1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Father's Day / Father's Day E-Reader Covers on: June 06, 2011 07:57:46 PM
I made these really cute E-Reader covers for Father's Day, and am planning on selling them at a local market days this weekend.  I made one for my dad that is personalized with his name on the inside cover. 




2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Copyright Patten Question on: April 16, 2011 06:20:49 PM
On the topic of copyrights, I have a question...  Do the people on etsy (and other sites, I'm sure) realize the copyright infringement of buying fabric with a copyrighted logo/image and reselling it (ex- Tinkerbell, Mickey Mouse, Cat in the Hat, etc)?  Or the people who post a picture of a McCalls/Butterick/Simplicity pattern envelope and sell the item on the pattern as a custom order?  The pattern envelope states on the front that it is for "individual home use only and not for commercial or manufacturing purposes."  Wouldn't that also be a copyright infringement and could be sued by the company selling the pattern?  I know a lot of people use these patterns for resale, but to be so blatant about it seems to be asking for trouble.  
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / ArtFire? Worth the time? on: April 12, 2011 01:45:36 PM
I recently stumbled across artfire.com while looking for an out of print pattern, and got to poking around a bit and it seems like a good place to expand my business.  I was just wondering if anyone else has sold there and what are the pros/cons over just staying with etsy only. 
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Fairy Costumes: Need Feedback on: March 28, 2011 06:43:26 PM
I recently designed a line of fairy costumes and listed them in my etsy store, but they aren't moving at all!  I've received a ton of compliments, but only one sale.  I'm asking $68 for them, and that includes a full tutu, long-sleeved crop-top, lace-up bodice and wings that velco to the bodice and are embroidered.  Here are some pics of the Autumn Fire Fairy I have.  I also have the same fairy in Blue and in Green, and am offering custom colors/sizes.  What does everyone think of these, am I charging too much?  Thanks!








5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Lilac Fairy Costume on: March 22, 2011 10:09:07 AM
My daughter wanted to be a fairy this past year when we went to faire, and with a little help from an embroidery design on Urban Threads, I made it happen.  I will also never again make a tutu that has an actual waistband and hook and eye....  Too much hassle, but she loved it!





6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Party invitations on: March 22, 2011 09:21:44 AM
I'm pretty new to paper crafts, I started scrapbooks for both of my kids, and according to the scrapbooks, neither of my children is over a few months old...  But I started planning my son's 6th birthday party, a luau, and discovered that I didn't want plain-jane store-bought invitations.  I didn't like them.  While looking around the mighty web for crafts to do with my kids, I came across a tutorial on here for marbled cards made with shaving cream and food coloring.  I put this to the test and had fun with the kids as we marbled our paper.  I then ran the paper through the printer and they are now ready to hand out!  I also looked up each child's name in Hawaiian to put on the invitation, a neat little touch.
