Etsy stocking stuffers

I can't believe it has been a week since I last wrote.

Besides being busy with life (work, sickness etc), I find sometimes I am in the mood to absorb rather than to express.  I have been reading a fair bit about the cables released by Wikileaks, I find the situation fascinating.  I haven't made up my mind whether it was the right thing to do.

Tonight I have been busy packing.  I'm not done yet, just taking a breather.  Packing is only tolerable because it is the prelude to a holiday.  I always manage to pack too much of some things and forget about others.  Now that we have to pack for TLG as well it is even more stressful.  Can't wait until I can slam the suitcase shut tonight.

As Christmas draws near, here are a few etsy stores that are great for stocking stuffers.

The Nebulous Kingdom

I made my first etsy purchase here.  AnneJulie Aubry is a French artist who creates some beautiful drawings.  My avatar on this blog is one of her works.  My purchase was a mirror with this print.

I am tempted to buy her 2011 calendar, however the calendar starts on Sundays and my brain is incapable of using calendars that don't start on Mondays.  I may convo her to see whether she can change that for me.


I came across the work of this artist from England when I did a search on "the girl with the pearl earrings" (courtesy of this Regresty entry) and I think her work is exquisite.  She has a sale on at the moment and the prints are great value.

Stelie designs

I was looking for Christmas presents with a personal touch and I really like the look of the personalised notepads from this etsy store.  I ordered a set of notepads with the design below (with cursive font in purple) for my MIL.

I asked the seller to create a custom design for me and she did a superb job.  Stephanie is lovely and a pleasure to deal with.

You can check out Stephanie's blog here - her kids are adorable :-)

Well, it's time for me to say adieu.  We are flying to Nadi tomorrow, and starting our holiday at Castaway Island on Friday.

See you all in 11 days' time!


  1. Have a great holiday in Fiji! You won't need too much for TLG luckily and if you have a private transfer along the way, get the driver to stop at a supermarket so you can stock up on nappies and snacks if you need them.
