It always amazes me to see all the new talent that join this site everyday. Post some of your work in the gallery and invite a friend. We work hard to promote each other and hand made!

Hi! I am new here... I found you on Twitter.  :) I make and sell all natural bath and body products. Mostly right now I am selling soap, but I'm slowly adding new products. :)
 I'm glad I discovered this site!

Hi Everyone!
I am new here (of Course) and first I wanna say that I don't know how I am going to keep up with all of this online activity I have 2 new sites to learn on top of fb, twitterville, blog, etsy, websites.... We'll c how this works out. (There is no smiley face to insert here that displays my emotion on this issue).

Anyway, I am a Jewelry designer that wishes to quit her job and do this full time  :) I have been doing this for about 7 years and I love it.

Okay be patient with me I have to learn how to navigate this place and forgive me if I am slow in replying. I really should be doing something else right now but I not.

;) Greetings!
My name is Kathy and I make duct tape accessories. I don't just cover something in duct tape! The entire item is designed and constructed by yours truly using duct tape (and a few other things for stability and embellishing). I make purses, totes, messenger bags, vinyl record bags, journals, wallets (bifold, trifold and ladies) and backpacks. I am always expanding and creating new things.
There are a lot of duct tape artists out there and I respect each one of them. But what sets me apart from all of them is that I have the biggest selection of styles/bag sizes. I am also always evolving and thinking of new things to do with the duct tape.

My newest creation is a day of the dead sugar skull made from duct tape and put on a duct tape drawstring bag.

Hi All! I'm April of PunkRevolver/VinylAffliction.  I have 2 wonderful kids and a husband that is proud to serve our country.

I do a little bit of everything (thus the Revolver). I focus on being eco-conscious in what I do, trying to use recycled, repurposed or vintage items in my work.  I've been crafting for  most of my life. Right now I am focusing on Woodwork, paper flower making, tutorials, and of course record crafting.

My background is in marketing and web design, both of which I spend more time on for others than I do myself.

I am working on articles for sellers to help improve your business, let me know if there is a topic you'd like to see covered.  Beginning to work on interviews as well, I can tell from the posts I've clicked through here that this board is a good board for finding people worth interviewing!

I've added all my links to my signature, hope that you'll take a moment and check out what I create.  Hope that you all have a beautiful week!
