CBD | Selling CBD Products on Craftrina Handmade

Keep hearing the word CBD? For those of you who have, but aren’t exactly sure what CBD is— we encourage you to take a moment to read our easy to understand explanation.  CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It's obtained from cannabis plants through the process of extraction (intense pressure). Now, here’s the thing—just because it's is extracted from hemp-based and cannabis plants, it does not in any way have psychoactive effects as its cousin THC. THC is short for Tetrahydrocannabinol which is a psychotropic cannabinoid derived from the cannabis marijuana plant. It's is actually one of more than 100 compounds found in cannabis plants. Hemp which has been grown under the industrial hemp farming act and used in CBD products contains 0.3% or less THC. So, in other words—it’s not going to get you ‘high’.   Health...

Crochet Design | Understanding Crochet Instructions

crochet design craftrina 9
At first glance, crochet design and crochet instructions can appear to be quite intimidating. However, if you think of crochet instructions in terms of a recipe: follow the instructions one step at a time. Sometimes we read complicated recipes before we start cooking in order to get a better understanding of the cooking project ahead of you. For simpler recipes, we might only need to focus on one step at a time. The same process goes for reading and understanding crochet instructions. It doesn’t matter which route you take, as long as you remember that the purpose of crochet patterns is to help us create something gorgeous, not to scare or intimidate us. Crochet instructions consist of abbreviations, punctuation marks, symbols and terms. In a way you could say crochet has its own language. Think of it as crochet shorthand—it’s a...

Sell on Etsy? Nope—Build your own website and kick a#s!

etsy craftrina
Etsy—open a shop or build your own website and kick a#s! The whole reason we sell our handmade goods online and offline is to make a little extra money on the side. I think most makers would agree that they would like to eventually quit their 9-5 jobs and launch their own handmade shop. Unfortunately, many makers won't due to marketing challenges and technical factors involved. All too often I hear makers sharing these fears about leaving Etsy. Why are they so afraid? It’s simple—they won’t venture away from Etsy to start their own website in fear they won’t be found in the big World Wide Web. And of course, they have every reason to be fearful, after all, it’s their small business on line.  Among these fearful makers, many don’t realize the long-term harm their causing. How could that be? Think about it—the larger Etsy’s...
