That is such an awesome dress! It looks like a designer's product Smiley And I bet it'd look great in a creative photoshoot. I'd so wear that. You totally pull it off.

Haha Diane  Grin I probably understood your last idea the most! I really can't thank you enough for taking the time to help me. I hope it'll help others too, who are interested in bananas. Yum! I'll show you some pictures when I get it right!

Thanks so much for the help Diane.
Yes, the canes that I'm looking for to make are like these real banana slices http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Detail.aspx?axd=DetailPaging.Generic|1&axs=0|200449111-002%2c200500977-001%2c200176297-002%2c200392230-001%2csb10067655az-001%2csb10068410c-001%2c200462557-001%2c50699774%2c200551372-001%2c200373459-001%2csb10069959an-001%2c200449111-001%2c200388687-001%2c3206589%2csb10068052n-001%2c73400817%2c200373456-001%2c57564169%2c200194918-001%2c3628-000013%2c302688-001%2c200026459-003%2c81598687%2c200497768-001%2c288944-001%2cCA24756%2c72868059%2c200329784-001%2c200194921-001%2c81598681%2c57303647%2c200493867-001%2cAK6269-008%2c262593-005%2cAB5711-002%2c886212-001%2c200444167-001%2c57302367%2c200422743-001%2cskd191119sdc%2c57226730%2c200422473-001%2c878237-001%2c76822317%2c200422209-001%2c967528-001%2c72655817%2c82110919%2c200303642-001%2c200194631-001%2c3003-002926%2c71605877%2c200194633-001%2c82137503%2cAB5998-002%2c71433030%2c72049647%2c71849414%2ceat060%2c79756109|0&id=886212-001 which look like Angie Scarr's canes.

I'm more of a visual person, so I'm having slight difficulties wrapping my head around your tips, but I will get it sooner or later Wink

Much appreciated, Diane. Cheers!

I've been learning to make my own fruity canes lately. I'm feeling ambitious to try making the complex banana cane Smiley Does anyone have any ideas on how to make banana slices?
15  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Getting Noticed by Mags? on: October 27, 2008 08:13:17 PM
Hi, I was just wondering, to all of you crafters/sellers who have gotten reviewed/published by magazines (offline or online): How did you get them to notice you?

Most of the time, do they come to you, approach you if they could publish your items in their magazine?

Or do you email them and send them pictures?

I've seen some online shops that have had dozens and dozens of press releases, mostly from offline magazines like Seventeen Magazine. That's just wow!

Thanks Smiley
16  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Need Your Opinion! on: October 08, 2008 06:08:34 AM
I'm from Malaysia, and I own an online jewelry shop.

I plan to revamp my website with a new brand identity. And in the process, I had an idea to split my website into two, one site for local and neighbouring visitors, another for international visitors (US, Australia, Canada, etc).

The reason being, is so I can set the local currency for the local site, and USD for the international site.
I use Mal's E-Commerce so this currency conversion cannot be done automatically.

However, it is easier for me to ship locally; handling is easier and receiving payment is also easier for me (I don't have to go through Paypal, if I were to withdraw Paypal credit into my card, I'll be charged a heavy fee. So most of the time money sent to my Paypal account stays there and is "not in my hands" if you get what I mean) so I can afford to charge local buyers a price that is slightly lower than the price set in USD in the international site.

Question now is: Would you, as an international customer, be peeved and pissed off at the fact that local buyers get a lower price? Eg. USD10.00 (international price) and USD8.00 (local price).

I for one, feel this situation is a little vague in terms of ethics. I need your opinion, please!

Hi PencilNeck!

Did you say you're hosted at a free server? I'm not sure if I understand. Do you have your own domain, or were you asking about blogspot.com and wordpress.com?

As far as I know, Wordpress is wonderful! I've used both before, and feel that blogger can only go so far. With Wordpress (I have it as a content managing system on my site as well), I can make any layout I want and have Wordpress integrated into it.

You can check out how it looks like on my domain, which is completely powered by Wordpress.

Haha, thanks JuJu!

These might very well be the best cupcakes I have seen! If you wouldn't mind I would love to know how you made the cups! They are SO realistic! I have been having such a hard time getting mine to look anywhere near as good as yours are!

Thanks so much, LunaKitten!
I am running a business on these, and I support protecting trade secrets. I am very sorry about this, but I hope you understand!

I've just recently made these with polymer clay. I tell ya, I loved making them and I love how they turn out even more! The cupcakes measure to approximately 5/8" wide and tall.

Tell me what you think! Wink
