[caption id="attachment_1524" align="aligncenter" width="610"]Momomints Mint Icecream Bear Keychain at the Etsy Vancouver Craft Party Momomints Mint Icecream Bear Keychain at the Etsy Vancouver Craft Party[/caption] We love attending these events to meet new crafters and catch up with our fellow Etsy sellers. Most of the attendees aren't even Etsy sellers, but those who just want to learn something new. Some attendees are artists but haven't yet tried selling on Etsy before! With a good mix of individuals, it's cool to share our experiences and answer questions to those unfamiliar with Etsy. A tip to those who do sell on Etsy: always bring/wear one of your Etsy items. It's a great conversation starter and a great way to share what you do on Etsy!

Rachel, our host, decided to teach us all how to make paper gems! If you know Rachel, this craft project was very much "her".

Then with some careful patience, lots of cutting and glue we were able to assemble some colourful 3D gems.
