Today’s fun etsy find is in honor of the many friends I have that are currently expecting (or hoping to be expecting in the near future)!

Here’s what cutiefruity says about her belly bands:

Belly Bands are practical and fashionable. Check my other listings for a variety of colors and prints. They are made of poly lyrca knit. Sizing is based on the hip measurement. If this item is a gift, I will add a free gift tag, just let me know.

SUPER STRETCH BANDS FIT SIZES 8-18. LEAVE A NOTE TO SELLER IF YOU ARE SMALLER SO IT CAN BE TAKEN IN.

Belly bands are great for:
♥ Covering unzipped pants
♥ Making the pre-pregnancy wardrobe last longer
♥ Covering the panel on maternity pants
♥ Smoothing out the muffin top
♥ Use as a Nursing Bra at night
♥ Lengthening too short shirts
♥ Keeping warm in the winter

AlloverArt’s Hand Painted Resin Pendant… January 15, 2009

Today’s fun find from Etsy.com is a hand painted resin pendant by AlloverArt.

Here’s what she says about this pendant:

Here’s an eye-catching 1.5 inch (3.81 cm) circle fine art resin pendant on a black Chinese silk cord. This tiny acrylic painting is one-of-a-kind, and depicts a white tree silhouette on a red background.

This original miniature painting was created with high quality acrylic paints on a wooden tile. The painting was then sealed on every surface, and then received a high-gloss resin finish which gives it a very polished look. The finished effect is similar to that of a heavy glass pendant, but it is actually very lightweight. The pendant features a large silver-plated aanraku bail securely fastened to the back, and comes with an 18 inch (45.72 cm) black Chinese silk cord with a lobster claw clasp.
