651  Re: How's Your etsy Shop Doing? in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by sweets4ever on: June 24, 2006 06:53:27 PM
I was going to setup paypal but then decided not to because You have to pay for that and I wasn't selling anything. But I think I might because it seems some people prefer to use that over checks and money orders.

Ahhh... okay!  Smiley  I think it might increase your sales if you offered PayPal, but that's just my .  I think ya said ya were bummed about your sales.  I can't really see any other reason for them not to be hoppin', so it might be something ya could consider Smiley

I'm too anxious of a shopper to wait for checks to mail, then process...so I *love* paying with PayPal, Visa, etc.  I want a cellphone cozy though, so holler at me if/when you create a PayPal account... 'cause I'll be all over it.  Smiley

It isn't a burden at all!  I have some other custom orders to get to this weekend, but I could start next week.  I will list him in my shop when he is done.  Did you have a special color and size?  The turtles are about 3".  Did you want him in a costume or Naked?

LOL, you can say that because you've never had to deal with me...hehehe!

Not many colors, but I used your current stuff for color samples... Smiley  I just want him to sit on his rump (not on all fours) and holding a lil' heart in his hand.  Here's my ghetto fabulous drawing, I used your grey alien as a texture pattern, lol.

Thanks Sweets4ever, Synne, Carriem23, and Tygra for your comments Smiley
I like how the wood looks but quite a few people have said it's distracting so I'll try a plain background also I guess.
Thanks again

I played around with one of your bags... Smiley  The overall background image quality is lowered (for Craftster posting purposes), but the difference on this one is so dramatic.  I really like the white background on a piece like this.  I makes the fabric POP!  Shocked

657  Melted Bead...Coasters!! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sweets4ever on: June 17, 2006 03:10:19 AM
Woohoo, finally something constructive from all those fumes...summer confetti coasters!  Smiley




Hi all!  Smiley  I just thwapped the cups flat on the counter & they popped out.  Wink  hehehe!

They have a lip... it's a very shallow one, but it's there... Smiley  The center is completely flat, then the outer edge angles up slightly & there's an itty bitty lip.  I stacked the beads 2 or 3 high in the cups and they oozed down in to make the lip.  It's just enough to keep condensation from sneaking out onto the table.  I have some flat coasters I bought a few years ago, but never saw the point in them (other than decoration) because the water escapes right on to the coffee table...they make me mad! lol.

I started out by baking them at 375 for about half an hour, then get anxious & kicked it up to 425 for about 20 more.  They had to cool quite a bit longer than my other pieces, because the crocks retain their heat for a longer time.

They are fairly thick... thicker than I thought they would be.  Hmm.. it's hard to measure or take a picture of.  I guess in the center they are approximately as thick as 2 - 3 quarters stacked, probably just under 3.

659  More melted bead goodness! Starry Night ;) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: June 16, 2006 10:23:11 AM
Just when you thought you couldn't possible see another post about melted beads, bowls, lampshades, etc. - I did another one!  Smiley

I did this yesterday morning as a gift for my boy... Smiley  I still have to drill out holes in the upper corners, so it can hang from a window, on a wall, etc., but it's basically done.  Smiley
OH!  And the stars glow in the dark, but I forgot to take it to a dark room to check it out just yet...so not sure how that looks.  Sounds neat though... Smiley

Thanks for lookin'!  Grin



Some misc. pictures...

All beaded & good to go.  Smiley


Good bye sweet beads...


With a wall as a backdrop... Smiley  Flash on!


Flash off!

So......I have been lurking this thread because I think it is way cool but since my mom is a stained glass artist I figured if I made a faux stained glass lampshade upon sight of it, she would freeze dead in her tracks and accuse me of heresay!   Wink

Sooooooooooo today I ran into Joann's at lunch to get googly eyes and froze dead in my tracks in front of the pony beads! There they were soooo many of them in so many colors and I have an unused 40% off coupon about to expire!!

So now I'm thinking this would be a good project for my office lamps or maybe for the guest room. But basically......I'm sucked in.....sucked into another crafting project! But not until I finish a bunch of stuff that I HAVE to get done this weekend!

One question though......does light shine through the opaque aka the less sparkly beads?

Your family is so artistic and crafty... will your mom adopt me?  Maybe some of it will rub off on me & I'll be in crafty heaven!

Considering that your my swap partner right now, it's okay to be sucked in... hehe!  Smiley

The light does shine through, but not nearly as much.  It's also dependant upon how long you let the beads melt.  If you don't let them melt as long as I did, you can actually leave gaps where no beads are at all, thus more light.  Smiley  I liked them super melted though, because I thought it gave the illusion of stained glass more so than if it was lattice-y.  Here's probably the best shot where you can see the comparison of light vs. less light/opaque vs. solid beads.


Also, if you use the smaller pony beads & the piece was thinner, I'm sure it would shine more.  Personally.. I love, love, love the transparent red beads.  I'll definitely being buying more of those for the next projects (which have compiled a freaking LIST now, eek!).  Smiley
