  • Sold my first piece

    I think I want to cry.

    I made Bubbles, the cow gumball machine. The pattern was on the back of the Meisel flyer (I think) I got a couple of months ago. I brought her to work, just because I thought she would be fun to have on my desk. Well, one of the women I work with wanted her for her nephew's birthday tomorrow. I would have just made her another one, but didn't really have the time. So I sold her Bubbles.

    Now I have an order for another one. It's a great feeling to sell something, but I had a real hard time deciding. I know I could just make another one for myself, but it's still hard, especially with it being the first one.

    Thanks for listening while I babble.

      CONGRATS! Isn't it exciting when someone actually thinks you do work good enough they want to buy it? To me that's the highest form of compliment one can receive!! Who knows, you may have a new career making gumball machines! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

          Idiot me forgot to take a picture of the finished cow. I've got pics of it before I painted it. I'm going to ask if the person who bought it would please take a pic for me, so I can add it to my portfolio at home.

          I need to get a few posted, it's just so SLOW with dial-up at home. It's awful. One of these days I'll get around to posting them. That's the only drawback I can find to living in the country, no DSL.

              Hi Kelly
              It is always nice when people like your work enough to buy it. I had a few people in the past think that my work was lazer cut.

                I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...

                I think that it important for any business to keep track of what their customers are concerned about. If a business ignores such things, they will suffer in the long run. Ignoring comments in your own forum or not replying to emails is not a good strategy. Good companies are always on the lookout...

                Thanx Rolf. I also found a package of Olson 3/0 blades I had. They are 33TPI x .008T x .022W
                I’m guessing that’s their equivalent of a puzzle blade since they don’t sell one specifically labeled as such....

                Are there specific issues about how the patterns are printed that cause everyone problems? If not, whatever they change made to make some of you happy will make others unhappy. I prefer things published at 100% if practical.

                Maybe what's needed is a comprehensive article with all the possible...
