1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help painting branches on: May 02, 2018 03:59:57 AM
thanks, that helped Smiley  I like it better this way  -

(not sure why it looks so washed out though - doesn't look like that in real life  Huh )
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Help painting branches on: April 27, 2018 07:59:18 AM
Hi - I've been away from craftster for awhile, but I hope it's ok to ask for suggestions my first time back  Smiley

I started (acrylics) painting not too long ago, and I'm a little stuck on this one. It still needs flowers on the branches  but before I do that, the branches look spooky to me. Any suggestions to make them less spooky?
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: Which do you prefer: on: July 14, 2014 06:33:37 AM
I'm somewhere in the middle. I've had a couple of micro-manage partners (to the point of "here's a link to EXACTLY WHAT I WANT, NO CHANGES PLEASE!!!") and I made what they wanted (and hopefully liked!) but I couldn't help feeling I'd been "hired" to make something on commission. It got worse the one time my partner misread the questionnaire and made my swap item from the "do not" part of the questionnaire. oops Embarrassed   

Sometimes I think people put all that micro-manage kind of info in the questionnaire and 'about me' section of the profile so they don't have to answer the same questions swap after swap after swap...  That makes sense, but then there's not a lot room left for 'let's chat about your likes/not-likes' to start to know each other.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Best methods for saving shirt logos/images on: June 25, 2014 07:36:12 AM
what about using stabilizer on the back, just where the design is (plus an inch or so around), cut out the design, then use (matching or contrasting) embroidery floss to attach it to another shirt? A closely-done blanket stitch around the design should be enough to cover the raw edge, or fold back a little bit of cut-out design for a turned under hem, or use bias tape to cover the raw edge.
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: I'd like my feedback on: May 20, 2014 06:35:53 AM
have you tried submitting a help ticket to the swap mods? they've been really helpful whenever I've had swap issues
6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Friend of Craftster Raffle Rd 12 (SU May 9-June 6;SO June 16/14) on: May 13, 2014 07:39:21 AM
I'm thinking about joining. Would a pair of knit baby booties be ok? Or maybe 2 pairs?
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: swap point question on: December 14, 2013 03:33:46 PM
thanks, I didn't realize the number of points for a small/medium/large could vary. (I knew it wasn't the Craftster definition).
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / swap point question on: December 08, 2013 08:30:24 AM
(disclaimer... it's been a while since I've swapped so I may just be 'behind the times' with this question) I was looking at some of the recent swaps and some of them say things like "this is a small swap, just 3 points"  or "send a medium item which is 3 points"

I thought 3 points was a large? Has there been point-inflation? Am I just out of the swapping loop? (possible & likely!  Cheesy )
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: PIC OF FINISHED VIEW - Ideas please - too many doors, too little space on: December 02, 2013 10:20:31 AM
no, the hallway's not wide enough for the door to swing into the hall & still have enough clearance to walk by comfortably
