Saturday night's event was so much fun!

Can you spot the etsy houston logo? ;)

Sally's valentine's garlands were such a hit!
And Cindy stopped by to help as well. :)

Andria, Emily, and I manned the bar area 
[with a LOT of help from a couple of very kind Lawndale Art Center Employees!]
If you came by for a beer you probably met us ;)

Handmade Nation was such an inspirational documentary! I'm not gonna lie - it was my first time watching it. The film was amazingly informative as well as hilarious :)

I think there were about 200 people...I know the chairs filled up and there were loads of folks standing around watching. The wall on the right of the photo below was completely lined with people once the documentary started.

Thanks to everyone that stopped by. I really hope we have more opportunities to volunteer at events like this :)

kickin' off 2011!

In case you missed the previous post, a bunch of us from Etsy Houston will be volunteering at an amazing [and FREE!] event located at the Lawndale Art Center and hosted by the
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.

Please join us Saturday, January 22nd, at 6pm at the Lawndale Art Center for some free St. Arnold's, our super awesome Valentine's Day garland DIY by Sally,
and a Handmade Nation book sale!

At 7pm the movie will play [about 1 hour] followered by a gallery talk by Jenine Bressner, an artist featured in Handmade Nation.

Please repost and share information about this event. We'd absolutely love to see your lovely faces there! :)
