Recap of Etsy party


Well, it's been an interesting and eventful weekend/week! On Friday the 18th, we had our Etsy Craft Party in honor of Etsy's (sixth?) birthday. It turned out great. We met a lot of people with many different interests and talents. I repeat: it turned out great. Here are some pictures my roommate Sara and I took of the event.

We received a box of party supplies from Etsy because our event was one of the top 50 on Meetup.com. (18th to be exact.) This box had some really cool stuff in it, which we were able to share with our guests. We got a silk-screening kit, a ton of glass paints, and various etsy and Pabst themed handouts.

Here I am freaking out about the kit we got.

Glass paint pens in my TheCraftateria jar I started but did not finish. Hopefully I'll have a better picture of the soon-to-be finished jar.

Cookie decorating supplies.

I made a banner for our porch from fabric scraps. It will hang there forever.

This is the result of the silk screening.

It seems like no one had really had any experience with this before, but after a try or two, we were all instantly hooked. I would love to be able to make my own screens. Perhaps a new hobby is about to be formed. (Because we all know I don't have enough things to learn how to do.)
A new friend brought a button-making machine. I love her.

Brooke (roommate #2) did henna!

She also made these marshmallow treats. They were stupid cute.

There was even someone doing face painting! Our party was just shy of a county fair.


We made a lot of new friends, and will definitely be doing more parties like this in the future. Of the new friends we made, one of them is hosting a book making party next month! I'm pretty interested in this and hope to be able to attend. Hopefully there will be a post about this soon!

Up next: Washington DC!

Craft Party!

Well, you probably have noticed my absence from this blog, despite having all the free time in the world. This is due to (among other things) the craft party that my roommates and I are hosting as The Craftateria. I'm pretty excited for everything to get underway, but also a little stressed.

Yesterday, we found this write-up in the Nashville Scene, which is awesome! (However I'm a little afraid way more people will show up than anticipated!)

I can't believe we made the Scene!! Crazy!

I'll be sure to take tons of pictures, but it may be a few days before I can upload because I'm driving to DC tomorrow!

Treasury love!


Quick update to announce more random treasury love!

Also, I'm working on a custom shirt (larger size) of the same design for this girl. (FYI, she makes some pretty badass jewelry.)

Lately I've been working on the above custom shirt and a couple special edition black robots. One is for a friend and the other will probably end up on etsy.

I'm hosting an etsy party at our house on June 18th and I'm thinking about making something cute to wear. After all, it's an etsy party. How can I not wear something I've made? Remember that purple flowered fabric I have? I think I should use that, but I'm still not sure what to make. Leaning towards a simple dress to showcase the fabric, but I don't know.
