Etsy Friends - Where You Can Find All Things Handmade

This is just one of the many fine, handmade items you will find on Etsy. This is by Abi Monroe and if you scroll down the page a bit under the title "Etsy Treasury", you can click on her shop, An Angel At My Table.

Abi also makes dolls and is a member of ADO (Art Dolls Only) on Etsy. ADO is a group of doll makers in all kinds of medium: clay, cloth, mixed media.

Handmade is a bit more expensive, but what you may not realize is how many hours go into making something really special! These are not manufactured, machine-stamped items..you get those at the dollar store. All of the items are handmade, usually one-of-a-kind.

When you are looking for something really unique for a special gift or for the upcoming holidays, please go to Etsy and support the artists! The person who receives your gift will appreciate your taking the time to find that unique piece and the artist can buy groceries!


  1. Thank you Deena - you are the kindest! :O)

  2. Abi - I really like your work and I only wish great things to happen for you!
