1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Necklace Chain Alternatives? on: November 24, 2013 01:29:09 PM
I'm kinda pumping out a lot of necklaces lately, usually I buy a spool at Michael's, 12yds at 9.99, with a 50% off coupon, so 5 bucks.  But 12 yards isn't very much, i like longer necklaces.

Aside from ribbon, does anyone have any ideas as an alternative to necklace chain?

Just curious and thanks in advance!
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Does anyone use Store Envy? on: October 07, 2013 05:18:09 PM
I know that Etsy is great, because everyone knows about it, and checks it, and searches on there, and loves it.

But I just came across Store Envy, checking it out now, does anyone have advice, opinions, do's or don'ts for this place?

I think i'm just excited to try something new.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Finally made something with my resin pendants on: October 04, 2013 12:30:50 AM
I only had about 200 pendants just chillin' in my "craft corner".  I figured, stop making 'em, and do something with them!

SO here's what I made.

I think they came out really cool, I just wish I had more gold chain, i only had one left.  :/

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / DIY Silicone Mold with Cornstarch - Questions on: September 09, 2013 06:06:33 PM
Has anyone ever tried this?? I bought silicone, corn starch and baby oil today to make some molds.  But the molds don't seem as "siliconey" or bouncy as they do in the tutorial videos I watched on youtube.  And of course in those videos they don't say the amount to use of either ingredient, maybe my portions are off.  But it feels more like a dry crumbly clay, so I added more silicone and then it was too sticky.  If anyone has tips or tricks, pleassssse let me know! 

Also included: a pic of the ingredients I bought, and a couple molds i'm working on.

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Merkin wearing Rat on: August 20, 2013 05:26:14 PM
I have a friend who loves rats and we thought merkins were hilarious.

Two things though. I had no idea what a "merkin" was.

Merkin: A pubic wig. Merkins were originally worn by prostitutes after shaving their genitalia, and are now used as decorative items, erotic devices, or in films, by both men and women

Now that is out of the way, I also never painted with water colors before. I think it came out pretty good!  I traced first, so that helped tons.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I've finally found my favorite craft on: July 26, 2013 06:11:20 PM

I'm new to resin, so if the topic is old or played I apologize ahead of time.

Holy crap, its so fun and easy.  What does everyone else think about resin?  Tips, tricks, problems? Hates, loves?

Its like christmas morning every time my pendants are ready to pop outta the molds. Lol...

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Food safe glass sealer on: April 23, 2013 01:49:37 AM
I was trying to search for this, and I've seen a lot of different information.  Hopefully this wasn't posted/asked recently.

I'm decoupaging some clear glass plates, and the images and glue will be on the back side, But I would like the plates to be able to be used for all occasions.  I know if the glue is on the back side it is most likely fine to be eaten off of, but does anyone have any recommendations for which sealer is works the best and will stay sealed after numerous washes. Obviously just a hand wash.

Any information or tips/tricks would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance!
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / New Website/Blog/My hub on: April 23, 2013 01:37:58 AM
I finally finished editing my website, to get it looking the way I want.  And my content is a little slim pickin's right now, Ive been very busy. But I was curious what everyone thought, I would love constructive criticism.

Some tutorials I have lined up: t-shirt dress for plus size ladies. decoupage plates. stamping/diy screen printing etc.

Most of which have been done, but I like to get my ideas out there.

My etsy page is probably a bit of a mess right now, just ignore that.  eek.
