I just figured out that ama_crafts was old.

Okay, AMA artists... if you sell your work, how do you advertise it? Does it seem to work well? Is it free or inexpensive?

I kind of just asked the same question in AMA.

This is my work, by the way:

Suppose I should post here for once...

Over the Christmas break, my girlfriend graciously posed in front of the camera for an idea I've wanted to try out for a while now. This was just experimenting.. I'm not all too pleased with the final product but this was more of a dry run to see how easy it would be to do.

What is something that is currently bringing you inspiration? Why? Bonus points for Pictures/sounds/excerpts/whatever!

Bird Feeders

These are rough prototypes to see how the birds get on with them. Next time definitely no glaze except, perhaps, the tray for easier cleaning. With a few wires it should be simple to get it to hang. Next post with a bird in there (perhaps).

Bonsai

My first attempt at growing a bonsai, out in the rain this morning.

I went through and updated tags on entries to make things easier to find, and added some new tags to the list! I *think* that right now everyone can tag their own entries, so if there is something that you wanted added to the list, let me or one of the other mods know. :)

And just to include something, I wanted to share one of my favorite photos that I took last summer at my grandparent's lake house in Maine. The fact that the picture came out nicely is a total fluke because I just have a regular point-and-shoot camera, but it's one that I love to look at.

Finish the biggest project of your knitting career, of course.
