craftgrrl is a high traffic community. In order to reduce the volume, posts not following the guidelines may be deleted at the moderator's discretion.If your post has been deleted you may email the moderator to discuss it. Any further posts about the issue are inappropriate and will be deleted.

Posting Policies ~
We require tolerance of newbies and respect for everyone's opinion. This is not a place for fighting, spamming, flaming, prejudice, bias, or blatant negative remarks. If you continually engage in such activities, you will be banned from the community.

Posts about other LJ communities, sites, or functions are fine as long as they are in the diy crafty ideology. Please respect the work and rights of other artists by not asking us how to copy a specific craft person’s items or posting any published patterns with active copyrights.


Here on craftgrrl there is to be NO BUYING/SELLING/TRADING!!!

Posts violating this rule will be automatically deleted. We will strictly enforce this. This includes advertising, references to Ebay/Etsy shops and listings, selling journals, or on-line shops.

If you are interested in buying an item posted here, please check the poster's journal and userinfo for more information, and contact them outside of the community. If you can not find any information, you may ask the poster if they are selling the item. (This should be an absolute last resort!)

Images with WATERMARKS containing a personal or store name are allowed, but watermarks containing a website address or local store adress are not permitted. "Mary's Stuff" is okay, "marysstuff.com" is not.

If you're looking to sell/trade your crafts, please visit these communities.




Lj Cut ~
When posting large pictures (wider than 600 pixels), not safe for work pictures, multiple pictures, or long posts, you need to use the LJ CUT TAG. If in doubt, use a cut. click here to learn all about the CUT TAG.
