1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / banner opinions please on: July 22, 2006 12:46:52 AM
Hi all,

I've been procrastinating about getting my etsy shop up for a while "when I have a banner..." "when I have *x amount* of stock..." you get the idea. I've finally knocked one of the excuses out of the way - what does everyone think of my banner? Any advice?

*edit: flickr seems to screw up the bottom half - go to http://static.flickr.com/67/195225022_f19987932c_o.jpg to see the banner in all it's original glory.
2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / The Masked Avenger in the land of Oz on: July 21, 2006 06:41:25 PM
I've been busy with a bunch of random crafting recently, most of which I can't show off until it's sent to my crafting partner and she's received it (nope, no spoilers to be found here!). What I can share with you, however, is my recent costume creations. I wasn't sure where to put this topic, if I'm in the wrong spot then I'm sorry and feel free to move me

I had to attend a 'Red Carpet' affair where everyone dressed as a movie character. I went as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and while I don't have a picture of the whole costume, I do have to share the shoes with you.

They took TWENTY METRES of red sequins! That's a lot of red sequins.

This weekend will be spent celebrating my cousin's 18th birthday with a masquerade ball. I made a mask for the event that I am quite proud of.

Isn't it lovely?
3  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Need some help brainstorming funding ideas on: February 19, 2006 04:46:11 PM
Hey fellow Craftsters,

My little sister has just been offered a 'full scholarship' to the VIS (Victorian Institute of Sport) as a goalie and is being trained up to join the Australian women's soccer league. The scholarship entitles her to access to their coaches and facilities, but doesn't cover - travel to training (we live 2 hours away and she trains 3-4 times a week) or the cost of getting to games... With a championship held in China in May rapidly approaching and a single mum studying fulltime with four kids, I don't know that my mum is going to cope too well with the financial side of it.
So I've taken it upon myself to help fund as much of the trip as possible - both myself and by organising as many fundraisers and sponsors as I can. What I need from you guys is help brainstorming some fundraising ideas. Here's what I've got so far -

* We know the editor of the local paper, so we will be trying to get as much publicity as possible from that.
* Raffle tickets with a donated prize or a soccer ball signed by my sister.
* Corporate Sponsorship deals
* An auction with donated items and more signed stuff by sister.
* A trivia night
* A fair/fete held at her school, proceeds from stall fees to go to her. As well as a table of my crafty stuff and 'Support Stef' merch, with all profits going to my sister.
* Maybe a gig, considering I have a background in event organisation this seems like a viable option. I would include a skate comp at the gig as well as another of Stef's passions is skateboarding.

This it what I've got so far, but I plan to make this an ongoing thing, setting her up a bank account that can be accessed when she needs to go away, for new gear etc.

Any ideas you have would be really appreciated, sorry this ended up so long.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Oh Gosh... pre-signup anxiety! on: February 16, 2006 07:55:20 AM
I was just reading back through the past topics on this section of the forum and it has (almost) scared me off signing up for any swaps when I become eligible... Add on top of my stress about the quality of the stuff I produce being below par my new worry about flakers and disorganised organisers.

It's not all doom and gloom obviously, or people wouldn't do it. Maybe everyone would like to share a favourite story or positive swapping experience to lighten up this (sometimes) dark corner of craftster?

5  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Central Victorian craftsters...? on: February 15, 2006 10:08:18 PM
I'm fairly new to the site, lurked for a while but have decided to start getting more involved in the community.. So are there any C.V. craftsters around? I'm from Bendigo myself and would love to talk to people that are from my area - share info on sales, awesome shops etc..
