4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Domain & Redirect question - Opinions needed on: March 14, 2007 10:01:39 AM
so here's my dilema. Do I just print my Etsy address on my labels and business cards or do I get a regular website with a redirect?

Eventually I would like to have my own website shop but i feel that etsy afors me more visibility via their search options. I have a free website through my internet provider. I can use that as an etsy redirect and put off registering a domain name for the time being and save myself the $8

My question is would you be more inclined to go to a website if it said

1) www.courtneymarin.comcast.net
2) www.courtneymarin.com (.biz, .info, etc.)

or would you care at all either way? is the etsy address sufficient?

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Ode to the Mighty Craftster Army Parachute Purse *first sewn purse* on: March 13, 2007 11:11:27 AM
So my hubby has this way of persuading me to go to the Army Surplus store "in search of craft supplies". Funny that it's the only "craft supply" place he'll go to with me  Tongue while we were there the guy at the counter was disassembling a parachute (no joke). I scored this wesome patch and some super super heavy duty parachute snaps. Here is the resulting purse.

I was thinking something utilitarian style, but it's my first sewn purse so what do I know lol. It has a place for my cards, and a messenger style flap that fastens with a button on one side. on the opposite side is a big open pocket that fastens with army green velcro. I am a constant purse rummager and I hate pockets so the open pockets are perfect.

All hail the craftster army Wink

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sweatshirt recon/sewing sampler on: March 07, 2007 06:41:22 PM
So I'm tring to become a little more acquianted with my new sewing machine. I got this men's sweatshirt for $2 at wally world. It was 2 sizes too big and I just thought i'd make it into something while practicing appliqueing and all the nifty embroidery my machine does. Its a take on folk art pictures by Charles Wysoki who's art I just adore. I made my own minding out of ribbon, put in a zipper, cut off the cuffs and tacky elastic bottom and did allthe appliques. Good stepping stone, i learned a lot to say the least lol

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Unconditional swapper feedback on: March 02, 2007 11:01:19 AM
I couldnt find anything relating to feedback for unconditional swappers. I was wondering if there is, or should be a policy regarding feed back. I have been and uncoditional swapper a few times and have never recieved any feedback for succesfully sending and item. I have recieved feedback for being an angel, and in my opinion, unconditional senders almost always eliminate the need for angels.

I'm not just fishing for feedback, but I think there should be some sort of recognition of some sort for those of us swappers that commonly swap and do not expect a swap in return.

what are all of your thoughts on this?
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Kitchy 70's owl evening bag/clutch & skully cuff for my DH *New Stitch??* on: February 23, 2007 05:52:20 PM
The clutch is in the standard awesome 70's colors, green and orange. The owl is hand pieced felt with vintage buttons cut from a reconned coat. The cuff was straight black with a vintage 2 button closure with a crocheted skull aplique. no pattern was used for either item.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Curtains to apron recon for swap * No Peeking Star* on: February 23, 2007 05:46:29 PM
I bought these terrible oh so ugle curtains fromthe 50's or 60's at a little old lady's yard sale. They were still in the original package! I made a second from some kitchen curtains a girlfriend had left over. No pattern used.

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Perpetual dry erase Calendar *IMG PHAT* No Peeking Snowyangel!! on: February 23, 2007 05:38:39 PM
So I made this for a craftster pal o mines that I just love to death!!!  Cheesy  We do lots of personal swaps and I was trying to come up with something she could use throughout the year, and for many years to come.

I started with just a blank scrapbooking calendar that i got ON SALE FOR $1!!!!! I used self adhesive laminating sheets to cover where the days and dates go to make them dry erasable  Grin. Each holiday is on a 2 sided chipboard piece that i recycled from some christmas boxes. Those are coated with clear acrylic and stick to the laminated calendar sections with poster putty. Each month had matted photo spaces and related paper patterns. This year she can fill it up and enjoy it year after year!!! I also found some super awesome magnetic dry erase markers in all different colors complete with little erasers on the top of each one!! how awesome is that??
