21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Transform a T-shirt Swap Gallery on: February 18, 2008 03:44:51 PM
I received MyrnaMinx's item a long time ago, but I haven't posted pictures because my camera is messed up.

So, I will try to fix it or see if I can borrow my mom or sister's sometime this week and get a picture up.
22  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Is a craft business a good option for a college student? on: February 05, 2008 07:14:59 PM
I'm going to be a junior in college next fall and I'm thinking I'm probably going to move a couple of hours away from home and try to take on more responsibility (as far as rent, food, gas, bills).

Anyway, I'm trying to decide if I should start selling homemade things or if I should get a hourly job - or, ofcourse, mix the two.

I've been looking into etsy and it is really encouraging to see some of the numbers from people who have been on there for a while (as far as their amount of items sold and what they charge for things).

But, is it worth it I guess is what I'm asking. I mean, we all know how much time goes into crafting things. I'm going to need a decent amount of money to pay for rent and bills and groceries - is there a chance of making anywhere close to say 800 - 1000 dollars a month just crafting or crafting and working 10 - 20 hours a week? Or should I get a 30 to 40 hour a week job and just craft for personal fulfillment?

Any opinions/ideas/recommendations would be appreciated.

I have my yoga teaching certification and I'm going to be an elementary teacher. If anyone has any good ideas for part time jobs that would go along with a school schedule, I'm always looking for ideas Smiley

Thank you in advance Smiley

Good luck with your projects Smiley
29  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Oreo Balls :) These are seriously delicious and so easy! on: December 19, 2007 08:37:48 PM
What was the trouble?

I'm going to make them tonight for hubby's employees.

When I was blending the oreos and cream cheese, it made a huge mess and when I tried to dip it, sometimes the balls would fall in, and some of them weren't completely covered because I didn't have enough chocolate.

But, I guess it was sort of worth it, because my friends LOVED them. And I gave the extras to my teachers and they liked them too. Hopefully next time it will turn out better.

It's so much easier if you regrigerate the balls for a while, then roll them, then stick them in the freezer until the harden. Someone on page four or something gave that tip, and it definitely made my life a LOT easier!

After reading this thread the other day I HAD to make some!
I did milk chocolate on the bottom, let it harden in the fridge, then added the white chocolate on top and THEN sprinkled it with tons of crushed up peppermint candy canes so it would be really colorful and pretty.
I'm taking it with me to a party tonight, I'll let ya know how it goes over. . .
Of course, I have already tried some and I think it is delicious!
Thanks so much for the recipe, I would have never thought it was so easy!
