This week's shop is The Little Red Door! As you can see from the super cute banner above, this shops original pottery and crafts are just too darn adorable! I love things in miniature. I don't know what it is, but I just do! So I flipped over this shop!
Go browse among hand-built ceramic miniatures as well as functional slab & wheel pottery. Her signature item is the little house featuring a little red door like in the banner above, with many varieties and styles there's something for everyone. Start your little house collection today! AND get some Holiday shopping done as well!
The winner will receive one of those cute mini houses so you know you want to get in on that!
As an added bonus, we have a super duper sponsor this week... Your Next Stamp who will be donating one of their uber cute stamp sets... Just Swimming By Mermaid! Karen has been such a sweetheart to work with and we are honored to have her sponsor this week's challenge! You must go check the shop out and buy a stamp or two (or three or four or...)! You may see some cute digi's featured on the DT blogs from YNS as well. They are limited editions and available from Your Next Stamp for a short while so get them while you still can! Also, it's Karen's birthday tomorrow so leave her some love in your comments :-) or visit her blog. AND YNS has a new challenge blog so check that out and play along as well!

This week's awesome EtsyInspired shop is Kharlie Bugs. Toni, the shop owner, makes different kinds of bags out of fun and trendy materials. She makes a couple different handbags and cute little cosmetic bags. One thing I really like about these bags is that you can put them in the washer and let them dry. Being a mom, I get ALL sorts of stuff on my bags so it's really nice to be able to just throw them in the washer at home and have them come out clean. Also, since the bags contain interfacing they can stand up on their own. But they are also lightweight so they don't add to all the weight you already have to carry around. Plus the fabric is cotton so it won't dig into your shoulder and hurt. There's also a super cute bag that comes with a matching bow on it that you can take off and wear as a scarf! How fun is that??
To play along with the challenge all you have to do is to go to the Kharlie Bugs shop and pick an item to be inspired by. Make any item you wish and post a link to it on THIS post by Friday Oct 16, noon Pacific time. A random winner will be chosen on Friday and posted on the EtsyInspired blog. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC57.
This week, we have a GREAT prize for you! It is sponsored by Limelight Papercrafts! Limelight is one of my FAVORITE places to shop! I love all the stuff in the store like Unity, Basic Grey, Stickles, Pink Cat Studio, and the list goes on and on. On top of that, it's $5 flat rate shipping so I save money over buying from a bunch of different places. The prize this week is a 6x6 Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg paper pad and a 6x6 Nutmeg Chipboard set. :)
ALSO, Toni is going through a hard time right now so let's cheer her up! If you make a purchase from the Kharlie Bugs shop, you get 5 entries into the drawing for this awesome Cosmo Cricket prize! Just leave the link for your transaction.
What are you waiting for? Go be EtsyInspired!
And don't forget to check out the DT!

This week's EtsyInspired challenge is going to be a bit different. Since it's World Card Making Day, most of the team is really busy so this will be the very condensed version of EtsyInspired and I'll show you the samples of the projects that were made right here.
This week's shop is FakeSweatShop. This shop makes plushies that are 100% green! How cool is that? The outside is made from recycled fabrics that the owner, Serena gets from friends. The insides are filled with soft local produced wool that is soft and sustainable. Isn't that awesome?
To play along, just pick any item in the FakeSweatShop store and find inspiration from it. Make any creation that you'd like and post the link here for us to see. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC56.
The rest of the DT and I will be back next week in full force with an awesome shop and a SUPER AWESOME sponsor! :)
