1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: The (new) Etsy critique thread! on: July 29, 2013 02:28:09 PM
Hi everyone, here is my new etsy store finally opened.....


I would really appreciate it if you could take a quick click and have a look - any info or advice would be great. Mostly im wondering about what my shop looks like to you at first glance? How do my photos look? Is different backgrounds ok? should i be shooting my items on people?? Do i need to be more creative in my item descriptions?

Thanks for your insights and hope you enjoy perusing my shop.  Smiley

Very cute items! I think your shop looks nice and professional. I did notice that on my screen your banner looks very dark, especially in contrast to the colors of your items, and kind of pixelated. Personally I'm more drawn to clothing that is pictured on people over mannequins. And in the pictures of the bottlecap items there seems to be a glare that is distracting from the item, like this listing:

Otherwise I think it looks like a cute shop:) Good luck with it!

I just started my first etsy shop and I'm nervous to put myself out there. I'd appreciate some advice from fellow craftsters on how to improve my shop/items:)

I'm disabled & I cant spend a lot of time online, so I'm also looking for how to promote my shop effectively without spending hours online, any tips?

I read the first post in this topic, I know I'm missing a banner but I'm working on it.
Thank you for your time! I truly appreciate it.

Thanks for that idea! I'll have to go send away for some, I totally forgot about this option. Thanks again!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / emboss faux leather? on: August 31, 2011 04:50:09 PM
I hope its ok to post this on this board, I couldn't decide where to post and figured my best chances of finding someone who works with faux leather would probably be here. I want to know if faux leather can be embossed the same way real leather can. What techniques work the best? Is there any certain type of faux leather I should look for that embosses better than others?

There are no stores near me that sell faux leather fabric and I really want to know if its possible before spending money for shipping if I buy it online. Thanks for your time!
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Re: Repainting (noob help!) on: August 30, 2011 07:09:06 PM
If you find something that works please post it:) I planned on painting mugs for christmas presents last year and spend weeks trying to find something that didn't scratch off. The best I found was using paints for ceramics and sharpies and then putting a clear topcoat over them. It didn't last very long, if you scratched at it with your finger it'd eventually come off. I ending up doing something else and now I have a bunch of plain mugs that I'd love to paint!

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / where to buy mix of beads? on: July 28, 2011 03:16:19 PM
Hi! I'm new to beading and I have a very random collection so far, so I'm looking to buy a mix of beeds, like a grab bag, instead of picking out all of the individual beads because until I get more familiar with different types of beads and what works best for what I want to do, its very overwhelming for me. I've looked on a couple of bead sites and haven't found any, does anyone know where I can buy a decent random mix of beads at a good price?

Also since I do not have a lot of extra money to spend, any tips for how can I get more familiar with beads and jewelry making supplies? Thank you for your time!

I tried it on a couple of spare feathers and they ended up sticking together, but I'm going to try it with a lighter hairspray and see if that works. Thank you so much for your input!

Thank you so much for your tip! I never thought of using a toaster as the heat source. I'll definitely give it a try since I haven't gotten around to getting a heat gun yet. Thanks again!
10  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / great info for sewing beds for shelter animals on: June 19, 2011 03:13:03 PM
I found a blog that has a bunch of really good information you need to know before sewing beds for animals in shelters, like how big they should be and what works best for the shelters, and tutorials. Thought some of you may be interested.
