I made this from a young burda pattern ((its my favourite pattern)). It fits so perfectly. I customised it a bit with the red band across the top.

122  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / The Double Bass Project on: September 29, 2006 07:50:28 PM
So my boyfriend, Tim, got a violent shove into Rockabilly-ness ((hurrah to me)) and has decided he wants his very own double bass.

We bought a plain 'shell' i guess you'd call it from Ilja Grawert ((a violinmaker in the Gabba)) for just under a thousand. It was bigger than we thought and more sturdy which is two good things!

Yesterday we went to Bunnings to pick out paint. Tim has decided to paint it gloss black with green leopard print sides. He needs more practice with his leopard printing so at the moment he's painting leopard-spots on my new flowerpot.

Anyway, he started the undercoat last night and has done the first coat of the black this morning. He loves itmore than me which is fine because then i can flip through as much craftster as i want!!









So far so good!


edit:: Tim would like me to keep updating this post as he goes along. he's pretty chuffed you all think its so good Smiley
123  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Smart-Ass Medical/Hospital slogans needed on: June 21, 2006 09:58:53 AM
So. For my label launch in August, I am going to get some teeshirts screen printed for the people that are going to the launch as a free-gift. Across the back, near the neckline will be my label's name, but across the front I would like about three different slogans to do with the medical field.

I can't for the life of me ((its been a very productive day - i've used my brain alot)) think of a clever enough slogan.

All i have is "Just what the Doctor Ordered" but i don't know if that sounds cheeky or just cheesy?

My friend suggested "A _____ a day keeps the doctor away"

I think I like it but i need other's opinions and suggestions! I am looking for something cheeky as my launch guests are all very alternative. Please nothing I'd find on a supre shirt!  Grin
124  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Questions for You clever folks with online stores:: on: June 21, 2006 09:48:54 AM
OK, Here's a bunch Of questions about your online stores. I need as many opinions as possible please folks! I can't sleep I've been thinking about this too much.

My label ((as soon as its registered)) will be going online in a matter of weeks. I need help with some decisions.

Shopping Carts
The host I think I'm going with www.powweb.com has a shopping cart included. It also supports Paypal. I'm pretty sure I'll be going through Paypal. I've heard that setting up a shopping cart is very difficult though. What are your views on paypal and shopping carts?

Bandwidth
I have no idea how much bandwidth i will be using. In fact, i really don't know what bandwidth is exactly. I'm imagining its how much space I'll have to use,  is that right? Anyway, how much bandwidth do you use a month for your site?

Finances
Did you put a certain amount of money into your business? Do you keep your income and expenses for your business seperate to your household's?

Registration
I'm planning on selling my designs in stores as well. One day in my own shop Smiley. Did you register your name just for the internet? Did you trademark it also?

Thanks!
125  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / What do I need to do to protect my models? on: June 20, 2006 11:23:40 PM
Ok, so, the wheels are in motion finally for my site. Several things are on the go at once, and luckily for me, I have quite a few contatcs who are just as excited about this as I am. I have 2 fellas working on the web design. I have two photographers on standby, I have myself and 2 others beginning to sew up the designs and I havea  million ideas on standby. I have models linign up to get photo shoots done and i even have two or three bands willing to wear some of my designs for tehir gigs ((LUCKY!))

I have a  question though.

I'm not sure if anyone can help me here, but i thought i'd give it a chop

I've got quite a few ranges ready, and as a little exclusive section on my site, I'm toying with the idea of a pay-per-view section. Customers buy and download paperdolls of some of my models ((of course the ones who are willing)) in nothing but their underwear with little outfits to put on them. It won't be exceptionally pornographic, and of course they're very alternative models.

What i need to know is, what sort of model release forms do i need? 18+ precautions etc? How do i jack the security up so people cant hack in and steal the 'dolls'? What else should I be considering?
126  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Doesn't Anyone Know Of A Book About Fifties Style Housewives? on: April 14, 2006 02:56:00 AM
I'm really into the whole domestic housewife, keeping the house clean and tidy, cooking excellent meals for the family, always looking perfect etc sort of thing and I was wondering if anyone knew of a little how-to style book or anything about that sort of thing?

I saw on a crime show once a girl was locked in a room and her only book was something called "How to be a Good Housewife" or somethign like that. that's kind of what i was searching for.

127  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Organising a Fashion Show? on: February 20, 2006 05:12:34 AM
So, my three friends and I are studying fashion design a Tafe ((in Brisbane)). We thought it would pretty neat if we did a fashion show at the end of the year, showing off our talents. We're all pretty different to everyone else in our class and so we decided we'd totally play that up.

So anyway, seeings as we're not really 'fashionable' as in the latest fashions ((we have a girl who makes 1800's style dresses, a girl who makes zombie couture, another who makes futuristic alternative wear and me who makes just about anything!)), and we've never done anything like this before, i was wondering if anyone knew of anyone who could help us out, or could give us some pointers. We were thinking of putting up flyers at hair and make-up schools and whatever tafe's do beauty, just to see if anyone wants to practice their skills with us, we'd be able to give them copies of photographs of their work as well.

er, what else... its totally not-for-profit so we want to be able to pull this off with minimum expense.

So anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!!

128  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / For the Pirate Housewife who Loves to Cook... on: February 02, 2006 11:20:20 PM
Oh yeh.





i whipped this up last night while looking through old woman's weekly cookbooks. i felt like getting a little domesticated and learn to cook. But instead of heading to the stove, i headed for the sewing machine! You can't see in the picture, but there's a little black bow on the top left. I've been wearing this apron all day... heehee...
129  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / The Little Skirt That Grew up To Become A Dress on: February 01, 2006 06:14:20 PM
So this is a skirt my boyfriend tim made for me. It had a stretchknit waistband and a woven skirt area. He chose the material and figured it all out all by himself with only a few carefully-placed-pins from me Smiley

The skirt ended up being way to long for me, cute tho, i liked the way it trailed on the floor. But tim was sasd because he knewe it would get ruined. So i just took off my shirt and hoiked it up over my boobs. he liked that part! and now he's happy and proud!

He's a very clever boy and while I study fashion, he's about to study photography so we can make our dreams of a owning our own label a realiy. He's a darling and I love him so much.
