Selling to Junkman's Daughter? [11 Apr 2008|11:28pm]

I know Junkman's Daughter sells items from local artists, and it occurred to me that the jewelry I make is very much in line with their style. I was wondering if anyone here has sold through them before and how it works. They jack up the prices on everything so much that whatever percentage they would pay me is probably more than I'd get on ebay, and a lot easier.

Anyone willing to mentor? [23 Jan 2008|06:16pm]

I'm a high school student, and we have a little number called "The Senior Project" that I'm working on this semester. We have to learn how to do something that is a stretch for us, and since I'm usually all in the fabric department, I decided to try my hand at bookbinding.


Is there anyone willing to be my mentor? I live in Marietta and you can contact me at taciturndoll@yahoo.com if you're interested.
Or if you have anyone in mind that would be of help to me, please let me know!!

Thank you!!

(if this is illegal, delete away. I apologize.)

Atlanta Craft Mafia! [16 Jan 2008|12:31pm]

The rumors are true, but don't worry, there won't be any glue-gun wars! The Atlanta branch of the Craft Mafia has indeed changed hands, and we're throwing a party to introduce ourselves.
You are invited!

When: Saturday, February 2nd 1-6pm
Where: Park Grounds coffeehouse in Reynoldstown
Who: The 7 friendly faces behind the new Atlanta Craft Mafia
What: Tasty treats to eat and drink, Crafty demos with a make-and-take table, Meet the "Family" and learn what we're all about.
Why: We'd like to make you an offer you can't refuse!

The NEW Atlanta Craft Mafia was re-formed in the fall of 2007 by seven local independent crafters with a strong DIY ethic, a shared love for all things crafty and a belief in the beauty of all things hand-made. The Atlanta Craft Mafia seeks to provide support and resources for other members of the Atlanta crafting community through public events, networking opportunities and collaborative marketing.

So apparently, in kid-land, there's this whole deal about having an elf come visit your house during Christmas. Red (the kid I nanny) wants one of these magic elves to come visit her house, so her mother asked me to help out. Apparently the first step in this adventure is an "Elf Contract" direct from the North Pole. I didn't get a picture of the final thing, with the second page and the "Santa's seal" I made, but I'll get one tomorrow when I see Red. Her elf's name is Edweena Pearl (I didn't name it) and she is the nature elf who takes care of Santa's reindeer.

I'm posting this to a few of my crafting/scrapbooking/bookmaking communities, so please forgive me, but it's terribly important. If it needs to be erased, please let me know and I'll do so.

I know that a lot of you only make items for yourselves, or usually make items to sell, but I have a request. I need paper cards, postcards, little felted cards, small books, pressed flowers, etc, etc, etc. Wait! Don't stop reading! I'm not exactly just asking for a handout. I have good reason...

First, I'll explain what it's for:

Early last week, my grandfather called in tears saying that he had called 911 and that my grandmother wasn't breathing. We met my them at the hospital and she's been there ever since. They moved her last night, after a bad coughing fit, into the ICU and had to put her on an oxygen bypass machine this evening.

She has a condition called Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD brought on my cigarette smoking. The 50+ years of smoking has caused her to develop asthma and chronic bronchitis, which has slowly deteriorated her lungs. She will have to be on an oxygen tank for the rest of her life. She's worried, scared, and just really down about the entire ordeal. She's upset and really needs something to help keep her going.

Now this is where you all come in. I know that she loves getting mail and has really been perking up whenever she gets a "get well soon" card or flowers. Unfortunately, our extended family isn't exactly the card or trinket sending type, so she's only gotten a few of them. I know there are a lot of US as well as international people in these communities, and because she's never gotten to travel a whole lot, I was hoping that some of you guys might want to send her a little something from where you're from.

Anything, even a storebought postcard with your town on it would be great, but if any of you want to make a card or something with pictures or little tidbits about your state/country, I know she'd just love it. It'd be like her getting to visit those places. If you'd like to include hopes for her to get well or some inspiring quotes and things like that, that'd b great, too. I think she'd love reading something like that and would be especially touched that strangers would take the time to do it for her.

If you'd like to participate, you can send the items to:

Mrs. R. Loretta Christopher
991 Chadwick Park Drive
Lawrenceville Ga 30045

Just in case anyone wants them, this is a small list of things she likes:
Roses, crossword puzzles, plants of any kind, travelling, hawaii, gardening, family, american idol, taylor hicks, days of our lives (the soap opera), cats

Please feel free to pass this around to friends and family, scrapbooking groups, prayer groups, etc.

Thank you so much in advance to anyone who is comfortable doing this. You have no idea how much I appreciate all of you! I don't say it enough, but I really do love all of these communities and the inspirational things posted here are always so wonderful!


Because of the amount of interest, I made a community specifically for this. Please feel free to check it out here:
