A little over a week ago, RANCHO COCOA (a.k.a., me and Missy), along with TREEHOUSE KID & CRAFT, hosted the worldwide ETSY CRAFT PARTY day. Everyone was invited to come down to the Treehouse store last friday to come hang out, have some snacks, and work on craft projects before hitting up the town for a big night out. Needless to say, it was the perfect setting for a bunch of folks to come together to create and make new friends...the theme of the night was "WISH YOU WERE HERE"...
We brought the BUTTON PRESS so people could design and punch out their very own ONE-INCH BUTTONS...
An enormous THANK YOU goes out to Treehouse for hosting the event at the very last minute, and thank you to everyone who came to hang out...next time, we'll plan this thing out way in advance!
