This is a chance to show off my cute little girl (who turned two months this past Sunday), but it's also a review of a very cool product I found on Etsy.

For those who have never visited Etsy, you MUST and right NOW! You will thank me and also hate me for such an addiction!

Etsy is a site where people can sell their handmade wares. As for what types of handmade things… omigoodness you can find ANYTHING. Jewelry, clothing, food, art, I get my laundry detergent from there, I have found some diapering products on there and I got these adorable stickers to track Emerson's birthdays.

These are temporary stickers that can be placed on one of her tee shirts or onesies just to take the birthday picture. These are created by the Etsy shop called PickySticky.

PickySticky offers these cute stickers in colors for girls, for boys, for surprise gender.

n551383371 1511820 5533Also offered are stickers for years (older kids), for expecting women (what week that baby bump is – wish I knew about these when I was pregnant), and my favorite idea – monthly stickers! Get the kids together and put stickers of the month on them and use these photos for one of those custom calendars from places like Snapfish! What a perfect gift for grandparents or to show off your brood at the office!

I keep being asked about where I got these birthday tee shirts. So many times, I figured I should write about it here. And then when I tell people about Etsy, most people have not heard about it. Well gosh, these are two pretty awesome things so I just HAD to share!!!

What are your favorite Etsy shops?

    I found out about Etsy over a year ago, and started my own shop http://www.sweetwords.etsy.com

    I’m also addicted to shopping through all my favorite shops, my hubby jokes that he never sees the income I make, cuz I spend it so fast… hehe… when you live in the country, online shopping becomes much simpilar!!

    Aww cute, I love ETSY and have got loads of Charlotte’s Diapers from there. NorthernBaby make beautiful soft organic bamboo fitted dipes, as well as washclothes from the same fabric. Mamabear babywear makes lovely moby style wraps, as well as nice diapers and covers.

    Oh my god – she’s beautiful! So expressive! Bless her.

    I tend to get lost on Etsy. If I know what I’m and who from I’m ok, but beyond that I just get irritated by how much great stuff there is that I can’t afford!

    Emersons eye brows are fabulous – lol. She is a lucky girl and that air punch says she knows it too!

    Those stickers are awesome! We started using them for our 4-month photos. We’ll start with 1 with our next little one.

    MiChiMa
    Chenille Chef

    I am addicted to Etsy and told my husband he had to get me something from there for last Christmas or I’d cry (he complied.) We even got little finger puppet stocking stuffers from this seller (abbeychristine) for our one year old son:

    This seller also does a neat little ABC poster that I put in a simple IKEA frame for my toddler. I don’t know, I like it a lot: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=51653

    So really, it’s hard to pick a fave. I love it all!

    Aw! Those stickers are so cute!

    I’m too young to have a baby right now [18 and in college does not a mommy make] but my older sister is currently pregnant with her first child [not to mention the first grandchild, great-grandchild, etc] and so I have been desperately been looking for good, and unique, gifts to give her. You always have some awesome ideas!

    By the way, your little girl is so cute!

    Every time I read your blog I wish I had been pregnant and with a newborn the same time as you so you could inspire me to not look so frumpy! 🙂 But my littlest one is about 16 months older than yours.

    I LOVE those stickers! What a great idea! If I ever have another, I’m keeping those in mind!

    I’m hooked on Snarky cards over at Etsy. They are hilarious and I kick myself almost every day for not coming up with the idea myself.
