1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Pet Allergies and Vintage Clothing? on: September 25, 2013 08:29:13 AM
Hi everyone!

I'm researching selling vintage clothing online and in-person via craft and art fairs, festivals, etc. One question I had:

I have a dog and cat-friendly home. I keep everything clean, but I'm concerned about the occasional dander and those with allergies. Should I put a disclaimer online regarding this? How would I put a disclaimer at a fair/festival? Would a sign work?

I've bought items online for several years, dealt with dozens of people, and have only seen a disclaimer one or twice. Washing items before selling may not be an option (some still have tags attached). In addition, it's vintage clothing, so I have no idea where it could have been in the past 20 years.

However, I have a death fear of lawsuits, and I'd hate myself forever if I caused illness to another person.

I found an old similar thread, and I know I'm opening up a can of worms here, but I'd like some advice regarding this. Thanks so much!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Sewing dog clothes from baby clothes? on: February 20, 2010 07:14:48 AM
This weekend I went to a thrift store and found lots of adorable baby clothes for really cheap. I'm thinking I can try to reconstruct them into dog outfits. The ones I bought are all dresses and are sleeveless.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Any tips? I did a search but couldn't find much.

I'm thinking I'll try the dress on her, measure and sew to fit.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Would like to rearrange furniture, but living room has no walls... on: March 04, 2009 09:18:22 AM
I want to rearrange my living room, but I have no idea how to.

Basically, I don't really have any walls in my living room. One wall there are nothing but doors that lead to the garage, the other a giant window, the other only a fireplace and the hallway, and the other wall is open to the kitchen and dining room.

Here are a couple from when I first moved in a couple of years ago:

And here is the furniture I have now:

I'd really like to move the furniture around somehow, but I don't have a clue as to how to make it look good... help!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Where do you store your electronics? on: July 07, 2008 07:09:54 AM
My hubby and I have tons of electronics. I'd really like to set-up something where we keep them all easily accessible. Just sort of "grab and go" so to speak.

I've seen the "docking stations," but those seem to be rather expensive and I don't necessarily need to keep them charged anyways.

I don't want them to look tacky just sitting on a counter or whatever.

So... any ideas? Pics, etc?

Thanks!!!  Cheesy
5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Help! Only 18 hours 'til Thanksgiving Dinner! on: November 21, 2007 03:58:20 PM
So, being the total dumbo that I am, I forgot to buy one of the main ingredients for the cranberry sauce. I got this recipe from Rebook:


I totally forgot the Apricot Spread. Does anyone know of a good substitution? Or does anyone have a recipe for cranberry sauce using fresh cranberries?

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Just a couple of skirts on: October 31, 2007 10:44:40 AM
A few years ago, I had a thing for skirts. I guess because they were easy and inexpensive to make. I made these before I knew what I was doing, so I'll admit, my mom helped tremendously! Matter of fact, I mostly just designed them and picked out the fabric! Smiley

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Dining Room Question on: October 23, 2007 01:04:01 PM
Is your dining room supposed to match your kitchen? In my house, the living room and dining room are open to each other, but there is a small wall separating the kitchen from the dining room.

My kitchen is blue and brown (Ratatouille) and my living room is red/black/brown. What would be more appropriate for my dining room? I am so afraid I have made a mistake with my kitchen (even though I love it) because it doesn't match anything else in the house! I am so afraid of looking tacky.

8  COOKING / Dessert / Springform Pan? on: October 17, 2007 11:54:14 AM
I don't have a Springform pan, so what is a good substitute for one? I'm making an ice-cream cake that calls for one.
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Custom Lightsaber Hilt on: October 11, 2007 05:35:36 PM
A few years ago when Episode 3 came out, my friends and I decided to make our very own lightsaber hilts. Of course, being girly, I had to make mine pink. With rhinestones.

After a trip to the hardware store and some PVC pipe, I came up with...

My cat just had to be in the picture!

Apparently people even have businesses customizing these things!
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My Ratatouille-esque kitchen! (Pic Heavy - may cause dial-up death) on: October 08, 2007 06:38:13 PM
My husband and I bought our first house this summer and, after one trip to the Disney Store, I knew exactly what I wanted for our kitchen.

The tiny, but satisfying, kitchen:

Chef Gustav watches over my cooking.

The two shades I chose. I actually didn't plan on doing the border, but I layered the paint on way too thick and it was peeling really bad at the edges.

Disney's Emile spoon rest.

The Ratatouille recipe box.

Disney, again.

This pot holder rug was totally inspired by: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=116528.0 I highly recommend padding under the rug, because it can be very slippery!

Now, here is where I have saved the best for last. I can not take credit for this, as it goes to Disney and my mother-in-law.

All of the Ratatouille artwork is from The Art of Ratatouille. My mother-in-law totally free-handed them. She's amazing  Smiley 

Well, that's my kitchen. I'm hitting "Post" now, and praying these pics work!

Thanks for looking!!!  Grin
