Promoting on Etsy Making treasuries

I understand we all have little time . I went on Etsy today to check out treasuries . I did a regular serch here : http://www.etsy.com/treasury/search/?search_query=primitive&search_submit=&search_type=treasury for primitive treasuries .
 In all honesty , groups should have at least 5 gals doing treasuries everyday , to keep prims out there . I would try to have them 2 hours apart . everyday .
 It is free promotion , and it really does not take that long to do .
It keeps prims in the front  . When there are no treasuries , it gets put way back . Just trying to help promote girls . (-:

Beer Bottle Craftin !

What would you do with these ?
Now , I don't care for beer much , but found these today . Hubs called home on lunch and I told him , I want to buy more , but who is going to drink the beer ? He is not a drinker , maybe once in a while . So do I dump it out , or does anyone have recipes that include beer ??
I just want the bottles for craftin ! Any craftin ideas ??

Have a fun filled day !

To the gal who hides behind her emails / Quote of the day

Normal people discuss things openly and try to educate themselves on what is right . Instead of posting here , you keep emailing me , like a coward . My posts were to learn from and at this point you are not learning anything , other than wanting to defend a certain ebay group .
Being that it has been proven , you might want to educate yourself on what the law says about reprinting patterns , over and over , for resale .

I would ask you how old you are but I know you can't count that high.

It is a shame my last post on pattern theft

I have been spending a beautiful day inside doing alot of research . I want to start this by say , I respect all pattern designers , and know that it is hard work . I am not taking away from anyone as a designer .
This subject could go on and on , and could be interpreted in many ways . I strongly believe that buying a pattern , then reprinting repeatedly is wrong . Yes there are groups doing this .
I also see alot of patterns that come out looking alot like another designer . Meaning , It looks like they copied but tweaked it to be their own .
I also see alot of the MC Calls Butterick patterns and so on that look like people have copied from them and tweaked to make their own  .
I also see original designs and know they are legit .
So copying an idea , pattern and tweaking it is just about the same .
So who has the originals and who really designed ?
I will purchase from who I know is legit and make sure they are not copies .
Thanks so much for the enlightenment on this subject .

Pattern Designers Please read Questions on Pattern Theft

I understand how bad of a subject this is . I also want to know , a few things .
I know that there is a group who are reselling patterns , that they have reprinted , many times , on ebay . Now I am seeing something about digital patterns being stolen .
First off , I have bought directly from the designer , and have for years . I buy both types and do not resell my patterns . I have resold Mcalls and other brand names .
I asked about a seller on ebay , and was told , that she was selling patterns she purchased and that was ok . Now I see her in the spotlight for stealing . ?? She gives the name of the designer , and designs herself .
I am wondering if , what is being said , is , that you can not sell a pattern that you no longer use or want ??
As of now , I can honestly say that , I am close to not buying any . As a buyer we are getting put out there for buying a used pattern .It is understandable if the person selling has more than 1 copy of a pattern , but when they do not , I assume it is one they purchased and no longer use or want . But from what I am reading is , that it is not ok , to buy used patterns ??
I have stood behind the gals who have been stolen from . I actually found out the hard way about ATP and put them out there for it in my feedback . Mind you I have received nasty emails from people that do not like the fact that I gave them negative Feedback .
So at this point after being told the gal , I buy used patterns from is also being put out here as a thief , I believe , I will just mail the pattern to the appropriate designer , and not buy patterns again .
I have been honest about this and been emailing one of the gals who is a designer , to know what is what . So please girls , maybe get together and post some rules of what is ok ?
I will contact the gals for the last 4 patterns and send them to the owner . I did not know you couldn't buy a used pattern

Thanks
Deb

The Lookout Crew

I was up early this morning and My fur babies were on the lookout . They climbed up atop of the arbor for my wisteria watching out for the other unfriendly critters .
What a crew .
