281  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Morning Glory Mosaic on: March 01, 2007 11:49:52 AM
This is one of my latest mosaics. I used all sorts of various mediums to create it, and am pleased with the outcome.  Smiley
282  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Texas Flag Mosaic on: February 09, 2007 12:48:11 PM
Just finished this today for my in-laws, who live in Austin, Texas. I'm very pleased with how it turned out.   Smiley

The substrate is plexiglass, with stained glass pieces, grouted in black. Then I put hooks and a chain to hang it from.
283  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Plastic Soda Caps (And Much More) on: January 22, 2007 08:09:00 AM
Found this site, and had to show the wonderful ideas this woman has come up with for plastic soda caps, and other plastic lids.

If you look at the rest of the site, especially the Sculptures, she reuses all manner of things. Very inspiring!!! Also check out the wire work.

When I searched I could not find it posted, so if this has been posted previously I apologize.
284  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Shopify on: January 20, 2007 10:50:23 PM
Found out about Shopify from another Craftster member who has a shop there. So I was curious to check it out, and see how it is. There is so much more to it than Etsy in many respects.

They offer variety in appearance, and here are some random shops to show what I mean:
http://www.gymtrix.net/
http://www.lannacharm.com/
http://olivergreen.myshopify.com/
http://crankypals.myshopify.com/

There are so many options to create your own site.

The fee they charge is only 3% on your monthly sales. No listing fees, no limit to images, etc. You get 40MB of space to have your shop information.

Has anyone else here given it a try? What do you think of Shopify?
285  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Mosaic Frame - Gift for Someone Special on: January 10, 2007 02:16:59 PM
Every week for the last 8 - 9 months I have been learning with my Rabbi's wife (the Rebbetzin). She is so wonderful, and kind I wanted to make a special thank you for her, and this is what I did.

I took some photos of the Rabbi in our temple, and then made a mosaic frame to put the picture into. Here is the result, and I am on my way to take it to her now. The pictures do not show the china pattern very well I'm afraid.





I am so pleased with how the photo, and mosaic frame turned out.  Smiley

Has anyone heard of, as either a buyer or seller, of HomeGrownMarket.com?

288  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Grandmother's Sewing Box - A Tribute ATC on: December 28, 2006 05:47:26 PM
This is my first ATC, and it is a tribute to my Grandmother. She passed away November '05 at eh age of 96. I got all her sewing kits, kniiting supplies, etc. She had things from when she was in her 20's that is just like new! But that is how everything she owned was kept.

Anyhow, here is the card made from some of the items. If you see the initials RF on the label tape, that was her maiden initials, and she was married for 51 years. I could go on about all the things in the sewing kits, but instead here is the card.

289  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Buyer Turn Ons on: December 06, 2006 11:33:09 PM
Since we have a topic on Buyer Turn Offs, I thought we should also find out what people like about buying.

For me it is many things, but to sum it up: Attention to detail & Customer Service

These two things can go a long way to making me return to a shop. Even if there are little bumps in the sellers road, if they can show me positive signs in these two areas, I will most likely return to there shop.

As a seller I try very hard to make these two things my priorty. I do that by:
  • good communication
  • show appreciation for business
  • little extras that say the customer is important
  • follow through on my promises
There are several other things, but this is my short list. Wink

Any one else have thing they look for in buying from others? What do you do to keep your customers coming back?
290  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATC - ACEO Question on: December 06, 2006 12:58:03 AM
I've been checking out the ATC section, and I must say it is quite interesting. Loads of incredible work, and techniques that are very clever.

My question:
This may be something I want to try my hand at. I do lots of PC generated art (Bryce, Poser, Terragen, Fractals, etc.), is that an acceptable form of ATC's? If so are they less wanted than the other forms?

Thanks for the help. Smiley
