Hi, it's Veronika here!

You surely know that I like Etsy. It's truly a marketplace full of amazing handmade and original creations. And they do awards for their sellers! Exciting!
From the whole range of nominations - that you can see here - I've decided to highlight a few of my own favourites, of course, all vegan-friendly, therefore no leather, no wool or angora, feathers, bones, etc.
Please note: At the moment of writing this article, I haven't managed to ask every creator about some further details such as paints and glues they use so take my guide really as a guide =) and please check with artists further details when in doubts if all materials they used are really vegan-friendly. Alternatively, ask them if they can customise it for you - this is what Etsy is about in the end: customisation, personalisation so you can get unique and bespoke arts and crafts.

Let's get to the list!

Hi, it's Veronika here, today with rustic home decor that will bring memories of the good old days. Well, at least it brings it to me when I look at Nancy's handmade textile flowers =)
Nancy runs MumMumsPetals on Etsy and she would like to tell you more about her shop and work.

Nancy?

"After my mom passed away a year ago, I just needed an outlet of sorts, something therapeutic to put my mind to. I came across some burlap and felt flower tutorials and decided to give it a try. Eventually hubby encouraged me to expand this growing hobby, so I looked into ways to market my new creations.
In October [2018] I opened an Etsy shop which has given me a platform to share these beautiful flowers with the world. They can be used for DIY projects and as home or personal accessories. I’ve also created several different products to showcase the flowers for my Etsy shop: wreaths, picture frames, string art, ornaments, banners and stencilled wall plaques. Many more ideas are brewing in my brain! This venture fulfils my need to create, and my prayer is that my creations bless all who come in contact with them."

Hi, it's Veronika here and I'm a bit behind, as usual, with my article =)

Spring is here for sure, as it's past my birthday (I'm Aries) now and so it's really the time to do some spring hunt on Etsy and highlight Easter decorations and picks that are both handmade and vegan-friendly.

So many products around spring and Easter are baby-themed, especially when it comes to farm animal babies. So let's not be hypocrites and think about lambs as babies, not your dinner, chickens as beautiful (and pretty clever!) birds, not machines for eggs and rabbits as companions, not a cute Easter gifts that will be left in a cage for the rest of their fairly long life (one of those matters are reflected in my free greeting cards for vegans - find out more and get them here, at my main blog).

Think differently and be kind this spring. Keep it green and vegan like I do =)

Now, let's browse my spring Etsy picks and enjoy!

Hi, it's Veronika here!

And I bet you landed here this because you LOVE horses. Me too, although I've never been the proper horse-maniac and has ridden on a horse just about 5 or 10 times in my life... and I'm not going to ride anymore (more about that later, I'll share some thoughts on this in my other blog - I'll post a link here later - let's keep this home decor focused =)
I simply admire these amazing majestic animals and that, of course, is probably no surprise as many of you can relate!

I have noticed that my Pinterest board about horses became SUPER popular - so I was thinking, why not to do a bit of horse art? My shops are supporting marine conservation as well animal sanctuaries - including rescue horses (find out more about it here) and at the same time it's pushing my art buttons back to working mode and I LOVE how all these good things can be well combined!

Hi, it's Veronika here and I'm bringing to you today something that caught my eye a while ago and I just couldn't find time to write about it any earlier! So without any much longer delays, please enjoy amazingly looking knits such as dragon scale rainbow mittens and many more, "made by one of the strongest arms in the world" - no kidding, meet Sigita who runs CraftyMarmara shop on Etsy* and who is an amazing arm wrestler!

Let's learn more about Sigita and her work!

Hi. My name is Sigita. I am Latvian living in Turkey. I am a Turkish national team athlete and a crazy knitter. I can't imagine my life without knitting and crocheting!
I have been knitting/crocheting since I was a teenager.
As a beginner, I never thought about or paid attention to what kind of yarn I was using. I had categories for yarn as pretty - ugly - thick - thin😂 that's all!
Only after many years when I started to get better at what I do and wanted to take it to the next level - sell my crafts.
I joined online knitting groups, and only then I realized that I was using the "wrong"🙄 yarn all along!!!
According to most knitters, I was wasting my time if I was not using wool yarn. They were pitying me for all that effort and time spent for nothing. As long as it wasn't a high percentage in wool it wasn't good.
At that time I was shocked and confused because I already knew that many people like and appreciate my work...
