Hello all  :D

I come from Ireland and I love to paint,write make music and pretty much anything art related.

I recently got into jewelry design and working with polymer clay, mostly making hand-painted pendants, necklaces and  earrings, and started selling on Etsy last September. I'm working on getting my shop more stocked up.

Where in Ireland?  I've been there twice - once in '98 with my sister and again in '09 for my honeymoon.

And welcome to the new peeps, beautiful shops!

That was the tail end of our trip!  We started in Dublin, rented a car, and drove across, ending in Clare.  We stayed the last night in Ennis, saw the Cliffs of Moher, then flew out of Shannon.  Next time we start in the west & spend more time thataway.

Hello everyone,

I am a fiber artist and self confessed fiber addict. I started out with knitting many years ago making items for my family. I now do spinning, felting (both needle and wet), weaving, and dying of the fibers. I also raise my own Alpacas.  My husband & I decided to raise them after owning 2 fiber males. We currently have 24 alpacas in our herd. We also have chickens, dairy goats and 5 Maremma sheepdogs to guard the livestock. Sometimes my ranching "duties" get in the way of my creativity,  but I love doing both "jobs".  I have several sites that you can "follow" happenings here on the ranch and I also sell my products online at artfire. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Hi all. New to the forum: invited in by tweeter. Not sure if I'll find time to be here much, but I have to say it seems to be a pretty awesome place. I've seen people talking about crafts I would never have thought of before.

My crafts are the typical, boring kind. I make cell phone charms, tiny clay people, OOAK dolls, and am trying to expand into a business making custom charms in bulk for other people.

I'm kind of excited about the last bit. After months of saving a piddly $200 for a piece of equipment, I finally was able to order it and it should be here Monday. But don't get me started.

Lovely to meet you all.

And then there were none.

Don't sell yourself short! Start posting some pics in the gallery and you'll see that no one thinks it's boring!

Hello, my name is Debbie, sometimes I am also known as Dharlee. I wanted to stop by and tell you hello and introduce myself. I make handmade jewelry and sell mostly on Etsy. I have been a member here for a bit but never really posted. I would like to become more involved with the group, but can't on Thursday nights as I work those nights. However, it seems like such a nice group, perhaps there are somethings I can participate in and help out with. :)

Post in the gallery? If I can figure out how.

Jewelry, Dharlee? What kind? I guess that's for another thread, though.

Hi everyone, Im new, just started selling my handmade crochet.  Not sure where to even start.  I want to learn more and meet new people.  I love to crochet and have been crocheting for many years now.  Just started selling it on Etsy, still learning about it, but I have sold a few items.  I hope to get some marketing advice and maybe some helpful leads. 
Thank you
Jennifer
