1  Re: How's your Etsy shop doing? 2011-2012 in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by madhatterdesign on: August 08, 2012 10:39:20 AM
You've got a good point there Bea, it wasn't a fail, and actually would probably be perfect if I took the time to block it, because the only thing I'm not thrilled with about it, is the edges are a little woobely.
I guess I was looking at it from the point of view that my time/experience wasn't of much value on that piece because it was my first attempt, instead of looking at it from a quality point of view.  Maybe it is worth more : )

& Le-Chat, I never noticed until you said something, maybe it's this new computer, but that w.i.p photo look way too bright, and almost washed right out  Embarrassed    I know the ones of me with it on are kind of crappy because I had my boyfriend take them with my moms camera.  I'm not really, quite sure what you mean about a 'drape' photo though.  I get the basic like 'oh a photo of it draped on something' but do you mean holding it or just having it laid over something?

This isn't that great a picture of the 'scarf' because it was something I made/kept for myself and I was really just taking pictures of myself w/ it on, but unfortunately I don't have better pics right now, and it's too hot to take new ones lol.  I finished this one a couple years ago when I decided I really missed the little red hooded scarf I had when I was a little girl. The hood and scarf ends are all one piece with one seam down the back of the hood.  It's really warm, and I love it. 

I'd really like to get more knitted and crocheted items up in my shop, but the only problem is that stuff takes so long for me to finish things. It seems like it takes so long to get one thing done, that I get bored with it, and end up setting it aside to work on something else  Tongue

Thanks for the comments guys : )

I just got a bunch of new brushes for Photoshop the other day and created these designs:

I have most of those designs all glued to beads now, but I'm still trying to find the right size m
agnets for the back.  I could just use small ones, they're plenty strong enough, but I'm afraid people will think they look funny with a magnet that's less than 1/4 of the size of the bead : \

I just ordered these though, and have a really great idea for them that I think people are really going to like : )

3  Hand Painted Acrylic nails in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by madhatterdesign on: July 29, 2012 09:24:10 PM
Some of the cute and fun acrylic nails I make.  I buy the big packages of like 500 and then spend days painting them all by hand.  It takes a long time but they are so cute and worth it. 

I need to get more stripers and tools and practice some other hand painted designs.

4  Aquarium Bead Magnets in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by madhatterdesign on: July 29, 2012 09:06:37 PM
These are kind of a paper craft and a glass craft.  I use clear aquarium beads, and print out little pictures off the computer for them with photo paper, and then glue a really strong (neodymium) magnet on the backs of them.  The magnets are so strong that I have to use epoxy to hold them together or the picture rips right off when you take it off of the fridge.  Glad I figured that one out before shipping any.

I just got new brushes for photoshop last night and designed some new ones for beads that are a little bigger than a quarter. I'll have to post pictures of those too once I have them finished. The glue is drying right now  Smiley

6  Hand Painted Acrylic Nails - Fade Designs in Get Product and Website Opinions by madhatterdesign on: July 27, 2012 01:37:13 PM
These are some fake nails I have in my etsy shop. There isn't a ton yet, because I just recently started making them, but I have a lot of other design ideas in mind for them. Any critiques, or suggestions for color combinations and design patterns, are greatly appreciated  Smiley
