Spring Bash 2015 Photos Are Up!

We hope everyone's summer is off to a fantastic start! Here in Dallas the weather has been pretty mild (aside from the monsoons), so we're pretty grateful that the real heat hasn't set in yet.

It is once again time to show off the AWESOME photos from this year's Spring Bash. Former Etsy Dallas Team Member Yony Kim of YLK Photography was kind enough to document the whole shebang, and the photos are now available for viewing on Flickr. Follow this link to see the album!

Here's a quick preview - enjoy!

The new Freckled Chicken bus looks great next to the line of shoppers waiting for Bash Bags!

Eager guests grabbing free goodies from our awesome volunteers. The absolutely gorgeous entry designs were provided by Iza Pearl Designs - thank you!

A packed house.

Kidlets crafting away at the make-and-take craft tables.

Photobooth fun! Backdrop provided by Iza Pearl Designs - thanks!

Happy makers and shoppers.

All these and so much more at our Flickr site. Thank you SO MUCH, Yony! They look great!

Pretty up your pics at the Etsy Craft Party

It’s time for the annual Etsy Craft Party and you’re invited! Etsy Dallas and City Craft are hosting a local gathering. Come join us for snacks, drinks and photo crafts. This free event includes three craft projects.

Choose your own project:
1) embroidering directly onto photographs or photocopies of photos;
2) embroidering on photos that have been printed onto fabric (we have two photos, courtesy of our amazing and talented Yony of YLK Photography, on fabric for you to choose from: blue bonnets and Big Tex);
3) and especially for kids: making photo collages with cropped photos, scrapbook paper, etc.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own photos to use for the projects. We will have some supplies for those who don't bring photos. And be sure to get your photo taken in the photo booth too.

In addition to the photo crafts, City Craft is opening their sewing machines to those who may want to try sewing. How amazing is that?!? It's going to be a great night. We can't wait to see what you create. Save the date!

Time: 7 - 9 p.m.
Date: Friday, June 6, 2014
Place: City Craft
2104 Irving Blvd.

Sponsor Spotlight: Forever, Always Photography

Etsy Dallas is delighted to have Forever, Always Photography back as our official photographer for the 6th Annual Spring Bash. Megan will be on hand to snap photos in the free photo booth and will capture all of the Bashy fun of the day too. 

Megan is offering a special right now on 1 hour sessions with all photos released for $100, and her mini sessions in the bluebonnets are a steal (only $50) for a Texas spring time essential.

Megan also does event photography. She recently photographed a family event for me, and I can tell you that she is really great with kids and all those crazy relatives too! She is a real professional: prompt, polite, and so very talented! She somehow seemed to be everywhere at once, capturing all of our memorable moments at once. 

See more of Megan's beautiful work on Facebook and swing by the photo booth at the Spring Bash to meet her. 

Sponsor Spotlight: Forever Always Photography

Forever Always Photography is a new Jingle Bash sponsor this year, and we are so excited to partner with Megan. She’ll be working the Photo Booth at the bash, so stop by, check out the TOP SECRET photo booth design (by our very own Rosemary Gutierrez) and let Megan snap fun, funny, funky photos to commemorate all of your bashy memories.

Megan will also be shooting vendor photos and candids throughout the day, so make sure you check out our flickr site once we upload all the photos. And, if you want to ask Megan about her rates and portfolio on the day of the bash, just tell her Walker sent ya.

Rescue Me!

It's no secret...Etsy Dallas loves pets! We are especially fond of rescues.  

This year at the Jingle Bash you can have your picture taken in the Photo Booth and give to a great cause. All proceeds from the Etsy Dallas Photo Booth will 
benefit DFW Rescue Me, an all volunteer animal rescue organization. 
Their goal is to save as many dogs as possible from euthanasia and adopt them into loving homes where they will be cherished.  




And guess what? They are bringing some of these adorable, adoptable pups to the Jingle Bash so you can pick out a new forever friend to take home with you. 
I think I've already got mine picked out. How about you? 
You can see lots more available cuties at the Rescue Me website
on Facebook, and twitter @DFWRescueMe.

Etsy Dallas + Make Craft Party Recap

Paco the Donkey Piñata

Etsy Dallas, the local craft collective, celebrated Etsy Inc.'s birthday with Make Shop*Studio on Friday, June 18th. We enjoyed some DIY crafts from Make, sipped on boozy party punch, munched on cupcakes, entered some sweet raffles and gave out prizes, and bashed a handmade piñata! (RIP Paco the Donkey) Those who arrived early snagged a bag of Etsy Dallas party favors at our FREE Etsy Dallas Photobooth.

Thanks to all who came out and partied with us! Many cities across the globe were putting on their own Craft Parties and Dallas had the biggest in the world. So thanks for making Dallas the capital of handmade cool!

Etsy Dallas Goes to Public School

Three cheers for the Austin design collective, Public School! Some Etsy Dallas folks who were selling at the first Renegade Austin show earlier this month got a chance to cheese it up in front of the camera at PS's neat-o photo booth. Class is in session! *bell rings*
