All the Colors of Etsy

This post is a part of the Etsy Bloggers Street Team Blog Carnival. This week's topic is "Carnival of Color" and is being hosted by Regina over at her blog, Bead Jewelry Shop Girl.

I love color. Always have and always will. When I was younger I LOVED rainbows. Neat boxes of colored pencils and markers made a clear impact on how I saw the world. In fact, I still have those rainbow sorting tendencies--my first impulse when pairing colors is to use rainbows for any sets of 5 or more and tone on tone pairings for sets of 2 or three.

So when I saw the topic for this week, I knew I had have a rainbow of colors. So I present to you--the Etsy Rainbow. These are all items that I have purchased over the last year on Etsy. Click on the images to see the original listing and find more items by that seller.

RED --An ACEO made by a fellow VAST member, a photo frame that was a gift for a friend who LOVES Code Red Mountain Dew, a t-shirt for a friend who loves her miniature schnauzer, a motorcycle card that I traded for to give to my bike riding dad, a custom bear angel ornament for my mom, and an ACEO that was part of my anniversary gift to my husband.

ORANGE--A pendant that was gifted to a friend, a small address book I use to track my web log on IDs, a small stuffy I donated to a toy drive, a cheese stuffy for a friend, a spider ball cat toy for the kittens, a "date night" card I gave to my hubby.
