The Storque Is Finally Here! (Lotsa Links!)

Etsy's long-awaited Storque blog has finally launched... and that means, I have lots of links to share with you.

First, here's an article by my friend Mallory, aka Miss Malaprop, aka dismantled designs, that she wrote about her trip to Bazaar Bizarre/Maker Faire in California a few months back. Mallory won third place in the Etsy Upcycling contest, and due to the second place winner being unable to attend BAZBIZ (which was their prize for 2nd place), Mallory was given the opportunity to go. Being the saint that she is, she offered to represent the New Orleans Craft Mafia there and staff a table with all of our stuff! So this is her report on how that went.

And, here is a video interview with her about winning the contest and going to BAZBIZ:

Pretty cool, huh? If you look closely, you can see my "RIDE" tshirts on the table in our booth at BAZBIZ!

Lastly, I also found this video while poking around Etsy's page (which hosts all their videos). Some of you might remember me mentioning last February that Erin from Etsy had come down to New Orleans to meet up with all the area Etsians, and that she was making a video documentary of her trip. Well this is the first part of her video, just a short snippet where she meets all of us for the first time at Flora's Cafe in the Marigny:

I'm certainly hoping there will be more coming from Erin, as she shot interviews with all of us in our studios (which for me was outside in my friend Rachelle's backyard, since I was basically working out of the trunk of my car). She did a how-to piece with me, on stencilling and making t-shirts/clocks, so I'm of course wondering if that will ever see the light of day. Who knows! Guess I'll just have to keep checking back.

Anyways, that's all for now, but definitely poke around the Storque pages, cuz there's lots of good stuff there... articles, videos, how-to's, interviews w/crafters, and many an inside look behind the scenes at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn.
