I have recently uncovered a bigger love for stuffed stuff, I have always been a lover and partial addict to cute stuff. (If you saw my store you would know). So as I was scouring the web to find ideas for my craft classes that I am going to start teaching at my store, I found the cutest little stuffed owl DIY on blog.thecelebrationshoppe.com . That got me thinking how fabulous of an idea that was... very easy to do (well to varying degrees). I got crafty and made two myself with a few modifications to the directions. They came out super cute.

Then I wanted to see more cuteness and went of course to good ol' faithful etsy for more owls. Some of them are so cute I decided to share with you my etsy search adventure, with stats, etsy mini's and a whole lot of cuteness. Thank you to all the shoppes for sharing...hope you enjoy this post as much as I did creating it.
Number one

She was one of the only shoppes that I found that had DIY owl kits, they are at a great price, come with directions and everything you need to make your very own stuffed birdie. She even makes chickens...super cute.

Paula has two owl's Little Love Owls and Wise Mrs. Owl, plus two great little stuffed trees...the make a nice duo. PJM Designs shoppe focuses mostly on paper crafts but gives us a little treat by including her lovely stuffed creations. I love Mrs. Owl, I am a big pink fan.

Another fabulous plushie shoppe, again I just loved stuffed stuff. Trish has a great selection of not so normally found plushies...she has a deepsea diver with a fish in its helmet (love it), a Mr. Fry guy, a stuffed panda, a slice of pizza, and a tiki guy. How many times do you come across a Mr. Tiki. Thank you Trish for sharing!!!!

blog, well myspace www.myspace.com/birdwatchingcrafts

This little lady has what I would call a sun-dries shoppe, oh and it gets better, she has two shops. Birds bubbles, which carries things for your bath (which I wish I had a tub). Both of her shops are fabulous...so fabulous that I bought something...shame on me.
(this is what I bought, catnip mice for my three babies)
Birdwatching has everything from magnets to pouches to cozies to stuffed plushies...worth the look.
Tally hoo to the next one!!!!!
Shoppy number ...hmmm! 5

First thoughts, she has fabulous pictures of her plushies and her on her blog...she is all gray and they have color, fantastic. Looking through her blog and shop was quite nice. Loved the blog, and loved the tree skirts and plush tree the most. Also I keep think...lions, tigers, and bears oh my!!! She even has clutches with appliqued cuteness on it. Love it. Thank you for letting me share.

Last but not least!!!!!! Tienda 5

My Baby Ella

opened 10.5.08, located in Murfreesboro (okay, never heard of this place, and checked etsy globe thingy and said it could be in two places, how is that for funky named towns)

sin blog ... so no blog that I know of :( , and sans etsy mini!!! so sad! So I tossed in a pic of the leg warmers.

She will custom make owls to match your interior...that is fabulous, she just asks that you convo her, and then you guys figure out the details. I love convos, makes me happy. She has a great little assortment, but just one owl plushy that I spotted. But has some hot tween leg warmers...I still have small legs in my thirties. Lots of cute appliqued shirts, and leg warmers.

Thank you so much for having the patience to make it through this amazing long post. i had a great time putting it together. Cheers


  1. lovely features :)

  2. theres a Murfreesboro right outside Nashville...mmmm...deep fried stuff.
    You're obsessed with stuffing things full of poly-fil, I think. Hopefully Paddy is sleeping with one eye open so he doesn't wake up all appliqued.

  3. Hi Shannon! This feature turned out wonderful, thank you so much for including me! I think everyone featured here has such CUTE stuff!!
