I Make: My Etsy Shop

Well, I’ve been posting on here for a while, but I haven’t really shown much of my work. I thought you might like to take a look at some of the stuff I sell in my Etsy shop.

For more, visit my Etsy shop, Abstract Octopus!

I Love: Present & Correct

Could anything possibly be more adorable that EVERYTHING at Present & Correct? I think not!

I Love: 500 Colored Pencils

I came across SocialDesigner.com the other day. Apart from supporting good causes, it is awesome. The site allows its users to submit designs for competitions, vote on designs, and purchase winning designs on tees and totes. The proceeds go to various charities and groups. You can shop by design or by cause.

My favorite product on the site is a sort of side project called 500 Pencils. When you purchase the pencils, they don’t all come at once. You receive 25 pencils a month for 20 months. It’s like getting a gift once a month. The pencils have great names such as Arizona Sunset and Lobster Bisque.


They even sell storage containers to display your lovely collection. My favorite is the wall display. It almost creates a piece of artwork.

I Love: Lumadessa

So I adore birds. I came across Lumadessa. Lumadessa is an art and design label started by Josh Brill. You can get these sweet little birds in his shop and the best part is 5% of the proceeds go to Animal and Environmental Charities.

Obsessed: Laptop Cases

My computer is my baby. Even though it’s a little dirty from eating near it and one time spilled an entire bottle of water onto the keyboard (I took it to the computer hospital aka Apple Store after it dried out), it has stood by me. At the moment, I have a basic, black, Incase sleeve for it. It does the job, but I feel my computer deserves better. Here are some lovely cases I found on Etsy that may have to replace the basic black one.

I Want: MT Tapes (and I got them!)

So I posted before about these adorable Japanese masking tapes from MT. I searched high and low for a good deal. They’re hard to find and are pretty much all sold through people on Etsy. I found a sweet deal on a box of thirty from Washimatta on Etsy. I got my package the other day and had to share. They’re so cute!

I Want: Archie Grand Notebook

I came across these sweet little notebooks by Archie Grand via Poppytalk. The colors are great. I’d want one of each so I could list all the wonderful people I met.

Love! You can find them at Rare Device to be shipped to the US. They only carry a few kinds as far as I could tell, but you should really check out the Archie Grand site. They make them for ALL types of people. The site is really pretty and colorful too!
