woohoo, a prize!
I enjoy checking out the contests and give-aways of the etsy street teams. I often find shops and items I wouldn't have seen otherwise. I got a great package in the mail a few days ago from the Etsy Artists of Color street team. It included a darling spring magnet from gingerlime and a pair of crocheted earrings from BklynMoMos. The earrings are HUGE - I admit I wouldn't have chosen a pair that big for myself, and that just goes to show what I know, because I love them. Seriously, they're perfect - they weigh almost nothing, and I feel like a disco diva with them on. They have quickly earned their place as my favorite pair of earrings, in a tie for first place with the polymer clay stakes earrings by deltafine.
Both BklynMoMos and Gingerlime have some wonderful items for sale - both shops gave me spontaneous big smiles. My favs:
BklynMoMos' yellow skirt, oh my goodness, this is so fabulous. This woman takes crochet to cool places I would have never thought of! And the best part is the name: Full Figured Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Skirt.
And gingerlime's ACEOS. (Click the photos to go to the etsy listings.) How wonderful are these!
Thanks, Artists of Color street team!
