I can't say no to a good party and when Etsy asks you host one of their biggest events of the year, you say yes. So that's exactly what happened earlier this month. I teamed up with Jenny and Sal to put our creative heads together and host our version of their Sydney Craft party coming up with an evening of cocktails, Motown hits, an embroidery inspiration wall and far too much sugar. We spent the night before cutting up thousands of little paper triangles, rushing around to make sure we had enough glue and other craft essentials but it was all worth it and no event would be complete with a post event celebration at Mary's. I tend to say yes to a lot of things and keep my life moving at a quick pace (that sometimes feels slightly out of control) but when I get to team up with girlfriends to do fun things that normally wouldn't happen, why would you ever say no?
This event was part of a global series of events that took place all around the world on 6 June - ours was just one of the Sydney celebrations - so check out #craftyparty to see what the rest of the world got up to.
