Handmade Artists' Shop (HAFshop) / Valentines!
« on: January 05, 2011, 06:50:52 PM »
Have you started listing Valentines yet? I just put my first in my shop:

These are new this year, but other printable Valentines I had last year did really well on Etsy, so hopefully I can get some traffic here this year. :)

General Discussion / An offer--if you need graphic design work
« on: December 22, 2010, 11:21:57 AM »
Hi all! I've officially slowed down for the holidays, but the crazy school & work schedule here still has my family busy up until tomorrow night.

So I have free time! And I'm in a giving spirit! lol
If you need any graphic design work done, I'd love to help, free of charge. As long as you're reasonable! :) I'm not going to create a logo for free, for example. But an ad maybe? If you need something like is on the sides here or help with a banner, putting together a postcard featuring your work so you can advertise in the new year, etc. You name it.

Hope everyone is having a very happy holiday season!

Congratulations!! And an HOUR closer?! Wowee!! That will make up for the pay cut, in my opinion.
At least... that's what we figured when DH found his job. It was either work in our town or commute with everyone else in the world (We're close to D.C.)!!
Congratulations, again!! So happy for you.

Well, this should tell you how much we are ALL enjoying the secret santa gift that arrived here! It's been here for 5 days and this is practically the first time I'm getting it so I can take a photo!!

The lovely iKnitQuiltSew made me a beautiful, soft, and warm blanket! What more could you want on these cold winter days?! It's huge and my favorite: daisies! My husband, two kids, and I snuggled up with it and were quickly joined by our two cats. LOVE it!! Beautiful work. Thank you so much for thinking of us!!

Wow!  All of these gifts are so wonderful!  Mine went in the mail to my recipient the 13th and USPS said it was delivered the 15th!!!  Speedy service at this time of year!  I am getting more and more anxious to receive my surprise!

Good luck, I just promoted the first piece :D

Saw it on facebook! THANKS!! I'm trying hard to get more traffic here. LOVE it! :)

Agreed! It happens to me, but when I can step away for a bit, I am usually overwhelmed with ideas. :)
Of course, this isn't always an option since I do custom design work and am usually on a deadline! lol But I do this with my own items. :)

Housewares should work. :) Thanks!
No, I don't make the plates, just the artwork ON the plates.

General Discussion / Do you sell DIY patterns/printables?
« on: September 27, 2010, 09:58:09 AM »
I think a lot of us are trying to save money this year while we're planning for the holidays. I was looking into patterns--some toys/plushies I could make for my children & I stumbled on so many awesome patterns out there!
So I've just started a collection on my blog. So far they're all from Etsy.
This would be an awesome way to promote shops here! So if you have any patterns/printables you sell, will you let me know? I'd love to feature you.

Some excellent advice! Thank you!
I'm so out-of-touch sometimes--I didn't even know about the rearrange your shop feature!

General Discussion / Re: Orchard Treasury
« on: August 23, 2010, 10:32:47 AM »
OH I love LOVE love it! I'm really ready for Autumn.
Funny thing, though. My last name is Orchard. When my husband & I got married, he told me we would NEVER decorate with apples! lol Didn't want to be a cliche!
I noticed the other day that I don't even design with apples, etc. either! Ahwell. :)

General Discussion / Re: Plus Size Pretty and Sexy
« on: August 23, 2010, 10:30:57 AM »
I'm not plus size, but I'm close and it's hard for me to find tops that are flattering that don't look like maternity tops!! It drives me absolutely insane to put something on & then think "Oh but if I wear this, people will be wondering when the baby is due."
Just because I've had children & have a little 'mama tummy' doesn't mean I want to look pregnant for the rest of my life. ;)

I doubt this is helpful at all, but that's my 2 cents! I wish you luck in your endeavor to make all women pleased with what they're wearing! :)
