Mark Your Calendar: Etsy Craft Party

Craft parties always get me excited. As a child I was always creating something, whether it be new Barbie clothes or making a dollhouse with found objects, I thrived on the creativitiy that flowed through my veins. Even now as an adult, I lay awake at night with the gears turning in my brain dreaming of things I can do or create, when I have time or energy. Currently I work as a kindergarten teacher, which sometimes sucks the creative juice right out of me. My job requires me to be creative and I enjoy creating with my class. But there are times I crave ADULT activities and an Etsy Craft Party, could be just the ticket.

Every year, people from around the world come together on the same day in locally organised Etsy Craft Parties to create art and inspire each other. Now is your chance to plan your own Craft Party! This year's event is happening Friday, June 6, and the suggested theme is Recapture: Bring New Meaning to Old Photographs. Transform olde photographs into new handmade heirlooms using needle and thread, paint or a pen. Sign up to host Craft Party 2014 in your location today and then check out Etsy's Craft Party Site for downloadable goodies and inspiration. You don't have to host or join to get involved, create and craft along at home and share your #craftparty photos with @etsy. You can check out other parties around the world at Feel like getting your craft on?
