1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Mother/daughter craft business possibilities? on: July 16, 2006 08:39:51 AM
Okay, hopefully this belongs here.

My Mom always worked with my Father in his business, but the situation now calls for her to get a job to be independant of him.. this is after 16 years of working together, and she wants out.

Anyway, she is awfully talented and crafty. And I've been trying to tell her to use her talent at home..

So, what do you guys think? What is something profitable that she could do at home? I mean, I make jewelry, and its my little job on the side, however, my mom likes to get more down and dirty with crafts..
How do I convince her, and where would be sell? Etsy I suppose.. but how should I make it more realistic to her?

Thank you girls..and guys.
2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Got old jewlery findings/beads you don't need? on: July 02, 2006 09:36:33 PM
I've been making jewelry and thinking.. can I use this to help someone?

I thought that maybe I could either give some jewelry to some online organizations.. or to people who need some cheering up..

So, anyone have any organizations in mind, or any jewelry findings/beads you don't want or need?

Either way, send me a pm.

Thank you for reading this!

I made these a while ago, but as much as I liked them, I felt a bit childish wearing them..maybe I'll reconsider it now that I'm in college  Grin

Nothing special.. All of my special earrings have been sold without prior photography.

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Little Fishie Swap!!! on: January 09, 2005 04:24:58 PM
I just had a thought... we all (or many of us) had little hermit crabs or snails or fishies in for which we had tanks for. I personally have a leftover plastic tank from when I moves my hermies into a different tank..I'm blabbing, anyway..

Lets fill the tanks up by making little felt fishies!!

Everyone would have to make 3 fishies or so, and exchange them with your given partner. You can also make felt reefs or something to that nature, to jazz it up.. and instant tank!

If anyone is interested.. leave a message here, and/or PM me! I hope I'm not the only one who is getting excited about this Smiley

Whip out a digi, and show us what you've got, and get feedback!
..not to mention giving others inspiration!

Happy Holidays!
