Show me your best pieces!!
« on: July 26, 2009, 03:20:35 PM »
Hey everyone!

My name is Jade, and I work for SMF (the people who made the software this forum uses). I write their Documentation and in my spare time I do themes for people :D.

I'm working on a theme and a banner for this forum, and I wanted to look at incorporating some member works. They may be used in the theme, and the banner, so by posting those works here you agree to give permission to use them for this forum (and cannot revoke it later).

So basically, I'd really love to see some of your favourite pieces; the stuff you're proud of!
If you no longer have the piece please let me know, as I may ask for another photo from a different angle or with a different colour background :).
I'm extra nutty and a little blunt. Okay a lot blunt.
Check out my adult/family coloring pages!

Ok this was the secret that was floating around in another thread Jade has kindly offered to do a theme for us and she is going to help me with the blog as well. Our goal is to make the site more pleasing to the eye and integrate the blog and forum so they look like one site and make the navigation between them seamless.

There are so many possibilities out there for our forum and blog and we are going to make this the best site around so post your best work. Jade is going to take what she needs and make some custom stuff for our forum.

So thanks in advance for your contributions as some will become a part of the everyday new look and feel of our site.

This process will be a work in progress so be patient you will see some initial changes but more will come over the next few months as we are waiting for the next update from SMF to finalize our development of this site.

Andrew - I think this is an awesome idea - so should we post them here - or would it better for us to send the photos at a better resolution so she  can play with them a little more?

Just post your best work here If Jade needs something she will let us know, she is just like Haffina one of those pushy Australians ....... Just kidding LOL  ;D

What she is looking to do is use the members work in the theme so post it in this thread and we will go from there. Remember if she doesn't use your work don't take offense as she has a vision of some sorts and I've given her creative freedom because she has a vision  that I don't have.


So put up your best stuff something that you think is finest work.

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22590676 I believe this is my best work. Although I do enjoy all of my items. But Bill the Monkey was my first monkey I made and I didnt make a pattern I just went with it. After that and put it up for sale on the Etsy site everyone went nuts for him.

the monkeys now come in different colors and also accessories.

Three Button Around the Neck Scarf for Air Conditioned Places

This hand knitted scarflette is very versatile and wearable. In lovely blue tones it goes around the neck and buttons onto the end with three vintage blue buttons. A real neckwarmer on chilly days without the bulk of a long scarf. Just right for your air conditioned workplace or even at home when the cool air bothers your neck.
