1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Weirdest Etsy Accessories Ever on: January 28, 2014 07:05:57 AM
I actually really like most of that stuff...except the fetus necklace, the breast milk necklace and the moose poop necklace.  This writer was kind of mean and snarky.  They should know anything on Etsy is going to be very unique and out of the ordinary...I don't see that article as very complimentary to any of the sellers whose item was featured.

I'm interested too if this offer is still open.  Let me know and I'll fill out the questionnaire Smiley
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Ipad book case .....AKA My nightmare for the last 24 hrs... on: September 12, 2012 07:41:15 PM
You did a great job!  I really like how you were able to leave the pages in and you left the first page in.  That first page is a really unique touch!

I make these book cases for my Nook Tablet, and I know how you feel.  They ARE hard and very time consuming. Measuring the tablet and then adjusting it to the device once the pocket is sewn on (I sew pockets into the fabric lining) is a PIA!  Half the time it doesn't even come out right and I have to add some trim to cover up the bad cutouts. 

When I first got my Nook, I was hoping to make these book cases and sell them in my Etsy shop.  Feh!  No thanks Smiley They're great to make every so often but not all the time.

Sounds like fun!! I'll be back around the end of the sign up period...I'm doing the Sweat Shoppe Swap at the moment.

Looks great to me!! Can't wait!! 

I sell the rice heating pads in my Etsy shop, and yeah, I can agree too that it costs a bit to ship rice heating pads...it depends on how big they are, but you could probably squeeze them into the small flat rate Priority Mail boxes if you're not able to find a cheaper Parcel Post option.  This would be a great option especially for sending to US addresses..or try the bubble envelopes from the USPS too.  They're both around $5 to send.
6  New York / New York: West / Re: Is anyone out there in Buffalo? on: November 14, 2011 06:23:40 AM
I'm in North Tonawanda.  I was going to say we should set up a group for Craftster members who live in the Western New York area, but I just went ahead and did it anyways.  Join my brand new Craftsters in Buffalo group here:


We'll talk about anything crafty-related--what we're working on now, biz tips and shows (for those interested), technique advice...etc Smiley  I'm also hoping to have a crafty meet up at some point.

Here are the Happy Donuts!  They are stuffed with fiberfill and have large keyrings so they can be attached to anything you want!  The donuts are a bit big for a keychain.  They measure approximately 5" (12.5 cm) across by 4.75" (12 cm) tall.

You did a great job!  Those desks where the chair is attached to the desk are classic, and even I would love to have one around my house for decoration.  I know my 1 year old son would probably adore it too.  Those desks are timeless. 

I really hate seeing furniture getting thrown out.  I have that annoying rescue tendency too (I live in a pretty wasteful neighborhood and trust me, it does get annoying after a while to see all the stuff that's being thrown out), and I redo tables I find on the curb.  So many people just don't get that furniture can have a whole new life with a little cleaning and a couple coats of paint.

That looks so awesome!!  Will you adopt me?  Smiley  I love all the details, and the pillow sits very well, which I know is hard to do when you're making a cheeseburger sculpture. 

I LOVE cheeseburgers.  I have a mini-obsession with them.  I made a giant cheeseburger pillow for my husband on one of our anniversaries, plus I just finished refinishing a round table to look like a giant cheeseburger. 

This is absolutely amazing.  I hit This Rocks!

I highly second the notion of the letters being able to help kids learn about letters.  My 17 month old son LOVES his bathtub letters and loves when I tell him what each letter is.  You could have a good business going with those letters if you could find a way to ship them economically.  You could do the letters in all sorts of awesome patterns and fabrics.
