1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Help! Halloween 'Freaky Fundraiser' party decorations ideas on: October 05, 2005 03:48:48 PM
I work for a rape crisis center and we are planning a "Freaky Fundraiser" which will take place on a cruise boat that will be docked downtown....it is designed to be a personal safety education/awareness event for kids but there will also be stuff for adults to do as well, games, costume contest. I am in charge of decorations and we have tried to get donations and for people from stage design/art centers to help us with no luck....we always have trouble getting donations and help from the community. So, I am wondering if anyone has any crafty ideas on decorations that are CHEAP (read: hopefully free) that might work for the boat...we were thinking haystacks....and creepy haunted looking stuff. Any ideas?
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / What are the differences between these three techniques? on: September 25, 2005 09:05:51 AM
Okay, this may be a naive question, but I don't know much about silk screening, stenciling. or iron-on transfers, mostly through what I have read here. I would like to start making some t-shirts to wear and to sell and I am having a hard time figuring out what route to take....are there benefits to one method or another? Thanks for any input you can provide....
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Have no clue what I am doing on: September 05, 2005 03:17:58 PM
Hi clothing craftsters, I am wondering if you can give me some advice. I don't sew...although my mother has some skills in this area and I have this dress that I want to transform.

I want to make it more of an empire waist dress and strapless....kind of like this:


It seems like it would not be difficult, however, as I mentioned I have no clue and can't sew. So, before I enlist her help I thought I would see if you all think it would work. Thanks!

Here's one of my newest creations.....what do you all think? It didn't sell at the show this past weekend but I got a bunch of nice comments on it. Also a lot of people asking if I drank all of that wine (no, did not  Wink ) It is really huge and hard to lug around. I am thinking this will sell closer to the holidays, perhaps a good gift for someone who likes wine....I will probably make more for gifts as well.

Here is my newest creation....what do you all think? It is getting mixed reviews here in the household so I really want some other feedback!

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Difference between crafts and art on: August 16, 2005 03:34:57 AM
What are your thoughts on what makes something a "craft" versus "art"?  I make wreaths, and people tell me that it is "art" but I just can't bring myself to call it that. And, I hesitate to apply to "art" shows as I think my stuff does not fit this criteria. Does anyone have a good idea on what makes something art versus craft?
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How did you get started? on: August 15, 2005 01:37:58 PM
For the veteran crafters, how did you get started with your crafting business? I am wondering if most people get start up loans or just use their own money from a full-time job? Just curious...I am trying to just put the money from my sales into obtaining more supplies and so on, but it never seems like enough to really get a good inventory going. Just curious how others have found success with funding their business.

I made these a while ago, they are my second attempt...I sold the first ones....just used topiary forms, put them (glued them in) terracotta pots, and glued on shells and moss. 

Thank you nikki9door for encouraging me to figure out how to put pictures on these posts finally!
