General Discussion / A Novel Idea
« on: December 09, 2010, 10:51:28 PM »
Hey guys, I need some inspiration. I've been looking into writing a historical romance novel, but I'm trying to figure out what topic and what time period to write on. Any suggestions? What kind of novel would you read?

General Discussion / Some New Treasuries
« on: December 08, 2010, 04:03:29 PM »
Here's one, of course, I made the other day, for Kottage Kreations. ^-^

And today I made one called Deceptively Delicious.

I love to do this kinda thing. What kind of job would an obsessive-compulsive Treasury-maker be good at?

Another one.... :-[

Technical Help in Creating / Questions About Wire Wrapping and Such
« on: November 10, 2010, 06:07:22 PM »
Hey guys! I made my first wire bracelet, and now I have some questions for you professional wire workers. ^-^ I macramed the wire to form the piece:

It was a bit more difficult to work with than I thought it would be! ;) Now, as you can hopefully see, I tried to make a hook-and-loop type of closure. I think I did alright with the loop.........

However, I ran out of wire on the two pieces I wove with (I told myself it was better to overcompensate than to run out of wire, but I never listen to myself ;D), so all I had for the hook was the single piece of wire. Now, that's really not a horrible thing (..right?), but I wasn't sure how to coil everything so that I didn't have a little piece sticking out. I tried to file it, and when I used the pliers, it rubbed the black coating off, and exposed some of the copper. Not to mention it looks really sloppy!!

Sooo...any tips? Tricks? Critiques on what I did horribly wrong?

Contests / Music-Inspired Contest -- Challenge #2!!
« on: September 24, 2010, 10:24:01 PM »
Hey everyone! It's that time again!! :) We're starting our next big forum-wide challenge!! This time our theme is Music-Inspired. You can create an item using any medium, but it has to be inspired by a song. You can base your item off of a song title, specific lyrics in a song, or a song as a whole. Or, you could base your item off the idea or feeling of a song. Just make sure you tell us what song you picked!

So the rules are as follows:
1.) Use a song as inspiration for your item!
2.) You may use the same song as someone else.
3.) Once your entry has been completed, post it in this thread with a picture (or pictures) and the song you used. Specify which lyrics in the song you based your item off of, or if you used the whole song, or if you were simply inspired by the song.
4.) You may use classical music, or music without lyrics.
5.) Start NOW and make sure your entries are in by Monday, November 1 November 15, 2010!!
6.) You may use whatever medium you feel comfortable with, and create whatever you'd like--as long as it's inspired by a song. ;D

Once all entries have been submitted, our wonderful administrators will create a blog post where you and your friends can vote for your favourite entry!!

Now, about prizes, if you would like to donate an item as a prize for our commenters this time around (free exposure for you!), please speak up! Either post here, or send me a message. Otherwise....The WINNER of the challenge will receive $25, as well as two (2) weeks of free advertising on the forum and blog, and on and Also, once the voting has begun, anyone who votes and leaves a comment will be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to the Handmade Artists Forum Shop, as well as a bear from iKnitQuiltSew! All of these prizes are courtesy of our wonderful administrators!! ^-^ Finally, I will also write-up an HAF blog post about the winning piece and its creator.

So get started!! You guys have a month to create, so post any questions here that you might have. Have fun!!!!
