Thank you everyone! Cheesy
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From Junk to Jewelry! =) on: July 23, 2010 09:46:45 AM
So I made some new necklaces and earrings because I was in a crafty mood, and I like how they turned out so much. I made them mostly from recycled pieces from old necklaces, watches, and bracelets I had lying around as well as from friends. I did use a few store-bought charms but overall everything is at least half, if not more, made from recycled parts. Please tell me what you think! Do you like them? Hate them? Think they're overdone? Thanks for looking! =)

13  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Super Mario Bros. Swap Gallery! on: May 10, 2010 11:31:59 AM
This gallery looks AMAZING so far! And I'm quite excited to add to it because my incredible partner Candase (crazycandy999) sent me the best stuff! My brother is a major fan of anything Nintendo and wanted at least half the stuff she gave me. My dad was pretty interested in the gummies...which didn't make it long enough to the final group picture....

Candase made this awesome stuffed mushroom, which my brother said would make a great pin cushion:

Then the king of all awesome, jaw-dropping jewelry:

My brother tried to take this because he thought it was so awesome (who can blame him?). Next, a zipper pouch for my extra whatnots, which will be proudly taken and displayed at my school's gaming group to inspire envy and jealousy Grin

It has such a cute bob-omb!! And finally, the amazing kick-butt hanging wall organizer she made me to go with my new craft room! No action shot because i have to buy a rod to hang it from the wall, so my brother was coerced volunteered to hold the work of art up for me:

Close ups!:

And the group shot (minus the aforementioned gummies):

Thanks so much, Candase! This was a wonderful swap experience and I absolutely adore everything you sent to me! I hope you like your goods just as much. Cheesy

I'm going to have to find a much bigger box to fit my stuff in because I don't want anything to get mushed or broken. I may just ship the glass items separately just so I know for sure they don't break because I can't fit everything into the box I have. *Sigh* I'm done with exception to the letter.

Thank you linda0989 and CraftyChef for your honest replies. They were extremely helpful (hard to listen to with a smile, but exactly what needed to be said) and I will do my best to improve using your suggestions and critiques. I have a photo shoot this weekend with a model who will hopefully improve the appeal of my jewelry and scarves, etc. I will update my photos as soon as possible.
I'm slowly updating my descriptions so they're easier to read and the information comes across more smoothly. I also edited my bio a bit, getting rid of those three problematic paragraphs. I'll fix more of it when I figure out how to make it more appealing. I was actually writing it using Etsy's article on "Tip for Writing an Engaging Profile" I think it was called. Everything I wrote was because of the article's suggestions, but I completely see how some of that stuff isn't necessary.

Thank you both again!! =)

I really do NOT want to go back to school tomorrow. T.T I'm done with pretty much everything but the extras. I keep hovering around my items thinking I can improve them somehow. My confidence levels suck lol. I'm worried about one item (technically 2) because they're glass and I've never shipped glass before. Any suggestions anyone?

Everybody's avatar has changed... including mine... is this some kind of bad April Fool's joke?

That's what I thought, too. I sent a message asking because I was freaking out, thinking someone hacked into my account or something. Then realized, "Hey, April Fool's Day!!" but I sent the message anyway lol. The icons keep changing, actually. Earlier today I had a gingerbread man, and now I have pickles with eyes.
20  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Constructive Criticism Please? on: April 01, 2010 10:00:44 AM
I hope this doesn't scare anybody off, but I was hoping someone (or several someones) could answer the following questions (and I'd return the favor!) about my shop. I just need some help because I'm not satisfied with it and I believe it needs some criticism to get into shape. Please and thank you? And like I said, I'll definitely answer the same questions or any of your questions about your shop. =)

Link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jarofdreams

1. What is your style or taste? Do any of these items fit that style or taste?
2. What is your favorite item and why?
3. What is your least favorite item and why?
4. If a certain item was something you've been looking for, how much would you pay to get it?
5. Would you prefer to buy a small item and pay little shipping and a large item with no shipping, or a small item with no shipping and a large item with little shipping?
6. Is my banner interesting?
7. How does my photo make you feel? Intimidated? Trusting? Amused?
8. Are the item descriptions informative enough? Convincing enough to make you interested?
9. Do my item photos look professional? Are there any improvements that need to be made such as lighting, positioning of the item, backgrounds, item quality, need of props, etc.?
10. How does my biography make you feel about me and my shop?
11. Do you have any questions or comments for me that don't address the previous questions I've asked?

Thank you everyone!
