Better Late than Never!

Hey everyone! ¬†I have been incredibly MIA as of late and too busy to post on the FoldIT Creations blog. ¬†Between juggling my 2 day jobs, making things and doing shows its been a bit of a time management¬†challenge (oh and I was in Mexico too!). ¬†I have just finished my art teaching job for the summer and soon will finish at the the cafe I work at and move back to Kawarthas region of Ontario where I will teach English and work as a live-in camp counsellor/ teacher for the summer. ¬†I can’t wait. Campfires, boating on the lake, archery and all that fun summer stuff I did as a kid. ¬†The Etsy shop will be closed as of the 22nd of June and will open up again in late August for business so if there is anything you have been eyeing for summer get your order in before the 22nd and you should be fine.

This past weekend was filled with Etsy related fun. On Friday I attended the really fun Etsy Craft Party here in Toronto at Sew Be It Studio (thanks for the gracious hosting). ¬†We came, we drank, we crafted! ¬†With an emphasis on the drinking and crafting! ¬†Nothing like red wine and glitter (I’ve been dusting if off me for days). ¬† It was a lot of fun and I met a lot of new people from the Etsy community which is always nice when you have been shut up for weeks making things. ¬†This weekend was also the Annual Toronto Etsy Street Team Springtime Marketplace. ¬†I did this one last year and it is always a well planned event with lots of other Toronto-based Etsians showcasing their goods offline. ¬†Thanks for all the hard work to those who organized! ūüôā

Finally, on Sunday we were at the Annex Flea right here in my Toronto neighbourhood. ¬†Throughout the summer it will be taking place behind Honest Ed’s in the parking parking lot rain or shine‚Ķ this week it rained! However, only those awesome hardcore people came out and that made our day! ¬†FoldIT Creations shared a tent with the new to the handmade-scene Jinny Wong of Fuzzy Belly Creations. ¬†It was a pleasure to share a tent with these awesome people and their cute little baby boy who was so easy going. ¬†We hope to see you again <3.

And enough typing‚Ķ. ¬†here are some photos! ūüôā XO
