We’re hot off the heels of Christmas, but I want to share one of my favorite places to shop for gifts year round. The year is full of birthdays, anniversaries, graduation is coming up in May, and of course the congratulatory gifts for family, friends, and colleagues. Do you fall in a gift giving rut? I do!

Throughout the year I scroll through Etsy and if anything catches my eye I’ll “favorite” it for future reference. Do you shop on Etsy? I started shopping there in 2010 when it was truly an online arts and craft fair. Now I feel it has become a mix of small shops run by individuals and a lot of larger companies using it as another venue for sales. Which disappoints me a little because I like to “shop small” when I can.

Here are some Etsy purchases I gifted in the past. I would show you some recent finds, but people who may be receiving them read my blog đŸ˜‰

Herb Garden Plant Markers (Buy an herb garden starter kit here.)
Grammar Police Poster

Leather Luggage Tag
Tea Towels:   Left   Right

What are some of your unique Etsy finds? 

Until next post…xoxo Becca

Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 37

Favorite Pin Friday on a Saturday? Yeah well I’m a slacker and was super busy this week. I work in higher education which means the students are back on campus to start the semester. They kept me busy!!!! Guess what, the first week of class is over and we can get back to our regularly scheduled program.

Do you like donuts? I like donuts! Why not have a DIY donut bar at your next event? A committee I’m on thought it would be a fun breakfast feature at an upcoming event. Think outside the box and fun things will happen.




Would you top your own donut? Until next post…xoxo Becca
