Etsy Shop Find Post #3: Parcel & Paper Shop

Hello everyone, so today's etsy shop find is Parcel and Paper Shop:

I am really in to packaging even though I don't spend enough time doing it.  I plan on expanding my horizon w/ packaging though because who doesn't like getting perfectly wrapped gifts that you just don't want to open??? It makes the gift extra special.  It makes you want to take a photo of it packaged and then carefully open as not to tear the wrapping or ruin the box.  Anyway, I just found this shop that has the type of pieces that would go into the type of packaging that fits my own aesthetic.  Parcel & Paper shop has tags, twines, twisties, craft bags, boxes, kits and more that make for gorgeously and carefully packaged gifts.  I love it!  Here are some items that I would love to have:

I love simple tags like this.  Would be very nice to use with a custom stamp or print.

I would LOVE to have this kit.

Etsy Shop Review #2: SouZou Creations

I am absolutely amazed by the care and imaginativeness that goes into hand crafting these lovely accessories.  They're unique, well at least they would be in America, not sure how they faire in Japan.  I would love to have a cute bowl of ramen sitting on my finger or a japanese green tea set to fancy my fingers and add some color! Very cute stuff.  Check it out.

Found Etsy Shop Review #1:

I love etsy.  But the thing I hate about etsy is there is SO much to weed through.  Lots of great things, but also things that are not my taste.  I decided to start doing shop find posts since this is the only way that I can find anything I like on etsy -- if i find a link from someone else's blog.  Today, I want to share this find: kawaii goodies.  When I think of Kawaii, I think of the smiley faced random CUTE animals/objects.  But kawaii is also just anything cute.  and this etsy shop has a lot of cute packaging items, washi tapes, stickers, stamps etc. and all w/ very low, sometimes free shipping cost.  I love cute packaging.  There is something about a nicely packaged gift that makes me smile.  It shows care and attention.  Time and effort.  But also love and appreciation.  and best of all, it can make any cheap gift seem expensive. haha.  Everyone who will get a gift from me in the near future... expect pretty packaging that make u not want to open it :)

Check out some of the items I plan to buy eventually:

Nothing like cute school supplies





To get me motivated for sth thaT generally makes my life difficult. Whenever I shop for school supplies, I like to go to maido or kinokuniya or daiso. Unfortunately they dont normally carry 3 ring binders. And Obviously target or walmart aint gonna have the cutest binders... So in the spirit of back to school, I decided that I would make my own three ring binders. Fun process and cute outcome!
