1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies on: August 14, 2009 01:32:25 PM
I love love love bacon chocolate chip cookies!  When I make them, I sprinkle the bacon liberally with brown sugar and bake it in the oven first.  It gets all brown sugary candied and is delicious on its own.  So happy to see the bacon + chocolate love!  I need to make more!

I think the vinyl you're looking for is called Zodiac.  I get it from www.garysupholstery.com.  It's $24 a yard there...the cheapest I've found online.  They'll send out free samples to you too so you can check out the colors before you buy.  It is so beautiful!!
Sometimes if you're really lucky you can find some on ebay.  You might want to search for Naugahyde, and sometimes you can find it in the auto section--people sometimes call it 'flake'--I think because it's glitter.  It's popular for auto restoration.
Zodiac is really thick and sturdy, and kind of a pain to sew!  I use a rolling foot and have to really pull at some of the colors because whatever they use to make it so shiny is a lot stickier than regular old vinyl.  But it's worth the extra effort because it is just so pretty!
Hope this helps!
From one glitter vinyl freak to another....

Wow!  I'm in Flagstaff too!  I'll have to look up the classes at CCC!  Thanks!  I've been wondering if there was a SnB up here--I've been checking the bulletin at New Frontiers because I figured that would be a likely place for a post about one.  Let me know if you get one set up--I'd love to join!!
9  Arizona / Arizona: South / crafty classes in AZ?? on: March 31, 2004 10:27:14 AM
Hey there all you AZ craftsters...if there are any of you out there!!  I live in northern AZ, and I'm looking for some fun evening crafty classes/events/groups to attend, any one know of any good ones?  I know there are a some jewelery making classes in Sedona, but other than that I haven't been able to find anything else.  I'm looking in anywhere near Flagstaff/Sedona/Prescott for pretty much anything crafty.  Any suggestions??
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re:Selling crafts on e-bay... on: March 29, 2004 03:11:07 PM
We've had pretty good luck with ebay, and it seems to be building over time.  We post our shirts, which we also sell on our website.  I've found that doing a featured listing, if you don't mind the fee, is a great tool.  We only do that if we're listing a bunch of tees, that way we kind of make up for the listing cost of the one featured auction.  The featured listing helps drive traffic to our other shirts.
One of the bad things about ebay is that if people see a low starting bid, and happen to be lucky enough to get your item for a low price, they might be less inclined to buy from your website for your preferred retail price.  We get a lot of emails that say 'hey, I got a shirt on ebay for $6 and want another one for the same price'.  Good for the bargain hunters, bad for us!!
On the good side, we have gotten wholesale inquiries from people who see the auctions.
So I'd say it's mostly about your keywords, description, and taking a few chances now and then--like plopping down $20 for the featured auctions occasionally, and having a great item!  But one word of caution--using brand names in your title like "prada-esque purse" can get you busted for key word spamming and they can yank your auction.  They go over all that stuff in the rules section...
Good Luck!
