1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: website networking/promoting help on: July 07, 2012 01:34:47 PM
Join in some link parties. Be a guest blogger on another blog. Write crafty articles for various craft-related websites. Leave comments on blogs, as many bloggers will visit your site in return. Try buying some FB ads--I have plenty of crafty friends/biz owners who have gotten great traffic via that route.

I recently saw a great blog post on creating some simple studio lighting that imitates natural light:

You can do lots of neat artistic effects with Photoscape. I use it for lots of things. It's a free program. Smiley
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Etsy shop is stealing from me & maybe you too!!! on: April 06, 2011 04:52:29 PM
There are things you can do to stop her B.S. thievery.

1) You can file a claim against her with Google for violating the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
And it would seem to me that Etsy would suffer a lot if more people did this, since they seem to not really care about copyright infringement at all. But they DMCA says they HAVE to care!

2) You can report her to RipOffReport.com.

3) If you can determine her ISP, you can report her to them. Use a DMCA Take Down Notice to do so and the ISP will have to pay attention to that, and it can result in her losing her Internet provider.

You should definitely be watermarking every photo you use in your site. There are websites that do this for free, and programs you can download for free to do it also. It only took a couple of my own photos being stolen (though not on Etsy) for me to learn my lesson. And just be sure that when you watermark you don't put the watermark in a place that it's easily removed/cropped out. It's sad that we have to do this, but unfortunately, we do.

Formally registering your photos with the US Copyright Office is the only way to have a leg to stand on in a court of law, if it were to come to that. "Poor Man's Copyright" (sending yourself things through the mail w/copyright notice on them) does NOT stand up in court, just so you know.

Most people who sell online don't legally register all their photos, but it is an option. That being said, all of your photos are legally protected by copyright law the minute they are fixed in a tangible form. But the registration is necessary if you were to go to court over something like this.

Wanted something that could be decor for both Easter and Spring, so came up with this...

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Grungy Bunny Bag on: April 06, 2011 04:11:23 PM
Made this out of a plain muslin bag...it's meant to be a gift bag. I've just stuffed it to get a better picture of it.

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Felt Chocolate Easter Bunny on: April 06, 2011 04:09:06 PM
Just made this out of felt. I made a pattern (which you can download below) and cut it out of cardstock. Pinned that to 2 pieces of felt and cut them out. Then topstitched the pieces together most of the way, stuffed with fiberfill, and then stitched closed. I added the ribbon to finish it off. I'm not one to make a lot of Easter crafts, but this year I got motivated for some reason.

Thanks everyone. And, alteredmommy, the hearts are 3" high.

Thanks. One is 2" square and the other I think is about 1-1/2 x 2-1/2"...or something close to that.
