21  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Things not selling! Help please? on: December 02, 2011 02:27:38 PM
i looked at your stuff too... you are too cheap! i mean your stuff looks great; it's priced low.I'll bet you're in a fancy area and people think if it's too cheap, it couldn't be "good." With prices like yours, your market is teenage girls/younger people. try and price a few things higher and see what happens....

23  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Cake pop Question on: November 26, 2011 11:03:52 AM
yes, those candy melts are what you use to coat the cake..... they are "chocolate like" and used when teh coating/chocolate has to harden..they do make them in lots of cool colors, for holiday candy etc...my nieces just made cake pops and used regular chocolate chips and the coating was not hard enough, to keep the cake ball suspended.  the cake balls slid down the sticks! we ate them anyway, but they were balls on the bottom of a stick; not pops Wink
24  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Chuppah Help on: November 21, 2011 09:06:26 AM
i don't want to bum you out .. but that is a pretty atypical/unusual chuppah. it looks more like a canopy. if i could suggest, many chuppahs are made with four poles/sticks/bamboo --one pole at each corner of a square of fabric and then 4 friends/attendants each hold a pole.  that helps with alot of the support problems. I've also seen teh poles placed in large urns, flower pots/ cement to keep them upright. if you want to see some beautiful chuppahs and get some inspiration, else wachs is a fabric artist who has done many:

i also can recommend interfaithfamily.com as a great source of information and inspiration.

many chuppahs start as a grandmother's tablecloth or piece of mother's wedding gown --that you can then embroider names/dates or paint on symbols etc... there is really no"religious" requirements for what a chuppah has to look like

good luck! and mazel tov! Cheesy
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: my first ear flap hat! on: November 08, 2011 06:33:37 AM
thanks for your comments! i've already started an adult sized flap hat --my 19 yo daughter requested it   Grin

i make the flaps first, on double pointed needles, (you'll need 3 needles to knit, 2 to leave the flaps on) i just leave a tail, and then end teh flaps. then after you cast on a bit on circular needles, knit in teh first flap, then cast on more, then knit in teh second flap. you have to be careful, which side is knit and which is perl...on my first try, the hat was garter and the flap was stockinette. now i find if you position teh flap so that teh stockinette side is "inwards" as you knit it onto the circular, it will turn out OK (eg on circular, the stockinette side is inside...)

thanks for the pattern link!

27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my first ear flap hat! on: November 06, 2011 02:04:01 PM
it's blurry b/c my son took the pic with his phone for me ... but i successfully learned how to do earflaps! (from youtube i think it was "knit pink or "verypink"") I have lots of problems with gauge and adapting patterns to what i have in my stash.. so any advice re; that is appreciated. also, if anyone has a good adult size ear flap hat pattern that they can post/share; that might help me out...meanwhile; i'm going to give this to the 4 month old next door and tell him to start growing  Cheesy
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: WIP Wednesday - June 1 on: June 02, 2011 08:21:26 AM
trying to sew up my pink nature's choice  cardigan. i had a friend help me decipher the pattern on putting it together but i think i still have guage issues..the sleeves look like wings.
how do you do a mattress stitch if the item is all in garter?? i'm just kind of whip stitching it together ;; and so many people/places said mattress stitch is better. Huh
i also have to learn to pick up stitches for teh collar when i'm done.
i'll try to post a pic when it's done
this is the pattern:

OK it's friday and i'm finally posting to WIP Wednesday!!! I needed my daughter's helping resizing pics --i'm finished this cardigan --it's a Lion Brand pattern and the yarn is nature's choice cotton. i liked the yarn, but this is my first cardigan so i'm going to need some guidance sewing it together...it seems big and baggy..and the sleeves say "raglan" so they look like wings-   Cheesy-but i'm just excited that i'm done..i'll try to post when it's sewn up!

really nice! i enjoyed looking through them --i'm a photographer too (not as my career) and i think you're very talented. with digital, isn't it nice to just shoot away (but really, 1500??) the B&G should be pleased  Cheesy
