1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How did you ask your landlord permission...or did you? on: April 12, 2008 11:51:28 AM
For you crafty renters out there, how did you ask your landlord for permission to run a home-based business. I have an idea of how to propose it, but I was wondering if someone had a great form letter or tips on how to make it go smoothly. Or are you keeping mum about your business?

I know that my apartment building is zoned for home businesses, and it's all mailorder so no foot traffic. Now it's just a matter of getting the okay to proceed with the everything and getting my papers going. Does a  landlord actually have to sign something? if it makes any difference, I live in SF, CA.

Many thanks!

In case anyone else is interested, I found boxes of 50 plain white matchbooks at the Smart & Final in South San Francisco! And they only cost $1.15 a box, way better than the $16.00 for 50 they were charging at some wedding favor websites. I bought 6 boxes, and look how cute the packaging is:

There is some tiny writing at the bottom of the books that says "D.D. Bean & Sons Jaffrey, N.H.", but it doesn't stand out at all. Hope others can use this info in the future. Thanks for reading!

I am new to this cube stuff, but how about a Rubik's cube design (a bunch of squares) that just uses different shades of blue? Or does everyone do that and am I totally unoriginal? Either way, good luck!

I suck.


Baby's suck.

(referring to breastfeeding, not babies themselves, of course.)
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Blank matchbooks in the Bay Area? on: February 15, 2006 07:09:51 PM
This is a call to my fellow craftsters to help me find some blank matchbooks in the SF Bay Area. I plan on decorating them as birthday party favors, so I need them to be as blank as possible (white is ideal). I have just begun my search, and am planning on checking Longs, Walgreens, and a couple of party stores for starters. I was hoping some of you may know off the top of your head where I could get some.

Also, I was planning on using my Gocco to print images on them. Do you think this is safe? Is Gocco ink oil-based? I don't want to ignite any well-wishers.

Thanks all!

You have inspired so many! One more to add to that list. After reading your how-to post, I just had to do it myself. It was so easy!  The hardest part was finding the right image (I decided on Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks).
(Sorry my image is so big. Still figuring out the posting thing.)

I like silkscreening, but the cost of supplies have always scared me off. Anyone can afford a couple of tubes of acrylic paint (99 cents each or less!). Here's my shirt. Bummer thing is that I have to wait 7 days to wear it according to the directions on the paint. Man!

My friend just made a shirt sing a homemade stencil and fabric spray paint(!). I didn't even know that stuff existed! It look very lo-tech, but in a cool kind of way.

Fab project! I love the fabric you used. It looks just like an old pillowcase that my grandma had (I turned it into a skirt). Pillowcases have a multitude of uses.
