1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / where are all the cheap fairs on: January 07, 2009 12:16:21 PM
I am interested in taking the plunge and doing a craft show and i have looked around online and the cheapest one i can find is like $250 for a booth! i keep reading about all these fairs with $20 booths and other cheap entry fees. where can i find them? i live just outside toronto, canada and am starting to think this is an american thing and that if i want to do a show here, i am going to have to shell out the big bucks!

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I "Love" My new clock! on: February 14, 2008 10:26:35 AM
Sorry for the bad pun! lol. i am pretty sure that this is where this goes, if not, mods, feel free to move!

Heres the story, I'm a huge Beatles fan and my sister went to Vegas without me and saw the Love Cirque du Soliel. I know, right? anyways, she brought be back (among other things,) extra gift bags and Love tissue paper.. They were both pretty cool and i had no idea what to do with them.

Then, one day, i was cruising through Ikea and saw this clock and it hit me! i should get out my mod-podge and make a Beatles clock!

So here it is:

This is the clock i started with:

Here it is all done!:

Close-up of the front: (made with the gift bag)

The sides: (made with the tissue paper)

Sorry about the bad pic quality, my good camera is acting funny
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / arrgh!!! just a rant on: September 29, 2007 08:46:35 PM
So this doesnt necessarily apply only to beads, but to all crafting in general but it happened to me in regards to beading.

Recently, someone approached me about selling some of the beaded necklaces i have made in our school store. now i was really excited about this (as i think anyone would be) so i smile my way to class and start telling someone about this. She looks at me point-blank and says "no offence, but i wouldnt buy your jewellry. not because it sucks, but because its homemade. I only want expensive jewellry."

why do people not appreciate home-made items? not only that, but was that not the rudest thing to say?

sorry about the rant, i just had to get it off my chest and i figured all you other craftsters would understand

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / my first foray into beading....comments and criticism welcomed (kinda img heavy) on: September 29, 2007 08:39:25 AM
Hello All!

I recently took up beading to add to my (long) list of crafts. i know right? like we need anymore hobbies.

anyway. i thought i would post some pics of stuff i've made! here goes:

This is the first necklace i made. this pendant actually has small flowers on it but my camera sucks so you cant really tell

Wooden Beads:

Three strands:

So this one isnt beading, but i love it...mods if you want to delete it...sorry i put it in the wrong place but i didnt want to do another post for just one:

Thanks for looking!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 50's housewife dress on: September 03, 2007 04:57:20 PM
hey all!

meet my 50's housewife dress. its uber cute, especially when paired with my cute brown heels ...the pic does not do it justice.

***updated to show semi-action shot. i dont have any full body action shots, but this one shows the top a bit better (i think it looks a little wonky in the other pic)

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / weird fitting t-shirt to fun tank top on: June 30, 2007 01:50:47 PM
so i've always loved me some tank girl, so when i saw this targetshirt at a thrift store, i had to have it. sadly, when i got it home.i found it to be very boxy, and short. what to do, what to do?...make it into a tank top of course. all i did was take an el cheapo beater, cut the shirt into a box (took off the sleeves and neckline), put them together, and Voila! a shirt that fits!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pretty cherry dress...whaddaya think? on: May 01, 2007 09:52:56 AM
hey all..this is my first post of something ive made. ive been sewing forever now but when i saw this fabric, i fell in love! let me know what you think. The pattern had the chest really high and ugly thick straps so i lowered the chest and used a thin(ner) ribbon for the straps. sorry its not ironed but my iron broke and i have to get a new one Sad
