I'm interested in selling glass products. Mainly etched glasses and similar things.
However, it seems so expensive!
The best solution I can come up with is to not ship singular items (just one cup) but instead to sell sets. Maybe that could keep the cost of shipping somewhat reasonable, but I don't know... I'd be shipping from the US if that helps any.
Does anyone know of ways or tips to ship such things for a cheaper cost? I don't want potential customers to be scared off by the price of shipping. ):
I tried this out and it was really neat! Although I don't think we used enough skittles when we did ours.
Straining was a big pain! Later on we found out that you can just pour in soda and all the gunk floats to the top and clings together. Much much much MUCH easier for straining then. We just used a spoon, although using a little mesh strainer would work fantastic.
I want to make a little amigurumi based on a GaiaOnline item, the Star Kitten.
My plan is to make two circles and attach cones for the points. I don't feel confident enough to try and make it all in one piece, if that's possible. With the ears, I'm also not sure how to make a plain ol' triangle, so I think I'll still make a cone and either switch to pink or sew on pink fabric.
However, I would like to make the little star points tilted, as I very badly doodled. It looks too silly and rigid if the points aren't skewed a little bit.
So any suggestions on how to do this? I think it's a matter of inc and dec, but any suggestions of how I should go about doing it? I'm worried that perhaps I'll inc too much on one side that the whole thing will be some super curved cornucopia. ): I know that I'll have to keep adjusting and changing, but I'd like to have a base to jump off of, if possible.
Oh man, these turned out so fantaaaastic. I did make one batch with all cheddar and no parmesean and that came out really well, but when I made a second batch, it was more doughy and a bit easier to work with.
My dogs adoooored these. My min pin hasn't had anything this good and she would go frantic if I gave her a bit. I ended up making a whole lot as x-mas gifts to my bf's family and family friend. They all loved the biscuits.
I went out at one point, leaving these and some rice krispies on the counter. I did leave a note not to touch anything but, of course, it went ignored and my dad ended up tasting the biscuits. He said thought I had messed up and had to run out for sugar or something. Hahaha. The bone shape didn't tip him off. Silly dad.
I tried making these today and I messed up. D; The first time I used the wrong size pan. I picked something that was waaaay too big so the mixture didn't spread out as well. It is good, but very ugly. I also used dark brown sugar which I had let sit and simmer for while.
The second time I used the right size pan. I had light brown sugar and tried to stick closer to the recipe, so I boiled it for what I thought was 3 minutes, poured it, and baked it. It looked fantaaaastic, especially after I did the chocolate and put some crushed candy canes on top. Unfortunately, the sugar mixture didn't set. It was a gooey buttery mess. Very ickky. I'm assuming that I didn't let it heat up enough, but I'm not sure.
I'm going to try one last time tomorrow with dark brown sugar, the right pan, and lots of heating. Hopefully it'll work this time. D;
If anyone has any idea about what I did wrong, I'd really really appreciate it!!
Applesin - And god, Pokemon is such an awesome obsession. Although I've only ever beat Crystal. I tried recently playing Gold but I couldn't get past the Elite Four. Boo~
carXunderwater - I am thinking about it, to be honest. I'm just a little iffy about it, what with copyrights and all. But I see other pokehats on etsy and ebay so I'm figuring that since it can fall under a cosplay category and it'd be alright then. I did make Houndour as for someone who did pay me back for it. You can try looking on etsy for snorlax, and if I do end up deciding to sell them, I'll let you know. ;P
