An Etsy Kids Team Spotlight- Love 2 Sparkle Boutique

I recently purchased from Love 2 Sparkle Boutique two Going to the Zoo Hair Clips Set Clippies Bow Clips Non Slip. They are so wonderful. In my six non slip hair clips we have a monkey, bear, giraffe, lion, zebra, and pink elephant. They clippies are hand sewn with unbelievable detail. The zebra mane is made of not one straight black ribbon, but about 15 small pieces of ribbon hand sewn on to the zebra’s neck. So much work went into these hair clips.

I am so happy with my purchase from Love 2 Sparkle Boutique!
We gave these to my daughter for her 5th birthday and she fell in love with them. Throughout the day she wore all of them at one point or another. I can’t say enough great things: great communication, very fast shipping, wonderful prices, and such amazing detail and work was put into my daughters hair clips.

Not to mention I love to support shops in my area she lives rather close to me in Springfield, MA so she is also an Etsy Kids Team New England Member.

Kits for Kids

I am always looking for crafts, kits, and ideas for my kids to do on a rainy day or just when I need a few minutes to talk on the phone. Here are some great Etsy Kids Team Member Shops that have just what I am looking for.

Children's Woodland

This shop has a great variety of kits for kids. From ABC craft kits to Elmo, Thomas, and Dora ones.

"All the colorful and creative children's items that you see in my store are created to help young children learn important skills while having fun at the same time! The enjoyment I get from creating my work is increased by knowing that my creations are being enjoyed by someone that is special to you!"-Children's Woodland

And Then

This shop has some classic kid kit crafts. Such as: Stain glass butterfly, handprint sun, fish aquarium, and rocketship to name a few.

And Then "craft kits are made with love and kid-tested. I have done all the parent grunt-work (research, shopping, prep-work, organization), and assembled most of the craft supplies in a cute reusable box (you might need to supply something simple like scissors or a little tape). All you need to do is sit down with a kid kit and the special little person in your life and have some quality time!"- And Then

Baby Kays Boutique

Has some oh so cute no sew tutu ebooks! We are all about tutus in our house! Even if your child can not manage this diy tutu you (or an older child) can create it and your little one can help embellish it.

And to make things ever better this shop is having sale on there ebooks. Visit her sit for details.

And lets not for forget the older children

Easter Basket Craft for the Kids!

Well I just realized that Friday is a no school day. Oh no what to do with the kids? Well I found this great craft today on http://www.familyfun.com/ on how to make a cute Easter Egg Basket.

Here is what you need:
Basket template (see Step 1)
Poster board square, 11 by 11 inches (for the base around which you weave the fabric)
Dyed T-shirt strips- I personally will use yarn with my 4 year old to do this
Tacky glue

1. print out the Easter basket template.

2. Trace the template onto the poster board square and cut it out.

3. Tie a knot at the end of 1 fabric strip and pull the knot between 2 panels of the base (B).

4. Weave the strip alternately over and under the panels (B and C). Glue the unknotted end of the fabric strip to the base.

5. Knot the end of each new strip and tuck the knot under an unglued section of a previously woven strip. After 3 or 4 strips are completed, gently fold the basket panels up so they begin coming together (C) to form a widemouthed basket (D). Tip: Don't squeeze the sides in too tightly as you work, or the basket will become too narrow at the top.

6. If necessary, use a dab or two of tacky glue to secure the fabric to the poster board, especially around the top. Let it dry.

7. Trim any excess poster board at the top, making sure there's still enough to support the topmost fabric strip. 8. Line the basket with straw or grass. Add eggs!

Here is the link which shows pictures on the steps:

Hey even if it does not come out perfect your kids were busy on a no school day for a little while!

I just found another craft from familyfun.com. This one is a video on how to do 3 Egg carton crafts for Easter/ spring

Ever wonder???

Have you ever wondered "Am I in any Etsy Treasuries right now?" Well so have I and to search all the Treasuries list everyday is just not going to happen. Well let's face it if the person who made the Treasury does not tell you you have no clue do you?

Well now you can search very quickly and easy. Craftopolis has a search for you!


Just type in your Etsy user name and all of the treasuries you are in appear in one place for you to look at. I have searched my shop here and there over the past 2 weeks and I have found a Treasury I was in and had no clue. Such a high knowing others like your items so much they put you in a Treasury!

Just thought I would share this great site!
