I'm saving this thread and hopefully one day we can have a "show" on GLP and maybe rack up a little dough for Trinity as well as a few bucks for ourselves and other worthy causes:)


GREAT idea! I love it! Wonder if Trinity would go for it?

I know that etsy is creating a "Group" function. I think it's in beta testing.

Team GLP anyone? Seriously, would anyone else join?


Oh yes! I have been waiting for it to happen :)
 Quoting: TVZ 1011620


If anyone is interested in starting a GLP group or team on etsy, feel free to convo me on etsy and I can start a list of interested people for when etsy groups goes live.

Of course, I'd have to clear it with Trinity first (I think), but I'm just curious if there's enough interest to even warrant the creation of a group...

Here's my etsy if you want to convo me: [link to www.etsy.com]

GLP'ers generally seem like a pretty hands-on, do-it-yerself kind of bunch. I'm wondering if there are other crafty folks on here, and I'd love to hear about your art / craft mediums and projects.

I love working with wool in just about any form. I crochet, needle felt, sew, felt and upcycle wool blankets and sweaters, and most recently I screen print.

What do you like to do?

The earth scene was created using only a 2D map of the earth and some effects.

The other scene went from paper to the computer, then each item was separated, colored, and then animated--that took the most time.

This was actually my first real motion graphic project... I've never done another one but I hope to use the skills I learned to create informational videos on very complex philosophical concepts... creating animation really assists the learning process.

A lot of it was made in Second Life as well.

So, you said you used to make money with Second Life. How does that work? Do you create virtual things and sell them? If so, are they "things" like accesories and clothing? Or virtual places? How does that work?

 Quoting: ~fish out of water~


You can sell anything you make in Second Life for the in game currency.

Then you can sell the currency for USD $.

You can make anything you imagine, anything.

I made a lot selling club items like virtual club lights, speakers, DJ gear, dance machines.

Eventually I got contracted to build whole islands for a bunch of companies.

Just wanted to say, "Thanks!" to everyone who responded to this thread. I had no idea there were so many other etsy-ians here and so much general talent - both in 2-D and 3-D mediums.

Have to go burn some screens and finish making bread, but I'll check back periodically.

There has got to be money in making items for niche fetish groups, I would imagine. Just knowing how many guys have unfulfilled fetishes in real life and how popular that site is... (Sorry if that's OT)

It's not really a website, but a game world.

You have to use a program to access in world.

There is a search function in game.

It's very elaborate and probably for a while you just want to get used to the controls and building tools.

I'm usually around lately, re-building my shop.

Hit me up in game if you need some pointers.

If you just want to get an idea of the items people sell, you can use the web based marketplace.

native american stone fetishes and 'peace' pipes, 'totem' poles (real name translates to spirit poles)...even built a custom dune buggy and motorcycle...once.
needless to say...i have a lifetime's collection of tools and know how to use every one of them...

I did watercolors for years, I've sold most of them.
Currently I am into making collages ... I call it expression art.
Most of the collages are upbeat and very positive however I have a huge one I am working on made of 2008 presidential campaign signs.
That one isn't so positive. I am not sure I will ever display it in public. Kind of afraid I could red flag myself.

I'm not so much into crafting, but sometimes make some quirky repurposed things.
I took some cool old yo-yo's and turned them into chimes of a sort. A neighbor commented how much she liked it right after we moved in.
A very large painting wasn't right for the walls in the new place, so I used it as a headboard. Looks great.
Other than that, I buy cheap remnants of material- upholstery type, and use them as slip covers, throws, curtains.
