Wow! What fun we had at my Etsy Craft Party on Saturday! I want to share everything with you! For today, I will start with Etsy, Etsy sellers, Etsy stores, generosity, connections, and the raffle prize...
Every June Etsy helps crafters mingle and make at worldwide Craft Parties. They offer a theme like Recapture: Give New Meaning to Your Photographs. They supply templates for signs, name tags, emails, etc. They give DIY instructions for recommended projects. They even help cover supply costs for parties with over 25 guests by providing the hostess with an Etsy voucher.
We made 5 projects at the party all of varying difficulty. These are the inspirations from Etsy. They are listed from easiest to hardest. Stay tuned for the How-Tos of each.
