I am leaving Troy for my new-found

I know many of you are already well-acquainted with this site, but I have recently taken a fond interest in it. It is basically e-bay for all things handmade. Some of my favorite searches have been for baby items, but there is so much more. One could really spend hours looking for the perfect item.

Here are three of my favorites from the night:

Jot it Down - a little shop that sells lists galore. I am a compulsive list-maker. Probably because I don't usually accomplish what's on my list, so I have to keep making more of them. Here is a list that would really suit my needs. This little shop also sells personalized pads of paper (great gifts), grocery lists, meal planners, and even an information sheet for your babysitter.

These hand-knit hats for kids. So darling. My boy has a huge noggin so it's always good to find something to top it with. I am sure my girl will be NO different.

and what? Put the brakes on. what in Sam Hill are these things? I guess somebody is taking the term "going green" to the extreme. baby lucy will NOT be adorned in these top ramen left-overs. I wonder if they come with the scent? Like, could you choose beef, shrimp, pork or chicken?

If you have a favorite etsy shop, I would love to know about it!

I would absolutely go with the beef flavored shoes!


some people sure take creativity to the next level I guess. nice find.

Those shoes are...hmmm. I'm just glad you don't like them either.

I love the list though. I'm a list maker too! I wish I had cute little kid (s - soon) to deck out in those awesome hats! I love the dresses you found for the littl girl at the thrift store. I too am addicted to sorting through rich people's throw outs. SCORE!

I am Dani, the owner of Jot It Down, and I work for Quintin Smith a friend of yours. He saw your post and sent me the link he thought it was so funny! Thanks for the plug and the compliments! Email me your favorite and I will get it in the mail right away! Thanks again!

Hi. I check in every so often, because I like to read your blog. I'm Adrienne's cousin (if that makes my lurking any less freaky, which I'm not sure about).

Good luck with your impending arrival! I always swell to the size of Shamu, so I feel your pain.

I LOVE Etsy! Cute stuff! I can't even believe that you only have 26 days left! That is CRAZY! Can't wait to see your new little GIRL!!!!

I thought I would drop in and say hi! I went to the "Oh Sweet Sadie" Craft fair last week. It was amazing. She just cleared out her house and had it there. There is a really cute store on etsy that sells little girls clothes called "willarie". Good luck with the baby.

Those shoes are hilarious! I saw those cute hats in my Parents magazine. Too cute!

Oler Family said...

I love those hats! And that planner is really cute too. Good finds,I think you've got me hooked!

Monica said...

Thanks for sharing! I got on and ordered a cute handmade checkbook cover. I have wanted to ditch my vinyl one forever! THANKS!

I wouldn't let my doctor check me for dilation on Wednesday. NO WAY! With three weeks left to go, he has no business up there. Plus, I'll let him know when I'm in labor and good and ready for probing. Sorry Troy, I know talk like this makes you sick to your stomach. Ali, you should be proud of you effacement. That is seriously impressive. Really, if you've got that out of the way, it's all icing from here.
