You're not stupid!

It's kinda like ebay.  You create an account, post an item for 10 cents, and then sellers buy your wares.  Upside is that your listing stays active for 6 months and there's no bidding, so you get the amt of money you want for your item.  THey only take out about 3% commission, not ebay's 5%.  It is also simple to use their shopping cart and connects so many crafty sellers together.  Hope that helps!

Hey guys.  I just kinda revamped my etsy shop, and made a storefront that links to it.  Another crafter gave me the idea, since she said a site would make me look professional, but since etsy does all the work for a minimal price, it would save me the headache of setting up a cart.  Oh, so, anyway, ...

Does anyone else think this is a good idea?  Links in sig...

I love love love the items you guys have in your shops, esp the springy stuff from cherry blossom boutique.  Not much to say, really, just wanted to put in my 2 cents about my etsy... lol

Hey!  I'm an extreme procrastinator, which sucks, since I'm right in the middle of fixing my online site, cleaning up my Etsy, and finishing up some projects.  I was looking at everybody's stuff and you'll be proud to know that it actually motivated me to get some projects done.  I hope it's not too late to join the craftalong...is it?  Huh 

Here's my list:
  • Make mod belt out of ribbon and plastic bangles
  • Stencil white skirt to post
  • Handpaint  Strapless top
  • finish 'accessories' page on website
Let's go see about that belt...

Honestly, I thought this season was a big letdown.  I'm glad Chloe won, so she can represent for all of us Houston girls, but her stuff wasn't all that.  None of the collections were.  I haven't even watched the last two episodes because I was so underwhelmed. This season was just not good to me.  I miss Jay and Kara Saun.  Those two have TALENT!!! 

And wasn't it cute how they both worked together on Project Jay?  They'd be the perfect business partners...

does anyone have an idea of how to make a ruffle???
i would really like some help

stargirl the skagirl

Cut a length of fabric that is about 2 or 3 times the length of what you are putting the ruffle on (like the bottom of a skirt or a sleeve). 

There are two ways to make the actual ruffle:

* Using the largest stitch length and width on your machine, make a straight stitch all the way down the long piece of fabric, leaving thread tails at the ends (don't reverse stitch at the end).  Pull the thread ends until the fabric scrunches up and makes a ruffle, then sew it on your project.

*That first method never works for me, so I usually take lots of pins, gather the fabric along the edge of my project, and pin in place, then sew the ruffle on. 

If you need pics, just tell me.  Hope that wasn't confusing. Smiley

I'm 5 feet 3 inches, a size 8 on the bottom (but have hips and large thighs and calves) and can be varying sizes on the top because I'm a 38 D.  I'm 19, and tend to gravitate to juniors fashions, but until manufacturers can conceive of a short, curvy, big-busted teen, I'm outta hope.  I'm just not your average emaciated, flat-chested, chicken-leg junior...Tongue (no offense to my thin craftinistas out there)

We should start a petition and stop this madness called button down shirts.  I don't want my boobs to cause a button to pop and bust somebody upside the head...

And low-rise jeans that show my rolls...

And pants that cut off the circulation in my thighs...

[and I could go on and on...  Wink]

From y'all's experience ('scuse the Texan slang  Wink), what sells better on Etsy?  Are people more likely to buy things like jewelry rather than clothing or yarn art or what?  I post all kinds of stuff out of my love of craft, but I'm trying to raise money for a gift for a friend and I need something that will sell fairly quickly.

Oh great, I'm selling out... Tongue
