Happy Maker Day!

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…

celebrating maker faire day

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!
