Working the Necklace Tool into the Craftboard

This will be ready this next week. I've got it working but not saving and opening yet. Also there are some small placement issues I need to fix.

Ironing out the rough spots with server images.

All 4 sites,,,, and are up and now I'm just checking the app at for issues with images. It seems I lost a couple projects in the move. Not sure how that happened. I switched from php pages to perl scripts due to some server issues. Now I just need to get the Necklace tool to save images. That will be tomorrow.

The fourth site I would like to build allows users to create a subdomain under This would give crafters a unique site where they could have the option of their own, or automated pages to build with. It would be restricted to craft items only.

Awesome Trio .biz, .net, .info

I've uploaded the start of 3 craftboard related sites.

.biz is for posting anything that is a finished product or supplies. When finished the items will link back to a users website.

.info is for building the help pages for both the .biz and the .net sites.

.net is for using the software to make projects from either your own items or from other users items.

This is all being integrated, and I hope to complete it by 2016. Especially the .biz site.

Sunday, November 30, 2014 is now moved to It all is the same except the name. Next I will incorporate for posting any craft item. You can also sell you virtual projects made within the craftboard.
I will give myself 2 or 3 months before something is up and running on Hopefully nothing gets in the way of my time.

Moving to

This has been on my todo list forever! I am coming into a couple weeks off, and decided it was high time the site name matched the app. This may take a month before I am completely comfortable with the transfer. I thought it a good time before the user list gets any bigger. I also want to put up a site for just selling crafty stuff at That will be one of my new year's resolutions.

Design Necklaces Online

Wow! Time flies when having fun. I've been remodeling a trailer and working on my necklace tool. The necklace tool will save the necklaces and reload them for future viewing. I'm trying to get it to work inside the craftboard. But for now it is here:

Necklace Tool

To use this tool with your items you need to subscribe to the exclusive plan. Then when you make an item inside the craftboard you need to look under the item info tab and put the type as 'bead','pendant', or 'clasp'.

Then link to the board with your exclusive id. Like this: Necklace Tool

Group Tool done

I finished rewriting the Grouping tool. It has multilevel grouping ability. That means you can put groups within groups. The group tool is needed to create 4 other tools I've designed. (Mask tool, Necklace tool, Kaleidoscope tool, String tool). A few days ago I rewrote the Necklace tool, because I found some better code for animating curved lines. I think it will be a week before the necklace tool is complete. I may even make this a separate little website script for my mothers site.

Group and Necklace Tool in the works

I'm starting the tools this week. I have my group tool almost working. In that same tool panel I put the necklace tool. Because a necklace is really just a group of beads. I'm making handles on the tool which change the shape of the necklace to more or less rounded around the bottom. It also adjusts the size. The idea is to drop the bottom bead first. Usually it is a pendant or something. Then drop beads on the right or left and have them fall down to the next position up from the bottom focal bead. So far it is working fairly well. I just have to be able to adjust the beads a bit. There seems to be a small gap there. Then I need to be able to remove beads from the necklace. That should be in by next week. Here is a pic of what I have so far.

VIrtual Projects

Now that we have the first few projects that are shared, I thought I would showcase them on the front page.
I have been steadily working on some help pages also.

Back in the mode

As stated in my previous posts, I had to take a few weeks off for family business. I've traveled over 4000 miles in the last 2 months. Plus was sick for 1 month straight. Crazy!

So for the last 2 weeks I've made up for it. I haven't added much new, except the selection box on the canvas.
I have fixed tons of little errors, and fixed our demo site at to run html 5. Plus I made it simple to automatically put a favorites button when we add an item to the board.
  • Check out our demo page
  • I also spent a day working on some language files that could automatically be updated. I'm still testing them.
  • I was told some help pages would be nice. So I'll be thinking about those soon.

This software is free if you check the box to be a tester. So please help. All you have to do is use it. It sends reports if errors are found.

I've moved to be with my sister for a few months. It took up alot of time away from developing software.

A few things have been upgraded, but not fully tested. Like the Grouping tool. I just have to make it save and reload now. I am also testing the features I have already. This summer I hope to find time to implement all the tools the first version had. But time will tell, family is first.

I have this page set up as an example of how linking back and forth to the board works.

I've been working on the desktop app creating items and making sure the store panel buttons work. I've found a few little mistakes that make big differences. I'm going to test it for a few more days and work on external linking. So far it's looking good.
I added a button to the desktop app that loads the users items where in the online app exclusive items would load.
