Magic The Gathering Collection

As of 2 weeks ago, I was taught how to play MTG by my dear husband who knew I'm a total sucker for crap like this. Of course I'm completely hooked to the game and it's like a small war inside my head to not go out and buy more cards. After all, he already bought me the Return to Avacyn fat pack and an angel starter deck as gifts. -_- Must resist.

In the grand excitement of learning the rules and terminology of the wonderful world of Magic, I finally understand a lot more jokes and conversations I've seen and heard at conventions and online. Like a lot. I'd like to feature a  few really cool MTG related items from Etsy. Sadly these are things I will probably never buy since I try not to get sucked into fandoms but other MTG fans should definitely take a look!

One of the coolest things I've found are these 3D card/life counters. Granted we just scribble our scores on paper since we're cheap as hell, these would be super nice, eh? I've seen a lot of these 3D cards but I think no one does it better than Tigress Graphics. The cuts are clean, the layers are well thought out, and the end product looks very professional.


Another great 3D card maker is IntangibleVirtue. These cards are very nicely cut as well, but what I really like is that they use foam board between layers, which creates a much bolder 3D look for the image as a whole.
 

Of course there are quite a few deck boxes made of leather and wood, jewelry made from spindown dice, and MTG themed items, but I love the use of the cards. Here are a few more quick picks:

Recycled mini notebooks by StalkingMarla, perfect for a portable nerd-out to scribble out random whatevers. Click to go to the listing.

More wonderful items by one of my favorite acrylic jewelry designers, LicketyCut. Click to go to the listing.

 
Custom leather deck boxes by FoxAndDragon. These are some of the nicer leather ones I've seen and they do custom orders! Click to go to the listing.

Now I've seen people selling dice bags and dice by the handfuls and it took me a really long time to understand it. This adorable orc dice bag by MyFunkyCamelot is perfect for anyone who wants that super cool bag for all their dice! Click to go to the listing.

$100 Etsy Gift Card Giveaway

Finally Etsy has begun their gift card program. I've been waiting for this release for a long time. I mean, how cool would it be to get a gift card you can spend at any Etsy shop? There are only a bazillion.

As a promotion, Etsy is raffling off (actually I'm not positive it's a true raffle, it's just some sort of giveaway) ten $100 gift cards. Neat right? The best part is you can do it through FaceBook and the only real personal info it asks for is an email if you are a winner. Not bad. Click this link to enter for a chance to win.

With this release at the almost beginning of the holiday season, I'm hoping to see some people actually using the gift cards. Hell I've put out how many coupon codes and I think my codes have been used... twice in the last 360 sales. Seriously people, take advantage if you're going to shop anyway.

So I know I already said this but I will begin Christmas/holiday stocking as soon as Halloween is over. I'm sorta riding off my premade stock right now being lazy since I have no shows and lots of other new things to do (like play MTG!) But that glorious ride is coming to and end soon so it will be back to work probably by next week. I will also be announcing my holiday ship dates and all that jazz on here, FB, and Etsy.

Currently at the top of my shop:
