I am an Etsy Virgin!

Moms, I am seeking your help. I am admittedly an Etsy virgin. Over the years I have heard so many wonderful things about but have not had the honor yet of buying anything. I haven't really had a reason to until now and I would love to hear from you. I have read so many of your blogs and seen all of your adorable babies with their monthly onesies, cute bows, hats and other adorable baby wear. Please recommend your favorite Etsy sellers for baby gear!!! I went on their website just to briefly check things out and right away I was blown away by all of their creative sellers. I have been wanting to get her name spelled out in pink and green letters hanging over her crib with ribbon and these are just so cute. If this is any indication of what this website has to offer, my debit card is in big trouble.

I am just speechless over this baby pink tutu:

My inner organizational freak is loving these:

Beyond cute:

She will be needing one of these for Christmas, I can see it now..."Jillian":

Take care,


  1. gah. LOVE etsy. I am also in trouble. I keep finding the cutest nursery mobiles I want. SO . BAD.

  2. I've had quite the luck with etsy, and i'd love to share my finds..

    If you love ruffles as much as I do, you need to check out Sherbet baby
    They have monogrammed bloomers, some onesies, and the cutest ruffled bloomers!

    As far as hairbows, this lady is awesome to work with! We've ordered some for my little sisters and they have held up so well. Not to mention she is very affordable and a sweetheart to work with!
    To Sweet Pea From Me

    As for tutus! If you want a cute tutu and want it custom made I def. recommend DrinaCat. She made us the cutest tutus in very short notice and didn't even charge extra! Plus they are really easy to keep up with a very durable! Try trampolines and 5 year olds!

    As far as other designers its up to you and your personal style. I would advise you to look at similar styles and search different designers. You can find good deals if you look hard enough. A lot of designers put sales on a lot of their items and you can often catch them at a steal.

    Good Luck on Etsy Shopping! It's my guilty pleasure!!
    If you have questions, please don't hesitate to email me!


  3. Those finds are so cute! I wanted to let you know that I've given you a blog award!

  4. I have a visit over there but its down for maintenance.

  5. I've never ordered "baby" items from there but I'm constantly browsing for things I will "have to have" when it's my turn! I love everything you posted. Did you decide on the name Jillian? I just LOOOOVE IT!

  6. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE etsy! Very dangerous, especially having a girl!
    I have gotten my girls bows from bowsbydawn & ellebows. I have also gotten them tutus & shirts from DrinaCat.
    I actually just opened my own etsy shop a couple of weeks ago called MKL Designs. If you need Birth Announcements, Shower Invites or Holiday Photo Cards, check out my new etsy shop:
