Destash / Re: Getting rid of my aunts supplies!
« on: June 12, 2012, 11:59:25 AM »
Thanks guys! It has been slow going, I am considering dumping the supply store and offering all the supplies for a one time price on craigslist or Ebay, but who has $5K to dump down these days. I tried to sell all the charms in one listing, 780 charms for $150 no even a nibble!

Business Tips and Help / Get your own .com

I just purchased my shop name .com(link is below) and I wanted to share what I learned in the process.
I first started with a FREE website from weebly.com and built it myself. It was very easy and they have great tools to add links, blog, and multiple pages. Weebly wanted $35 a year to purchase my .com so until I could afford to do that I kept the free site which was DesertStarCreations.weebly.com, not too bad. Then I remembered the silly GODaddy commercials and went to their site. I was able to purchase www.desertstarcreations.com from them for $18 for 3 YEARS! Big price difference! I even got help in the form of quick responses in email from Weebly and GoDaddy to have my free site renamed without the weebly in it. It was surprisingly easy, I just had to tell the domain what IP address to point to. I know almost nothing when it comes to web and internet. I know my way around computers and I am very handy when it comes to tech stuff but I was nervous about the internet/domain names and pointing my domain to an IP address but it was easy. GODaddy was very easy and helpful, I cant recommend them enough! SO if you have been thinking of doing your own site, get a free weebly one started and for $20 get the .com at GoDaddy. A few hours of playing on Weebly and you are set.
This is my new web site and I am very happy with how it all worked out.
Good luck to all!

PS. you get one free email for that domain as well so you can now email me at

Now that looks professional!

Hi Stacy, you may want to put your name in your signature so everyone doesn't end up calling you Crazy! I went and hunted it down. I am trying to post here more. I have an Art Fire shop and I post  more in their forums but this is a great group and I need to stop in more often. Nice to meet you!

Hey guys! I have had my supplies store up for 6 months now and I dont nearly put the time into it as I should but I wanted to let people know that I am now listing custom made earring cards with your logo and photo editing. If you have anything listed online you know how important photos are and how they can make you crazy. I have been taking and editing photos for years and I am now offering to take your RAW files and correct, crop and retouch them to make them the best possible using Photoshop. For more info please see my Art Fire listings. Thanks!

Jewelry / A new look to a woven bracelet
« on: July 02, 2011, 12:47:22 PM »
This piece took a little time, I followed direction in Bead Style Mag but the bracelet it longer than they said it would be and I dont think I can sell it. It is 8 inches long. I am going to try to do another one but use one less crown and put a extension chain on it. SO what do I do with the 8 inch one? Just use as a show piece? Waiting for your ideas.
Thanks!
