I attended a craft party last Friday in honor of Etsy's birthday. I know many people around the country hosted or attended similar events and it was awesome to mingle with some creative folk. Some friends and I headed down to Pearl in Fort Lauderdale for the event hosted by the Hollywood Craft Mafia. I had never attended an event quite like this before! Out of the various craft options, I decided to make a stamp which you can see its purpley majesty above. It came out pretty cool, but I was feeling rather uninspired. During the event, we were also given special discounts to Pearl so I took advantage and stocked up on a few things I needed for TMB.
I've discovered two new Etsy shops with I am in LOVE with and wanted to share some fellow makers with you! They're the kind of shops that really make me wish I wasn't so damn tight on money. The first shop is leemeszaros which makes merit badges for silly and wonderful reasons like for being "Busy as a Beaver" or "Doing It Like Rabbits." I feel some intense early holiday gift shopping coming on in my very near future. I just want a whole jacket covered with them.
My other new favorite is kharaledonne which sells hand painted lockets and I want like 10 of them so I can wear them all at once. I love finding new and exciting shops on Etsy that sell original products!
Just a San Francisco gal sharing creative pursuits, inspiration, and other things that interest me.
