1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / filled tubular netting stitch on: April 03, 2011 08:18:27 PM
Hi fellow bead-a-holics  Smiley  Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.  I am looking for a tut on a filled tubular netting stitch.  I have found a ton of tuts on the actual net stitch but can't find any for the filled one.  I was hoping to find a free tut  Wink I tried goggling and and coming up with only peyote and regular net stitches....

TIA for any help

Link to show what type of stitch I am looking to achieve...if this is your shop I LOVE you items!!

I wasn't sure where these should go, MODS please move if I am in the wrong section.

Here are a few ribbon sculptures I made over the last week...butterflies are my favorite :-) Last pic is a mini ribbon flower...flower measures 1.5 inches wide

OK, please keep in mind that the photographs are HORRIBLE as I was so excited on how they came out that I took pics while they were still on the cookie sheet.

I can't wait for these to cure so that I can attach them to keychains or necklaces...my SD already laid claim to one of the Twilight ones.

So without further ado here are my bottle caps.....

No sure where I should put this so I guess I'll put it here  Wink

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / I took the PLUNGE into my own website..... on: October 05, 2008 03:15:14 PM
Hi all,
After much consideration and a bit of shoving from my DH I finally took the plunge into my own site.  I would love some feedback on the overall look and feel of the site not to mention pricing.  I know that some of the pics need to be updated as they seem fuzzy and I am currently working on that but any other suggestions or comments besides that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

All swappers MUST be pre-approved for this swap!


DETAILS:
This is a SUPPLIES ONLY swap.  Post a "shop" of at least 5 items for everyone else in the swap to choose from, SUPPLIES ONLY, there will be no handcrafted/finished items accepted as there already is a wonderful swap for those.

What is a shop?
A shop is a post in this thread,listing the items that you have available to be claimed.  You don't have to have an actual online shop to participate in this swap.  As long as you can post a list of items, with pictures if at all possible, you have a swap shop!  You can also manage your shop pictures on your own picture hosting and just post links in your shop post.  It's up to you to keep your shop as up to date as possible by removing items that have been claimed and posting any new items you want to add.  Items in your shop should all have a 'price' between 1 and 3 points.  Make sure it's clear how much each item costs.


RULES:
- The majority of the posts in this thread should be shops.  That's what we all want to see, right?  So let's try and keep all the discussion over here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=186530.msg1953267#msg1953267
- When you claim an item, mail chrissiemags, GatsbyGirl, and the person you claim from.  Claims will be first come, first served.  The first person to send a PM to all three of the proper people IN THE PROPER FORMAT will get the item.
- Rather than keeping track of the number of claims, like the other ongoing swaps, we will be using a point system for this swap.  Here are the most important things you need to know about your points:
- Every time someone claims an item from your shop, you get the price of the item in points. (You cannot use your points until you have SENT the item that was claimed.)
- Every time you claim an item from someone else's shop you spend the amount of points in the price of the item.
- Once you have 7 points (either pending or spendable), your shop will be temporarily closed for business until you have less than 7 points.  Please edit your shop post to put 'CLOSED' in large bright letters to make it clear to everyone when your shop is closed.  There will also be a list near the top of the thread with all the closed shops.
- Once you have 0 points, you can't claim any items until you have at least 1 point.
-The organizers will keep a running point total at the top of the thread, but you should try and be aware of your own points too.  All claims you make and claims made from you should be posted at the bottom of your swap shop .
- When you receive an item, PM chrissiemags and GatsbyGirl and the person who sent it to you with the SEND BY DATE
- DC#'s are now required for all swaps and no longer optional.  You must provide a DC# when you PM that the item has been shipped. Save your receipt for International shipping as not all countries have a customs #.
- When someone claims an item on your list and is confirmed by an organizer, you are responsible for removing that item from your shop post. Please be considerate and not make everyone wait for pics to load of items that are no longer available!!  If you have multiples of a similair item please make it clear how many are available.

Please take note, this is how feedback will work for this swap:

- This is how feedback will work for this swap:
     ~All your packages were sent/received with good communication and you leave with your starting 3 points-POSITIVE Great swapper!
     ~All your packages were sent/received without good communication and you leave with your starting 3 points-POSITIVE All packages sent/received. Could have communicated better!
     ~All your packages were sent/received with good communication BUT YOU DON'T leave with your starting 3 points-NEGATIVE~ Claimed more than they sent.

You will have the option of offering your wares in the next round WITHOUT being able to claim to regulate yourself back to your original 3 points, if you choose not to do this then unfortunately we will have to leave a negative feedback as you had the opportunity to even yourself out and be fair to the swap and you choose not to do so.
