West Elm + Etsy + 5 Boroughs Team = A fun night!

Everyone got to make an ornament or two for themselves and YMCA!

West Elm and Etsy joined together on Dec 1 to launch a national party at the West Elm locations. West Elm selected Etsy sellers and put them at their locations around US to sell for one evening, and Etsy folks hosted a handmade craft night on handmade paper ornaments. In New York, 5 Boroughs Team was there to help at the craft night table. And it was packed! Many good friends of Etsy came to play with us and we had a blast making ornaments to hang on this beautiful tree, which will go to YMCA on 63rd Street, Manhattan.

Well, my little handmade paper ornament may not be as colorful...but it is also made with loads of love. 
I wish you all a very happy holiday and a fantastic time with your family this season!
