3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Freezer Paper Stenciling on: January 23, 2008 01:30:46 PM
I have only stenciled a few things over the last couple of years and each time I used card stock to make my stencils. This may have been posted already but what exactly is freezer paper stenciling? What all is involved with making these types of stencils. Any information about this would be appreciated.
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / New choker necklaces! Image heavy. on: January 06, 2008 02:23:54 PM
I recently started making beaded jewelry and decided to post some of my latest creations. I usually make hemp necklaces and other woven types of jewelry. So this is something that I've been practicing for the last few months and I finally think I've got the hang of using the crimp beads and tools for tying off the ends of the necklaces.

I'm obsessed with Firemountain Gems. I got some of my supplies from them. They have a great selection to choose from and you can really create some unique looking pieces. Thanks for taking a look!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Earrings galore! on: October 16, 2005 06:34:55 PM
Ok, this is the first time I have ever attempted making earrings. I think they turned out rather well. So here are the three pair I made. Let me know what you guys think.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / simple but cute hemp chokers!! on: September 27, 2005 05:12:15 PM
Ok, so this isn't the hardest thing really to make. But it does take awhile and get tedious at times.

This one took awhile because each of the beads had holes that were too small to thread the hemp through so I have this nifty little tool I found at Wal-Mart called a Bead Reamer.. And it works great at making the holes bigger in nearly every type of bead. The only problem is that it is time consuming and can wear your hands out. The charm I made using shrinkie dinks.

This one is one of my favorites. I made myself one with pink beads like this before. Again I had to use the Bead Reaming tool to make the holes bigger.

This one is simple but really cute. I just alternated the strands to weave the different colors. And just used small pony beads.

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Etsy.com on: September 01, 2005 11:26:09 PM
I've kept hearing about this website for awhile now and after reading some posts on here I decided to check it out for myself. I've been selling the necklaces I make on Ebay for about 7 or 8 months now. I've done pretty well. The only problems that I seem to run into is that people are often looking for a bargain on Ebay and most of the people posting the kind of stuff I make (hemp jewerly mostly) is often not of the best quality and they will sell it in bulk.

So I set out to look at Etsy.com and see for myself. And I created a store. I was really convinced to join because of everything I read on there. AND right now until November 1st, all the listings are FREE. So you might want to check that out. But mainly my reason for joining is because I put so much time into these necklaces that I make. It can take me at least 30 minutes or more depending on what kind of beads I use and what not. I was tired of having to charge less for them just to make some money off of them.

I think that this website is a GREAT idea and hopefully my store will be profitable for me. Just wanted to share this for anyone wanting or considering creating a store with either Ebay or Etsy.

9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Woodstock Shirt on: January 15, 2005 09:51:04 PM

This is the website I used to find my stencil. I thought I would find one that someone already made so I could practice on making a shirt. So I used this stencil....

The test shirt was an older shirt that I don't wear much and I think it turned out pretty good. What do you guys think?

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Metallic seed bead bracelet.... on: January 11, 2005 03:37:44 PM
I had the day off today and it was yucky and rainy outside. I decided to sit around all day and make more jewelry. I made this bracelet today. I think it turned out very well. I haven't made one like this in years and years. Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure.
