Etsy is probably my favorite place to shop online. When it seems that everything I find in the stores these days is stamped with "made in china" it is so refreshing to have a place to buy quality, handmade gifts.
I've made numerous purchases through Etsy over the years and have always had a pleasant experience, but my latest purchase from Toadally Cute has got to be the best yet! Corrie, the owner and designer was amazing to work with and super detail-oriented. She happily obliged every single nit-picky edit I requested. Can we make the hippo just one shade of blue darker? Can we point the monkey's pinky toe just a little more to the left? Totally kidding about that last one. I wasn't that bad! But I bet if I would have asked, she would have responded with "sure :)"
(Do monkeys even have pinky toes?)
Anyway, back to Corrie. She was great and so sweet and very patient with me. And although everything looked great on the proofs she sent me, when my items all arrived in the mail yesterday I could not have been happier. Everything was one thousand times better in person! The quality of the paper and all the details with ribbon and rick rack and tulle were even better than I expected. So handmade, but at the same time much more professional looking than I could have done on my own.
She can make everything from invitations to door signs, cupcake toppers and gift tags. I'm not posting any pictures of my items yet because I don't want to ruin any party surprises, but I will definitely post lots of pictures after the party. In the meantime, if you are in the market for any party or event decor, I highly recommend her! I even have a coupon code for you: mention ReferAFriend along with my name and receive free shipping. You won't be disappointed!
*I did not receive any compensation for this recommendation. In fact, Corrie doesn't know anything about it. I just really love her products and wanted to pass along the word*
