Happy Etsy Craft Party Day!! I've been such a fan of this yearly event that Etsy began four years ago. It's basically a day where people across the world get together and make things, embracing and promoting the handmade community. No matter where you live, there are little communities of crafters getting together to create awesome things all over the place. Um, I'd love to join the group in Perth, Australia!! (Here's a MASTER LIST of locations if any of you want to get involved!)
I'll be hanging in Orange County (time for some OC action!) with the Academy of Handmade Artists and Supporters at the Creative Outlet Studios getting my Etsy Craft Party DIY on! If any Southern California friends are around, come and stop by - event starts at 6pm!! Details are HERE and there will be all sorts of crafts (fabric dyeing/screen printing/card making), snacks (a dessert bar and vino), and amazing raffles (ilovetocreate/Whimseybox/Fiskars) to enjoy throughout the evening.
I'm obsessed with Etsy (all my collage wall art came from Etsy artists) and am excited to help promote a day of handmade goodies! I'll have a full rundown and post of all the cool things that get made and will have to put up some tutorials! Also if any of you are partaking in an event where you are, post photos on Instagram/Twitter and hashtag #craftparty and #NDAD to share. I'll be Instagramming all night long!! #sorryinadvance :)
New remake tomorrow!!
