Yours came out soo cute! I make these too but I never used brownies that sounds delicious! This year I made strawberry cake and dipped it in Ghiradelli white chocolate. These make such a great gift and they show you care.

14  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Pattern help please on: December 11, 2008 09:34:14 AM
Ok so I've been working on snowflakes. I'm pretty ok with just crocheting freely buut I've been trying to follow a pattern now. I understand the abbreviations I just don't know what to do with them lol. I been reading tons of websites on how to understand them so I learned how to do the round by round but on this pattern round 4 has really confused me. I think I followed the other rounds ok but mine isn't identical lol but it's ok =]
Here's the pattern: http://www.crochetsal.com/snowflake.html

Here's what I have so far:

On round 4 am I supposed to crochet in the round or what? This is the only round I need a translation for

Isn't that snowflake pattern adorable though?? Thanks in advance for whoever looks and/or helps!!  Grin
15  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / fabric closeouts in manhattan on: May 18, 2008 10:57:36 AM
I love closeout sales so I had to let others know. If you take the a/c to 34th st, as soon as you get out that street (I forgot either 33rd or 35th its behind Conways) there's quite a few fabric stores, well like half of them are closing out and I saw yards of fabric on sale for 50 to 99 cents a yard! Great deals! I don't know when the stores are closing but take advantage soonn Grin
16  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Best dollar stores? on: May 18, 2008 10:53:01 AM
I absolutely love dollar stores and I know that you can find some great craft supplies in some. Where's your best dollar store at?

There's one, I forgot the name  Angry, but if you take the r to northern blvd. (Queens) its right next to michaels. They have styrofoam, fake flowers, glass marbles, and other stuff.

Sometimes in CVS's dollar section, they have some cute beads, sequins, and other stuff so keep an eye out.

Anyone know anywhere else?

Hmm well I'm still searching for a place to buy cheap charms but I know one place that sells pretty sterling silver charms. The price depends on the charm but you can find them in the back of CoolCat its a jewelry/accessory store in downtown BK (a/c/g to hoyt-schemerhorn or 2/3 to hoyt) its on fulton by hoyt. They also have cheap jewelry that you can probably take apart and use the charms.

On 14th street, there's a jewelry store where everything is $2.99 so you can take everything apart and use that. I forgot the name but the window has a sign that says everything 2.99$ lol there's also a Leila Rose and another cheap jewelry store (like the same stuff as coolcat but more) um I usually take the train to union square (L/4/5/6/r/n/q/w) and you just walk 14th st going up the aves. Or it might be closer to 14th st/6th ave (L/1/2/3/f) its not past 8th ave and shouldn't be past 7th but I'm not too sure.

Shrinky dink plastic I'm not too sure, I know michael's has it but that's in queens. I know Barnes and Nobles has the kits for no more than 10$ in the kids kit section but I don't know if that's in your budget. There's B&N everywhere, but there's the big one in union square if you decide to check out those jewelry stores.

Well I hope I helped, good luck!
18  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / packaging magnets?? on: May 16, 2008 10:25:15 AM
Well I have sets of those glass marble magnets that I would like to sell. I want to sell them in sets of 3/4, the only problem is I don't know how to package them. I'd like them on a flat index card (yes its cheap but you can do wonders) and I'd like to hand them vertically. Now should I glue the magnets onto the index card? How exactly can I attractively stick the magnets onto the index card without there being leftover glue or anything of the sort? And how can I package it if I don't have money for shrink wrap or plastic bags, kind of like a sandwich bag budget? Thanks for looking!
19  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: I'm new here, and need some pricing help? on: May 16, 2008 10:19:56 AM
Here are the 2 basic formulas I follow. You just need 3 numbers; cost of materials, how many items you can make in a hour, labor cost per hour.

Soo lets say materials is 1.50$, you can make 3 items an hour, and you want 10$ an hr (labor is 3.33$ per item)

A. (Materials x # of items made) + labor = wholesale price x 2 = retail price
(1.50 x 3) = 4.50 + 3.33 = 7.83 x 2 = 15.66$


B. (Materials + labor) x # of items made = wholesale price x 2 = retail price
(1.50 + 3.33) x 3 = 14.49 x 2 = 28.98$

Retail price is double wholesale price so you can get a better profit. Just estimate your numbers and try both equations to see which would give you a better price. That would be fair selling.

Hope it helps!

I do stretchy bracelets a lot and I usually put some clear nailpolish over the knot. It helps it last longer  Wink
