51  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sad Girl and Alien Chick two pieces of digital artwork on: January 11, 2010 02:00:44 PM
This is my first attempt at creating something almost completely by hand with little use of brushes.   The only brushes I used on these is for the background images and the eyelashes.  Everything else was done with a round brush and blending tool.  For my first attempt, i'm pretty proud! The program I used was GIMP please leave and comments and or critisism!

First is sad girl:

She started off with a pretty neutral look on her face and I decided she needed a little emotion.  I really love the way her hair turned out.

Next is my alien chick:

I decided to just mess around and have a little fun with this one.  I went back and forth on whether or not I should give her hair.

58  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Should I open separate shops or just one big shop? on: April 03, 2009 06:41:12 AM
Ok, I have so many ideas of things I want to do, so I made a list then separated the by category (they are all bath and beauty items) so it's like Bath, Makeup, Hair. I plan to launch the Bath line this winter, then bring the makeup in the spring and the hair in the summer.  What I'm wondering is if I should make three different etsy accounts, or should I make one big shop with different categories?  I'll also eliminate things that don't sell well along the way so my list wont be quite as big as it is now.  Thanks for any advice!

Oooh I like that idea!  I was considering going to cosmetology school myself...I wonder if there would be any legal things to consider?
60  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Home Spa Party? on: March 29, 2009 04:05:19 AM
I am in the process of creating my own bath and beauty line and was thinking of throwing a home spa party as a kind of "grand opening" once I'm ready to start selling.  I thought this would be a good way to kind of get word out about my products. I'm planning on selling lip balms, sugar/salt scrubs, cuticle oil, bath salts, tub teas, bath melts, bath bombs, possibly trying out some masks, body butters, and want to eventually venture into the world of mineral makeup but don't think I'd have that for my grand opening...or do you think that might be a big draw?

My SIL is going to school for cosmetology and I was considering paying her a little bit to come do pedis/manis and the like. 

 My questions are has anyone done anything like this before?  if so, were you successful?  What types of things did you offer?
