Etsy Meet up

I went to the Jumpstart your creative enterprise with Blurb, Etsy UK and Moo meet up in London on Friday, I met some lovely people and got advice from  photographer Alex Brenner on my photos and generally had a good day. 

The etsy team started the day with a lecture on starting up your business then a talk on photography by Alex. Then Moo told us a bit about marketing and there lovely range of products. After some sandwitches and tea Blurb talked about how they can help you make your own book.
Everyone there was very helpful and I came away with lots of ideas. 
I met some lovely talented people, hear are some pics of there work. 

This is isamo crochet, Izabela makes really amazing shawls and intricate crochet earrings, you can see more of her work on her blog or in her etsy shop.

i also met Amy Walters who is an illustrator and makes cards and jewellery inspired by that. 
You can also see more of her work on her etsy shop and blog.

At the end of the day we all got our photos taken with our work for a Blurb book, witch was a little odd but fun.
