Handmade shops on Etsy and Artfire with no sales sometimes have amazing finds so I like to find some awesome things from these shops and share them with you guys. I am a self-proclaimed foodie-my belly would be proof of that :) So I have chosen all kinds of Fabulously Funky jewelry for the foodie today.

and blue, and green, and yellow, and pink, and black! I just spent way too long in the shop where I found these earrings. This shop has so many flower earrings in any color you could want-not just roses either-they have chrysanthemums, daisies, mums, and lillies to name a few. My pick are these roses. They are Fabulously Funky and can be all yours at only $4.25. Fancy Flowers

In my daily search of awesome handmade finds I keep coming across these Fabulously Funky plush friends. So I searched a bit more and found bunches of coolness in plush form. Added bonus-nothing over $10!
This first find is pretty great and I think would make a fabulous gift for a friend or co-worker. It is an "Emotional". The eyes can be bent to show different emotions plus who doesn't love some crazy hair? They come in many colors and are only $8. Show Some Emotion
Is there anyone out there that doesn't think ninjas are awesome? I didn't think so. My next find is a tiny pink ninja in a bag. She is super cute and portable and I am thinking would be great for a friend going through a hard time or just a bit of encouragement and support-help her kick a little butt ninja style. If pink isn't your thing the ninja is also available in black $6 for this tiny treasure. Hi Ya!
As an elementary teacher I see kids loose teeth daily.. They are so excited to show you the gaping hole in their mouth-even if you aren't so excited to see it. So for that reason I chose this-it is a tooth pillow that you leave for the tooth fairy. With this one you put the tooth or money in the mouth-it is a little pocket! It also comes in many colors and includes its own pillow case! Only $6 and such a fun thing for kids. Tooth Pillow
This next one is just cuteness all over the place! He is a little tie-dye monster holding a baby blue monster. The details are embroidered-skills I will never possess myself. While I was looking at this one my husband looked over and said "What's that cuteness?" Enough said! Only $5.50 which I think is an amazing price for such an awesome handmade creature just waiting for a home. Stuffie Monster
I've struck gold! This is a little gold nugget plush. I love her shiny fabric! She just speaks to me. She is small and fun. Her eyes and mouth were made from felt and you can bring home this little nugget for just $5. Strike Gold

I love something that comes with a story. These handmade cases all come with a card that descibes their personality. Plus you get to choose from bunny, kitty, or puppy and then you still get more choices-would you prefer Broken Hearted Moron Bunny or Diabolical Bunny. These are listed as Ipod holders and may hold a Blackberry but the seller can make the size you want. Only $12 and I must say I am a fan of poor Broken Hearted Moron Bunny!Bunnies can be found here!
I think I may be in love with these! They are so cute and I love how creative that the zipper is the mouth. The case is quilted for extra protection of you device and has a button and loop on the back so you can hang it from your bag or belt loop. The shop have several colors and styles and this one is only $9.90. Feed this guy your gadget!Head purse found here!
I love choices but this one would be a hard one to make. This little holder comes in your choice of monkey, chicken, or penguin. Double layers of felt protect your gadget. This one opens from the right side and your device slips right in. This one is going for $22.
Monkeys, Chickens, and Penguins Oh My!
A monster ate my Blackberry! This is right up my alley. This guy is cavas with a striped lining and has a small pocket for your id or credit card. The shop has several other monster options for you to choose from-all awesome! Bring him home for $14.Click here for Monster Madness!
For the Men-This is such a smart idea! This holder is for the iPod and is made of recycled suit jackets. The seller can customize for the iPod, iPhone, or iTouch. There is elastic that warpas around the button even though you can't see that in this pic. It is only $17.Does it Suit you?
A little bit calmer if you aren't into monsters and animals. This is like a tiny purse for your gadget. I picked the owl because I love birds but this shop has much more sophisticated fabrics such as damask for you to choose from. It has a snap closure and removal wrist strap. Also has room for your cards. This one is going for $14.50.
Make your Gadget Cozy!
Deal of the Day! Got $5? This cute apple is only $3 and shipping is $2.50 so $5.50 will get him in your hands-you can't beat that. Also available in red!
Put your Apple in this Apple!

This shop has so many wonderfully sentimental and meaningful art prints. They are all limited and numbered and currently there is a buy one print get one free sale. These prints would make awesome housewarming or wedding gifts. Some just have sayings others just have pictures and others have both. This is an awesome find even if I do say so myself :)
The details on this little handmade Sculpey ragdoll are fantastic. She is super cute and would make a great little desk decoration-even if you have to be dressed in your work clothes Christine can be there to show your wilder side with her mismatched stockings and green hair.

Sock Babe-This is just down right cute and fun. She looks to be really well made and is going for just $12. Give an original gift that stands out-how many of these do you see at Toys R Us?
Old Goat Birthday Card-This is a truly one of a kind birthday card. It has an awesome goat with a jingly bell. The shop name is Moody Goat which I also love. I had a pet goat named Mokey growing up so they will always have a special place in my heart.
Linen Bird Cuff-If you read my blog I have mentioned loving birds before so this cuff was a no brainer. This is a lined cuff with little birds on a branch. I think this piece is very unique and would make a heartfelt gift. In my opinion it is the kind of jewelry you put on in the morning and smile as you remember who gave it to you and why.
Girl on the Moon-This is a beautiful print of a girl reading a book on the moon. I love the colors. The print is signed and numbered on the back.
Henri-original art-To be honest it was hard to pick just one of this shop's pieces for the blog. There are several awesome watercolors similar to this one. I finally decided on Henri-he likes to eat flower petals. This is original art for only $8. It is also matted so all you have to do is stick it in a frame and voila!http://eyecandii.etsy.com

Fabulously Funky Finds:
This shop has some amazing stuff. My pick is the most affordable and super cute. He is a pocket octopus! The artist makes them as they are order so yours would be made just for you! You get to choose your color combinations as well. I would like to stick one of these in my husband's car as a nice surprise on a Monday morning. Pack him in a your babies pocket as you send them off to camp or brighten a friend's day with one of these cuties.
This keychain would make a great gift for a summer bride using her new last name initial. These keychains are only $8 and come in an adorable gift tin. You get to choose the colors as well. This shop also has initial pendants.
Cupcakes are my kryptonite-meaning if I let myself I could eat them till I was sick so I could not resist these earrings. They are made from polymer clay and hang from sterling silver wires. They are only $6.50 and would make a great gift for the birthday girl. Yummy and calorie free!
This shop has some super cute stuff and my pick is this item because you can make it 100% yours! You decide if you want a pendant, cell strap, brooch, magnet-the list goes on. Then you get to choose from, initial monogram, bakery (pies, doughnuts, cake, a piece of cake, cupcake, etc.), candy (lollypop, candy cane, candy, etc.), chocolate bar, or animal.
