Thanks guys!

Well, it's simple.  Doesn't take much time or effort. 

But I needed a way to get my window full of seedlings, and a way to keep track of what each little plant was.  And it needed to be freakin' cute, because it's a little apartment, and I look at them all day.   So... voila.   Hello My Name Is cups.   Take a cup, put a sticker on it, write in the name of the plant, and fill with dirt.  Add a seed, and wait patiently. 

Can you tell I love red???    Grin






sometimes the simplest ideas are extra fun. 
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's your Etsy shop doing now? on: October 16, 2007 07:06:07 AM
I'd be cancelling that sale, too.  It's not a harsh thing to do, with proper communication.  If she still wants it, she can come back and buy it and pay  Smiley


Thanks for the welcome back, Bixby .. seems to me that when somebody repeatedly doesn't pay, the "wait time" before cancelling a sale could be shortened, too.


BeaG - good luck with your move!!   What a huge change for you; I know it'll bring great things.  I hope it all goes very smoothly for you.

Thanks, wumpus - it sounds like I'll just have to experiment.  I'll do like you say and keep a close eye on it.  It's woven fairly tightly so I think it'll work.

Thanks for the info!!

Okay woolly people .. help a sister out, here.   Smiley

I know you can easy-felt a sweater by washing it in hot water and running it through the drier.  But I have a child's wool blanket, basket-woven in nature, that's about the size of a single bed (not hanging over the edges).   I want to felt it lightly, but I want it to come out more-or-less flat, not all mangled.  Can I still do it an easy way?  I am such a new-comer to this, I only vaguely know how I'd go about doing it any other way.  I fear that in the washer/drier it will clump into a big ball and not be flattenable.  (yes, that's a word). 

Help me!!! Cheesy

You should try visiting the bags and purses section of the site, and look at the tutorials for pouches and bags with zippers.  There's lots of good info around there about adding a zipper, and some pictures, too.  It's not terribly difficult, but it's fiddly, so pictures will help. Wink

Agh!!!   So great!   I think I'd want to snuggle him at night.   Smiley   Quite a lot of personality there.

 Smiley  Hello to some faces I recognize, and new ones too


Having moved straaaaaaaaaaiiiiig ht across the continent, struggled to find a new apartment with the boy, and working a new part-time job, my etsy stuff (and posting at Craftster!) have sat on the backburner a bit.   I'm trying to keep up both at least a little, cuz they keep me sane.  ish.

I actually opened a new etsy shop to disperse vintage fabrics and craft stuff into the universe where it'll be more loved, and that's slowly gaining some interest - I'm trying to include a mixture of really great/rare stuff that's a little pricier, and some bargains too.  I think I'll just be using the profits from that store to buy stuff from other people.  That seems fair, don't you think???   Wink

Anyhow, I'm off to explore some of the shops I don't recognize in this thread; just wanted to say hello again.  Hello!  Again!
