11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: protecting prints? on: September 01, 2007 12:35:57 PM
i am going to be selling some of my original woodcut prints at an art fair soon. the problem is that if someone buys one, i'm not really sure what to put it in to protect it. i've got no money right now, so i can't invest in anything fancy like plastic sleeves. the best thing i can think of is manilla envelopes, but i'm afraid that might look to trashy. thoughts?
Cello sleeves really aren't that expensive (65c each, maybe?), especially if you buy in bulk. I'd say it's definitely worth it because they look so much more professional - they don't need to be self-sealing or anything. I don't know what manilla envelopes are, so I'm just going to say you should try and go with the cello sleeves Wink
12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: THE GENERIC BOYFRIEND GIFT THREAD: A How-To! on: September 01, 2007 05:27:44 AM
For our two year anniversary, I made my boyfriend this shirt, did a personal swap here to get him a giant bag of Jolly Ranchers (he adores them but you can't get them in Ireland), bought him a Han Solo action figure, a DVD of a movie we both love and is nice and happy and reminds me of him and we've watched together etc etc, and I burned a cd of photos of us from the last two years. Smiley

And, I'm still working on little felt stuffies of us. (When I gave him his presents, which he loved, he said he thought I was going to make him a doll, to which I went "ahahahahaha Lips sealed")

Thanks, BabyAngel!

I did give it to him earlier and he loved it Smiley He liked everything I gave him but he really liked the shirt, I'm so happy! Cheesy It looks really good on him too, if I do say so myself.

So, without further ado - the action shots!

(He doesn't look all that impressed but I asure you he was Wink)

And us together:


So, it's all done and finished! He said he had no idea it was coming and that he can't wait to wear it. I'm so happy that he's happy and it was definitely worth all the paint and worries and time (I went through so many Russell Brand podcasts making this shirt) and everything, I'm really glad it all turned out so well and that he loves it so much, hurrah! If you have any comments I'm sure the boy and I would love to hear them  Wink

Thanks for looking!

Okay, the finished shirt! It was our anniversary yesterday but we didn't do presents then (he was unable to pick my present up from the post office, I am so curious!) but he's coming over today (my last day of summer) so I'm going to give it to him then, and hopefully action shots will follow in the near future.

This has been heat-set (or so I hope) and through the wash, design-side facing out, so hopefully it's good to go. It might crack over time, although at least the fabric paint is under it so maybe it won't even be too bad. Anyway, I used acrylics, that came out darker than they were supposed to, and are really heavy so it's possible he'll be protected from nuclear attack (always a plus). Let me know what you think? Smiley Do you think the colours are okay? I know they're not perfect but as long as it's recognisable than I think it's good enough.


(the brown looks really red because of my bedspread - lies, I tell you!)

Here's a close up of the paint:

I'm so much happier with this than the fabric paint, it just looks so much cleaner and better.



Sorry about the abundance of pictures throughout this project (and more to follow too!) but don't worry, I'm using Photobucket Wink Anyway, I better run off and shower and get his presents together! I hope he likes it!

That owl is so unusual! I don't think I've seen anything like it, and that's a compliment. Buckbeak is wonderful and that knit bag is amazing! What a great package!

i love that Tonks doll!! i am totally wisting!
Eee, I've been wisted! How cool, thank you!  Cheesy
And thank you very much, idrinktea!  Grin

Wow, there've been so many great packages today! I can't pick what I like most! The Harry sleeping mask is definitely up there, I love how it's even got tape in the middle. (I would have exclaimed that sentence but I've used exclamation marks at the end of  every sentence so far Tongue)

Happy birthday, Sarahsaloser! And happy my-two-year-anniversary, everyone Wink

Aw, I can't stop smiling! Thanks so much Whileywoo! I'm so, so glad you like it!

The painting was the piece I was talking about when I said I had finished something I was in love with...she's one of my favourites that I've done and I'm so glad she's gone to a good home! I was really, really worried about it too though because I think sending art is so much more subjective so there was more of a chance you wouldn't have liked her, but I'm so glad you do (and I'm so flattered you like my work!  Smiley) And yep, "Fair Ravenclaw From Glen"!  Grin

And I'm so glad you like the recipe binder too! I was really happy with the way all the newspaper (Daily Prophets, of course Wink One of the articles was even about OotP and had pictures and everything!) showed through, I thought it made it look all magical and layered but I was a bit worried you'd think it wasn't on purpose and that I just suck, hehe. So happy you like it!

Have you checked the inside back of the journal? Wink Originally it was supposed to be a swap journal, since this was your first swap, but I decided to leave it mostly blank so you could do what you wanted with it. There's also a certain Big Damn Hero on the map (although not the Hero of Canton which, I've just now realised, it probably should have been).

Okay, I think that's it (I knew there'd be more I meant to tell you!). Thanks so much for all the lovely things you said, and for taking such lovely photos, I really can't stop smiling! I'm so super happy that you like it, this was my first swap too and I'm just so excited that you like everything and that it went so lovely-ly! Eeeeeeeeeeee!

Must stop smiling now before I give myself wrinkles Tongue

And thank you, KTLynn and Annamhudson, too! Cheesy
