Etsy Shopping…A New Addiction

Posted April 28, 2015 by Andi in Shopping / 6 Comments


Guys, I have a new addiction…Etsy Shopping! I can’t help it. Once upon a time I was mildly interested in the site. I would look at it and think they had some cool stuff. I would occasionally buy something as a gift for someone, but it has reached a whole new level. Etsy is now a scary addiction and I don’t want it to go away. 

I guess is started out simple enough. I wanted a custom stamp for my books and I found this seller and had this made.


From there it is all Hannah from So Obsessed With‘s fault. She took the blogging word by storm with her purchase of a Foxy Dori and we all became hooked at the fun, uniqueness of it and the potential to be able to organize out lives a little more.


Personally I ordered the Slim four strap in Dragon fruit with the straps in navy. I’m pretty much obsessed with it.foxy

So then naturally I needed to get some inserts for it that I could make my own so I found Yellow Paper House and bought 3 notebooks that I love.


And of course I need to make those 3 notebooks more my own so I took scrapbook paper I had around the house from my scrapbooking days and made them pretty. Although they are still a work in progress.


Then I needed a fun Paperclip to put inside my books. I did a lot of searching on this one and then I finally came across a really cute one that I went with. I may not be a coffee drinker but I do love tea so it works.


And my Foxy Dori was looking a little plain so I needed some kind of charm. I watched a YouTube video and I saw someone using a tassel they bought on Etsy so I went and checked it out. I ended up ordering lime green with a gold cap.


And finally that brings us to my newest purchase and the one I can’t wait to get the most. I mean as a book nerd it is epic and exciting and I ordered almost as soon as it was up. Say hello to my new Kindle cover that I got in purple.


So yes, I’m a Etsy Shopaholic and proud. Wonder what I will buy next???

Now tell me, do you buy all the things from Etsy?

  1. I love Etsy! I always find cute stuff on there, for presents and for inspiration for crafts of my own. Love the stuff you’ve picked out (especially that paper clip, which I kind of really want…)! I’ve totally gotten even MORE obsessed with Etsy because of my FoxyDori, so yes, let’s all blame Hannah 😉

  2. Etsy is such a black hole for me!!! I don’t even want to know how many etsy purchases I made in April. I LOVE my foxydori as well! I’m kind of wishing I had gotten a wide but oh well. I still love it! And then yes, I got some accessories for it too, of course! And then Frostbeard had a sale so of course I had to take advantage of it… plus craftedvan’s bookmarks are so cute! In short: I made too many etsy purchases. haha. I love that paperclip!! it’s so cute!
