Lots and lots of pretty things

Etsys of the Week, #2

I die a little when I see this, because it's just outrageously cute. If I ever have a little girl, I'm going to buy hats from this seller.

I'm starting to panic a little bit about Pink's hair accessory swap ...the due date is coming up soon, and I've never made any hair accessories -- and certainly not with scrapbooking materials. I DO have a vision of what I want to do, but there are two major drawbacks here: 1)it will be time-consuming and 2) it will be expensive.

In anticipation of said creating, I found multiple headbands (which I think I will do in lieu of barrettes) that I love; I've never worn anything like this before, but I totally will. I might even buy it. I have a special place in my heart for frilly, super-girly apparel and accessories. I can't help it.

I doubt I could make this one, but it's certainly polished and more likely to appeal to a group of people about whom I know very little (when it comes to hair accessory preference, that is).

This grayish brown I truly love . . . what I want to do is similar (though not in color). This seller also has these woodland sprite/fairy looking bands. I'm sold.

And then there are the double and triple metal/jeweled bands that are popping up everywhere (Anthropologie has a few gorgeous ones). I dig 'em. I will not be making double or triple bands, however.

I think that's it for now. Am slammed buy a body of papers washing over and drowning me. I want to post pictures of the cards we made in Ally's card class, but I suppose this will have to wait . . .sigh.

Etsy Stores of the Week

It's no secret I'm in love with Etsy. I don't often buy things, but I do when I can, and I could spend countless hours browsing rather than doing work. While I've been pretty good at not procrastinating lately, I figure Sunday night is a good time to get in a bit of relaxation and pine over lovelies I want and share them with you. This week? It's these necklaces.

And this one. And, uh, this one, too. Then there's this headband . . . and this one.

And for $25, this is an adorable Halloween scrap kit: 18 papers, Thickers, Sassafrass . . . a kit like this from a kit club would easily be $40 and over. I think I have enough Halloween stuff, but . . . she has a few others (a bit too cutesy for my taste, but still cute enough . . . and cheap). Ah, well. It's back to the grindstone around these parts.

Girls at the Pink . . .

So I didn't take this photo -- Teri did -- but still. I edited it for a page I'm doing for Gloria's challenge blog . . . trying to figure out which version I want to use.

Some Pages for Reed's "Girly" Book . . .

Don't use pink a lot, but why not? I'm not into gender-specific coloring, so here it is. ***Ahem. So this page needs some serious editing, clearly. Back later for that one.

A favorite . . .

I didn't send this one to the design call over at Pink Ninjas, but I thought about it.
Ah, well. What can you do?
