1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: I need a truckload of silk flowers for an installation. Any suggestion? on: July 05, 2009 05:33:19 PM
I would try to source anything I need a ton of wholesale - I don't have ideas off the top of my head, but I am sure that the wholesale floral district in NYC would be a start in the right direction.

Also this is the prime kind of thing to get a small grant for - you've got a specific need, a specific budget you can come to them with, a great track record (I've seen your work, it's incredible) and you're a grantmaking organization's dream in that regard - it would be a very clean proposal.

that's fun to look at - I like the use of the pen or pencil lines.

I like the way it makes me feel actually. The whole idea of gender being upset in some way, the space in between being honored.

What's really uncomfortable for some people may be comforting to others.

Wow! I have to say, rarely do I love fiber-only jewelry - these are amazing.

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: What kind of craft products would sell? on: March 11, 2009 12:30:27 PM
I've also got a remission/flare chronic illness - it does make work life interesting.

If I needed to get some fast cash, I honestly would start with supplies and work my way into handmade and more elaborate things. Simply papercrafted tags and cards that people could potentially customize and re-use would sell well, I think. If you can make a simple pattern for something that someone with no experience crafting could buy inexpensively and sell that in volume - that's a good idea too.

I built my main etsy biz on a foundation of sourcing and selling beads, gradually adding some jewelry and eventually transitioning to that.

I'm not trying to be discouraging about selling handmade, this is what worked for me.
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: What should I study in school to benefit my crafty business? on: March 11, 2009 12:27:11 PM
I would be certain to know how to use photoshop, CSS, HTML and possibly PHP. Web design is a high ticket item for something that you will save time and headache on if you DIY, and I wish I'd had the opportunity for at least *some* classwork in design, or new media, or internet marketing, or some aspect.

My photoshop and CSS and HTML knowledge is something I use every day and it's an edge I would not want to be without. I'm self taught, and really that's the sweaty hard way to do it. Like I said, I wish I'd taken classes.

Especially like the first - the expressions. He's worried, she's seductive.
