81  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re:ok, so who's making money here? on: December 02, 2003 10:01:18 PM
If you're nervous about jumping into your own business try writing a business plan for your crafting business. You can research online what is included. It will open your eyes to what kind of set up cost you're looking at, time you will spend working on it, expected return, etc.

Business plans are what people submit to banks, lenders, investers to get money for their business idea. If you need money to start and you already have a business plan, the bank should consider your request for cash.

If nothing else, do some serious budget planning to see if the time/effort/return on investment is worth it-- and above all believe in yourself!  Cheesy
82  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Comicbook Gift Idea? on: December 02, 2003 09:53:03 PM
Hey fellow crafters! I've done a lot of crafting and will show my work soon, but for the business at hand...

My dad LOVES comic books. Any ideas for a dad-like gift that I can incorporate comic books into? He's a huge collector and already has a method for storing (we're talking thousands here).

He uses a hankerchief but I don't have time to go hunt a vintage comic like one down and the last time I touched a sewing machine was in Home Economics in middle school.

Any & all suggestions welcomed! Please help!  Tongue
83  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re:Frosted glass -- How to make your own frosted glassware! on: December 02, 2003 09:47:56 PM
genius idea! i am making some with my friends nicknames on them or quotes that they like a lot for christmas

don't limit yourself to glasses!

mirrors, picture frames (the frame depending on the type or the glass that goes over the picture)

basically anything that is 'glass-like' that you can wash off with warm water

vases were already mentioned... another fab idea

84  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re:Origami Magnet Boxes on: December 02, 2003 09:30:29 PM
this is a great way to use those pictures of you and your friends that are way to small for frames

pictures taken by people who don't know what they are doing.. 100 feet away from the subject

or you can use little stickers

or find individual letters of the alphabet large enough for the marble, make a few for each letter and you can spell out little phrases.. like magnetic poetry but on a more intricate level

one last idea.... get some flowers (real or fake) and press them, perhaps spray them with something to stiffen them up and use as the 'design' for the marble magnet

^Are you talking about making the marble magnets?

because that could be a really cool/cheap/easy/memorable way of promoting yourself

who doesn't need a magnet?  Grin

For gluing the picture on the cd case, try rubber cement or heavy duty two sided poster type tape

rubber cement is just like glue except no matter how much you use, it will never wrinkle  Grin
