Hi there! I'm 26 and a mom too who has 3 tone hair (brunette-natural, blone & red streaks) and a nose peircing, ears peirced all the way around & tattoos also. I wear alot of funky clothes too, I'm not into brand name, I'm starting to do DIY & get alot of my stuff at HotTopic & consignment. I feel that when people judge others from an outside appearance, they must have insecurities about themselves. I know who I am inside and that's all that matters. You have but one life & it's only to make yourself happy, cuz we can not control another person's emotions. This site rocks! I love how everyone from different backgrounds and ages can get together and be so supportive each other-it's GREAT!!!
Hello. By all means, I'm no business person, but I would probably go by an hourly rate maybe. Like lets say it takes you 2 hours to make a purse & you would like $10 an hour, you could charge $20. In a way that seems kinda high for me. I've read statistics where women age 35 & older are willing to pay more for a surperior product (like 100% silk over cotton) and younger generations will go more by price since they are just getting out of school & working to make ends meet & save for college or a house. But for a purse that you described, I think $10 is a fair amount. Now for a duck tape dress or outfit like I've seen on here, I'd pay $500 or more since it took so much time & calculating & product. Hope this helps.
How 'bout one of those "fund" jars. You could decorate a glass jar with wire & sports themed (baseball) charms & paint or stencil/etch "Yankee's Fund" or something like that & maybe add some money to the jar to get it started. Just an idea. I did this for my dad & he loved it.
Hi there again! My brother in law had a baby boy, this is his first child. Since he served in the army, I thought it would be cool to do an army theme baby gift. I made a time capsule from a tin that I paiinted gold, copper and black. I then used some modpodge to help protect the paint. The bottom gold part is the tin, the copper & black part is an empty margarine tin turned upside down & glued on. I bought alphabet letters to make "Baby bullet time capsule" on the tin. I also sewed the baby booties on my sewing machine made from leather. I used a hole punch to make the eyes to lace up with leather strips. It was a free hand pattern that took me awhile to figure out since I'm new at sewing.
I don't know how big the bubbles are, but by looking, they seem pretty small, but if you could find mini fairies or something or make some from clay, then glue to the top, string fishing line (clear) from them, they would look great hanging in a tree or from a ceiling.
