And our first Etsy Craft Party in Vancouver, was just that: a great opportunity to craft and meet new local Etsy sellers and crafters. We love the idea of a craft party and were super excited when we found out that Emi of Whiskers and Lipstick was organizing one at West Elm, an amazing modern furniture and home decor store in Vancouver.

With a mix of Etsy sellers and local crafters of different skill levels, these were both simple yet super adorable.

Spring market. It was great to finally properly introduce ourselves as well as chat with her about her experiences at different local craft fairs and markets. She is quite new as a seller but you can tell that with her talent, she has much in store!

Therefore the many photos that we took! And she was very clever in suggesting using the lovely West Elm furniture setting for our group photo =).

We had a great time and look forward to the exciting events Emi has instore for us all later this year! Do follow our friends on Instagram @lanabetty, @emi_lerzo, @quirkypaper for more photos and for possible future crafty events! Big thanks again to Emi.
