I’m protesting winter!

We received 15″ of new snow yesterday morning.  This morning when I woke up, the temp was hovering around zero degrees and with the wind gusts felt like 10 below.   I am SO over winter… I need spring to come fast!!

I have decided to protest winter, in hopes it will feel unwelcome and leave.  Or that spring will get a boost of confidence and beat the crap out of old man winter.  Who’s with me?


Four Fabulous Friday Finds 2-18

This weeks Friday finds are quirky and original – my favorite kind!

I think every man should be interchangeable like this (just kidding, honey… calm down!).  These “Make Your Own Man” Interchangeable Cubes are the creation of Sandra Etrovic (http://www.etsy.com/shop/SandraEterovic).  They are made from prints of her own original illustrations and are simply adorable!


These Mug Shot greeting cards crack me up!  I just love the look on the cats face.  Kate Funk (http://www.etsy.com/shop/katefunk) is behind these hilarious cards – along with many others featuring her cute kitty, AC.  I know of a few dogs that may need to be processed into central booking!! 

Okay, these are simply adorable.  Check out Mibo (http://www.etsy.com/shop/mibostudio)  downloadable, do-it-yourself art.  The Wild Bunch (pictured here) is a collection of 4 make-them-yourself paper animals.  Fun for kids and adults!!

Okay, so I have a soft-spot for recycled / repurposed art.  This gorgeous scarf by Malam (http://www.etsy.com/shop/malam) is made from recycled vintage mail bags.  Just one word… AWESOME!!

Four Fabulous Friday Finds

I have decided that I am going to start a new feature on Creativityismessy’s Blog called “Four Fabulous Friday Finds”.  Each Friday (hopefully), I will be selecting 4 items from Etsy that I found and am in love with at that moment.

Here is the first installment….

I’m loving big, warm cowls at the moment.  This one from KnitFrekkles looks so cozy and beautiful!



This little owl is so adorable!  You can find this and many others in the shop of HandyMaiden.



I seriously think I need several of these!  SimpleShapes has some amazing wall decals – check them out!



I am constantly writing down ideas and inspiration on sticky notes, which I end up losing half the time.  I think these handy-dandy notebooks by Katie Blair Designs are cute and functional!  And she has different designs and colors!
