That is really cute  Smiley
I love that shape of dress - its so forgiving but still slimming. 
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: List of Crafty Business Books on: April 23, 2009 07:28:03 AM
I'm reading Craft, Inc. right and its great!  I highly recommend this book to anyone thinking about starting their own business.

I also have The Boss of You by Lauren Bacon & Emira Mears; not necessarily a crafting business book but still a very good look at being your own boss.

I'm a little late to the party on this one but freakin' wow!!  That is really cool! 
I would never have thought to use a shower curtain as material for a hoodie.
Pure.  Genius.   Grin

I love love love the simplicity of this dress.  It can go from office to dinner out with just a few accessories. 
Totally cute!!   Cheesy
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Sticky Return Question on: April 21, 2009 09:16:56 AM
That is sticky but if I was in your shoes, I'd email her and let her know that since its been 3 weeks and you have not recieved the package, she can no longer return it.  3 weeks is plenty of time to return an item you dont want, IMO.  It would be pretty low of her to give you poor feedback since she's the one thats being difficult, not you!! 

Good luck.
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: How did you come up with your brand name? on: April 21, 2009 08:32:32 AM
I was trying to come up with a name for my business that was fun, carefree, but left me open to doing lots of different things.  After brainstorming a gazillion different names, I finally chose "ZuckerBaby" (zucker is sugar in German). 

Its all the things I wanted in a name plus its super easy to remember Wink

Yeah...thats a pretty boring account of how ZuckerBaby got its name   Tongue  Grin

Those look very nice!

I started playing around with their service and I can see how one can get sucked into all the little goodies they offer....I know I did! Grin

Thanks for uploading your cards for us to check out!!

I would consider that to be a hobby to pay for supplies. I'm also of the opinion these days that unless the govt wants to come over and help me with menus, sew buttons on my bags or do my marketing for me they can just be satisfied with what I decide their cut should be. OK, sorry for the rant.

Honestly, though, I would be surprised if you actually made a real profit in that period of time. I would consider it a wash as far as income vs. expenditures goes. No point in complicating matters.

Thats what I was thinking as well.  Any "profit" would go straight back into the business to buy more supplies rather than paying me a salary. 

Thanks for your thoughts CC!
