131  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Kitty-O-Lantern Kitten Costume on: January 05, 2011 05:22:56 PM
Awww, how cute! Love Hallowe'en and always trying to come up with some new critter to hang on my wall, but I think this year I might hang this on my two cats (of course, I don't mean stuffing them into the same costume at the same time Wink )

A really cute, fun idea!

WOW! I am going to try this for myself. What a really good idea! Ear cuffs went out of mainstream fashion years ago and its so hard to find ones that don't look cheap or nasty. It has never occurred to me to actually make one. I adore this. Right down to the stones and colours used. Fantastic idea. Just hope they come out looking as neat and professionally made as yours!

Ohhhhh, I'm hungry now!

I love the simplicity of the ginger bread guy, soooo cute. But I have to say anyone that can make a cupcake look edible when it really isn't has a thumbs up in my books!

134  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Selling knitted toys made from book patterns? on: January 04, 2011 01:57:33 AM
I have had a similar problem. From what I can gather through the laws of copy right and other red tape if the book says no, it means that those items, as seen in the pictures are a no no for selling. However as already pointed out why not just use the books as a starting point. Make one or two up so you get the feel for the project then take it down a whole new route. Put your own personal edge on each one and make them the next knitted icons of the fashion world  Wink

Good morning and a belated Happy New Year to one and all.

Yes new and fresh off the apple cart.

Every year I start with the intention of up keeping some resolution or other, however I have promised myself that this year will be different. Last February I sat at home and thought about leaving my '9 to 5' job. I toyed with opening a market stall selling my home made jewellery and jewellery boxes. But my local markets all said no because they were so full of jewellery sellers. Being an avid craft artist though I shall not let that get me down. I have been looking at setting up a blog, or website and not only sell the likes of jewellery but a hundred and one other little things I love to dabble with. From crocheted critters, seasonal decorations and wedding decorations. A little random perhaps, but people keep saying just sell and create what you love.

A book a recently purchased sent me to my desk top to look up this website. I can say that it is just a maze of inspiration. Whilst I might not yet have my own pages set up, or a company name I am yet happy with (as the old one just doesn't fit anymore), I have spent a number of days running down posts and reading all manner of things here before signing up. I just love this community.

I can't wait to read up on more projects that people have done. Hopefully show a few of mine. Just get this new years and a new line of thinking off to a really good start.

Happy crafting everyone!!!

Kat Shenton
