  1. This is 'acaseofrandom' right? If so ignore it, I'm surprised she's still getting away with that. She had some pics of my scale flowers removed from my Flickr account claiming infringement and I contested it. My pics were restored and despite her threatening me with lawyers (they did send me an email which was full of empty threats and after I responded to that they replied with a 'let's come to an arrangement' which was basically them backing down), I haven't heard from her again.

    lorenzo on MAIL first made scale flowers and he has a Canadian Creatives Commons License on them which predates and overrides her copyright. if you are at all worried by her copyright claims just mention lorenzo's CC liencse.

    Here's a link to the legal code of the creative commons licence.


    lorenzo's Canadian copyright registration # is 1079600 also valid in the US.

  2. I've actually made remembrance poppies from TRLs scales since last year and I found these broach backs that have 3 holes in them pics below. This is the first one I've made with a leaf and it looks messy at the back, something I need to work on but connecting the flower neatly was easy. The backs came from ebay, like these: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/job-lot-jewellery-making-broach-back-findings-/140469435929?pt=UK_Crafts_JewelleryMaking_GL&hash=item20b4a17e19



  3. I wrote that tut and gave it to MAIL, the rings sizes I used are: 1.6mm (16 gauge SWG, 14 gauge AWG) 10mm ID (0.39inch) and 6.7mm ID (0.26 inch). You can alter these sizes slightly and if you use the 10mm ID rings for all the rings you can easily make the 6 petal version.

    These sizes work well for the overlapping petals but if don't overlap all the petals you will have more scope to use different size rings. I haven't tried any other sizes but hopefully this is still helpful.

  4. Quick question about points. I have, according to my account, bought enough to have 239 points but it also says on my account that I have '130 total points accumulated' and '130 points remaining".

    So why is there a difference between the points on what I've bought and the points I have accumulated when I haven't used any?


  5. Maillers Worldwide have now gotten rid of the annoying adverts down the right hand side of the pages, hooray!

    This means there is now space there available to rent to advertise related businesses and products. I am very keen to keep the ads relevant so some may not make it.

    There is a test ad there to show that we can add text and pics and if you have an advert you'd like to place that is designed and ready to go I would just need you to send it to me in a .JPG format. Ideally send me the whole ad as a .JPG and then it will appear exactly as you want it to.

    An ad the size of the test ad will be $6 (£4) a month and an ad double that size will be $10 (£7) a month. The text, pic and/or whole design can be sent to me via email and once the ad is placed I will send a money request via Paypal.

    After one month I will send out reminders to renew, replace or remove.

    All proceeds will go into running the MWW site and contribute to competition prizes.

    Happy mailling

  6. As an archer myself, both in my hobby and in my job, that would terrify me to shoot. I shoot mostly longbow, and know from building strings, that your armguard would shred a string, especially if it caught a poorly done connection. However, it looks fantastic, and as said before, adding a strip of leather 2 or 3 inches wide for the length of it would solve your problem... unless you torqued your wrist, then you might catch a stray ring...

    I agree with this, the thought of shooting with this bracer is a little frightening. An archery bracer really should have smooth inside. Other than that it looks good.
