Crafty Poll – Oooops? What now? May 9, 2010

Hey Crafty Ladies & Gents – I have a little poll for you. What do you do with your seconds? By seconds I mean stuff you aren’t excited about, stuff that doesn’t meet your high level of standard?

Working with material sometimes I run into an issue where the fabric placement doesn’t excite me on the final product or my corners didn’t turn nicely and appear to rounded. Often because of the repeat on the fabric my characters might appear upside down right smack in the center of a coffee sleeve or not at all.

This is the case today for one of my new Mug Huggers – which I thought I would giveaway here on my blog. It is still super cute, it just wasn’t perfect, it was missing the major character of Alice. The only sign of our heroine is her upside down feet in the second picture. The mug hugger is all black with black stitching, the small pictures are white with a small touch of gold shimmer. It really is a whimsical beauty, perfect for any child at heart or fan of the original classic.

So here’s the deal, no crazy hoops to jump through.  Just leave a comment & email address and you’ll be up to win a cute Mug Hugger of your own. If in your comment you suggest another venue or idea for my ‘ooops’ I’ll be eternally grateful.

Tara xoxo

Well it seems as though its been a horendously long day of setting up this new blog. Granted I’m using a pre-done layout & theme, but I’m still finding in insanely frustrating.

There is this weirdo problem using the text/html and it no matter what I try it will not display my Etsy Mini OR my Artfire Rapid cart. Now I’ve tried it many times, I’ve even tried closing Chrome and trying in IE (which I loathe). Maybe on a new day I’ll be able to get it running.

So what are your thoughts? Do you like the new WordPress Boutique Karma look & feel? If I ignore the Etsy Mini issue I’m loving it 🙂

love all the fun features and I look forward to looking into them all a little deeper in the future.
