Oh yes, a color to paint the frame.

I am making a picture frame for a friend's bday and I have a maroon cat that I want as a dectoraive dodad to add to it.  Here is the link to what the cat looks like.  It is darker in person, more of a maroon.

Looking for some crafts to do with photos I've taken.  (Most are animal -reptile in particular- photos.)

That is not scrapbook related (sorry scrappers).

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Yes, a question about cost... premaking items that are needed. on: June 07, 2011 08:48:03 PM
For those of you who sell crafts where certain items are always used, in my case jewerly and jumprings.

Do you make a butt load ahead of time or as your project needs it?  I mean with something as simple as jumprings, they are must less costly to make than buy.  How should I price myself for that cost if I am spending an hour making findings I use in my works?  I don't really wanna figure how much per jump ring I can get if I buy x amount, I mean I could, but then I guess that would be based on the material used.  Gold vs. alumunium.

Should I just add the price of wire I use?  Just make it a flat hourly cost, spend 3 hours a week making a bunch of findings?
6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Perfection: it is killing me! on: June 07, 2011 08:40:29 PM
I am my own worst enemy.  Really, I am.

I've been making some jewelry that I'd like to sell and I like my designs and putting the work into making them, but I am getting caught up in the fact that it is not 'perfect'.  I am trying to let myself enjoy the fact that it is handmade and the little quirks are part of it, but I am driving myself crazy over the littlest things.

I made a bracelet with heart buttons and it turns out nice, but I took it apart 3 different times.  Some of the hearts face the wrong way or the jump ring was on the wrong side letting the heart lean right instead of left.  With it being a charm bracelet it is meant to dangle and just be whimsical...While taking it apart, I re did all of the jump rings cause I had used a slightly octogonish chop stick, and found a perfectly round knitting needle for them (at a distance it is/was hardly noticeable).  But now while beading, the beads all need to face the same why, the "s" shaped jumps, tops need to face the left and bottoms the right.  I go through half of them figuring if I bend it at an able I'll have a 'straight s jump (does that make sense?)  And then each been needs to be spaced apart evenly with everything being symmetrical.
I think maybe by drawing out first or even setting up beads as to how I want them can help me get those things perfect.

*sigh* Am I crazy or what?

Nice!  Is the magnatic snaps an issue for the electronics?

Very cute, plastic or glass?

The leaves are glass and the big green beads are rubber coated.  And the small green beads are just seed beads.
