Wednesday Wants!

Long time, no wants. Well, there have certainly been wants, but what with holidays, starting a new Writing Blog, and setting up an ongoing free read, not to mention another project I'm taking on with a friend of mine that's still a little hush-hush, I've been a little busy. But I was looking around Etsy the other day, and I can't not do a post today.

Firstly, I wanted to spotlight something by an Etsy seller that I've been eyeing, oh for months now. This is the Discover Journal, by the fantastic kreativlink:



I've had a long-distance (very long-distance, she's in Austria!) crush on kreativlink's stuff almost since I first joined Etsy. Actually the fact that I haven't featured her before confuses me, because she's one of the very first sellers that I favorited. I sort of want every journal she's ever made, and if I had the money I'd probably be a private kreativlink collector--I just think her stuff is that good. She makes journals out of fabric, leather, suede, hand paints several of them, and hand tears the pages, and each one is just exquisite. This one catches my eye because of the brilliant colors, I'm completely in love with it. I would be happy with any of her journals, though, I think she's a fantastic artisan.
Speaking of color...



Here's tlwoldc's lovely Strawberry Parfait Handspun yarn. This stuff looks perfectly edible, doesn't it? The description calls it a Valentine's Day yarn, and it sure looks like one! Just a little sparkly, and such a lovely mixture of colors!

And I don't usually find myself interested in the vanity knitting needles, but these are a definite exception:
These are OntheNeedle's Custom Yarn Embedded Jumbo Knitting Needles. Yarn! Inside the needles! I love it. They're so colorful and bright! Are we noticing a theme here? The sky outside is very gray at the moment, maybe that's why I'm so eager for color. They're a great big size 19, too, and I love me some chunky needles. =)
And to send off, a little bit of sweetness:

This decadent pic is an example of what comes in the Marshmallow Sample Packs currently available from sweetiepiesdelights, a surprise mixture of 12 homemade marshmallows (and maybe something else?) that you could get from this order. I've never had homemade marshmallows, but don't they look fantastic? Toasted coconut! Of course if you just want one specific kind, they do that, too! And really, all of their stuff looks fantastic!
Happy Innauguration week, everybody!
