361  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Frames & photo scrapbook on: December 22, 2006 05:31:15 AM
I made these for a swap. Smiley

Her favorite color is green, so I took a plain black frame & color washed it with metallic green and topaz.
Then I decorated it with tumbled carnelians, rhinestones and a colorful glass piece.

I took a funky white frame and covered/sealed it with tons and tons of seed beads (so many layers!).

This is little photo scrapbook.
I used it as part of the swap, but I figured she could remove the photos I have in it and use it again after the swap. Smiley

362  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bowl made from raffle tickets on: December 22, 2006 05:24:59 AM
I made this for a swap & got the idea from my partner's Wists. Smiley

She Wisted this link http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=98531.0 and that link provides this link http://www.elsewares.com/commerce/Ticket-Bowls_MPD325.html. Smiley

It's made from a roll of raffle tickets, decoupaged and acrylic sealed in many layers.  I wish I had a more colorful roll of tickets lying around, but at least the concept is there.

363  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Mugs of treats (complete w/ photos) on: December 21, 2006 06:44:48 PM
I made 24 mugs of goodies for my fiance's employees for the holiday.  He wanted to get everyone something, but couldn't think of anything to purchase that everyone would enjoy and wouldn't break the bank.

Last year I made his department gel candles: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69356.0

Chocolate covered pretzels, 3 kinds - red sugar, sprinkles & peanut butter drizzles.

Stir spoons - chocolate-dipped with crushed peppermint candies.

Suckers - chocolate reindeer, santa & candy canes.

Hot cocoa "cones"

The mugs all packed with treats & ready to go - woot!

Another member, minibooger, made an AWESOME version of these and posted them later in the thread.  Check 'em out!

365  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Personal/Private Swap Gallery - December 2006 on: December 01, 2006 05:26:32 AM
Happy Holidays, everyone!
This is our LAST gallery of 2006 - make it a great one!!

Smiley  Cheesy  Grin This swap gallery is intended as a way to recognize all the wonderful personal swaps that are done in this community!   Grin  Cheesy  Smiley

Personal swaps are not encouraged or supported by Craftster.  This is only a thread to post pictures from your personal experiences.  Personal swaps are not and cannot be tracked in Swap Feedback on profiles and should not be linked to Craftster's Organized Swaps in any way.

Folks who have participated in a personal swap and wish to share pictures of the items they have sent and received may do so by posting in this gallery.

Please note that this gallery is meant for those who have had a good experience with their personal swaps!  This is not the place to air your grievances about being "flaked" on...please keep it positive and give love to those awesome personal swappers! Wink

Each month a new gallery will be started.  If you have received from a personal/private swap, within the month, feel free to post pictures here!   Grin

366  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / NEWS: Using Etsy for Picture Hosting on: December 01, 2006 05:20:27 AM
Hi guys!

If you have used Etsy as your picture hosting source for any images on Craftster prior to Etsy V2, could you please revisit your posts and update your image URLs?  All image URLs have changed drastically and if you had inserted an image anywhere on Craftster, it is now coming up as the dreaded "Red X"  Sad

If you could all pitch in & help, we would really appreciate it!  Smiley

Thanks much!
367  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Pilafi! (Greek-style rice - super easy) on: November 29, 2006 05:18:16 PM
The goods...
2  cups long grain rice 
3 1/2 cups veggie broth (substitutes could be wonton broth, mushroom broth, etc.)
1  chopped carrot 
1  chopped onion 
1  stalk chopped celery 
salt & paprika to taste

Boil the rice following the package directions, but use the broth instead of water (very important...this is what makes it nummy!).  Add your veggies and seasonings and eat eat eat.

Mushrooms and other goodies can be added as well.  Mix it up... Smiley
368  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / How's your Etsy shop doing now? on: November 18, 2006 10:16:35 AM
The old Etsy thread (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=43650.0) has been locked & retired and we've started fresh with this one!

This new thread will free those people who no longer want to receive notifications of replies, but had posted somewhere within the 1239 pages of that thread.  Smiley  This also gives us a chance to start new with working links and pictures!  Jungrrl & I will be going through the old thread and deleting/editing links that no longer work as time allows.

Here are a few guidelines for this thread to (hopefully) keep it a bit more manageable than the previous one.  Please take a moment to read them as your posts may be edited/deleted/moved if they don't follow along with these...

...post in regard to how your Etsy shop is doing.  Discuss your milestones (hearts, sales, etc.), thoughts, ideas and questions for other members regarding your shop or theirs.

...stop by the thread once or twice a week to post a list of your most recent item listings.  This thread is not for advertisement purposes.  If you would like comments and suggestions, please feel free to ask for them, but do not just post a list of links to your listings.  These posts will be deleted without notice.  Smiley

...post treasuries here.  Smiley  I've noticed that the last month of the old thread has become abundant with posts of "I made a new treasury!!  Look!! (insert link here)."  This clutters up the thread and makes it difficult to follow.  I've made a special sticky thread just for you folks!  Here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=133952  We will be deleting the old, broken treasury links from the old post over time.  If your treasury expires, please remember that you have the ability to edit/delete your thread - to help keep our threads tidy!  You can read about this here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73260.0  Smiley

Please remember to use the search function to see if questions have been answered here or on the Etsy forums.  Many questions regarding international shipping, what to do when a buyer doesn't pay, advertising, how to make photos look better, etc., have already been answered many, many times.  You can find threads about these on this board as well as on Etsy.

Thanks for all of your help & understanding in making this thread as useful to others as possible!

369  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Made a treasury? List it here! on: November 18, 2006 10:12:37 AM
List all those wonderful treasuries you're creating right here!  Smiley

Please remember that if your treasury link expires, you can come back to your post and update (modify) it or delete it!  Help keep our threads tidy! Smiley
You can read more about modifying here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73260.0

Have fun!

(If you have any questions about the Treasury or how it works feel free to post them in this topic: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=146393.0  - jungrrl)
370  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another of my melted bead lampshades :) on: November 13, 2006 04:54:37 AM
Here's my first one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100703.0

And here's my second!  Smiley  I used a few strands of valentine heart beads and then a mix of multi facet beads to fill the gaps.  It's taller than the first one, so you can't see the bulb from any angle this time - yay!

I LOVE the hue it casts on the wall.
