Pictures are worth a thousand words so here are some photos from our inaugural Eco Etsy Meet Up that was held at Etsy Headquarters on Friday June 24th.
Myra (Herban|Luxe), Tia (Primrose Press), Katherine (Reiter8) and Corey (Sansmap) were amazing in organizing the event and putting up with me and my bazillion e-mails. Thank you guys for being the gracious hostesses with the mostesses! See our own banner that Myra was able to negotiate? Isn’t it purrrdy???
It was an intimate meeting of 11 members who were brave enough to fight through Friday afternoon NYC traffic to get to Brooklyn. There were a few members who couldn’t attend due to last minute snags but those who were able to make it took planes, trains, buses, (but no boats!) and automobiles. And we were so glad they made it…even if some took over 3 hours!! It was great to see members who we read about and chat online, in person. And to learn how to make handmade journals from Tia too!
Etsy admins (from top left clockwise) Vanessa, Danielle, and Morgan were at hand to help us feel welcome and we couldn’t have had a better meet up without their hospitality. Morgan was especially appreciative of “The Basket” of goodies from the team.
We WILL have annual Meet Ups from now on – and possibly traveling around the country – so if you missed it this year, make sure to attend the next one, wherever it might be!
And for those of you who missed seeing it on LIVEStream (Thank You Patrick for filming and putting us up on LIVEStream! You rock!), the video of Tia’s tutorials and member interviews will be available for viewing, staring Monday June 27th on LIVEStream.
Also, did you hear about the giveaway that’s going on RIGHT NOW? It will close tonight so enter to win one of the journals we made. Check here for details.
Eco Etsy Team’s Meet Up was a historic event, even for Etsy as we were the first team ever to hold a meet up at its headquarters. And they want to hold more meet ups like this in the future. Imagine…a new event making for Etsy, all because of us! We rock!!
See you next year!!
