      With less than two weeks to go until we depart for our destination wedding, I just wanted to share my favourite Etsy purchases with you all from the following fine artisans:

       

      PALOMASNEST created our ceramic ring bowl, my bouquet charm, the mini monogram charm for my FI's bout, and mini charms for our parents' bout and corsages.

      WOODANDGLASS created our personalized glass swizzle sticks that will be in our signature drink served at the rehearsal dinner.

      Our custom made instant photo guest book was created by THEHANDMADEBOUTIQUE.  I asked that the paper monogram on the front cover be left off to allow me to attach an engraved metal plate.

      LILAFRANCES created an amazing "MRS" wire hanger for me.

       

      And finally, in lieu of a card for my FI on our wedding day, I had QUOTESANDNOTES create this personalized mini book for me to write in and give.

      I felt it was important to acknowledge these amazingly talented folks, especially as I am in the midst of dealing with two other very disappointing Etsy purchases : (

            Thanks!!!  I can't wait to show friends and family and incorporate everything into our special week : )

             

            I certainly learned a valuable lesson...if what you are after from an etsy seller differs in ANY way from work/samples they showcase on their site...whether it's colour, shape, size, etc., request a mid-point communication/photo share to ensure that you're both on the same page!!!  I realize they're all busy, but it wouldn't take much time on their part to do this...rather than taking the attitude, "if you don't hear from us, assume everything is going well."  Believe me, it would save a whole lot of time, headache and heartache on both ends...

              Hi Girls! Check out http://www.etsy.com/shop/leahrhood - This girl does custom made orders for weddings, special events, & gifts. Her store has many items - alot geared towards an antique/vintage style. But everything is beautiful, especially the jewelry! I have bought some earrings & necklaces that came so nicely packaged & were exactly as pictured! Highly recommended!!!

                I just wanted to share that this morning I discovered tophatter. It is an online auction by etsy sellers. I went on there to try to win a house decor item, which went for way more than I could pay, BUT I did buy 3 definitely underpriced jewelry, all great for the wedding, or bm gifts, or maybe just presents for myself! I got a beach charm bracelet, regularly priced for just under 30, for 12, and earrings also for 12 (regular price 18), and a seaglass necklace for 20 (regular I think was 24.) When I get pictures, I will post them.

                Anyway, it is a great way to get some items for different prices. Two of the items I bought also had free shipping to Canada; when their shops normally do not, and the other item had reduced shipping. The sellers often seem to be 'in the room' as well, if you have questions or anything.

                Anyway, just wanted to share. Kind of annoyed that I found this... I lack restraint and willpower. Maybe I need a bigger house?
