This month has been a month of Halloween crafts, there's still one left to come on Friday. I also posted a bonus video showing the first 15 pages of my doodle quote book so if you haven't already checke them out 😃 www.youtube.com/retrofaerie
I am going to be taking a couple of weeks to get YouTube in order. I want a proper schedule for my tutorials and want to get back to once a week rather than once a fortnight.
I have loads of ideas for tutorials and want to get a few done in advance so I don't get behind again if I have a busy week one week.
I also need to update this site to make sure all of my tutorials are on here.
And while doing all of that I still have to make a lot of things for a comic con in November.
Hopefully it wont take me too long to get sorted. see you soon :)
Today I came across one of my tutorials from my old channel but it was on a different channel. Someone had downloaded my original video, cut off the first few secs that said it was by retrofaerie and then uploaded it as their own.
Two of my videos were uploaded to that channel. They have been reported so I hope the videos are taken down soon, but what makes people think they can get away with it, it's totally ridiculous.
It's one of my worst quality videos but it was also the first candy wrapper purse tutorial in English on YouTube so it has a lot of views so I'm wondering if that was the reason they chose to copy it.
Hope it doesn't happen again.
Happy crafting :)
Just an update on my logo cross stitch design, I only started on it this evening and so far it's not looking too bad but there's a long way to go :)
We are in the last week of the year, that means sales :) you will find selected items in my store at 30% OFF, more will be added over the next few days, the sale will run to 7th Jan 2015!
On other news 7th of January is also the date that I start uploading to YouTube again, everything is planned and ready to go, the uploading will go back to being every other Wednesday.
if you have been pigging out on sweets over the holidays, keep some of the wrappers because they will com in handy in my first tutorial, which will be a mini candy wrapper keychain purse.
Sorry it's not a great picture but this is what I will be making.
The things you will need for this are
large split ring (Key Chain Hoop)
Last year I made tree decorations batman themed and I've just made a simple wreath to match the tree an here it is :)
Things haven't been going to plan lately and life got in the way of making things lol but I am getting all sorted and should be back to filming next week and a tutorial should be out the week after. I am planning to film a few tutorials so I am always a head just in case there's a week I can't do one. If I manage to get far enough a head I will go back to uploading every Wednesday instead of every other Wednesday.
I will also be doing a Q&A video of the most asked questions like "can I use your tutorial to make my own and sell?" (answer is yes) so if there is anything you want answered then leave a comment with your question, I will be filming it on the 25th Aug. If your reading it after that you can still use the "Contact Me Page" or comment on the video and I will reply asap.
After my break I had loads of things planned but bad timing strikes again and I got ill :(
I haven't been able to start any of the projects I wanted to and only today I've only just been well enough just to design a few things (plastic canvas bags)
Hopefully in a couple of days I will be better and I can really start working on new tutorials for YouTube.
Thank you for sticking around in this quiet time.
150 of my keyring were sent down to the London Film & Comic Con, I wonder how many will go unsold?
I always get nervous about this sort of thing because I never know if people like the things I make or not as I only get a small amount of feedback and also from past experiences I have noticed a lot of people are only interested in my products when they are free.
Anywho either way I have a couple of ideas for some completely new items for my store and tutorials for YouTube. The idea I have in my head I haven't seen anywhere else so I really have not idea how people will react to them but its going to be fun making them :)
Happy Crafting :)
As you can see this site has had a revamp and I would like your opinions on it, it's a bit more of a clean cut layout that I have done before.
Does it look better?
Does it look boring?
All comments good and bad are welcome :)
this will be the place to find out about what's coming next, what's on our minds and general brainstorming and talking to ourselves so feel free to join in the conversation!
