Check out The Examiner today

Check out The Washington Examiner today, or click the image below to see it full size. Nearly a dozen Washington- and Baltimore-area Etsians were featured in a Valentine's Day gift guide.

It was inspired in large part by this post from November.

Board No. 131 - Hanukkah's Almost Here!

I just realized that Hanukkah is super early this year! Thankfully it is right days so I still have time to do my shopping and mail cards/presents before it looks "late." Here's some festive Hanukkah items if you haven't bought them yet because, like me, you didn't look at a calendar.

Top row: Hanukkah Menorah Judaic Candleholder from celestewelch; Mod Menorah Happy Hanukkah Cards from manvsgeorge; Happy whatever you celebrate Print from guydeckerstudio
Middle row: Dreidel Girl Hanukkah Cards from ReuseFirst; Il Veliero Green Candelabrum from StilNovoDesign; Hanukkah Garland Felt Dreidels and Stars of David from hilarysarobot
Bottom row: So Much Funakka Hanukkah Card from MerciBlehBleh; Hanukkah Festival Of Lights Printable Cupcake Topper and Wrapper Set from PaperScissorsCake; Hannukah Menorah from EchoLine

Board No. 130 - Hanukkah Wish List

Since my family does a Secret Santa gift exchange (I know, I said Hanukkah above but we're a mixed family) and we're supposed to stay around $35, I am doing this for whoever my Secret Santa is (or for my mom to forward along...) with all the things I am loving right now on Etsy for under $35:

Top row: Funky Vintage White Blue Stripes Dress from lunlalunla; Beach Glass Pottery Necklace from BeachGlassGems; Pair of Decorative Toss Pillow Covers from FestiveHomeDecor; Elephant Dream Print from ybryksenkova
Middle row: Hand Painted Noodle Bowl from yevgenia; World Map Linocut Print from thebigharumph; Elephant on Sterling Silver from buysomelove; Recycled Sea Glass Necklace from ReneeLoughlin

Bottom row: Antique Brass Camera Pendant Necklace from morikaty; Orbit Necklace from DrCraze; OHIO, The Heart of It All Print from LilBurritos; Wood Grain Hand Painted Doormat from damngooddoormats

It's funny that my first several picks for this post were necklaces since I wear the same necklace almost every day. Maybe my subconscious is telling me that I need to replace it since it's missing a couple stones - and these are all nice, suitable alternatives for daily wear. Also, it seems I am feeling a little adventurous and wild with all the lovely animal prints!
