A couple of weeks ago I went to the Etsy Craft Party hosted at the new Poppytalk space. It feel that is so important to play and when I saw the event announced on twitter I had to pounce. The theme was Recapture (bringing new meaning to photographs) and we embroidered vintage photos. I had a lovely afternoon chatting it up with the other participants, eating yummy treats from Coco Cake Land and I even won a goodie bag!
I love the Poppytalk blog and their move from the online world into the "real" world with the retail/workshop space is just super. The space is just around the corner from two of my favourite stores Bird on a Wire (obvi) and Much and Little. Wonderful and dangerous.
The other night I couldn't sleep so I decided to watch Orange is the New Black and embroider into photos. Things got really fun when I decided to add a little paper into the mix too. Doing a craft activity when you can't sleep only wakes you up but I still think it was worth it.
