Creative Creations / Lovely New Handbound Writing Journal
« on: January 29, 2013, 09:59:17 AM »
This is somewhat of a step outside the norm for me as I usually am drawn to eye-popping color but I love the fabric on this one!

« on: January 19, 2013, 01:40:13 AM »
I hope that by posting this here that it doesn't get promoted automatically - it's just a 2013 project I am working on. . .finally getting back to my paints - Finally filling one of my own journals with a series of 40 entries - music related. Wanted to share my first 3 so far (will add to this same thread as they happen so I don't flood the gallery with my follies):

George Harrison - Within You Without You 1967


Joshua Kadison - Painted Desert Serenade 1993 (Sweet, sweet song BTW)

Joni Mitchell - Big Yellow Taxi 1970

Theme: Make a highlight that contains ITEMS starting with the first initial of your first name, for example mine is "A" and my highlight contains an Amber necklace, an Apple photo, an Ant sculpture - you may use a color that begins with your initial (like Azure or Aubergine) but that's as far as we'll stretch it.

Site Support / [ON LIST] Coupon Code
« on: October 13, 2012, 10:47:44 PM »
I did a search on coupon codes to see if this had already been addressed and either it hasn't or I missed it but (I apologize if it had!) I was wondering if there were any chance of adding a "free shipping" coupon option when setting up the coupon? I am running one to a group to ship free and figured out the percentage as close as I could get but it would be a lot easier if there were that option.


Not high on the priority list I know but thought I'd ask

This will go from July 29-Aug 5 at 6pm
Once this one is finished it would be awesome if someone else would host the next. All you'd need to do is pick a theme and provide a small prize to the winner. It could be anything, not even necessarily something you make, it could be a small set of note cards, pretty beads etc. small but nice, something you'd like to receive and won't cost much to send.


Directions on making a highlight can be found here: http://handmadeartists.com/forum/index.php/topic,7173.msg85092.html#msg85092 Any questions just ask. Post your entry links here and go drum up some comments!


Tip: it might help to spend a few minutes messaging the artists you include in your entry - they may be able to help boost your count by commenting and sharing! ;)
