etsy austin craft riot

i cannot express to you what an amazing time i had at the craft riot this weekend. i met so many awesome people, purchased so many amazing goodies, and got to hang out with some of my favorite people!
my booth partner was the lovely allison of etsy houston.
i modeled, and later purchased, that cute little petticoat [from her] ;)
allison of swish!
just next door to us was my bestie, maria :)
her paintings and bottle caps were ALL the rage!


one of the coolest ladies i had the pleasure of meeting was renee!
renee and i were e-friends at first, until we discovered we were both doing craft riot.
and she was crazy nice and got us matching bear hats because of all the things we have in common :D

thanks so much to etsy austin for letting us be a part in such a fun show. there was a constant flow of people, everyone was so nice, and it was really inspiring to see how "together" their organization was.
for me, one of the best parts, was seeing how excited both guys and girls became when i told them about the Bipolar Bunnies and Mustachasauruses.  Hearing Allison's dad, and a couple other guys, go around saying "grrrr...feisty!" was also a load of laughs :)

and also - i am such a jerk. one of my bestest friends let me crash at her place for the weekend.
THANKS LOUISE!!! :)
and yet, this is the ONLY photo i have of her. I AM A JERKFACE.
i <3 my weezy.

stay tuned...i'm showin' off some craft riot purchases next!

[don't forget to check our my packaging tutorial! ;) and maybe even leave a little comment love!]

  7. You're so cute with the knee socks and petticoat! Sounds like a great time too! I am a bit jealous, there isn't much of a scene near me. Or should I say yet?

  10. Love the pics! Glad you like the hat. I am on a mission to get all the colors she makes. I'm so happy you had a good time at Craft Riot. We worked really hard on it & are already making plans for the 4th annual Craft Riot. We are hoping to be in a bigger hall in the same building next year.
    Take care!
