1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Help Me, want to make an Etsy on: October 31, 2010 08:19:10 PM
hey there i don't know if this is the right place to put this but here goes,

I'm looking into making an Etsy account but i have no idea what to put in it to sell. it's been a while since I've done anything crafty (i do cross stitch and embroider, my knotted bracelets some of great complexity, some knitting mostly scarves but that's due to what my friends ask of me, and bead work) i also paint (on any surface) and i work as a graphic designer, well technically I'm a graphic illustrator (my specialty is typography and retro graphics, i also can do .

so i am asking out of all these what would you think would be best option for me to sell. my art? please give me some input as that would be great
2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 36 ENTRIES / Oooo weeee ooohhhh i look just like who? Weezer inspired art on: March 04, 2009 11:03:38 PM
ok so this is just a painting and i think it looks much better in person by the way but here goes

first the actual painting



might not be the best but here is the story that goes with it,

as most of you may know i work full time at a supermarket. fun i know but did you know that faintly VERY faintly in the back ground most supermarkets have music playing. in fact my chain has it's own radio station. well every soo often we here the same songs and the other week every time i started work and finished it i herd Buddy holly by weezer which was awsome because i love that song. unfortunetly my ipod knew this and somehow i managed to get it reoccuring on it for three days strait.

so at this point i have my song my painting style is more an homage to the Clerks cartoon show crossed with my Retro-y style of drawing i slip into every now and then. when my brother saw just the marker art for the painting he asked if it was Dante in a mask because of this. oie to me. anywho that's how this came about

the painting it's self is of Buddie holly and he is singing Ooo wee oohhh i look just like buddy holly... yah it's backwards i know. also the colour verents are actully layers of paint to give depth but i failed at it. meh. i hope you like it guys

4  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 31 ENTRIES / A ZEN-satonal garden on: October 05, 2008 09:06:18 PM
Hello my fellow craftsers. i'm cutting this one down to the last moment arn't i? oh well that's just me...and the fact that i'm on the family computer and not my baby (my mac is soooo pretty lol) to upload these pics is just taking longer.

ANYWHO when i read what this challange was going to be i just HAD to enter. why may your ask?

well i work at a grocery store. and while i was thinking of what to do while at work i kept noticing one thing...my eye was twitching.

no offence to any one here as i am SURE that you were all wonderfull customers to your cash people but i had some horrid customers. for instance i found out about this swap the day my puppy passed away two weeks ago. i some times won't come on for about a week to two weeks at one time due to work hours, crafting and a social life.

but onto the story of this bad customer. i was ringing him threw as i was telling a co worker about kirby (my puppy) he told me "it was just your dog, it wasn't like it was your father" my replay to him was no my father died 8 years ago and i proceeded to cry. it was at this stressful point that my co worker asked if i had a zen garden or somthing to help with my stress.

on that note it got me thing and thus i came up with my idea

my supplies.

Pie tins $2.98
Bitter sweet Cocolate $.99
Scewers $2.99
Bread crumbs $.99
Sprikle viles $2.50 ish

total after tax around $10 (i bough whip cream and a carry out bag which pushed my bill to 14.45 but they were not for this)

the shabang

the bill

the garuden

after raking

your friendly narbourhood No frills Casher. please be kind to your cashers. we are people to

ok the first up is probably to second or thrid of the books i made in college. as a graphic design student in my college we are tought how to bind our own books. do most of us remember? errrrk....sortta. but yah anyways. this book is a saddle stich book. produced with the fallowing items: Milboard for the cover, japanese paper for the cover, senew to sew up the bindings, fabirc tape, glue and cartrage paper. big list but worth it. plus i got an "a" on my book ^_^

The second book from school, again milboard, japanese papper fabric tape but this time we used black cardstock for the inside and bound it with screws. it was really fun. again this project got me an "A"
