I submitted my work; how long will I need to wait before it's published?
It depends on how many posts we already received at the time of your submission. You'll receive an estimated publication time when you submit your project. We understand that it could feel too long if you have to wait one month before your work is online, but there is "method to our madness"! Our goal is to allow every post to have time to be focused on, and we have to stagger them out so that every post is viewed individually. We don't want to publish more than two posts every day for them to be visible. We could publish ten posts one day and then none the other day, but your post will not have enough visibility, and you could be frustrated if no one sees your work and/or interacts with it.
Is my work published on your social networks?
Absolutely! Your article will be posted on our different social networks which are: Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, StumbleUpon & Tumblr.
Will you notify me when my work is scheduled & published?
Yes, but only if you are a member. We contact you via email when your post is scheduled, and include the publication date. Additionally, we will notify you again when your project is published
Can I buy some of your products?
No. We don't sell any products; we are a repository of resources; a kind of springboard for ideas around recycled materials to give you some inspiration for your next project.
When available, we add the link to the Crafter's website at the bottom of the article. You should follow this link and directly contact the author.
Where are the plans?
This is the most challenging of our Frequently Asked Questions. Yes, we all want plans :), but to be honest, it's difficult to have plans/tutorials for all the projects we feature. We do not consider ourselves as the main tutorial site for everything made with raw, recycled materials. If you want to build it, most of the time you'll have to figure out a way and reverse-engineer it. Let your imagination and your skills guide you :)
