Go for it! It's not an original idea.... It probably wouldn't be fair to start selling them yourself though, I know I wouldn't like it if anyone did that to me... and I hate to point out that handmade things are too expensive but $75?!?!? and $65 for the tote?!?!? that's one hell of a mark-up for 4 thrift store ties and some basic handbag sewing! Thank God I know how to make stuff!! Smiley

elizwong, nice cards. are they handpainted or printed? and are they your own illustrations? I'd love to have some cards to sell but I always find they take too long to make in order for it to be profitable... I also spend too much money on nice paper and envelopes... Have any suggestions for cheap quick cards...??

Legally... I'd suggest using someone else's computer if they have Photoshop... but there are free version for downloading floating around. Free trials at adobe.com can not be saved or printed (damn) but they're good for playing around with. Have you got Mac or PC datgulnette?

 Huh I am confused by all that... Cheesy  but I gather what you want is to make a colour transparent in order for it to look like sheer fabric, yeah? If you have access to a version of Photoshop then you're in luck. If you are and need any help I'll be happy to explain. If not I don't know what to suggest apart from perhaps paint your illustration with watercolour before you scan it in as it's easier to make it look even and transparent than with coloured pencils. (Make sure you photocopy the original and do some tests so as not to ruin the original though...doh!)

I don't know what's happening to me!! second bead project in 2 days!!! I didn't think I even liked beading...

Thanks for sharing moobaa! Mine are not as professional as yours... I don't even have any proper pliers so they look all wonky. I got a huge grab bag of beads, a big bag of leaf sequins and actually had fun with beads! Smiley

Here they are.

27  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / What is your bestseller? on: August 03, 2004 11:57:30 PM
I've done 2 market days now and I've noticed that what I thought was going to be a hit with the buyers wasn't and what I nearly didn't bring because I didn't like very much was the first to be snapped up...

Obviously it just goes to show that taste is like your bum...divided... but still, some things get popular with the masses.

What is it you sell the most of?

These are my top earners. Felt Purses! This is not a new project so this is not really for commenting on, just to show you what sells...I posted them here when I first joined and had kinda forgot about them but they sell really well!

...anyone else like to share their trade secrets...?  Wink

sorry to be off topic but I feel I should say that spray adhesive should NEVER be used in a non-ventilated area!!! Ideally you should have a special reversed fan thing that sucks all the glue particles to it... but at least wear a mask and/or do it outside. The same said particles that fly around deposit themselves in your loungs and build up thus basically 'suffocating' you. 

Sorry for being so dramatic, but I once heard about someone who died from years of unprotected spray adheseve-ing...
