Hey! This week is Blog Post I, talking about interior design! An example is made is the Polyvore post of interior design in a bedroom.
Basically, how I made that Polyvore set, and also how I design any room, is by choosing a piece I really love, in this case the bed. I worked off of that, pulling colors and styles.
Blog post H is about Headbands. Headbands are a cute accessory that you can wear with an updo or a down do. I will post pictures of headbands above.
Blog Post G is about Pantone’s Color of the Year, Emerald Green. As the name would suggest, Pantone chooses a color to be represented as the Color of the Year.
The announcement about the Color of the Year is released at the start of each year. The Color of the Year plays into a lot of different industries. There are the obvious ones, including fashion and interior design. I will give you examples of emerald green in those industries later. But what about makeup design? They wouldn’t make emerald green lipstick (that would look weird)… but they do have eye shadow in that color. So, Have Fun Exploring Color Combos!
Blog post F is about Flip Flops. Some cute and crafty flip flop ideas are water balloon flip flops, you can make flip flops wreaths, hot glue a cute flower at the top of your flip flop, or just buy a cute pair of flip flops and wear them. There are many different ways to style flip flops so whatever you do just stay stylish and wear cute flip flops! There will be pictures above. But be careful, studies have shown flip flops can damage feet.
This week, E stands for Etsy. Etsy is kind of like the buy now button on EBay, except EBay doesn’t sponsor them. And, Etsy only carries home/handmade items made by real people like you. People on Etsy sell everything from jewelry to placemats. See? Everything. All you have to do to get started on Etsy is sign up for an account (age 18+) and start shopping/selling! All the rest of you (17-) will have to have a parent get an Etsy account so they can buy and sell your stuff. You just have to make sure your parents will give you the money they (sorta) made. 😉 Etsy uses PayPal too, or you can use their non-third party method (through Etsy). Etsy doesn’t condemn you if you use or don’t use either method, which is nice. Etsy’s non-third party method costs 3% of your earnings plus 25 cents. PayPal charges only 2%. For both methods of payment, you will need to pay the shipping costs the buyer has listed for that item. Well, that’s all I really have to say about Etsy. If you need more info, Bing your question. They should answer it. So, if you are the creative type -Happy Selling otherwise Happy Buying!
