Event Name:We Make Stuff...Music, Art, & Fashion Date:Saturday, September 19th Time:7:00pm to 12:00am Location:The Scoot Inn, 1308 E 4th St Admission:$6 at the door Website:www.wemakestuff.us Contact:email@example.com
Feeling crafty? We are! On Saturday, September 19, We Make Stuff...music, art, & fashion show presented by Electric Promotions will be host to a bash bursting at the handmade seams. Fashionistas, mad crafters, music lovers and skateboarders will converge at The Scoot Inn for a completely one-of-a-kind party – the kind where you can design your own t-shirt, take in a band and see a fashion show - and you're invited.
First things first: the music. We Make Stuff attendees will enjoy a musical set from local rockstars like Hollywood Gossip at 10:30, Lost Werks at 8:30, and Panjoma at 9:30. Watch models strut the runway in a fashion show featuring kicky designs by Tara Tonini, Jinxedaposed Clothing, Malissa Long, accessory designer Dainty Daisy Creations, and talented handbag designer *annemarie*. Models Ruby Joule, Coco Lectric, Goldie Candela, and Pearl Lux of The Jigglewatts, AFAW nominee Haley Penlaber, and fab members of the Lonestar Roller Girls work their walks for these designers, who have been featured everywhere from Austin Fashion Awards to the Modish Blog. Event and fashion photography by John Pesina.
Siren's Salon & Electra Beauty Lounge will be styling up the runway with outstanding up-do's and make-up for the We Make Stuff show. Shop cool vendors like SweetWolf, Chels-E.com, Peace Boutique, April Wright Design, Vintage Rehab, Merrit Gade, Nepenthe's Bathtime, Dainty Daisy Creations, *annemarie*, maneki, Ape-Gear, Wings of Addiction, Diamonds and Guns by Action Jackson, & DevilGirl Design. Be sure to rock out your style at the event in the photo booth by Trevor Ray Thompson. After you capture the moment, check out the half-pipe and rad skateboard demos provided by the guys at Find n’ Grind skate shop.
We Make Stuff wouldn't be complete without indulging your own crafty creativity, would it? Stop by the Team Etsy Austin booth to get your own “I make stuff” t-shirt, then dive into make n' take projects with fabulous ladies of The WonderCraft, recently featured in Austin Monthly. Screen your own shirt design with new screen shop, Under Pressure, and reward yourself with tasty (and complimentary) treats from Nadamoo and Treaty Oak Rum.
And finally, because we know Austinites are not only wild crafters but discerning art critics too, we invite you to be our official skateboard art judges! Check out hand-painted and crafted skateboard decks by amazing designers and artists like Jason Silver, Tom Cox, Anne Genung, Wendy Offield, Candace Carlisle, Sara Hasslinger and many more. After tallying your votes, we'll reward the winners with gift baskets filled with local goodies, art supplies, and the opportunity to be featured in a future gallery showcase.
Proceeds from We Make Stuff will benefit Art From the Streets (AFTS). Art From the Streets is a non-profit, volunteer-driven art class program that provides a safe and encouraging environment where the positive spirit of homeless people is nurtured through artistic expression.
The first 100 people to arrive at The Scoot Inn will receive a special We Make Stuff goody bag, filled with one-of-a-kind crafts and reusable items.
Hello to all of our faithful readers. It has recently been brought to our attention that another new sample box website has popped up, containing word-for-word copyrighted text from our Sweet Delight Divalicious Sample Boxes website. This is just unbelievable!!!
We usually try not to "call out" businesses for any reason, however we feel that this time we must warn our readers and customers about this deceptive website. It is called The Sweetest Box (hmmm...wonder why they would choose that name?) and they are claiming to be the owners/authors of OUR blog, Delightful Divas In Business and are even linking to it on their FAQ's page!!!
Can you believe this?! Check out this screenshot where we have caught them in the act!...(click on the image to enlarge - and please notice the words that are circled)
Please notice how they are calling themselves the "sweetest" box and have even left the word "divalicious" in their faq's page (amid all of the other copyrighted text from our site). But the most absurd part is that they are trying to tell others not to steal content from their website by claiming that it is copyrighted. Strange.
Our website content is protected by Canadian and International Copyright Laws. We would prefer not to take legal action against The Sweetest Box website, however stealing website content is a crime and we will stop at nothing to make sure that they remove our copyrighted material from their pages. We have been advised to contact them via email before taking further action and that is exactly what we intend to do right now.
In the meantime, please spread the word about The Sweetest Box and warn your friends that it is in no way connected to this Delightful Divas In Business blog or to the Sweet Delight Divalicious Sample Boxes website.
....and more new companies will be added soon! Stay tuned!
For a complete list of September contributors, please check out the Peek Inside The Box page. We will continue to update it over the course of the next few weeks. Also, be sure to sign up for our newsletter to find out when the boxes go on sale. We will be announcing the big sale date soon!
These handmade beauties were created with little tulip flowers that are minty green in color and an array of clear Swarovski crystals. Snag a pair. You'll love them! (By the way...all purchases from this shop come wrapped in custom gift wrapping...perfect for those special occasions!)
Check out these 2 large Hula Girl and Palm Tree Tags from Papertivity. They are made with heavy duty cardstock and come in pretty ocean blue colors with Hawaiian images. Would make great tags for summer scrapbooks or bookmarks for summer reading!!
Be sure to check out the Papertivity shop on Etsy for more cool finds. Pssst...right now, they are having a "Two Dollars Or Less Sale" on select items. Hurry over and check it out!
Just want to let you know that we will return next week with new blog posts and updates to our website. Until then, we will be out of the office enjoying our summer holidays and some "fun in the sun" . Don't worry, though.....we will do our best to respond to all emails as usual during this time.
