Happy First White House Maker Faire Day to all of you maker gems out there! As a fellow maker, I am so delighted to celebrate a day that celebrates creativity, wonder, + the tinkering spirit.
I’ll be spending the day maker style, making, painting, creating, but there are a number of ways to celebrate the day and the makers that make our lives so much prettier. In fact, why not have a party…
1 // Break out the bubbly + get the party started. Keep it cool in this amazingly handcrafted resin chiller by Tina Frey.
2 // A party isn’t really a party without garlands + confetti. Krissy Osborne combines the two with her dotted spools of decoration goodness.
3 // Keep those cocktails fresh + spills at bay with fancy linens. These polka dotted pretties are hand painted by A Sensible Habit.
4 // Style it modern with simple florals (er, air plants). Sea & Asters makes it easy to bring the outdoors in with their tiny pods of perfection.
5 // Get to crafting. (Yes, this is totally a craft party — it’s Maker Faire Day!) Jenny Blair offers the sweetest DIY embroidery kits so anyone can be a maker!
All of these items are available in my Great.ly shop, where you can find a smattering of fantastically handcrafted goods from other artisans that I just love. Shop my wares here, there, + there too! Because there’s no better way to celebrate Maker Faire Day than supporting the makers!
The painting used to frame this graphic is available as a print by Jaime Derringer — go see, it’s awesome! And only $25!
