If you're tired of hearing me talk about Etsy, you're just going to have to stop reading this blog because I am FULLY entrenched in their brand at this point.
It's borderline gross how much of a love affair I'm having with Etsy these days.
And I haven't even told you about the summit yet.
Last week I was asked if I'd be planning an Etsy Craft Party. Because I suffer from a mental illness that doesn't allow me to say no to anything that relates to handmade goods, naturally I said yes.
What's an Etsy Craft Party you ask?
It's is a one-day, nationwide celebration of meeting and making. Basically, creative people/Etsy enthusiasts across North America organize craft nights with a bunch of people (we have 71 signed up so far!) and we all stick to a similar theme to create (potentially) fabulous works of art.
This year’s theme is Recapture - Bringing New Meaning to Photographs.
I've booked the social hall at the Almonte United Church (106 Elgin Street) and will be hosting (with the help of some very creative friends) a FREE 3-hour workshop during which we'll transforming photographs into display-worthy works of art using a variety of craft supplies and creative techniques including embroidery, painting and more.
This event is open to crafty folk of all levels of experience, aged 14+.
Come with an open mind and a creative spirit...and lets have fun!
