Oh American Dollar,why do you Forsake me!

I tell you this fall in the Aussie dollar is doing nothing good for my Etsy itch that I NEED to scratch. Look at all these lovelies. I am trying to be good, but is good over-rated? I don't even bother going to the shops anymore, I will never find anything as lovely as these babies!

I have just found this new seller of Japanese fabricy goodness, I don't know where they have been all my life but at least we have each other now - So good it should come with a health warning.


Skunk boy have the cutest tree decorations ever, this mouse speaks to me.

Imagine how happy my change could be in one of these bunnies, not that I would have any change left after all my Etsy shopping, but you know in theory.


And these 2 girls, give me strength, A little sprout's blue haired sweetie makes my heart melt everytime and 13mimosa (Yeah the local girl) has these almost retro inspired faces.

It appears I may also need to buy a bib to soak up the drool. I couldn't let PottyMouthMama have all the fun sharing her latest Etsy loves.

I know! I keep checking the exchange rate hoping to see some improvement so I can start buying things again.

No, dollar not good for us to buy from etsy - I did recently and got stung - I did it all without taking the $ into consideration, and b4 I knew it I was paying double, and I'd comitted to the sale. However, I'm finding the $$ thing working wonders for getting US and UK sales on my big website - so the economic crisis has it's good points...

The fall of the Aussie Dollar is a very sore point around this house right now. I prefer not to dwell on it. Argh.

Yes, I hear you too. I procrastinated about some Etsy shopping for months and left it too long. Boo Hoo. I figure maybe a little Christmas treat will be OK. Surely?
