1  Illinois / Illinois: North / Crafty people in Elmhurst IL Area? on: November 17, 2007 08:38:29 AM
Hey There. I was looking for some crafty people to share ideas/trade/talk with. I love bartering! If there are any people around the area that would like to meet up. I would love to assemble!

I also just started selling on etsy, so any fellow esty members are welcome as well! Would love to swap promotional ideas and such!

I craft jewelry and paper crafts mainly and are in the primitive stadges of trying to sew. I also am interested in chainmaille and have started gathering supplies, but of course are completly confused.   Grin
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Does anyone advertise other's buisness when selling own items? on: November 17, 2007 07:36:10 AM
Sorry that was really chopped up.

I was wondering if anyone includes other shop's promotional items when shipping your item.

Like for example, when I sell a necklace, I want to include a small bag with promotional items like business cards, pins, coupons, free items, bookmarks, ect from various sellers that provide me the free material and include it in my shipment.

I figure it's free publicity for the sellers, and hopefully helps me a little bit to.

But my question is would you be offended if you received something like that. Would it seem like junk mail to you? Even if it was a small bag with a friendly note?

Any input would be appreciated.

Also if anyone has an esty shop or website and would like to participate in this with me, please send me either a message on craftster, or my etsy account. poisonousporkipine.etsy.com

Thank you! Grin
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Italian dinner ideas for a picky boyfreind on: July 03, 2007 01:00:47 PM
His birthday is coming up. Thank god for craftsters I was able to get help on his gifts which is another story.

But a little background. Going out for 5 years in jan. He doesnt' eat anything. He's italian. Typically what he likes is angelhair pasta, breadsticks and i have no idea. Only marenara sauce no meat sauce not because he's a vegitarian he's just that picki.

Any Ideas on a italian dinner?

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Dnd Dice Jewelry Help (b-day gift by july 10) on: June 26, 2007 08:24:20 PM
I'm totally not crafty with jewelry. But my boyfreind's birthday is coming up and he's a total dnd freak. I've seen these around everywhere. But I'm so new to jewlery. I've seen dungeons and dragons dice (like d20s and d4s) that have been made into pendants. they look like they're drilled. I"m unsure on how to do it. I'm really trying to find a way to either insert a eyescrew or a jump ring in it to make it attached to the end of a chain.

I'm trying to make a chainmailish bookmark for a war book he's reading. And the idea is to get either chainmail and attach a d20 at the top and a d4 at the bottom. or just go with chain and do the same thing to make like a book thong.

If there's any help it would be most apreciated. Thank you so much in advanced.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Any Suggestions on making crinkle balls for cats? on: May 11, 2007 01:51:32 PM
the only toy my cat will play with is those brightly metallic crinkle balls that make those weird noises when you scrunch them.  :-\That's it. Nothing else. day by day he gets fatter since he just chills there.  Grin  I keep buying those toys for him cause he hides them and loses them and gets them stuck under everything lol.

Any idea's that i can use to make them. He's attracted to the sound not the color or anything. I can't think of what material they are made out of.
