It's been a few weeks since we have done a Etsy Finds but you asked and it's back! I think etsy changing its look yesterday got me inspired to be on the prowl again for amazing one of the kind items. Hope you enjoy and let us know in the comments if we should keep up with etsy finds every Friday. We love feedback!Read More
Wedding season is in full swing which means there are a lot of wedding showers coming up. Can you believe I have five weddings to attend this summer....yes FIVE! I am at the age where all of my friends are getting married. Good thing I love weddings!
This past weekend one of my best friends since high school had a wedding shower at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA. This was one of the best showers I had ever been to! It was so amazing that in the coming weeks I will be dedicating a whole post to it.Read More
I tend to go through phases with my crafting obsessions…Remember earlier this year when I was incorporating maps into all of my projects? Well I have found an obsession that has actually stayed. Scrappy tape! When you discover a great supply you just want to shout it from the rooftop or in this case my blog!Read More
Happy Friday! I can't believe how fast this week went by. I think it is because I have just been so busy. May is going to be an incredibly busy month and I cannot wait to tell you all about it. Make sure to mark your calendar for May 7th! There may or may not be something in the works with two of my other favorite blog (hint...hint). Stop back to check it out. Also sign up for Weekend Craft's email newsletter, which will be launching next week, and you will never miss a thing!
Because it's Friday and because I love all things Etsy enjoy some of my favorite finds this week.Read More
Wow, where has April gone? How is Easter Sunday? This Spring has just been flying by! As I just got all of my Easter Cards out Monday I started thinking about Mother's Day. I thought this would be a great opportunity to start planning and also to show you some of my favorite Mother's Day Card Etsy finds.
So here is your official reminder! Mother's Day is May 11th! Less than a month away to start planning!Read More
It's beginning to feel a lot like Spring! The nice weather is back (for now fingers crossed), the birds are chirping, the crocuses are popping up and moods are lifting as we get out of our winter funk. I couldn't think of a better time to be inspired by spring. Here are some of my finds this week on Etsy! I hope you enjoy and discover some shops that you may not have stumbled upon before!Read More
Every once in a while I just come across a shop that I instantaneously fall in love with. Remember the Wheatfield shop or Crimson Crane Studios? Well it has happened again with illustrator Geraldine Adams. She is an amazing Parisian style illustrator that lives in San Jose, CA. Whats not to love about art inspired by french cuisine & wine. Enough said. I hope you enjoy her unique style as much as I do.Read More
I rarely promote my own etsy shop on here but we are coming into the busy invitation season for wedding showers and I have been churning out custom orders. I wanted to show on This Week's Etsy Finds some of my latest work. If you wander over to my shop Weekend Craft and like my style but don't see something you are looking for just ask. I love custom orders and some of my favorite invitations come from your ideas.Read More
Watch out etsy art world. Crimson Crane Studios is about to take you by storm. One of the most talented artist I know who happens to be on of my best friends is launching her etsy shop. Her illustration and painting style is playful, vibrant and has a sense of whimsy to it. She is actually the one who taught me how to watercolor, which I don't nearly do often enough anymore.Read More
With Earth day coming up Etsy has been featuring a reclaimed section and we all know how I feel about upcycling! I love that the movement is becoming embraced nationally. Here are some of my favorites that I have come across over the last couple of days.
And don't forget today is your last chance to enter the Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!Read More
If you're like me than you have way too much jewelry (mostly costume) and not enough storage. You spend half your time in the morning getting ready untangling necklaces and looking for the other earring. This Week's Etsy Finds are storage solutions that I have favorited over the past couple months. Stay until the end and see my own upcycled thrift store jewelry solution.Read More
I am so happy that it is Friday! What a whirl wind of a week. Between working, freelancing, gaining new clients and my etsy shop I haven't had a chance to breath or focus on Weekend Craft! I am so excited for this weekend and buckle down to work on my craft room (more wallpaper scraping and painting) and also to work on Sunday's give away post, which is all about love. Seems appropriate for February with Valentine's Day approaching.
With this week just being insane I needed a little motivation so it makes sense that this week's etsy finds are quotes. Hope you enjoy and find some new Etsy shops to love and admire!Read More

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching it's time to start scouring etsy for valentine's day cards. As this is not nor ever has been a favorite holiday of mine I do enjoy the getting cards in the mail especially if they are funny. Below are some of my favorites. Hope you enjoy and let's support handmade and artists this holiday season!Read More
Since my first day on etsy maybe even pinterest I have been obsessed with the Wheatfield Shop. I haven't actually made a purchase from them because I absolutely love everything and when I go to check out I cannot make a decision. Here are three that I have narrowed it down to. Let me know your thoughts in the comments!Read More
New year...new bedroom? I have been catching myself perusing etsy, overstock and wayfair lately always landing in the bedroom sections. This maybe a sign that it's time to redo my bedroom or at least gather some ideas for my next apartment.Read More
Having an etsy shop myself I find that I am constantly on etsy most of the day. Maybe even more than I am on Pinterest. These are a few finds for the week that have been put on my wishlist for the holidays.
It's always great to be able to support artist and handmade items during the holidays. Think of it as shopping "local" online, support small businesses.Read More
Two days later and I am still feeling the effects of Brimfield, achy legs and shoulders, but it was worth it! I am very excited about some of the items I got and have already started working on some new projects on Sunday.
Everytime I go to Brimfield I am always surprised by the array of prices. Some dealers are very high priced where others are very reasonably priced. It all depends where they are located in the market. My best advice is not to shop close to the street or at the beginning of the antique market. You want to spend most of your time in the back of the lots. That is where the deals are.Read More
