1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: How to display wine glass markers on: February 14, 2013 12:09:10 PM
I have put a lot of time and energy into creating (themed) wine glass markers. (the little hoop you put at the bottom of your glass so after you've had a few, you can still tell which is your glass Wink )   

Unfortunately, I have not had any luck in selling them and that is sad because I thought the idea was wonderful!  Currently, I have 4 holes punched into the bottom of a note card and a cute little ribbon at the top.  I thought it was cute, however, people are not really even looking at them at the shows. I have a TON of these markers, so laying them out on a table is not a viable option. 

I've attached a pic of the display now.  Please help! Smiley
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing Newbie! :) on: August 08, 2012 05:56:16 AM
I just purchased my first sewing machine this week and it should arrive today or tomorrow.  i have a lovely best friend/crafting mentor who has helped me get a general idea of a machine and how it operates, as well as getting me some supplies that I will need to get started.

My question is: what is a good beginner project?

4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's your Etsy shop doing? 2011 on: June 20, 2012 07:02:00 AM
I have had trouble getting my Etsy shop going as well.  I had several jewelry pieces already created for a craft show and they didn't sell, so I thought that I would put them on the internet.  I had them on Etsy for a few months and they didn't move, so I decided to go with Facebook.  That wasn't working either so I tried Pinterest and yarsellr, much to no avail.  Recently, I became overwhelmed and frustrated that my only buyer was my mom, so I started creating my own website. I purchased it from godaddy.com and have been working every chance I get to try and get it up and running. I know a major issue is trying to get a good pic of my jewelry.  Here's hoping the website is a hit!
5  COOKING / Dessert / Boba Fett Cake on: June 03, 2012 08:17:06 AM
I am going to try and replicate Boba Fett's helmet into a cake for my boyfriend for his birthday in a few weeks. I am really excited about this and I want it to turn out well, but I have never made a fancy cake before.  I am thinking of using a lemon cake (his favorite) and using a fondant type icing.  My issue is that there are so many details in his helmet, it seems I would end up with a lot of extra icing that I wouldn't use.

My main concerns and where I am looking for some guidance:
1. How to get the army green color and
2. The silver colors are random, do they make a spray icing (I'm think icing in a spray can like paint?)
3. Any idea on making the little antenna thing?  I might end up just using some plastic pieces for that. 

6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Making Fondant Cakes on: May 27, 2012 04:13:56 PM
I had this great idea to get my bf a cake in the shape of his favorite Star Wars character for this birthday next week, but the cheapest I've found is $56 to feed around 6-8 people. That's ridiculous for a cake. I was looking for ways to make fondant frosting. Any ideas?

I have just started planning a trip to London, so naturally, I was crazy excited when I seen this post!  Those pictures are AMAZING!!!! I have noticed that most of the pics I see of London landmarks are the same pictures, maybe just a different day. These are spectualar.
