I fall in love often...on Etsy. Start with the plethora of mind blowing creations and add to that my utter lack of self control (stop looking at me cookies). And you have, tadaa, a handmade shopaholic.
Enter LovelySquid. This fabulous textile artist is, gasp, my neighbor! That's right kids, I'm in trouble.
The "shop local" option on Etsy allows you to see what poppin' in your neighborhood. Guess what? My hood is poppin'! LovelySquid lives here. MaryEllen's beautiful scarves are not only colorful and comfy but are eco chic to boot. All of her one of a kind scarves are made from upcycled and recycled fabrics. Oh boy.. I'm in love...again.
