.......whats on your sofa (work desk) wednesday?!
If you've not joined in before then just pop over to Stamping Ground & have a nosey round other desks (or in my case sofa!) & show off what your are doing.

My Chrismtas tree has now gone :-( I can spread out again now though...yey!
I'm not very tidy this week, I'm working on a few things so I have bits all over!!
Last week there was my love album from Susie's shop which I have finished but its for my Daisy & Dandelion DT project so I will have to show you it later.

This week its bits from making the card on the post before this & I'm in the middle of the card which is on the sofa arm!

PS this is a different view so you get to have a good nosey (someone requested last week & I chuckled!)

I think it's incredibly tidy for a craft really very impressed. How often do you fall asleep on that comfy sofa?! Nice that you have it all at hand, even a noticeboard - is that finished stuff or inspiration?

I started out with my stuff in a Mothercare Nursery box, which grew into a chest of drawers and a set of shelves and a whole bunch of boxes and I think I could do with a little therapy!
What do they say about people who live in a state of clutter?
At least I can shut the door on my space so it doesn't get complained about. Your space looks most welcoming!

I love your little craft nook you've got going on there. Definitely looks comfy - had to enlarge the picture so I could have a proper nose to screen nosey ;)

Oh to be able to craft all comfy on the sofa..... I think muy dogs would have something to say about that and sit on all my stash :)
I'd have stuff all over the sofa and all round me on the floor too. When I used my kitchen table I'd use 2 chairs either side of me as well :)

Well, as you now know, my sofa is littered at the moment. Yours looks very neat and tidy in comparison. I love your throw on the back there. Did you make it? lauren x

All that sofa needs is a big furry blanket to snuggle up in ... well you would if it was mine! It's COLD up here it my attic.

looks very comfy - but what about glitter it would get everywhere - or don't you do glitter? I had to separate my PC from craft area because the keyboard was glowing with glitter and embossing powder!

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…
