1  Re: Looking to chat with other made from stratch Etsy clothing designers in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by rejectedblueziti on: November 29, 2006 07:05:15 AM
Hey there,
About half my stuff is made from scratch clothing.  I actually see quite a few higher priced clothing goods... some of my stuff is (http://plaidish.etsy.com, also

I think your work is gorgeous.  If you look through a few of those designers that I listed, you'll notice that most of them have either photo shoots with people posing in interesting ways, or the items on people/dress forms with no background - no paint colour, nothing.  Also, their descriptions make the shops seem very high end/worth the money.

I still struggle with all this.

For what it is worth, I will try to mention you on the fashion board I frequent next time someone is looking for a gorgeous top/dress - I think your stuff would be right up their alley, and they seem to have more money to spend than the average craftperson.

2  Also, long glamourpuss earrings... two pairs in Beads: Completed Projects by rejectedblueziti on: December 09, 2005 05:24:13 PM
My friend showed me how to make them.  I feel so glamorous!  They are pretty easy, and they don't take many beads so I went for a couple expensive crystal things.  I figured I'd post 'em while I was at it.  I can post how to make these too, if anyone is interested.

4  Geometric wall mural type thing. It is blue. in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by rejectedblueziti on: December 09, 2005 04:17:20 PM
So, my sister is an artiste and got hired to paint a mural.  Being a good sister, she hired me to help.  The whole thing just took a couple of days; it was about 7 ft. by 7, I would say.

Here it is: you can see her little piece of paper design to the right taped on the door

And my sister, modeling it up.

8  Car/lots of other side of the road junk+chickens=chicken coop in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by rejectedblueziti on: November 22, 2005 01:57:11 PM
So.  I decided, for a number of reasons, that store bought eggs and chicken were not the best idea.  The solution was to do it myself!  Self reliance and all of that.  I live in Canada, and my city lets you keep agricultural animals in town for personal use.

I've since done this type of project with chickens in Australia and pheasants (in canada again).

First - we got chickens and ducks.  Had to keep the chicks/ducklings inside under heating lamp until they got big enough.  To keep from drowning, had a saucer with marbles in the water.

Then, we gutted an old car of the entire floor and seats, and replaced it with plywood (found on side of the road).  The passenger seat turned into nestboxes, also made out of found wood.  We installed a heat lamp via extension cord onto the roof of the car, and covered the floor in shavings.  We found chicken wire for a fence, an old kiddie pool for the ducks, and camo net for the top of the car.

Resulting in 3 dozen eggs a week from 6 chickens, plus 4 ducks (which we slaughtered last week)
