1  Georgia / Georgia: Central / anyone really good with hemming? on: July 07, 2004 06:20:57 AM
I'd like to learn how to hem my own pants. I'm looking for a fellow crafter in the atlanta area who can teach me how to do it right.  I know it's a pretty straightforward process and more of a lifeskill than a craft perhaps, but I figured if anyone would know how to do a professional-looking job, crafters would. Any help?

3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Old CDs / AOL CDs / AOL CD Cases on: April 16, 2004 08:21:33 AM
Who has ideas for something functional to make out of old cd jewel cases? I've read through the ideas kickin' around, from picture frame to eyeshadow case, but I'm looking to think bigger and more useful.

I have a ton. Here's what I plan to do so far: I stripped out the middles and snapped them back to gether so I am just left with clear cases.  I think I will epoxy 12 of them together with an extra one along the side lengthways to make glassblock/privacy glass-like bricks out of them. Anyone have any ideas for what to do with the bricks?

just wait! in a few months i'll be opening up a crafting supplies shop in Atlanta called Makeshift, and we will be stocked to the gills with good and reasonably priced vintage magazines and books, along with other stuff for crafting. More info to follow!

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re:Paypal. yay or nay? on: February 04, 2004 06:20:05 PM
With paypal you can also accept credit cards, you know. It's the only payment processor in its class.  Part of the advantage(which is huge) is that there's no monthly fee, unlike the other payment processors. And the per-transaction fee is reasonable for the service they are providing. You can decrease their fees even more by using a PayPal Credit card that pulls money right out of your business paypal acct. like a debit card. it's neat.

If you know how to implement it, it's really not bad.  All of my domestic sales come through paypal as a processor, and i also offer 2checkout.com for international, since paypal doesn't handle non-us bank accounts quite as smoothly. I've never had a complaint, I've even handled some wholesale and custom stuff through it.
7  Georgia / Georgia: Central / Re:Boston to Atlanta? on: February 04, 2004 07:49:39 AM
funny, i am in a similar boat. will probably be moving from boston to atlanta fairly soon.

i've been there about half a dozen times and am a huge fan of the city.  it's much more 'neighborhoody' than boston and you get much more for your money as far as housing goes. and there are many more good cheap and mid-range restaurants. in boston, it seems like the only good restaurants are the high end ones.

what kind of work will you be looking for?

9  Georgia / Georgia: Central / Re:Atlanta- Metro Area on: February 03, 2004 01:10:32 PM
anyone know of any crafting supplies stores in the area other than the art supply stores (flax, pearl) and the big chains - michaels, ac moore, etc?

thanks for the tips and stories everyone..definitely inspiring.  if anyone is willing to share some of their financial info - i.e. what is/was their monthly burden and how much they had to sell to meet it, that would be most helpful, although i know it really depends on where you are and the space itself. if that's too private to share, maybe you could email me?
