1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: How to display ___________ on: June 03, 2012 02:41:08 PM
Christmas Ornaments and Wreaths?  I have an fake tree I hang ornaments on - very time consuming - some I put on a tray on my table.   But I still have NO good ideas for wreaths. Anybody?

I wear a size 5 shoe - impossible to find these days in stores in the adult section - never thought to spray paint shoes - great idea.  I have a pair in the closet I don't wear because they're badly marked up but I can't stand to toss them out.  I'll try painting them and see how it goes.

Really love your flowers - the roses and the plum color was wonderful.  I think the color came out beautiful and you certainly should be proud of such a job.  My neighbor has her bridal bouquet in a shadow box along with some other mementos from their wedding - wish I had thought of that at the time we got married 16 yeas ago! 

If you don't mind, I'm going to make a note of your colors and flowers and add it to the notebook I keep for when my daughter and many nieces (10) are planning weddings. 

Congrats on your marriage.

Mom would have loved this idea when we were little!  She got so tired of picking up the tree when she had 3 kids under 5 years old that she finally put the Christmas tree in the playpen where it was safe - LOL - and sad to say it was a family tradition (necessity?) for many years as there were eventually 7 of us kids!.
This really looks great on your walls. 
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Looking for ornament tops - can anyone help? on: September 04, 2011 12:13:17 PM
Does anyone know if it's possible to buy the ornament tops separately?  And if so where?
I've been doing some searching online and so far no luck.
The part I'm looking for is the part that connects the glass ball (or other type of ornament) to the ornament to the hook.
It's usually either silver or gold in color has little clips that go inside the ball and a round wire loop.

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: New here! How do you price craft things you make? on: August 09, 2011 08:15:59 AM
When I was an employee and the boss asked me to go to the store for supplies I did it while I was "on the clock" so I was paid for the time, when I went to events outside of the office I was paid for my time.   It's been my experience in a small company there's usually a big difference between employees and the owner and while the employees get paid for their time or otherwise compensated, the owner doesn't always (my parents owned a small business as did my grandparents and in-laws).  Just a fact of life. 

Sounds like you already have your plan on how you want to figure your costs/wage/amount to charge so there's really no argument.  If you try to account for every single minute and figure it all in, you may just price yourself too high.  But again, everyone has their own system and has to find one that works for them.    Same thing goes for bookkeeping and inventory tracking.

Well, honestly nobody ever paid me for the time it took me to drive to their office and back home at the end of the day.  Wish they did!!  When I do shows I don't figure in the time to load/unload the van and set-up/break-down my space.  That's part of the cost of doing business.   And no I don't account for every minute of going to the store for supplies or making an internet purchase, can't imagine anybody keeps track of their time that carefully.  But while I have paint drying I can make an internet purchase or run to the store, so it all fits in together so long as you don't waste time.   
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Where's the right place to ask about starting a website??? on: August 08, 2011 01:48:43 PM
I'm sure there's a place here on craftster somewhere where I can ask folks who have websites advice, but so far I can't find it, so can anyone tell me if there's a specific place or not???

I want to start a web page/website for my stuff, not just use Esty , can anyone offer advice on where to find a website that doesn't cost an arm and a leg and is not too difficult for the computer less than savy person to use?

Thanks  Judy

I used to carry knitting around with me a lot in college and in high school (I was the only one on the high school band bus who brought her knitting along and that was in the 1980s !!) of course there's always cross stitching - and if you get REALLY desperate you could study or at least open the books in front of you while you knit so maybe you absorb some info that way - you never know
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Crafting on a plane... on: August 08, 2011 01:42:05 PM
What I did was to pack a cross-stitch project and pre-cut a bunch of threads.  I had to leave a threads hanging in the back of my fabric until we got to our hotel and before I even checked I asked for scissors - lol - talk about getting strange looks - but it worked great on the plane.  I also was working on graphing a picture I was going to cross-stitch next and that was pretty portable, too.  As far as knitting needs go, the TSA website (at least at that time) as I remember it said they were a maybe and it was really up to whoever was working security at the time, but I wasn't going to chance having to threw my knitting needles away.
