Wanna know a secret? I may have the cutest nieces in the whole world.
I know, don’t tell anyone, people get all huffy about it, but it’s true.
So, our little sweet cheeks (literally, look at them!) Andee just turned 1 in April and Andrew and I wanted to give her a truly special gift. I love etsy, I honestly think you can find unique, high quality, and handmade gifts from neat people.
I started poking around through etsy, and thought how cute a personalized doll would be. I was SHOCKED at how expensive they were after I typed it into the search bar. As I perused, my cute doll idea started to fade away in the moonlight, but I kept hitting the “next” button to see what other random items etsy had to offer. (And I do mean random, sometimes 😉
Then, I saw another one of those precious, but expensive dolls on a page way in the back. “Oh you again! What are you doing way back here, you tease! You’re so cute, but I just can’t afford a $55 dollar dolly–wait a minute!…”
This lil’ sweety doll was so cute–yet so affordable. “Where am I? What happened?”
“ANDREW! I FOUND IT! I FOUND ANDEE’S PRESENT!”
“Cool babe,” he said out of the corner of his brush and toothpaste filled mouth.
“Oh my gooooosh, I’m so excited! It’s a little dolly with cupcakes and her NAME on it!””
“Oh sweet,” (spit).
So I emailed her. “HI! I would LOVE one of your dollies for my precious nieces….but I need it to get to her in like……3 days” (Ever the good planner)
She responded: “Ok! I think I can make that happen!”
Two things I loved about her site:
1. ALL proceeds go to their ADOPTION! Yay for orphans being ransomed and getting into families!
2. As I looked through her etsy site Craft Creations I started seeing more things I liked. Good thing we know so many girl babies. (Did I mention The Tiny is the one boy birth of 2010 and 2011 of myself and all my friends, and there was a pretty big baby boom. He’ll have his pickin’s I guess 🙂
Ok, so here are a couple of my favorite girls things:
