:bulletgreen: You can join in The Great Tutorial Round-Up! which might be a monthly event. Read more about it here The Great Tutorial Round-Up!Hello, my fellow artisans and crafters! :w00t: 
I have to tell you, it feels downright unreal, being your Community Volunteer. I've been in the community for a while and I know my wonderful and amazing predecessors. It's almost scary, I tell you: I have such big shoes to fill! As the "new guy" on the block, I've been thinking - how do I get more people more involved? Then... it struck me. 
Artisan crafts is all about the hands-on. We artisans and crafters are tinkerers at heart, engineers in disguise, chemists incognito and adventurers in spirit. We know that in order to create great art, we need to devote time and energy with trial-and-error. So, I figured I'd help the process along a little bit. A number of your fellow artisans and crafters have written wonderful tutorials to get you a head start into their field of expertise. So why not get them all under one umbrella for quick and easy perusal? So this is my "The Great Tutorial Round-up" casting call.

:bulletgreen: Two new AC categories have been created - 3D Printing and Floral Arrangements Announcing: Two New AC Categories!:bulletpink: Hi everyone! I'm here to announce two brand new categories to the Artisan Crafts gallery - not just for the CRArtisanCrafts group, but for all of DeviantArt! :dalove:
These are things us Artisan Crafts Community Volunteers (myself, Talty, Brookette, and cakecrumbs) have been working on for a very long time. I myself, personally, have been invested in this for over a year and a half, and I'm SO HAPPY it's finally done! :squee:
The first is 3D Printing!
3D Printing refers to processes used to create a three-dimensional object in which layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object.
This is something that we worked in tandem with the Digital arts CVs. It came down to the fact that because the items are physical they belong in the artisan galleries. It also reflects the fact that many 3D printed pieces go through intensive "post-processing" (if you will), where the 3D Printed "base" object goes through detail


:bulletgreen: You can see the monthly DDs roundup here Artisan DDs for August!Bullet; Pink Hi! Hello my sugar covered marshmallow chickens! If you're like me, with terrible internet, or if you're also like me, with no free time, then you might have missed checking the Daily Deviation page every day. Here's a kiss for you, my love! It's okay! I'm here for you! (By the way, you can see the page [here]!)
Here are all the beautiful things I had the honor of featuring on the front page in August. Love Please give them love if you haven't already. Drop them a comment of congratulations or just downright tell them how much you've been inspired! :D (Big Grin) Comments like that keep the artistic elements flowing!


:bulletgreen: This month's challenge theme at :iconcrartisancrafts: is Equines Monthly Feature Challenge: EQUINES:bulletpink: Hi everyone! First things first, you're probably noticing this fancy new CSS! :la: This recent change is to make up for the fact that I've been posting these challenges for a bit over a year and a half under my personal journals, rather than in an official capacity as an Artisan Craft Community Volunteer. :)
:bulletpink: Equines is a fancy way of saying horses and anything horse related. I'm chucking unicorns into this classification too, since they're usually pretty horse-like, even though many things can theoretically be unicorns. :lol: And you can count pegasi, centaurs, kelpies, and so on! While we're here, you can also count things like zebras and donkeys too. :la: I could write a little snippet of the history on equines for you here, but it's sort enough for me to say that while I find them to be gorgeous, intelligent creatures I just... don't really know that much about them. >.> Doesn't that I mean I should be teaching you guys?! Well, if you're interested, h

:bulletgreen: NevaSirenda posted two-part journal with tips on how to become a published crafter Tips on becoming a published crafter - Part 1Art in the Professions
Part One: First Contact! – or, How to Submit to a Publication
I became a professional craft designer almost accidentally. I had been a crafter all my life (an inherited gene that ran through my maternal line) but had not really given much thought to where all those great patterns came from. One of my favorite cross stitch magazines ran a contest every month for readers to try their hand at designing; just for fun I entered a few times and won first place on two occasions and runner-up on two more. Then came the perfect storm: It started with a hostile takeover at my day job that took place while I was on maternity leave, so when I came back to work I discovered I was out of a job. I needed a new job quickly, but was hoping for one that would allow me to spend more time with my new son. Coincidentally, a new cross stitch magazine was starting up just across town and was advertising for stitchers. This sounded ideal, so I called for

Part Two: Getting Your Name, and Project, in Print
Congratulations! Your design concept has been accepted for publication! Now, let's assemble all the things your editor is going to need in order to secure your spot in an upcoming issue.
First you will need to familiarize yourself with their formatting and write or draw your patterns or charts in the manner the editors prefer.
For crafts like knitting or crochet, this may be as simple as carefully studying the published patterns in that magazine and writing your pattern in the same format. For other crafts, like quilting, sewing or woodworking, you may be required to provide pattern pieces drawn to scale.
Make sure all the pieces are drawn to the same scale proportionally, and make sure they are cleanly drawn and easy to read.
If you can, draw them in a graphics program like Photoshop and submit a clear PDF, GIF, or whatever format the publication prefers.

:bulletgreen: pinkythepink covered several points regarding beads and beading The Difficult Art of Acquiring Bead SuppliesArt in the Professions
It's time to build your treasure hoard.

    Beading covers a massive range of applications, from simple pony-bead keychains on backpacks to the most intricate swirls on a bride's dress, from the obvious jewelry to the unexpected dollhouse miniatures. Dipping our hands into a barrel of semiprecious stone beads or running our fingers through the finery of petite seed beads is a wonderful feeling. But, for beaders, finding the right supplies is a challenge all of its own. It would be an epic undertaking to examine each and every possibility in one Project Educate article, so to compensate I'm going to start broad and get more specific as we go. :heart:
What is a bead?

    Beads are literally anything with a hole drilled through it. That could include tires if you were working in a Fallout world making jewelry for Supermutants! In the real world, that actual

Weekly Gallery Highlight


We decided to highlight some of the best submissions to the group gallery every week. I'll go with 25 featured submissions per week. This selection is purely subjective and represents my favourite submissions to our galleries. If you disagree with my selection, please feel free to go to our galleries and :+fav: any deviation you enjoy, artists also appreciate comments on their works! Spread the love! :dalove:

If you would like to help the group by writing features such as this or anything else, please get in touch with me via note to the group and let me know what you would like to contribute and how often (for example a weekly feature of 20 deviations from the group galleries or a monthly article written about something craft related). We are always looking for fresh blood. :D Also feel free to send us a note if you do art features containing artisan crafts and/or sculpture or if you are having an artisan crafts-related giveaway, sale or special offer.

Why are submissions taking so long to be processed that they expire? Unfortunately seems like a dead group now.

Hello!  Apologies for the delay responding. I am the only active mod currently. I didn't want to make any changes without getting permission from the group owner first. The group owner is MIA and hasn't responded to any recent attempts I have made to contact her, and the other mods have not been around for months.

I have medical issues and can only do so much by myself, and have been sick recently.  I am catching up on the back log as fast as I can. I will probably make a post seeking people who are active to help manage submissions, since the others have been inactive for so long.  Thanks for your patience and understanding.

I'm going to guess "no" is your answer, either that or the admin didn't want to outright reject my request to join and decided to let it sit in limbo of indecision. I understand that thought, so, anyways maybe I'll try again some other time.

Apologies for the delay responding.  I am the only one here processing requests because all the other mods are MIA.  I got sick and fell behind on getting everything processed.

Weirdly, there isn't a pending request for you here, or else I would approve it.  There was a weird glitch recently where submissions were coming through blank and a few member joining requests were also. Nothing was clickable, and then it said it no longer existed, so it could only be cleared. Wasn't the same as when things expire. I normally contact people directly if something expires and I see it has, to apologize and ask them to resubmit, as I am now.

Please feel free to send another request and I will get it approved for you.  Thanks for your understanding and patience.  :)

Thank you. I'll send in my request. I thought maybe because I didn't include a message, that might have been part of why. I hope you feel better.
