1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / user name craft swap? on: June 14, 2013 06:07:53 PM
ive been throwing this idea around in my head for a little while now ...

what about a swap where there are no rules about what type of craft made or what materials must be used ... the only theme is that you have to craft a representation of your partners user name?

i feel like this could be really challenging and spark some imagination ... would any body be interested in something like this ... or is it only a cool concept in my own warped brain?? Tongue

4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / craft show "goodies" on: April 12, 2013 02:39:34 PM
Just applied for another craft show; this will be the first one ive done under my new shop that is all upcycled materials alongside vintage items ... i always like to give my business card along with a small freebie for the goodie bags they give the first shoppers to arrive at the show. However because of the nature of what Im selling ... Im having a difficult time coming up with ideas for what to include that would still represent the shop.
im selling mostly home decor, with some sewn items from reclaimed materials.
would including a vintage button on each of the goodie bag business cards be lame ... or cute? only appreciated by other crafters im sure ...
then i thought about doing a bobby pin with a little bow or rosette from my vintage fabrics ... but that almost seems played out. i feel like i get ten little bobby pins like that in every goodie bag.
i dont know.
any ideas or suggestions?Huh?
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Altered Paintbrush Swap on: March 25, 2013 07:30:51 PM
a while back i came across a blog that discussed having your friends make altered paintbrushes to decorate a room ... i fell in love with this idea and asked my friends to do this for me ... i got a good response and some awesome brushes ... but now im thinking ... this would make a cool swap.
Everyone gets say a 1" wooden paintbrush and decorates it in any fashion theyd like then sends it off to their partner.
Any interest in a swap like this?
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My first attempt at shrink plastic ... on: May 25, 2010 05:50:19 PM


i drew this little guy in a half asleep state ... but, then again, going to work at 330 am kind of has me in a perpetually half asleep state ...

... i researched a lot on different methods of coloring shrink plastic ... i did this guy with acrylic paint though ...

and i dont think im happy with him on a chain ... i might look into putting him on a ribbon instead ... i don't know.

this whole shrink plastic thing intrigues me though ...
7  UNITED STATES / Florida / SUMMER CRAFT SHOWS! on: January 26, 2010 05:27:39 AM
I know it's getting a little late in the game ... but does anyone know of any good craft shows coming up for this spring/summer that are still accepting vendors? We live in Orlando and can't seem to come across any for ourselves ... we're even looking into tampa bay area and all the way down to miami ... so we're willing to travel .. we just want to find a good one.
as always were keeping our fingers crossed for a good indie/alternative craft show but those seem to be far and few between in this state. please let us know of any ... anyplace in florida that you know of coming up Smiley
8  Florida / Florida: Central / How do I find out about any indie/urban craft fairs in the area????? on: December 31, 2008 08:54:47 AM
My friend and I are both originally from Detroit, and just recently started selling our projects on etsy (downtownmonsters.etsy.com) ... we've been having a difficult time finding craft fairs in the central florida area ... and even more specifically weve been trying to find an indie craft fair .. but were having a real tough time .. does anyone have any information they can share with us?HuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuhHuh? Huh
