EtsyInspired #60 ~ Vivikas

>> Saturday, October 31, 2009



This week's EtsyInspired shop is Vivikas. Now, I know I say this A LOT but I love this shop! I mean, I really really love this shop. It's one of those shops where if I had tons of money, I would just buy the whole shop out and arrange everything in it in my studio. They call the items in their shop "toy art" and it truly is art. I would NOT let my kids play with these plushies, they are too cute! These are the kind that sit on a shelf and get treasured! Everything is made from felt, stuffed and then 100% hand stitched. You can see how much love goes into each one of these creations. Along with traditional plushies, they also offer ornaments, magnets, keychains, and kitty toys.

This week, Vivikas is offering up BOTH the owlies pictured here to a lucky winner. I wish I could win! ACK! So cute! All you have to do to win is choose any item in a the Vivikas shop to be inspired by. Make any creation your little heart desires and link it up to the EtsyInspired #60 post on the EtsyInspired blog. Please have your creation linked by Friday Nov 6 at noon Pacific time. A winner will be drawn that day and posted on the EtsyInspired blog. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC60.

As if that weren't enough, we have a WONDERFUL sponsor this week! Unity Stamp Co! Unity makes the BEST red rubber foam mounted stamps. Their images are super cute. The customer service is amazing. And the prices are fantastic! This week, they are giving away the awesomeBirdie Inspiration set to one lucky winner! This set is so cute! I wish I could win. I really should resign from the team so I could play along and win! :)
