Looks like the govt is pushing through some seriously flawed legislation. There's a bill in committee right now that I'm sure will get a vote because it's a response to the recent "peanut deaths". The language is so general and the reach so broad that organic and other safe and small farmers will be forced into chemicals and vaccines and other stuff, rendering organic and natural farms obsolete. These smaller farms cannot afford the additional equipment, supplies, lawyers, "experts" (govt-approved ones, of course), and workers needed to comply with such outrageous requirements.
If you care about the food you eat, I urge you to contact your reps now while it's still in committee. If it gets put up for a vote, it just plainly will be too late to stop it.
I personally love matching stuff with a bag, what do you guys think? I'm only doing cashless/card wallets and not more complicated ones because I can spend hours looking for the perfect wallet for myself and not find anything (I actually only carry a card wallet because I never carry cash anymore anyway), so making a matching cash/change/card wallets have me in a bit of a conundrum.
Would you want just the bag, having a pile of your own accessories you'd want to use, or are you interested in matching stuff?
I am really excited to have gotten my new sewing machine out of its precious box (almost broke it getting it out - yippee!) and slapping together some cool bags. The material I used here were actually some dollar store vinyl-front pillows I thought were really cool. On the hot dog one I was going to put buttons on the ends of the handles, but sort of liked how the stitching added to the kitsch of it. What do you think? These are all reinforced stitching with interfacing and pockets and are rock solid bags. Picture below, but the link here will show back and insides (sort of; I didn't have an extra pair of hands to hold the bag open!):
Yes - free. I design, and you get all the graphics you need for an Etsy banner and avatar, plus your logo graphics in various formats, and a biz card layout you can take to a printer ( (pre-determined, because in printing, size matters).
First two who are serious get the work done. If you want to see my work, you can go to my etsy shop http://craftlicker.etsy.com which is quite small now, or go to the into the pan link in my sig to see my other graphic work. I've been in business for quite a while, so you'll be in good hands.
I decided I don't love food and cooking most, but actually share my love with crafty stuff, so I've plunked down a new etsy shop and will offer lots of stuff (graphic design, pre-made graphics, buttons, and will do some laser printing of marketing materials also).
OK, so here's an example of a pre-made design package:
Geez, I don't know what they're called, but I'm looking only for the part that's shaped like a squat bowling pin (or at least the outline of it, since it's just bended metal), and clips onto your whatever-you're-using-as-the-pull. What are they called, or better yet, where can I buy them online? Many thanks! I can't find these in any local craft store and can't for the life of me give an appropriate name to them!
Sure, they're all food subjects, but in an objective sense, what do you all think of my holiday offerings for this year? My market is chefs and foodies, and being one myself, I have a fairly ready-made audience.
