Etsy Virtual Labs: Shop Live with Design for Mankind

Wow! Seriously had such a great first time experience with etsy virtual labs today. While checking facebooktoday I saw that the was this live shopping event with Design for Mankind . So, I wandered in to check it out and was really inspired!

Reason # 148,279,446 why I so LOVE etsy: such an amazing sense of community with other artists who are just trying to spend their time making cool stuff and checking out other people's cool stuff.

Erin Loechner, who btw is my new favorite person on the internets, was talking live via webcam about her etsy holiday gift picks. She has an amazing eye and found some really great etsy artists who are now part of my ever-growing list of hearted favs. But, that wasn't the coolest thing. She was super inspirational, answered lots of our questions, and made me want to create something that would catch her eye. Who knows, maybe next year there will be a little Koi Kouture creation on her pick list.

Here are some of my favs from her picks:

Customized Notebook Pouch by Squirrellicious

I'd have mine read: Do you like me? Circle yes or no

Let's Make Out Pillow by AlexandraFerguson

Yes, lets!

Child TeePee by GracieBeanBaby

So Teepees are really "in" right now. Ya learn something new everyday.

Book of Lists Notebook by jedgell

Did you know that crossing stuff off on a list releases endorphins? I ask you, what better gift is there than endorphins?

Check out her entire list of gifts here

And don't worry if the links to the products show them as "sold". The artists have plenty more in their etsy stores, so browse it up.
