Romanian Etsians finally meet!

It was about time we met! The three graces of Etsy from Bucharest, Romanian capital :)
So here we are, Raluca, Anda and me, having fun at the "Street Delivery" event - an yearly cultural festival that takes a few streets and close them down for car traffic, so people can reclaim them and just walk by foot, doing street art, manifesting for a thing or another, dance and enjoy themselves.

(each year, the building in the background is painted differently)

Anda bought some lovely earrings made by by Atelier13 to help the girls at Fire Fairies be the first women team that participates at Mongolia charity rally. I, being cheaper, only bought a little spicy brownie that was so yummy and also contributed to support the gas for 6 km of their journey.

I loved the atmosphere... it was like finally, busy people with serious jobs, have found a playground, where they can be as eccentric and as creative as they wish.

A refreshing mix of tatooed guys, hats from the 60's, handmade items and protest placards, all surrounded by a live interesting melange of music styles.

It was fun. And it was so nice to meet the persons behind the beautiful handmade shops that I've known for so long! Funny, we live a few streets distance away yet we met on an international site!

Secret fabric swap!

So, together with a few of my European Street Team mates, we decided to swap between us some fabric scraps that we no longer need. Today I received a lovely package from Gia , all wrapped up in pretty Greek stamps.

I quickly rushed and opened it... Soooo cute! Loved the pretty fabric and I can't wait to use it :)

But what really impressed me was the care and love with which it was wrapped... oh-oh, the secret package I've sent to Diana is not pretty wrapped, why didn't I though of that? Well, I hope the content will make it up for it...
