These are some photos snapped at the Etsy Crafty Party that was held by my hometown. It was put on by the Hollywood Craft Mafia and it was at my favorite craft store Pearls. When I was little my mom would take us there and it always felt like Disney world. It is a huge craft store filled of treasures. This event was on June 18th (Etsy's birthday) and was meant to get crafty folks together to celebrate and be crafty together with those in your town and around the world. It was a great idea that was promoted on Etsy's storque and using Meetup.com to track the different meetups around the world. The top 50 received a goodie box from Etsy/ Readymade/ and Meetup, and we made the top 50! Woot, that was exciting. We had tons of fun at this party, the craft projects were create your own stamp, or sew a wristlet purse. The crafting supplies were picked up at a neat place here called Trash to Treasure a creative re-use center. I made the party hats and my friend Hollie of Blueberryshoes Art & Vintage made the fun photobooth w banners and fun props like scissors and a hot glue gun. Etsy sent the cute birdy- stay handmade backdrop. It was a great party and i hope many more pop up. Yay for crafty friends and Etsy! By the way, Happy Birthday Etsy! I love you.
Peace & Love!
