11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Pricing questions... on: October 15, 2005 01:47:21 PM
just wanted to jump in here and say I think your bags are priced well on your etsy site, andreamarie... the $20 to $30 range seems appropriate, $10 seems like selling yourself a bit short.  You don't have a factory full of people making these... so you shouldn't be expected to match Walmart prices.  These are handmade and one-of-a-kind.  Emphasize their uniqueness if people aren't used to paying for handmade goods.  I'm sure they'll be snatched right up -- they look very well sewn.

Pictures!!  Ok... first the beautiful scarf.  The pictures don't show it off well enough... the yarn is this great brown-based variagated coloration with burgundy, navy, moss, and teal running through it.. it will match everything I wear!  It's a perfect color scheme for me, I know I won't ever take it off!   Cheesy


(just noticed how badly my mirror needs a dousing in windex... sorry kids)

Next up, the neckwarmer!  I have never owned one of these, but when I put it on, I knew right away that it will be one of my favorite winter items.  Check out the rich blue colors, and notice how they match what I'm wearing today... I love it!


(semi goofy pose to keep you guys entertained, since I know you're all jealous of my knitted treasures.)

And one more shot to show off the colors, textures, and detailing... check out the cable, ribbing, and chunky buttons on the neckwarmer... and the shaping on the bottom ends of the scarf.  I know you can't see it very well, but the ends expand into kind of a square shape... and if I'm not mistaken (correct me if I am though!  lol), this is a clever, clever way to solve that issue of wind sneaking through the ever-present scarf gap and attacking your neck -- the extra wide ends give more chest/throat coverage, and the corner tucks into the scarf layers... it's brilliant!  



Thanks so much Sandra!!!  You are the best, and I am now the warmest.  Smiley  Someone teach me how to knit.  (But not until after I graduate.)

16  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: Transfer Using Goo Gone and Photocopies??? on: October 13, 2005 06:25:14 PM
I love that bag, regardless of what happened with the transfer... speaking of... what happened??  I am not familiar with this product... what kind of process did you have to go through to get it to work?

In my experience, transferring has just involved a black and white laser/copier image (haven't tried color yet, heard it doesn't work as well), printed in reverse, so when you put it face down on the item you're transferring it to, it's oriented correctly... then add some kind of solvent in small amounts to the back of the print, rub the print onto the item, and you're done.

Sure it's a touchy kind of process, depending on the age of your print, the solvents you used, the item you're transferring onto and its texture, and your speed at rubbing before the solvent dries... not to mention your tolerance for toxic fumes...  Roll Eyes ... but never experienced clear sheets of plastic before..Huh  give us more info, laura!

In the garage with the cars and lawn mowers?  Not my idea of heaven.

She said he is going to finish it.... doesn't that mean it probably won't still have typical garage stuff in it anymore?  Even if it does, having a place to work is better than having no place to work.  I don't know why you had to make a snide comment when she is clearly so excited. 

congrats, NJcrafter.. you will really enjoy having a space of your own.  I hope your husband is a quick worker. Smiley

LOL... wow.  Ok, I guess my time spent as a copy girl was time well spent.   Wink 
glad that was helpful, really.  (laura, I definitely am picturing you dancing, hehe!)  any more questions, or successes!!, let me know. 
I really will post something transferred here someday.  Something good.  Actually I already know what, but I don't have time/digital pictures right now.

um.. I don't know!  Hehe.  I was referring specifically to Strathmore Pastel (assorted colors)... here's a link: http://www.misterart.com/store/view/001/group_id/338/Strathmore-400-Series-Pastel-Pads.htm

it's 80lb paper, with a nice texture, the colors are muted but interesting, it's acid-free, it's tape-bound so you don't have to trim off the leftovers of spiral binding, and best of all, it's short-grained, so you can make decent sized books with the smaller sheets.  Got a 9 x 12 pad at Hobby Lobby for $3.59.
