1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: yet another domain name HELP please!! on: April 05, 2006 10:30:25 PM

That name does expire this year so maybe if do hold off... I can get it otherwise, I will just come up with another similar name I suppose!!
Thanks for your reply, Jennifer
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / yet another domain name HELP please!! on: April 03, 2006 08:43:10 AM
so after typing this out for the 4th time i am hoping it goes though now!!

after alot of discussion with my husband about what to name the site etc we wanna make....
We came up with www.underthehill.ca (.com is unavailable)
First off do you think that .ca will hinder me on the web??
And what do you think of the name??
I was thinking it would work and I was happy with it because, you could have it set up at different areas.. Ie: chaos under the hill, for an assortment page with a bunch of different things etc.

Anyways please tell me what you think?Huh
And if any creative minds can maybe come up with a tag line that would be SO great... I have a few ideas, but would love some creative minds like all yours put input in on it!!!

TIA, Jenn

Thankyou...
Thats basically what I had in mind, I was just unsure as to what was the difference by being inspired by something, and copying the product.
I will for sure keep in mind the mentality as to how I can make something original etc. and add something new to what I decide to make!!
Thankyou so much for your reply!
Jen
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / craft selling "rules" on: March 31, 2006 11:29:53 AM
Hi everyone,
I have been crafting for some time, but never sold anything.
Now that I am taking on a new venture of starting a website displaying and selling some of mine and other's works.
I am wondering what the per say rules are when selling some crafts you make.
Mainly wondering about getting ideas from here (the best site I have found in AGES, by the way LOL) If I see a tute of something I like, am I 'allowed' to make it and sell it?? I am leaning towards thinking Yes, because things are not copyrighted etc. and Alot if it is just 'winging' it, but I do not wanna step on toes if I am not allowed to!
Also what about taken the basic idea from someone elses craft project and making something like it myself?
Is a person 'allowed' to look though say etsy or something... think "hey I could make something like that" then sell it??

oh confusion in my head...
must stop thinking!!

thanks for the help
Jenn

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / another business name question?? on: March 29, 2006 08:12:24 PM
I would like to start a **small** online store selling various OOAK designs and reconstructed items.
It will be clothing, jewllery etc....
It will be various local crafters able to sell from this one site... (details still in the works LOLmy first idea was underkittyhill.com???
But after getting snowbears' reply.. hmmm I rethought that train of thought LOL
So I am back to looking for an name that resembles all homemade/handmade items...
and something that coming up with a logo wouldn't be that hard for...
Plus this will give me another excuse to design another website !!!
your help would be SO much appreciated!! I am drawing complete blanks, as I would like something not cutzie...more edgy as the design for the site will be more retro!!

I haven't had a chance to go to the thrift shops etc down the road...I should see when there are all open actually...
Prices at VV have gone up... which is why we started shopping around at goodwill there are much better priced!!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / image HELP for a newbie please!! on: March 29, 2006 10:48:22 AM
I am a newbie to the site, and to various forms of crafting, BUT... I need some help!
I know that a various amount of topics have been discussed on this site about copyright and registered trademarks etc.
I am wondering if I am to sell T-Shirts with stencilling/silkscreening done on them, what can I use besides the obvious my own artwork??
Those of you that use this method for your work? what do you do, which sites to you use? I do not mind paying a minimal fee etc, to use artwork/clipart either so those sites will not bother me.

If thats all clear as mud now... PLEASE help!!

Thanks so much Jennifer
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Wedding Gowns for the... um.. ample? lol on: March 24, 2006 11:01:53 AM
Thanks for that guys.. made my day!!
I agree definately make a veil if you want one...
they are super easy and theres tutorials online everywhere...
and play with different fabrics too... I had one made out of chiffon like the sleeves seeing it was a more celtic look...
and SO easy... they are most often done by hand and I did a veil a month ago for a friend... took under 1 hour to make!!!

Congrats on your wedding!
I got married last July and I am not tiny LOL
I went to a clearance rack at a bridal shop in our city and looked for something that caught my eye!
It turned out the only one that I "kinda" liked was a size 6 hmmm only 12 sizes to small....
So I made the back into a corset and added some panels to the back to make it fit... I also changed the sleeves and added more beading...
heres a pic... (if it works...)

Sorry its kinda big...
Anyways... I do not have a before pic right now, but it was a size 6, and I am a 18 in street clothes...
I just hope that it will be resellable when I get around to cleaning it etc, seeing it has been altered etc.

I think the best thing to do is look at styles you like, then go to dress shops see if they have a similar style and work from there,
Or you can get it made, just that tends to end up costing ALOT more, then buying and altering a previously not wearable dress...
If you need help with anything let me know I would love to help you out!!
Jenn
