21  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re:Paypal. yay or nay? on: February 11, 2004 09:00:00 PM
I use paypal like crazy. I have their debit card (and it offers cash back to offset paypal transaction fees) and I use it for all of my shipping. I try to pay all of my ebay fees out of my paypal account. It really does help me figure out how much I'm making versus how much I'm spending. I'm still small time so it's really great for me.

I agree with amberoomi! As long as you're smart about it you'll be fine. I don't buy from shady overseas sellers on ebay and I only sell to the US, Canada and Europe (and that only depends on what, exactly, I'm selling).

I don't keep very high balances for any period of time. I use it to pay my bills via bill pay, too!

I really love Paypal! It helps me make ends meet!

Oh! I'm very interested! It's located near enough and on a night that works for me. Will it be mostly knitting?

I get this magazine every month and I really like it. I will say it's gotten sort of repetitive (it seems everyone submitting projects is too specifially inspired by the ones that came before them, if that makes any sense) and too many of the found objects were store-bought (at least for a few months).

I also like their Legacy magazine because I love using old photos in collage/paper arts.

I'd be interested in getting crafty with you gals and I'm learning to knit but I'm not that good at it.

Glitter is the message board at www.getcrafty.com.

I love Brini!

Brini is a man! And a tupperware lady.

Brini is inspired by the kitshy early '60s vision of suburban femininity and started as a cable access show in NY.

The first episode was deliciously odd and I'm looking forward to more though I'm not a big fan of the Style Network.

Oh, that's super cute!

My husband and I did that in our last apartment only we had one very long wall and did a single line of them. During the holidays we put up all X-mas LPs! It was fun to change them out when we felt like doing something seasonal/occasional.

I'm originally from Flint! But I live in Rochester Hills.

I am a freelance writer and crafty girl and I'm so excited there is a Michigan forum!

I have a web site: www.isadora-ink.com but I haven't dedicated the time I need to in order to get it off the ground.

There is a cute spinning/knitting shop in Lake Orion for those who were asking.
28  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re:How to organize my craft room? on: December 28, 2003 08:23:09 AM
My office/craft room is a disaster area right now but it was adorable before the holidays! Smiley

I have a long desk (made out of a door we got at Home Depot. If you don't have the skills to make legs you can use two filing cabinets, one on either end. Super sturdy!

Half of my desk is for my computer and the other half is for crafting (under ideal conditions!)

I had two short book cases that used to sit under a window in our old apartment but in this apartment I lined them up next to each other and bought four super cheap and extra long pressed boards from Home Depot. I spray-painted them in crazy colors (I was DYING for some color that day -- I sort of regret it now.) and put them up with brackets above my book shelves.  Doing this created five long shelves that are 12 inches apart and almost a foot deep. I purchased a bunch of plastic shoe-sized boxes and some really fun labels to store goodies. I got them for about $1/each. I stacked them two tall on the shelves (I actually only have one shelf filled with these and would like more). The shelves hold crafts and supplies of all sorts, stuff that is for sale on ebay, some videos and some mementos. I need to re-organize it!

The room itself has a good sized-closet and I FILLED it with plastic containters, some new some old. I spent more money on the containers in there than I did for all the shelves because I wanted some uniformity. I basically bought plastic filing cabinets on sale at K-Mart and combined them with every plastic storage thing I had ever purchased before displacing innumerable things in my bedroom closet and bathroom but I didn't care!

I have pictures of the craft closet somewhere. Once I clean up my office I'll post pictures if anyone would like to see it to get some ideas for their own space.

I'm very happy with it, overall!

Cute stuff!

I made SO MANY tea towels for Xmas that my hands are still sore! I can't believe it! They were a big hit so far.

I made Sublime Stitching stuff for my cool friends and more cutesy traditional stuff (like Santas) for my family. Everyone seemed relatively pleased and it was so easy and the cost was so low! Hee. My favorite kind of nice Christmas gift!
30  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re:Stitch 'n Bitch Projects on: December 26, 2003 07:46:48 AM
I just got this book for Christmas! Yay! I've always wanted to learn how to knit and I seriously.can.not.wait. to get started. I'm going to my LYS today to get some much-needed supplies to start knitting and (hopefully) complete my first scarf. Aww! If only I could show my grandmother. She'd be so proud. Smiley

(And I LOVE Bust! I've been a subscriber for many years.)
