Mom took the empty nest syndrome poorly this year.
Mom took the empty nest syndrome poorly this year.

My sister and I make a point to sit down with stacks of awkward family holiday photos every Christmas and relentlessly harpoon the subjects’ crocheted reindeer sweaters or family update letter drama. But it’s time to turn the tables. On Thursday from 6-9pm, EtsyLabs in DUMBO is hosting “Making Smiles Bright: A Holiday Photo Card Event” where you can recreate awkward holiday photos with your urban family to turn into digital cards, or discounted printed cards. They will have three settings to choose from: I’m Dreaming of a (Black and) White Christmas, Jingle Bell Bottoms and My Yule Log Has Something to Tell You (a Twin Peaks-inspired ski lodge coziness). The event is $5 and all of the stages are furnished with decor from Etsy itself.

As with any good Brooklyn holiday party, there will be festive food and drink, raffles (of the stage decor), workshops (on how to make your own paper), plus you get a digital print of your photo or discounted hard copy from Moo.

For more information and to buy $5 tickets, go here. Etsy Labs Brooklyn, 55 Washington St., suite 712, Dumbo.
