2792  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Finished my new website - opinions appreciated! on: August 01, 2005 06:32:10 AM
I'm NOT a fan of pink, as it's way overused, but I like your site even so. Nice job!

Some of the pages were a tad slow to load, but not so bad that I'd leave the site. If you add more pics to your pages, you might want to consider making some changes in size or volume.

If you want cheap, you have to buy in bulk, and if you buy in bulk, you need space to store cases; I assume you'll need different sizes of bags, hence my use of caseS instead of casE.

Places like Instawares can get you 2000 smallish bags for $15. http://www.instawares.com/White-Plastic-Merchandise-Bag-85-x-11.NMW811.0.7.htm?trackcode=WREFROONMW811

Ditto on the "what" question.
2795  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Is designer fabric copyrighted? on: August 01, 2005 05:29:47 AM
There are a few opinions about it.

Once you buy the fabric, it's yours. It would be unlawful to, say, copy the design of the fabric, or scan it and use multiple pics of it some way, or claim to be a rep of Michael Miller designs. In fact, I would not use or refer to the name Michael Miller in any of your marketing propoganda; plenty of people won't know who the heck he is anyway (I sure didn't).

The designer has basically released the item - in this case fabric - into the world to use. He's put a price on its use by selling it; if he's worried he's not getting enough for his efforts, he can increase his prices. He can't stop you from making bags out of it.

Once you take the product and make something else out of it, then it belongs to you.
2796  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Etsy sales way down? Or is it just me!? on: August 01, 2005 05:14:51 AM
Lots of things slow down in summer. People are spending money on their vacations and the local festivals (some buying crafts, no doubt!) and such.

Didn't Etsy have a marketing/advertising campaign a short time ago, which resulted in excitement and sales? Well, that campaign is over! Time for the next one. It's also up to you to market your site. Having a website doesn't guaranty any sales.

The holidays are coming up - get busy now!
2797  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / In search of an adhesive on: August 01, 2005 04:58:06 AM
I'm looking for an adhesive that will stick to the back of duct tape, which I assume is some sort of vinyl. In any case, there's oil in it, which makes it slick.

Please don't "guess"; E6000 doesn't work, and I've tried many other things. If you've got an answer on this one, or another way you've solved the problem, I welcome your advice!
2798  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: career on: August 01, 2005 04:52:09 AM
Just off the top:

You could always check out your local community education program to find out if you can teach a class. You could provide a class through them, or through a community or neighborhood center. It can be an adult or a kids' class. Moms might look for something fun to do with little Billy or Suzy.

If you're art savvy you might work p/t at a local craft or art supply store.

You might approach daycare centers to see if they would offer a special class, featuring you.

Churches in my area won't offer anything that makes a profit (state law, apparently). Yours might be different.

Approach Red Hat Societies. They're always looking for something fun to do, and they'll pay you.
2799  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Bread Pudding recipe needed on: August 01, 2005 04:42:06 AM
My favorite is to make a basic bread pudding, and bake in some inserted fresh raspberries and white chocolate chips. The mix up some ganache (equal parts of cream and white chocolate melted together) to drizzle over. Nummy!

Drag out the Cambell's Soup, y'all! Creamy, thick sauces, cheddar cheese, little use of herbs and spices (salt and pepper is your spice; parsley and occasionally thyme).
