Oh.. if ya decide to... definitely post something on that thread about it Smiley  If you don't - I will!!  You can't stop me Tongue

Am I smoking crack?

I think that's a little besides the point.  Cheesy

Nah, I think it's a neat idea!

Everyone swooned over that thread.  I think people could by bits & pieces and create their own really awesome installation...the possibilities are pretty much endless as to what colors and arrangements they could create on their own.

sunnii - I just listed a bracelet to match one of my necklaces

I'm having some trouble with my pictures, I have a really nice digital camera and usually can manage really good pictures, but I've been having to take a million pictures to get one good one of an item. How do you set up the ligting etc. for your pics?

Well.. if you take pix outside, on a sunny day.. you don't need any set up at all Smiley  If your camera has a macro setting (the little flower usually), then set it to that, because it looks like your pieces are small & detailed Smiley  I absolutely love these pictures I ran across in Trinkets & Jewelry!  She doesn't have a fancy shmancy camera & just takes them outside with a white paper bag as a backdrop.  Look at that sparkle!  Shocked  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=94224.0

If you are indoors (sorry for being redundant for those "regulars" here), I have made & always recommend this little homemade lightbox that a member here posted.  I made it from stuff around the house, so it didn't cost me anything.  The direct link is (please ignore the credit card stuff at the top, it's a free tutorial) http://createapendant.com/photobox.htm The Craftster thread about it is http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75541.0

i found photoshop 7 for pretty cheap and downloaded it - it seems like a great program, but i have no clue what i'm doing on it!   Huh

I'm just planning on making stencils for things and maybe enhancing images...  nothing too in-depth. 

Thanks for the help, everyone!

Ahh...great!  They have some tutorials listed on here, maybe they will help Wink

Strawberry... your shop itself has lotsa stuff!  Wow!  Super cute.. looks like my closet Smiley

Would it be possible for you to post larger pictures of your items?  Your pictures are actually smaller than the size Etsy makes them on each item's individual page, so they are distorted/blurry.  If I click on them & go to the actual size of each image, they are okay though.  Smiley

What program do you use to remove the backgrounds to the images?  Some of them clip into the actual piece itself, so the edges get a bit jaggy or white dragged into them.  It's not really a big deal...but with a store front as lovely as yours, it's something to work on in the shop portion.  Smiley

Thanks again for posting.. it's always fun to poke around a shop of a Craftster  Grin

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

I like your store front idea... and the design is lovely Smiley  I think your links section is broken though, 'cause the Craftster link doesn't show up for some reason.  Huh  Other than that, the colors & overall navigation of the site are great!

Off to walk around your shop some more... Smiley  Thanks for posting!

I have been advertising like crazy and made a random sale last week, which was nice, but I just can't get over how out of place my books feel in their sad little category. :/

I love the elephant Smiley  I hearted it, but if it ever goes on sale, be sure to let me know Cheesy  I don't think it will be on there long enough to go on sale though.  It's cute & elephants have a personal meaning for me...so I luvs it.

I plan on buying CS2 later this year because they have a few cool features such as wrapping an image around something, say a mug or can for instance whuch could come in handy if you design labels or something..

And another is a little more advanced and pricey, but it allows you to crop or mask certain things in an image and take it from ita background.. Like say you had a green frog sitting on a green leaf.. This would be a very long and daunting process if you were to try and remove the frog from the leaf, but with this plug-in its alot easier and only takes a few minutes...

Wrapping is so wonderfully awesome.  I'm a little crazy with it though...when I first got it, I was wrapping & warpping like a mad woman.  I added tattoos to peoples' arms & legs from family photos  Wink

What's the name of the plugin ya have?  I've seen a few, but can't find the one for me Tongue  I think I'm too finicky about some things.  *shrug*

I'm just so sad because I can't get a copy of that pattern  Cry

Sorry about the misinfo. I had no idea she stopped her site. My apologies.

She's a fairly longtime member of Craftster! Grin  She hasn't posted since sometime in January, but ya could PM her & see if she would respond either here, or via email. Smiley  Her posts are all still up, but the pix have been removed because they all linked to that site... she has posted lots of modifications & links to other sites though.

Hope it helps a little bit! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=18887
15610  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: Suggestion for rules regarding 1st time swappers on: May 11, 2006 02:53:54 PM
Dont' you think that if someone hasn't reached their month mark but they were an angel and successfully completed their angel responsibilities they should be allowed to sign up for a normal swap?  Just one of course, as their first probationary one since being an angel isn't exactly like a swap but I feel that the one month rule should be waived if this is the case.

No, I don't agree.  Smiley

Reaching the one month mark, along with at least 15 posts demonstrates a contribution, as well as some form of commitment to Craftster.  It also makes it easier for a partner to craft for you, as you have probably left some lovely, juicy, crafty details about yourself within some of the threads scattered about the boards, by the end of that time.

And like Pinkmafia said, there are benefits  Grin
