a few of my favorites...

So when I joined Etsy in March, I had no idea about the chat rooms or forums. I barely knew enough to tag my items and it took a couple weeks to figure out that relisting really helps :) Once I discovered the chat rooms, I was able to branch out, meet a lot of fun people and discover tons of new stuff...shops, people, ideas, art forms, you name it. I wanted to take a moment to highlight some people I have met, and who are great at what they do as well as super nice people.

The first person I 'met' was in the forums, and it didn't take me long to realize why she's made it on Etsy for so long. A super nice chick who always had a kind word and offered me tons of advice, her name is HempLady4u. I can testify to the awesome-ness of her work, as I have a couple pieces myself! You can check out her store here: HempLady4u.etsy.com

I happened to be in an FS chat one night, and ran across a chick I call...Nic :) She makes awesome gift tags, greeting cards, invitations, you name it...It didn't take long for me to enlist her help with some packaging for my soap & scrubs, and through the course of that, we became friends...You can check out Nic's store here: ambientgirldesigns.etsy.com

I was looking for some awesome crocheted items to package with my soap for an upcoming craft fair, and at a super-low price. I received lots of great offers, but just couldn't find anything in my price range. HempLady suggested someone she new, and I quickly accepted an offer from LaneesCrochet. I must tell you, she does awesome, quality work and is a pleasure to work with. You can check out her store here: LaneesCrochet.etsy.com

Once again, this guy is a find...I ran across him in an FS chat, and just fell in love with his store. He has the coolest green crafts, and at super reasonable prices. I have ordered from him, and recently worked with him on a custom order as well...I can tell you, he's hands down one of the nicest people you can meet! The crazy crayons are a personal fave :) You can check out his store here: Ryanplz.etsy.com

This is just a tiny list of several people I've encountered...I'll add more soon...But I really wanted to shine a light on this awesome Etsians...so take a look and shop!!!
