Planning a launch party was the last thing on my mind when I was creating a website and App, but after nearly 11 months in the making, when it came near to the end I could see all of my hard work coming together and I felt an overwhelming need to celebrate and how better than with like minded people. Eleven months in the making and every bit of Craft Candy had been scrutinised, from the logo, font and layout to the functions within the App. As a crafter myself I kept thinking, ‘what would I want from a craft finding App?’ and each time, map and directions to events came up tops, so I incorporated it and with the techno whiz of GPS, the App can now pinpoint where you are anywhere in the UK and tell you want is going on around you.
Anyway, back onto the launch party!
With the App having the potential of being such a big resource to crafters wanting to find and promote their events, I wanted a ‘crafty launch to remember and as you can see from the images, I think I managed to pull it off!
