2791  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Etsy sales way down? Or is it just me!? on: August 01, 2005 05:14:51 AM
Lots of things slow down in summer. People are spending money on their vacations and the local festivals (some buying crafts, no doubt!) and such.

Didn't Etsy have a marketing/advertising campaign a short time ago, which resulted in excitement and sales? Well, that campaign is over! Time for the next one. It's also up to you to market your site. Having a website doesn't guaranty any sales.

The holidays are coming up - get busy now!
2792  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / In search of an adhesive on: August 01, 2005 04:58:06 AM
I'm looking for an adhesive that will stick to the back of duct tape, which I assume is some sort of vinyl. In any case, there's oil in it, which makes it slick.

Please don't "guess"; E6000 doesn't work, and I've tried many other things. If you've got an answer on this one, or another way you've solved the problem, I welcome your advice!
2793  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: career on: August 01, 2005 04:52:09 AM
Just off the top:

You could always check out your local community education program to find out if you can teach a class. You could provide a class through them, or through a community or neighborhood center. It can be an adult or a kids' class. Moms might look for something fun to do with little Billy or Suzy.

If you're art savvy you might work p/t at a local craft or art supply store.

You might approach daycare centers to see if they would offer a special class, featuring you.

Churches in my area won't offer anything that makes a profit (state law, apparently). Yours might be different.

Approach Red Hat Societies. They're always looking for something fun to do, and they'll pay you.
2794  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Bread Pudding recipe needed on: August 01, 2005 04:42:06 AM
My favorite is to make a basic bread pudding, and bake in some inserted fresh raspberries and white chocolate chips. The mix up some ganache (equal parts of cream and white chocolate melted together) to drizzle over. Nummy!
2795  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: 1960's recipes/ food ideas HELP!!! on: August 01, 2005 04:38:45 AM

Drag out the Cambell's Soup, y'all! Creamy, thick sauces, cheddar cheese, little use of herbs and spices (salt and pepper is your spice; parsley and occasionally thyme).


2796  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: preemptive crystallized pineapple on: August 01, 2005 04:31:28 AM
Here's my advice: buy some! It's available in all my local grocery chains, usually with the bulk stuff or with dried fruit.
2797  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: HELP! Why doesn't my site come up when I do a search? on: July 30, 2005 04:39:12 AM
Even after you submit it, it'll take many weeks for it to kick in, so the sooner you submit your site to the search engines, the better.

Keywords and tags aren't enough these days. You have to work your keywords into your page text. If you sell handmade items, the words handmade should show up on your front page somewhere (instead of "made by me", for example).
2798  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Want To Start Jewelry Business on: July 30, 2005 04:26:41 AM
You can easily spend lots more money on supplies than you would on a website; are you sure you can afford to do so?

This could easily become a money-losing proposition for you unless you have a budget in mind. I'd write up a budget before ordering the supplies.
2799  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: selling a pattern to be made by someone else - any experience? on: July 30, 2005 04:06:45 AM
Also, retain your copyrights. Get an agreement done up allowing them the use of your pattern, but to keep the right to use - and sell - your pattern elsewhere. If they want all rights to the pattern, you should charge them more to take it from you.
2800  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: how would you make this? on: July 30, 2005 04:01:19 AM
The first thing that comes to my mind is embroidery hoops and springform pans, and although I'm not sure how the pans would work, you might be able to use the same kind of latch to tighten things up. Other that, some other mechanics would have to be involved, and I'm certainly no expert!
