Most of us!
By now, you’ve probably already said to yourself…”Self, I wish I had gotten off the couch and made a key chain last night!”
Well, I’m not trying to make you feel worthless, but I do think it’s appropriate to share photos from our excellent adventure last night! In case you hadn’t heard, yesterday was Etsy.com’s 5th birthday. We celebrated in style at my house by having a DIY extravaganze…. handmade food (soooo yummy!), handmade items, all created by women wearing mostly handmade goods!!! I think the photos will speak for themselves….definitely let me know if you’d like to be included in our next great DIY adventure!

closing out the night: Jenny Rose and Faith with a stolen camera!
This really was a spectacular evening.
At one point, I looked around my house and realized that I had no idea who most of the people inside were. How fabulous is that!?! There’s something about the art and process of simply making something that really does draw a community together. hmmmm. So many options!!!
