By Kate Gatski, Kate Shoup

The Etsy Blog isn’t just a great place to hone your crafting skills. It’s also an excellent source for inspiration and general lifestyle tips, from cooking to decorating and more. Here are just a few “series” of posts to keep an eye out for:

  • Eatsy: Etsy’s cleverly named Eatsy posts are sure to delight the foodies among you. Each post contains a mouth-watering recipe, complete with luscious photographs to stir the senses. With an emphasis on slow food and farm-to-table treats, Eatsy is sure to have you salivating.

  • Kitchen Histories: This series, penned by historic gastronomist (her words) Sarah Lohman, focuses on our culinary past, with topics ranging from maple sugaring to the mortar and pestle. If you’re a history buff, you’ll love this series!

  • Get the Look: In this weekly series, Etsy editors peek into gorgeous homes nationwide and present curated collections of Etsy listings inspired by these lovely abodes. If you’re looking for inspiration for your living space, Get the Look is for you.

  • Short Stories: At Etsy, they believe “the story behind an object is often just as fascinating as the object itself.” To that end, Etsy’s Short Stories series showcases the stories behind some extraordinary Etsy listings.

  • Real Weddings: The Real Weddings series is devoted to sharing the stories of Etsy brides and grooms, many of whom emphasize the use of handmade and vintage items and the importance of sustainable living during their nuptials.

For even more inspiration, look to Etsy’s Blogs We’re Loving section, on the main Etsy Blog page. This section features links to blogs outside Etsy, most with a strong emphasis on crafting and design.
