This is my third bunny, hannah confiscated my first one, and then she got me an order from a friend at school.  Now I finally got one listed in my shop.

Handmade Artists' Shop (HAFshop) / what category should I use?
« on: June 17, 2013, 03:55:54 PM »
I have started a new section in my shop for specialty cut mats and "maybe" frames.  I just finished a custom order for someone who wanted to display her diplomas, but Michaels wouldn't do them because they were 2 different sizes.  I did them, and they turned out wonderful.  I will also be offering specialty cut mats in standard sizes, but I'm not sure what section to put them under...
art (they can be used to frame your artwork)
housewares - frames (but they are not really frames)
paper (?)
Any suggestions?

Technical Help in Creating / me!

I have this wonderful vintage pendant I want to upscale with a new cord/bead/chain.  the silver on it looks dull, and I'm not sure how to clean it up.  I have no idea what kind of silver it is, or even what the stone is, all I know is I love it.  Does anyone have any guesses or tips? 2 of the photos are with flash, and 2 without.

Art / life is a beach...

the new promo ring starts tomorrow, but I did mine today as an example and just to "test the waters".  It took me about 30 minutes, but I have a slow computer and kids.  :P

the featured artists this time are the Kitchens, so you can choose an item from either shop.

now those who tweet and facebook, and google+ if you like, just use the buttons at the bottom of my post, then come back here and just say "shared".

if you don't blog, but tweet...tweet an item from the featured shop (and from one from your shop) and use the hashtag #hafrings and then let us know you tweeted.  When we search twitter for that hashtag, your tweets will come up and we will retweet.

if you facebook...ditto...

now let's throw this ring against the wall and see if it sticks!  ;) :laugh:

Twitter Ring / NEW twitter ring sign up for summer 2013
« on: May 05, 2013, 07:48:53 PM »
Ok's time.  time for another round of the blog / twitter / facebook ring.  I told you we would  be trying something new, and Pam (beadthing) and I have decided to collaborate these 3 rings.  I know this is a long explanation, but please read thru to the end. This is how it will (hopefully) work...

On a Sunday (start date is yet to be determined) we will announce a theme and a featured shop.  This will be chosen from the shops that have been faithfully participating in the rings, and any new shops that faithfully participate in the future.  This shop will be announced on all 3 rings and then the following should happen...

the blog ring, post a feature showcasing an item from the featured shop, an item from your own shop, and an item from any other shop (HA or other), all in keeping with the theme.  The featured shop will last 2 weeks, but there may be a switch in the theme after the first week (so the featured shop may get 2 posts).  Then return to the discussion thread and leave the link to your post (not the link to your blog).  then visit, comment, and share the other posts.  then visit the other 2 rings (if you facebook or twitter).

the facebook ring, the same theme and featured shop will be announced here.  so you can post your theme on your page, and then share the link to your post so others can then share that post.  Then visit the blogs that have been posted and share them also.

the twitter ring, ditto above.

Now for the really big news....since we have found that some of the people that sign up for the rings can not always keep their commitment, the rings will be "come and go", meaning that you are not signing up for a definite number of weeks or posts.  If you can/want to, just jump onto the thread at any time.  If you have a busy week where you can't participate, no harm no foul and no need to "make it up".  Pam and I love you all, but we are not your mama's and don't want to have to nag/remind you.  >:) ;D
We want to make this fun again, for all of us.  Just remember that if you are not "faithful" you may not be picked as a featured shop.

We have started these threads just to see who might be interested doing the rings this way, so if you plan to participate, sign below.  If you have any suggestions, leave them too.  And let's get back to supporting handmade, and each other.
