3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Secret Santa Big Wish Swap (signups 8/26/07-11/05/07) on: October 15, 2007 08:24:07 AM
Alright, this is the 3rd time I've tried to post this, lets hope it works this time.

About me - I'm a 30 year old programmer in Chicago with a degree in fine art.  I love anything victorian or art nouveau inspired.  The colors I hate - white and jewel tones.  The colors I love - any color in the pink/red/orange spectrum, mint/sage/olive greens and black. Alright now to my list (again!)

1. Extra long fingerless gloves like the ones below in any color or combination of my favorite colors above.
http://www.wists.com/EvilTadpole/gloves/60e6931f3c1996828f2fbaea55a35181

2. An awesome bolero jacket like this one that fits my 38D chest.
http://www.wists.com/EvilTadpole/bolero/a345ab612a04b148d4486a6266803b25

3. A knitted or crocheted hat (adult big head size), either classy like this one:
http://www.wists.com/EvilTadpole/hat/9030611c45267b25ee4253cc0e92951a
or sassy like this one:
http://www.wists.com/EvilTadpole/hat/2e8f492e3e8ecebb385a874ab939145e

4. A big poofy black lolita skirt, I'm a ready to wear 14 or Large.

5. A sexy sexy corset!  I'm a 38D

6. An ugly, old school, kitchen witch like this one.  Definatly not one of those new cutsey ones (puke!)
http://www.wists.com/EvilTadpole/kitchen_witch/a6711bdd9f0e1f6063a21ee3cc2b2cac

7. A super extra long knit or crocheted scarf in my favorite colors listed above.

8. Some pretty pretty art nouveau or victorian inspired jewelry.  I'm more into earrings and bracelets then anything, but necklaces are cool too.

9. I like evil or weird marionettes - so if you make these, I'd be so pleased to add it to my collection.

10. And of course, anything from my wist list... http://www.wists.com/EvilTadpole

I couldn't see the pictures either, but from the way I do it, I'm going to take a crack on what they might be.

For me first you want to design you logo etc.  Then make sure it is reversed (make it look like what it would look like in a mirror.)  Most graphic programs have a Flip Horizontal once your image is finished.

Next, I open MS Word.  In Word, Under the Tools Menu - you should see Letters and Mailings and under that envelopes and labels, open that then flip to the labels tab.  Click the options button and choose a label size with its height slightly smaller than the ribbon width.  Make sure the radio button full page of the same label is selected, then click the New Document button.  You should see a page with boxes representing the labels. 

Paste your logo into each box.  Put your iron on paper in the printer and print!! (But test on regular paper first to make sure it comes out of the printer correctly)

Cut the labels out in the paper, place them, tacky side to ribbon (the paper side should be up facing you), Iron on and tada - you got a ribbon label.

I would always err on the side of safety.  I know it sucks to see some people get away with infringement, but do whats best for you.  I found a font I really wanted to use for my logo.  It was on one of those free sites, but only for personal use.  I tracked down the creator (he was in Denmark of all places) and we came to an agreement on using his font for my commercial purposes.  Got complete use for commerical use for a pretty sweet deal (did a barter thing - apparently he preferred a few items he couldn't get in Denmark to money) as long as I give credit to him.

It can never hurt to contact the person whose stuff you want to use.  You never know.

For my website ...which is work I've done and contains an online store...I'm using all my own graphics. I also have used the name 'Batty's Boutique' for the past three years. Am I right to assume that it's mine? The name.....if someone else starts selling craftiness under my Batty's Boutique name am I allowed to throw out a cease & desist or do I need some kind of license or deed or something saying that Batty's Boutique is mine?


I guess I would ask, is it the name of your store or is it a name you use to brand items.  Most people don't go so far to brand their store name (because it cost moolah!) unless you are talking about Target, Kmart, etc.  Now if you are using that name as a branding name for your items - then I would look into trademarking it.

I've actually been using this technique (well kinda) for awhile, except, because I'm ultra lazy and don't like sewing labels into cloth, I actually just use a mini iron and tranfer it directly to the product (but thats just my preferance).  In this same vein (with the printer), I made a bunch of stickers to include on boxes and tissue wrapping. 

Also for those who want to know how the tranfers hold up, I discovered the printing iron-ons around 1998 when I was in college.  I made a whole load of ironic t-shirts and I still have a few of them today.  They will fade after some washings, but they will fade in they will not crack like decals.

When you get a little more advanced, once you really want to start going into the figure, I would also suggest studying anatomy, take a class if you can.  It really helps to understand how the skeletel structure balances and the placement and movement of all the muscles.  But like I said, wait until your comfortable with the drawing fundementals first.
