{Etsy Love}

having recently become a huge fan of etsy, i thought i would devote a post to all things i have discovered from this fantastic site... created as a way for people to showcase their handmade items, crafts, and all things personal, i think it's a great way to help out friends and others' small businesses and snag some great presents for yourself {and for others of course, too since the holidays are right around the corner!}... hope you'll love these as much as i do!

1. introduced to me by my good friend candice, natalie and haley have created the most adorable gifts at Sweet Lemons Gifts.  they create personalized stationery and notecards, address labels, invitations, and the sweetest onesies and baby outfits you have ever seen. they have made quite a name for themself and i need to stock up on some holiday items pronto!!  to keep up with their business, you can follow their blog here

2. another find we stumbled upon (shoutout to candice again) is her friend carrie's handmade jewelry store. she was sweet enough to surprise me with some of these earrings for my birthday and all of our friends have jumped on the train to buy some of her gorgeous baubles. her prices are extremely reasonable and she takes custom orders, too! check her store out here

3. and finally, Kathy at Modern Polkadot Designs is responsible for my Southern Paperie blog layout... her designs are bright, cheerful, and fun, and she was a pleasure to work with. i sent her my ideas and had my blog design fully completed within a week-- she is fantastic and her prices are the best i have found! if you're in the market for a blog redo, make sure to remember her!

HAPPY MONDAY FRIENDS!!! Post from the weekend trip to Knox later today =)
