Hi guys and gals I have been lurking on here a very long time but not really posting or making anything for a few reasons like not being good with my computer and two not having a camera or anything really cool to post about.  I am new to crafting entirely.  I am curious and I really really dont mean to upset anyone at all I am just not clear about the boundaries for this community so I am sorry if anyone gets upset here but here goes.  Ok if you see something on here like fake teeth for example and there is photos, directions and tutorials it is because the maker is ok with other people copying it or doing their version yes?  If the person who does copy it may they sell it their friends and family if they wish or in a local craft fair or is that wrong to do?  I have a few ideas I would like to share once I get my camera and computer figured out better.  I hope I dont offend anyone with my ramblings and hypothetical questions I just dont want to do anything to upset anyone on here because it is a great community and I hope I can share ideas and learn a lot thanks guys and gals!  happy crafting!

normally, if someone posts something on craftster (especially if they include a tutorial/directions) it's meant to a. show off their craftyness and get criticism and b. to show other people how to make their own creativty grow Smiley

i'm pretty positive you can sell things you make even if it's based off of someone else's project, as long as you don't make it exactly the same (same colors, patterns etc.) as another persons. take their general ideas and infuse them with your own creativity and you should be fine Smiley

hope that helps,

thanks so much for the tips you are quick!  i am not into craft shows at all and i am not really good enough yet to even copy peoples work at all like duh i dont know how to sew yet but i am here to learn and i just wanted to make sure i was practicing good manners on here and not upset anyone at all like if people would have got mad and said no dont try to make things in tutorials well then i would have to respect that i hope i didnt come off sounding like a troll or some sort of rogue crafting hustler or something!  thanks again!
