Then again, you’re probably not going to become enamored by the offerings at Office Max. These notebooks from Etsy seller Wonting NYC are the perfect compromise. Simple yet cute designs adorn the kraft paper covers. Inside, you’ll…

Etsy Find Of The Week: Zulasurfing Crystal Rings

For the most part, raw crystal jewelry can stay where it is now: in between the new age-y mystical books and bundles of sage. And no, we don’t need any smoky quartz to balance our sex chakras, thank you very much. What we do need, however, are some of the goods from Zulasurfing’s Etsy shop.

Etsy Find: Jenny Lee Fowler Leaf Silhouettes

It’s not often that someone can recreate something from the past in a modern way that’s completely covetable. (We can think of a few chains that attempt this all the time, and fail.) Jenny Lee Fowler, however, has managed to take the art of the Victorian silhouette and transpose it in a way that’s not…

Questionable Or Badass: Bones Of Leather Glove

Do bones of leather flock together? Just ask the folks from celebrated fashion blog, Kingdom of Style, who collaborated with a leather expert to dream up with these skeleton gloves. They were created as an affordable response to the slightly bizarre and insanely overpriced ($27,734!!!) Delfina Delettrex skeleton cuff/diamond bracelet that made the rounds on

Etsy: A “Female Ghetto” For The Creative & Crafty?

Over at Double X, Sara Mosle initially sings the praises of popular online indie retailer, but then points out a problem. “There are virtually no male sellers on Etsy. If the site is such a great way for anyone to market handmade goods online, then why is it such a female ghetto?”

For When The Dress Code Says “Cats In Ties”

A fancy feline is the height of sophistication when entertaining, which is whey we’re bummed these purr-ty ties for cats have sold out on Etsy.

“This kitty does NOT look happy,” our sister wrote in an email. That’s because the tie isn’t tied in a proper Windsor knot. Duh.

Project Runway’s Leanne Marshall Sells Her Wares On Etsy

We’ve always known that “Project Runway” contestant Leanne makes beautiful clothes, so our decision to support Leanne on this week’s season finale was solidified when we discovered she has an Etsy shop where she has been vending her girly Leanimal line of clothes since last summer. Unfortunately, none of her designs are available right now…

Crave: Motivational Posters

Posters with inspirational photos and quotes about “success” and “teamwork” don’t make us want to work any harder. No, they just make us think “Who designed this ugly poster?” and “Can’t my dentist hang something more attractive in his waiting room?” Yes, some of us need art that features more direct encouragement (and looks prettier),…

There’s something very refined and stylish about the peacock, isn’t there? Check the ten picks, after the jump.

Bitchin’ Stitchin’ Saves Lives

Crafting is the hobby du jour for ladies — myself and my homemade superhero cape included. While I think my cool cape gives me the appearance that I can save lives, Shannon Gerard’s “Boobs and Dinks” actually do just that. Every three minutes a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with breast cancer, which mea…
