to bring quality, one of a kind handmade pieces to the online masses. With the success of Misi UK, it was decided to branch into the United States handmade community, and MyMisi was born.

As a buyer, you have wonderful perks: Being able to include your own flair of creativity in custom-made items, learning new crafts with purchased patterns, and being a part of a friendly and active community. You can even search for bargains and deals in their On Sale section!

There are also many perks to being a seller on MyMisi as well, including $0.20 listing fees, a small commission of 3% and listings lasting for 12 months, as opposed to some other sites’ shorter listing times. The best thing of all, in my opinion, is that they have Paypal as one of the payment options…so no matter whether you’re a buyer or a seller, you’ve got the safety of PayPal in your transaction!

Here are some of the items on MyMisi that I found interesting:

Whipped Sugar Scrub
Whipped Sugar Scrub, $10.95

Beautiful Baltic Amber Necklace and Earrings Set
Beautiful Baltic Amber Necklace and Earrings Set, $75.70

4 Christmas knitting patterns robin, snowman, santa bear
4 Christmas knitting patterns, $10

There are new items being added on MyMisi every day, and you never know what treasures you’ll find!

Until next time…stay crafty!
