Hello My Name is Nivia… and I’m an Addict

My addiction ETSY!!!!!

It is amazing how many awesome things you can find on Etsy.  I can only compare it to Amazon my second love.  Mostly everything I buy these days are between these two sites. They even have an iPhone app so I can take my addiction on the road.

I also love the fact that the site has a wide selection of indie designers and artisans who are providing nice products at reasonable prices.  And if you to are interested in selling something you like setup is easy and cheap to have your own e-commerce site.

But seeing how I am working hard to keep a budget I window shop Etsy everyday just for home decor inspiration and to see all the other lovely things the site has to offer.

Here are some of the things I added to my favorites most recently.

Empress Vanilla Spice Shea Butter

Combination Bracelet

Washi Tape

Sconce Bookshelves

Wooden Stamp

Cast Iron Soap Dish/ Business Card Holder

Send-me-Your-Overalls Bag

What I’m Loving Right Now: All DIY Mason Jar Items

While doing my online inspiration views through Etsy and Pinterest, I came upon a staple item in tons of fabulous Projects.

Yes the awesome and multifunctional Mason Jar.

Here are a couple of ideas that inspired me.

After viewing multiple great ideas I have given in and have ordered my case of 1 quart mason jars.

Seeing how I will have 12 Jars to work with, I plan to make a Mason Jar Light, Snow globe, Soap dispenser and drinking cup. I will decide on other items later.  I will also use some  to store items around the house that get crazy like kids crayons, etc.

I will make sure to update with how to’s and pictures so stay tuned.
