Be My Valentine?!

Keeping up with my promise I have made this card for 3 challenges

Tuesday Morning Sketches.......the sketch
This is my first time over at TMS. I found the sketch a bit tricky but fun.

With it being New Year their theme is new beginnings, can be new home etc or something you have that is new. So I've used my digi Roger Be My Valentine which I made yesterday so is very new! I am also new to PTW challenge!!

I noticed Lora had entered this when I was blog hopping this morning so I thought I'd enter Roger into this challenge too!

How I price my toys ....

.....I thought I would share with you today how I price my knitted Monsters.
I spent a long time researching how to price them and looking at how much other people charge for their toys (which are often not CE tested which they should be!)
Pricing ingredients: Cost of the products: wool, stuffing Use of equipment & other: Knitting needles, scissors, electricity for lights  My time: Designing the toy, knitting the toy, testing the toy CE Test: Making sure my toy is to CE standards
Now you have to decided how much you want to pay yourself an hour and any extra profit
How much do you get paid an hour? Shall we say minimum wage £7.50 per hour
The largest toy I make is Pookiechu (the pink one) she takes me 16 hours to make 16 x 7.50 = 120
so that makes Pookiechu £120 before I've even added on the cost of any wool etc!
I therefore decided to pay myself a lot less and she became £65 However even though I know you are paying for a quality toy made with quality products and to the CE stand…
