CraftyGirl's Featured Shop: CraftzByHand

I love finding one of a kind pieces on Etsy; it's so fun to see what creations Etsy sellers make & what ideas they come up with. A lot of one of a kind pieces are inspired out of need, or a desire to make something new out of something that most people would throw away. Etsy shop CraftzByHand creates one of a kind mosaic crosses from broken dishes (as well as offering original paintings). It's always fun to see different patterns and colors mixed together, and being able to reuse items that would normally be discarded is a great way to reduce the amount of waste that we, as a nation, produce. Owner Sandra Ames loves hunting for vintage plates to use. Here's my top 3 favorite picks from Etsy shop CraftzByHand:





Broken dishes Mosaic Cross, Brown, green, blue with embelishment 




Original Acrylic Painting of flowers, 10 x 8", yellow with blue background 




Broken dish mosaic cross in yellow with blue flower detail

CraftyGirl's Featured Shop: SneappersStudio

In cold weather, slippers are my go-to choice for padding around the house in. Warm & cozy, slippers are a great way to stay toasty...but often, when shopping for a new pair of slippers, you've got to sort through several pairs that are just...well, not that stylish. If you're crafty (or know someone who can be crafty for you!), Etsy shop SneappersStudio has crochet slipper patterns that you're going to fall in love with. Owner Xenia offers instant download crochet patterns, in English and French, inspired by popular sneakers. Now that's one way to wear your sneakers to bed! :) December 14th will be the 2 year anniversary of SneappersStudio opening, and Xenia wanted me to mention that she'll be running a special promotion that day - the first two orders made on that day will be fully refunded and processed for FREE!
