Friday Favorites 10/30

I am on the prowl again for more cute gifts and fun stuff! Take a look at the fun Etsy treats that I have come across this week. One of my favorite Tradeaholics has a new design out...Polaroid 2010 Calendar - The Year in Polaroids. Too gorgeous to pass up! Jerseymaids - let me know if you want to trade!!! ;)
Cold weather has snuck up on me so I need to get my little ones prepared to bundle up. What do you think of this adorable elf hat from karleyskloset? Super cute right?! Not into stripes, there are a ton of others to choose from!
How sweet is this little minky dot and print elephant! My little one asked for a pink elephant for her bday and I could not find one anywhere...until now! Thank you LittleSideKick. Be sure to check out her cute hats and other toys.
On my quest to find fun felt play food I found this terrific learning toy by Heartfelt3, the cooking counting set! What a wonderful idea! Each cookie is embroidered with a number and it comes in a monogramed bad (with a cookie cutter!). I have already purchased this lovely so you will have to ask Heartfelt3 to make another one for you! :) Btw...she has them in fish for little boys (I bought that one too!)
Happy Etsy shopping everyone!

Trading Frenzy Loot!!!!

Hello, my name is Julie and I am a Tradeaholic. There, I said it. Now I get to show you all of the wonderful loot I aquired during Sunday's Trading Frenzy! Thank you to all of the Etsians who participated! It was a blast. If you are new to Etsy, I HIGHLY recommend that you join the trading team or just ask other shops if they would be interested in trading wares. It never hurts to ask!
MaddieBee123 is making the cutest ruffle bottom pants and Fleur de lis top for my little one. How precious are her outfits!!!!

PeculiarParchment is my go to shop when I need note cards. My staple order is always the 2x2 thank you note cards. Tons of designs! Check them out!

Beautiful and functional wristlet key fobs from TracyDesigns. Some will be gifts...but I am definitely keeping one for myself!

I have been eyeing vinyl decal shops since I joined Etsy b/c what a perfect way to add a little character to your home without spending an arm and a leg. I just hope my husband likes this monogram from HouseHoldWords as much as me ;)

My very first trade was with Skadoodles. Too cute!!!! Please check out her shop and all of the wonderful personalized t-shirts she can create.
I do not have pics of them yet, but will be sure to post the personalized ornaments that CrayonPrincess is handpainting for my girls. Please check out her shop and amazing skills
OH! !And I also traded for the gorgeous earrings from Leeya and the hilarious t-shirt from notyourmomsvinyl (list in Friday Favorites post). How lucky am I? I just hope everyone likes their jewelry as much as I like my goodies!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Please Support

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To show support, many Etsy sellers are donating some (or all) of their proceeds from sales to supporting the fight against breast cancer. Please check out shops that are supporting the cause. Pictured above: HowardAvenue (Custom Breast Cancer Awareness Camera Strap - Free Shippng! 100% of profits donated to S.G. Komen) and HeadFullofFeathers ($10 donation from the sale of this fascinator goes to Breakthrough - breast cancer charity - ).
My shop is supporting a cause near and dear to our heart. My husband's college friend Kristi lost her life to breast cancer this summer mere months after being diagnosed. She leaves behind three very young little girls (6, 3, and 11 months). Nothing will replace the loss of their mother, but we hope to help them carry on with positive memories and a successful future. ALL proceeds for earring sales go to college funds for Kristi's three young daughters. Julie Ellyn Designs and family will cover all costs of materials and shipping.
Please show your support.
