WOYSW

Its time for whats on your sofa wednesday (said in a silly game show voice)
Cue the daft music....!!

Well to show you that I'm not always tidy I have a few bits out today!! Been making the card thats on the post before this.
The green box is my scraps box & I'm happy I made the card with all scraps yey!

Now we have WDYLLW - what did you look like Wednesday (I just made that up!)
On face book they're doing a retro week. You have to change your profile pic to what you looked like when you were younger so I thought I'd share on here too!

If you would like to join in with WOYWDW then pop over to Julia's blog & leave a comment & we'll all come & have a snoop about your work space!!

Ah weren't you cute ;) The card on prev post is lovely :) Ooh I couldn't craft on a sofa that colour without throwing something over it first :-/ I get ink everywhere! I need to be careful if I use any ink or pens today 'cos I've got a cardi on with droopy sleeves.

Aw. Lovely photo of a little you. Your craft stash looks very organised.
Thanks for dropping in on my blog. Yes I'm happy to make my pictures to sell. The charge depends on the hours spent and the materials required so they all vary in price. If you have something particular in mind let me know and I will do my best.

I don't think. technically that having a handful of boxes on the floor counts as untidy! If you should ever find yourself visitng me, I advise you brace yourself!! Am so impressed by the stuff you make on the sanctuary of your sofa.
And weren't you cute! Bet your Mum loves that pic.

Bet your Mum loves that pic...you were a sweetie! I'm not sure that you have grasped the understanding of the word 'untidy' - I don't think your sofa craft sanctuary is at all untidy..it looks organised to me. If you ever find yourself on my doorstep, you may need to be prepared to learn...!

I'm sorry, this is all a bit too tidy for me... if I couldn't shut the door on my mess, I think I'd be headed for the divorce courts.... I never show the really bad bits... maybe nest week!

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…
