15481  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's Your etsy Shop Doing? on: June 28, 2006 01:07:12 PM
Hi I'm new here and I just set up an etsy shop.  Any feedback would be appreciated!

We've been expecting you!! Smiley  (*laugh* that makes us sound like a cult)

I'll check your stuff out right now.  If you're a friend of Lusterbunny's, your an auto-favorite of mine.  Smiley

I LOVE that little container!  Hmmmmm maybe Mr. Bead Melter will melt me one.......   Wink

I dunno.  I think it might be below his scope of knowledge.  He's prolly melting beaded sheets to build you a stained glass greenhouse or something crazy, right now!

How has the spoon rest held up? I know the top of my stove heats up especially if the oven is on, and I'd be worried about the spoon rest melting.

It's goooood  Smiley  I've never had it on the stove when I'm using it... for some reason, I always put it the right of the stove, on the counter.  Maybe because I'm right-handed?

Ok do i live in the worlds most un crafty place in the world ,, but iam sorry ive never seen those tins anywhere> where the heck did you find them? do they have glass ? plastic? over the lid?

Hehehe, that's funny!  Nah, you don't.  Smiley  I buy them on the internet & it looks like they are actually located in Gettysburg, PA.  Here's the site... http://www.clayalley.com/tins.htm  Minimum orders are $10, before shipping, but they have a ton of other stuff ya can stock up on if ya wanted.  Smiley

They have plastic in the lid & it's some crazy hard plastic that didn't melt at all in the oven!  I just flipped the lid over, put enough beads to fill it flat with one layer & baked it.  Wa-la!

i really want to get back into melting beads but the fumes are too much for all of us.

Plus, when my family cooks things, the fumes still linger.  I'm going to have to hold off on this project for a while. Drat!

But, I can keep my love of melting beads alive with seeing all the neat things you're coming up with!

Aw Sad  That sucks, but if the fumes bother ya at all...it's totally not worth it!  Smiley  If ya want something melted, I'd be more than happy to make & send ya something...anything anytime.  Smiley

I love the stained glass effect top of the box. I have a mass amounts of those tiny boxes with clear lids, maybe this might give me the kick in the pants I need to try the melted bead craze.

By the way, hows that "Scream" coming along?  Wink

*scream*  Ya know, I haven't even started a Scream one yet!  I thought about it, then I went through bead colors & didn't want to use all the brown/gold sparkle beads I have now, for the bridge.  I'm hunting for some bead deals... 'cause I need more colors.  Smiley

I like the colored lid!  Nice idea!

Bead melting is so addictive.   Grin

Thanks! Smiley  It was the easiest thing yet.  And YES, it's so addictive!  Probably because it is so easy.

wow you've turned melting beads into art. i love it.. esp the tree!

Aw, thank you!  That's such a nice compliment!

SoonFamo-Artiste... get melting!   Grin

Oh, wow!  I had a coworker who got married there.  Her colors were red & black...and against all of the foliage and Chihuly it was just gorgeous.  I can't wait for November because I wanna see your photos... he he!  Smiley

lol, no I already got married, this past November. A link to my pics is already in this thread, here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=53280.msg803425#msg803425
We also had a red theme, it worked really well with the greenery

OH!!  For some reason my eyes skipped over that & read as "I'm getting married there in November..."

Woot!  Off to look at yours... Thanks!   Grin

Sorry if any of ya are cross-posted to any of the other bead threads.. Smiley  This will probably be redundant if so!  Here's a few more melted goodies... https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16743679.0

We're gonna need a melted bead board, lol!

I am a fan of yours and just drooled on my computer over those coasters! (and I am not even a coaster person!!)

I am going to have to hook up my old stove in the garage, open all the windows and doors and take a stab at this!!  You guys are having WAY too much fun not to join in  Cheesy

Ahh.. thanks!!  Smiley  I like the coasters!  We have coasters... but the room they are in we hardly ever even go in.  LOL, so I guess it's more of decoration than anything.

Did you make anything yet?  I wanna see!

Here are a few more misc. things... a little tin, a spoon holder & a suncatcher:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16743679.0
