Hump Day Distraction - Etsy.com

Consider this fair warning, this site is extremely addictive. I started with unique Christmas presents, moved quickly on to personalized baby gifts and most recently commissioned custom coat hooks.
What is this site of wonders you ask?

Etsy.com – Your place to buy and sell all things handmade™.

The site is a collective of crafters selling everything and anything you can imagine.  Its really easy to search for items, plus they have fun features where you can see what was recently purchased (Pounce) or shop by colour (?!) You have to sign up to purchase, but not to browse, and can use Paypal. The coolest part – Alchemy - where you can solicit a custom item.

A few of my favorite, go-to etsy shops for special gifts:

babypop designs - custom super hero capes
primpedpaperie - anti-disney illustrations, can read more about her work on her website.
missprettypretty - custom playhouses
and the shop that delivered on my custom coat hooks katiepoterala

Don't blame me if you waste all your time on Etsy today, like I said, fair warning.
