2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Angelic cards. on: November 22, 2005 10:37:59 PM
So, I belong to an art club at my college. This year we're trying to sell cards (among other things) to raise money for our trip to Chicago in March. I've made 3 so far, but only 2 are really worth showing.

I'm wanting to do maybe 3 more different versions/types/whatever of angels, and then hopefully I can copy them a few times each to make 4 sets of 5 cards each.

What do y'all think so far?

Edited to add: They're not colored in yet. I'm not sure if I want to color them (probably in colored pencils) or just leave them as-is... Any suggestions? Opinions? Advice?
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Spraypainting matt board? on: November 16, 2005 05:04:29 PM
I've got a question. Is it okay to spraypaint.. say, white matt(sp?) board black? I need black for a presentation of my ads, but I only have white. And I am farrr too poor to buy any black stuff. (No lie, I have $17 for food and my caffeine addiction for the next 1.5 weeks.  Roll Eyes )

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Bernat Disco brown yarn on: November 14, 2005 06:26:56 PM
Alright, I've got a proposition for you all. Providing you're interested...

I just received my free 1.75 ounces of Bernat Disco brown yarn (along with free patterns for a bag, pom-pom scarf, and crochet wrap & Mary Maxim catalog.) I've realized that I probably won't ever use it (I'm too busy to even begin to learn to crochet   Cry ) so I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in trading it for maybe a funky-print piece of fabric, or something along those lines.

If I don't get any trade offers, I suppose I'll go ahead and just offer it for free. I don't want it to go to waste.  Undecided

Anyhow, here's a small picture of what it looks like:

Also, a quick note: because I'm an incredibly poor college student living in the United States, I suppose I'll have to restrict it to only people that live in the U.S. Sorry about that, other people...
5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Owl "slogan" ideas? on: October 24, 2005 11:09:19 PM
Okay, I've entered two entries to a tshirt design contest, and I'm working on a third. It's of an owl that I created (then touched up) using only letters of the same font (I forget which font) for my graphic design class last year.

The problem is, I don't want just the owl on the tshirt. I was hoping to find some sort of slogan or saying that would fit well and is clever/cute. Maybe something along the lines of, "Give a hoot - give your fellow man the one-finger salute!" or something like that??  Huh

This is the image:

Any ideas? Suggestions? Criticisms? Heeeeeelp.

Note: I'm placing the owl at the bottom of the tshirt design, so feet aren't necessary.  Cheesy
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Random illwillpress.com cartoon on: September 23, 2005 04:31:37 PM
Does anyone watch illwillpress.com?

Today I was looking at their newer stuff (it's been ages since I've really checked back at it) and I found this. http://www.illwillpress.com/vault.html Click on the Handmade Clothes one. Warning: There's crude humor and language in it...

It just amused me so I had to share.  Cheesy
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / CafePress on: September 21, 2005 08:14:33 PM
http://www.cafepress.com is a website that allows you to submit your unique graphics, drawings, doodles, etc. to their site. For no charge, you're allowed to set up a website where customers can order your goods by the price you set. There are tons of items that they will print your graphics on, such as a multitude of shirts, boxers, coffee mugs, calanders, messenger bags, clocks, mousepads and pillows. A TON of stuff.

The only catches are that:

 1) your creations must be 100% created by you. This means you cannot use a graphic even if you change it a lot so that it cannot be recognized as anyone else's work. This INCLUDES all fonts that can be downloaded, graphics, etcetera, but most people cheat a little use the fonts that aren't created by them, which is kinda understandable - who spends their time making fonts? But all too often, people rip off everything they can get their hands on that they think will fetch a price.  Angry And it does, too.  Undecided

2) They charge you a base price for the materials and printing. What is very nice about this though is that you can bump the price of your goods up so that you will make a profit. Each time something sells, they take what they charge you and you obviously keep the rest.


3) You can only use one design for each product. As in, you cannot create a dozen different designs (whether it be just a diff. color or something entirely different) for the Jr. Hoodie.

So, to wrap all of this up, I'd like all of you lovely people to check out my site and provide 100% honest feedback. I'd be ever-so-grateful.  Smiley

My mother works at Walmart, and she's informed me that they will be getting a shipment of fabric that will all sell for $1/yard October 1st or so.

I don't know if it'll be all halloween-related (they've already got Halloween stuff out) or if all Walmarts will be the same, but I figured I'd notify y'all.  Wink
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Two "dead" vacuum cleaners. on: August 12, 2005 05:44:47 PM
I have 2 vacuum cleaners that do not work anymore. I might keep one for an upcoming project I'll have to do for a course I'm taking... but I was wondering if I could do anything with the other one? Any suggestions welcome...
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pretty pretty gift wrap + other papers + glue = purse! on: August 11, 2005 06:52:03 PM
I got this amazing gift wrap from my sister-in-law for Christmas last year and was very, very careful not to tear it. I kept it, and finally made this last night.

Mini-tut, even though it's pretty easy to figure out. Pink = where to glue.

I used Elmer's glue, but because I used so many layers of paper (first I was just going to use a magazine cover and cover it in cool cut-outs from said magazine, but decided I didn't want anything showing inbetween the cutouts. So then I added black construction paper, and then of course I came up with the idea for the gift wrap.) I guess I should bust out the Super Glue.
