Mini Challenge: Etsy Inspiration

I'm thinking of a word.  It is a little word, only 4 letters.  Nope, not that word.   Guess again.  No.....I said FOUR letters.  Come on, you know what it is...it is the greatest thing since sliced bread!


I bet you know what it is!  Shoppers and crafters alike heave a sigh at the mention of this site. (Plus, it is mentioned in my title, so if you don't know what I am talking about it is totally not my fault. LOL)


Have you been there lately?  It is excellent for unique shopping, totally cool for window shopping and unbelievable for finding inspiration.  Want to take a peek at my favorite finds from the last few weeks?



Seriously, I see dozens of excellent crafting ideas just from these few photos.  Really fun stuff! So.......

Mini Challenge #1:  The Etsy Challenge
Use any item on Etsy to ispire your next project (layout, card, mini, altered item...).  Make sure you share both the inspiration item and what you created with us.

Hints:
If you google Etsy and then (on the left hand side of the page) click on images, it will pull up random images from Etsy which can be a fun way to browse and see new things.

Also, try to go in with no ideas in your head...just browse and start snagging things that grab you.  You can get technical with it later.  :)

Have fun!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Don't forget to post it to our Master Linky to get a chance to win a prize this month.
