New beginnings...

(I'll save a place in my heart)

Our beginnings were small and a spur of the moment thing, born out of the need to talk and be with like minded people... I had made the front page of etsy for the first time and while doing my grocery shopping I excitedly told the check out girl at the supermarket of this accomplishment. She had no idea what I was talking about but nodded and smiled anyway, hurrying my groceries through as fast as possible. It was not long after this that we gathered as a group of local etsy sellers together for regular get togethers to talk about all things etsy. After these small beginnings our little local get together has rapidly grown into a group of passionately creative Kiwi's with a diverse range of skills and expertise.

We have started this blog to promote ourselves and other creative beings where we will feature regular tutorials, studio visits, giveaways, interviews, shop updates and lots of other crafty bits and pieces... so stay tuned.

    Sleep and her sisters is an etsy store I've seen before but had forgotten to favourite (off to do it now)... Think I'm going to need to do some shopping when I'm back in the homeland over Christmas

  10. Hi,
    I have just found your blog and it`s great. I`m a kiwi now living in Melbourne and next year i`m looking at holding a craft event for both Kiwi and Australian craft in Auckland, with a market etc. I would love to have some feed back from you on what sorts of things you would like to see at such an event, market stalls, craft supply stalls , if it should be over 2 days or one day.


We love hearing what you have to say, please feel welcome to leave your comments...
