Cool! I'd love to do web design for the two of you Smiley Sorry about the links!
12  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Free web design for a crafty shop or blog on: May 18, 2009 01:09:02 PM
Hi, I don't know if this is allowed or even in the right place, sorry mods!

I'm a web designer and I'm trying to build up my design portfolio with examples of different types of websites - and as I'm a crafter I'd love to concentrate on crafty blogs and shops, so I'd like to help one crafter set up or redesign a shop, and help another set up or redesign a blog Smiley

 Here are some examples of my design work.

First come, first served!
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Prototype Comfy Bag with owlies on: May 17, 2009 02:47:20 PM
The pattern for this bag was based on a bag I used to love before it started falling apart. It is big enough to fit in a couple of paperbacks, small enough to be easy to carry and has two elasticated pockets on the sides which are the perfect size for my phone and my bubble mixture.

The bag's fully lined and has a long shoulder strap for carrying.The fabric is from an old pillowcase - it's really soft and lovely to the touch, but obviously it's the least durable thing ever. I think for Comfy Bag version 2.0 I might use pillowcase fabric for the lining and something more sensible for the outsides. This was partly sewn by hand, which is pretty messy given my hand-stitching skills - fortunately my mum's fixed my sewing machine for me now! So that should improve. I'm also going to make the strap wider to make it easier to carry.

I might post a tute when I've fine-tuned the design, if anyone's interested?

There's more backstory about the bag on my blog Smiley
14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Edit my Photos swap? on: May 14, 2009 05:41:49 AM
I'd be very up for this! To add to the free alternatives to photoshop people have suggested, The Gimp is a really powerful image editor, as is Inkscape if you want to use vector graphics for your editing!

This sounds exciting! Smiley
15  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Spinach and Chocolate Brownies! on: April 28, 2009 05:31:07 AM
My mother never attempted to hide vegetables in my food as a child, for which I am eternally grateful. However, as an adult who prefers sweeties to her greens, Ive had to fall back on using evil parent-tactics on myself. The result is surprisingly delicious, not to mention super healthy. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you:

Spinach and Chocolate Brownies!

I brought them into work today - not only did they not guess they were vegan, not a single person could tell they contained spinach!

I've put the recipe on my blog - The Beth Project, I strongly suggest you try making them, they're so nice and so virtuous!

What do you think?  Smiley

The first one would make a really cool lampshade! You had to try to argue FOR intelligent design in a SCIENCE class? Haha, how weird. I totally love the idea of making a model based on a virus, awesome!

Did you keep the cushions in order to build a fort?

If not, you should have done. AWESOME FABRIC.
