24  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Wagglepop.com? on: November 21, 2006 05:35:21 PM
Has anyone here had any success with wagglepop.com? I just ran into it for the first time and it is like a 'neat' ebay. no selling fee, no listing fee, no pic fee but a monthly fee of 9.95 ..... Any thoughts?


PS I am working on an etsy shop and don't like ebay. I haven't had any positive experience out of it... Are there any other sites similar to this??? Thanks guys!
25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Woooowooooo! I DID IT! I MADE A CIRCLE SKIRT!!! on: November 07, 2006 10:09:36 AM
I DID IT!!!!!!!!!
I, Diannab, made a circle skirt! For those that don't know me, I have been trying to make one for awhile and gave up completely frustrated and not understanding why I couldn't get it right........ Well wait no longer, because here is my first successful circle skirt (unhemmed ) and made with free fabric because I have already wasted so much fabric trying again and again and again! lol. To my surprise, the fabric I used is already in a tube Cheesy So that was fun to work with Grin lol heheheheheheheheheehhe.....


pardon my sewing mess in the background lol. Sorry, I cropped out her happy face cause she is my kiddo Grin hehehehehe

the action shot

I can't believe that I made something so simple into something so hard.... Shaking head.... I really can't but after being able to set in sleeves and sew bras, I knew I had to try and figure this out... Plus I want to make my girls the Anthropologie jacket in designer homage and to do that you have to make a bubble skirt and to do that you have to make a circle skirt Grin LOL so please, tel me what you think! All comments welcome and greatly appreciated (how else would I learn Grin ) LOL Oh, and the yoke turned out to be a twelve inch tube lol so I am debating about adding a top band and making it a dress. Cheesy It is such a beautiful teal color Grin I am so proud of myself!
LOL Thanks, DI

27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Celtic Crafting on: October 27, 2006 04:34:41 PM
Okay all, I did a search for celtic crafting and turned up 25 pages of stuff mostly related to knitting/crocheting. Seeing that I am no good at those..... I am posing a question.... Cheesy

My hubby's family is of Irish decent and when his paternal gm passed away when he was a teen, pretty much all celtic crafts went with her Sad SOooooooooooooooo.......... I would like to learn how to do all this. Learn how to do celtic knots, learn hot to do celtic knot dresses, how they do their intricate designs in their knot work and anything and everything else that pertains to Irish/Celtic Crafting. Cheesy THanks guys. And excuse my idoidicy if this has already been posted.... I couldn't find it.... Sad

TIA Cheesy Grin
28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Help! Gift for some of the most wonderful neighbors! on: October 26, 2006 12:28:24 PM
Okay, I did a search and couldn't pull back a whole lot of info.....
So, my neighbors are so sweet! Cheesy They are always giving the girls cupcakes, dolls, etc. We take them their mail every weekday. Cheesy So here is my dilemma: They gave the girls a set of pjs, each, and some cupcakes too...... They are so sweet. And they go out of their way to do all of this even though they are on a tight budget. The eldest of the two neighbors is prolly in her 80s or so and her daughter, who lives with her, is prolly in her 50s..... they have a cat.... and have children and grandchildren that all live out of state....... sooooooooo................. any ideas?
I am good at:       cooking, sewing, painting, crafting.... just can't do any crochet (just learning), knitting, tatting, etc (cause I have no clue............) LOL So any suggestions are greatly appreciated! I always send a basket over full of homemade cookies, some blueberry streusel cobbler (from scratch) topped with ice cream, berry mix cake (from scratch).............. So, please give me some ideas!

29  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Send A Care Package to a Craftster Child? on: October 12, 2006 05:44:43 PM
Hey everyone! I just finished up the Mommy & Me swap and discovered I would like to be more in control of the crafting! LOL Cheesy Grin But I know that there is one swap where everyone exchanges packages for the kids... but what about a new spin on it.... what about one package swap a month...? Would that be too much of a commitment? Any ideas on how to get it to work out? I am sure it would be considered ongoing or something like that.... I just love crafting for children and could see a medium package getting sent out monthly..... Cheesy Like (One medium and two smalls) or something to that effect.... Let me know what you think!?! Cheesy

30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Questions about a ducttape backpack..... on: October 11, 2006 03:47:31 PM
My first Purse forum post! Hehehehe! Okay guys..... any ideas on how to make this:

? I love it and am good with duct tape---- I made my own ducttape dummy quit nicely if I do say so for myself! Tongue Cheesy Grin I am trying to figure out in what order it should be constructed for the most durability.... my kids would be loading them down with junk and I would want the straps to be able to withstand repeated abuse! Cheesy Grin Thanks ahead of time!

Also--they mention its available as a messenger style which I would love myself.... any thoughts there?

I did a search for the bookbag and got nada, and found some limited stuff about messenger bags. Cheesy Let me know thanks! Di
