Yeah... "Ranking computed with secret recipe of feedback, sales, favorites, shop activity, herbs and spices.  Updated daily."

Now if we can just get ahold of some of those herbs...

mmm, maybe cilantro?
awww, thanks for this thread, lady!  i was totally shocked and didn't almost recognize my avatar the first time i saw my shop on the list!
i'm trying to stay up there by posting new things a few times a week, but life's pretty hectic these days! 
thanks for the support! i heart craftster.

ps - just a hint to shop-keepers - sweets is probably the best customer a gal could ever want.

Ohh!  I like the cookie cutouts!!  Smiley

I made a spoon holder... lol... ours is ugly & I never want to leave it sit out, so I used it as a mold & baked it with a layer o' beads.  It's not very exciting - I'll spare ya the photos for once!

Hey sweets have you received your package yet?

Nope!  I'm hoping for today.  Smiley  The last one came pretty quick, so I think/hope/think/hope today's the day.  Smiley

thanks, sweets4ever! I'm so glad those earrings are going to a good home!
catpants, what kinds of problems are you having with your shrinky dinks? Maybe your oven is at the wrong temperature or you're baking them on something sticky? I've got a few shrinky things and as long as you don't expect twin items to turn out looking EXACTLY the same shape it's not too bad Smiley

i'm having trouble with the ink staying put.  the first time, i didn't sand the shrinky dink paper and after i baked it the ink smeared off.  this time i sanded the paper in a crosshatch pattern (horizontally and vertically) and the ink bled before i even baked it!  i don't know what i'm doing wrong  Undecided

What grade sandpaper are ya using?  I think it might be too rough... try to use a very finest you can, so that it makes the paper rough, but doesn't actually leave any lines or crosshatch pattern at all.  Ya want it to just be a nice, even rough-y surface.  Smiley

i bought some sandpaper made by the same company as the shrinky dink paper... so it was actually meant for sanding shrinky dinks.

LOL.  Well, geez.  Um... I guess the shrinky dink gods just weren't with ya that day Sad

Yes, that is my youngest and only girl.

I wanted to make a sunflower for a friend, but I do not have enough yellow beads. Time to go get some more. Yay.

Ohh.. a sunflower would be pretty!  I'll add that to my list of ideas!!  Seems like I keep thinking of more & more stuff to make.

Thanks icats!

I didn't see the show, but I believe it was the HGTV special that's linked somewhere in one of the threads.
