Why is this etsy thing so hard?

I recently stumbled upon the site Etsy, Im sure you have heard of it but if not here is the link: www.etsy.com Is there some trick to selling. I feel as though most of the people who go there are creative people or fellow instructable members who can make their own things. So, what product would you want  to purchase online that is handmade? Also I just opened my account: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AlfredoSG

Is there away to fill in these huge gaps in this wood frame?

I have this mirror that I like but it came with these huge overly sized lamps attached to it which I didn't particularly like and removed, which has left it with two large gaps in the frame. Is there a way to fill in these holes where I could possibly just paint over it so everything looks even or some sort of creative way to fill them in? here is what it looks like. front http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a152/Meghan_l_d/DIY/DSCN1239.jpg?t=1275868085 close up of gap http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a152/Meghan_l_d/DIY/DSCN1241.jpg?t=1275868112 back http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a152/Meghan_l_d/DIY/DSCN1242.jpg?t=1275868112

Cool Crafty CREATIONS (for little & big peeps of all ages)

As a new mom (of six months) to a beautiful baby girl, Madeline Ann, I LOVE how I can merge my passion of creating and parenting together! Right now, I create big girl things for myself still mostly & cute things for my tiny tot. I love checking other creative momma's ideas out. (or creative people's creations', period) I started a blog www.kreativekatiekonnect.blogspot.com and I've learned that blogging as a new mom is HARD! I just can't find the time to be as consistent as I like and haven't really gotten the knack of documenting all of my projects, photographing each step, editing, writing, posting & then SHARING hoping for followers. Maybe, folks in this group who have a little blogging experience can help me out with this.  This group is made by Me for You creative folks who love to make/create almost anything & everything. (From drawing potraits, photography, any cool crafting, sewing, mod podging, refurbishing & the list could keep going to infinity, really!) I have been refurbishing old furniture lately, painting & personalizing mailboxes, creating really cool stuff for my little one & TRYING to sew a few things here and there for her (and would love to for myself). I am hoping I can share some of my ideas with you and vice versa!  I love new ideas & I really hope you will join up with me and share yours along with enjoying one's that I share with you! Please excuse my POOR grammatical errors and lack of good writing/typing.  It's difficult to type while holding a baby, rocking, ect. LOL So, bare with me & excuse my writing, but appreciate my creativity because I CAN'T WAIT to see your creations. (or anything you share) Xoxo Katie Let's link up EVERYWHERE: Yay =-) : *Follow me on twitter @TheKatiePett  *Like me on Facebook  www.facebook.com/KreativeKatieKonnect *Check my blog out and pls share your thoughts: www.kreativekatiekonnect.blogspot.com Also, if you have a blog, twitter, or facebook page- please share w/ me and I will totally follow you and keep up with you! I'm a devoted fan once I meet ya! :) #FanOFcreativity

Awesome Embroidery

Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of embellishment to take something from plain and everyday to something of a conversation starter. This is an excellent example and I think the simplicity in it is inspiring. Crafty Embroidery

Pyramid of Candy!

This was put together for my little sister's 8th birthday party :) Just get crafty type foam (like the white type for floral arrangements) and cut circles (or squares or triangles etc.) of decreasing size. Hot glue together....Then, hot glue on those fun sized candies (just a little dab). You know, the kind you discovered to be not so very fun unless you're eight years old :) This makes it easy for people to pull the candies off and keeps the arrangement nice and tidy.Vodka and Cranberry Juice for the adults.... kidding :P

Idea

This is one of those ideas that I came up with yet unfortunately I don't think that I will have the time nor effort to complete it. Yet I would love to see it come into fruition, and that's why I've decided to explain it here. What I would like to see is some crafty individual take the concept of the bristle bot and simply increase the magnitude of the dimensions and make it into a ride-able craft. This also could possibly be entered into the big and small challenge. Any questions that you might come up with I will gladly answer.

Automatic Button Pusher

Guys, I'm dyin here, this should be such an abvious creation! I need to create a simple mechanism to repeatedly push a button on a Playstation 3 controller. Doesnt have to be quick at all, even every few minutes would work, be it has to be able to repeadedly press a button for a few hours at a time. I figured I would go Homer style and grab myself a trendy little dipping or drinking bird, but figured it would be reliable enough to keep up for a few hours. Seems terribly trivial, but that's whats driving me so crazy to figure out a solution?! Any crafty McGuyver's out there want to take a stab at it?

Need your ideas on how to make a wall display case for thomas mini trains

Hi, after buying these little trains for my son, I decided to collect them in order to complete the collection, so they need a home on the wall, if not on the wall in some kind of cabinet where they can be easily displayed. I am not very crafty when it comes to these things but if I spend enough time I think I can build something, but I need some ideas to get started. They take up 2" x 1.5" space, and fit perfectly in 32 slot (30 of them) bead storage cases: https://www.michaels.com/10468278.html Thanks in advance.

Laundry room with no exterior walls in need of a better dryer exhaust solution! Ideas?

I have a dryer with an exhaust vent that could not possible exit my condo as it is in a stack in the very center of my unit; moreover, even with a crafty snaking of ventilation piping couldn't get it near an exterior wall.  As you can guess, when I dry my clothes the utility room turns into a sauna and all of my walls develop condensation from the hot air and water vapor the dryer is using and extracting.  Does anyone have any good ideas for how I could reduce the condensation build-up or even alleviate the problem?  I thought of making some sort of dispersal fan to cool the hot dryer air as it exits the dryer, but I am not sold on this idea.

So I've got this brick...

Sometime last year I received a brick that is very special to me. It came from the outside of the old technology wing of my school when they were knocking it down to make way for the new building, and I have a lot of great memories from those rooms. The only problem is...well...it's a big red brick. Its only current function is as a doorstop to my bedroom which I stub my toe on each time I enter. I'm growing sick and tired of it but I don't want to get rid of it either. I figured I might do something crafty with it instead, but unfortunately other than the creative application of paint and glue to make it a less-than-charming piece I can put on my shelf, I'm drawing a blank. Does anyone have any ideas?
