I have coloured my image using Sarpreets Tutorial 2 HERE

Cut out your image & the 2 duck images from last week. (I have used decoupage scissors)
Using your embossing tool rub the back of the images to give them some shape.

Print, colour & emboss the egg & bow image
Stick the cocktail stick to the back of your bunny image. (I have used double sided tape)

Stick 3D foam pads down each side of the egg image & stick over the cocktail stick

Stick 3D foam pads to the bow image & stick to the egg.

Now put your blue/white tack into the centre of your silicone bun case & stick the cocktail stick (with the images on) into the blue/white tack

Print, colour & emboss the Happy Easter image. Now use a pokey tool & poke a hole into the black dots

Poke holes into the silicone bun case where you would like the image to go & attach your easter brads
Glue your 2 ducks from last week to the inside of the silicone bun case & fill with mini eggs

This is your finished Easter basket no 2
Come back again next monday to make a card to go with your mini baskets
Thank you & have fun!!

Hi Hels, i just read your ME/CFS update as i have lost touch with what is going on. At first I thought you were talking about the Driving Licience people but then i realized and...well what a pile of pooh. I would like to see them find you, me or anyone with our condition an employer who would be happy to take us on. Ask them if they will employ you - oh but by the way you might have to phone in sick on the odd occasion, and could they provide somewhere you could rest a while when you collapse into a heap of painful uselessness. And how exactly are you supposed to keep up your concentration levels.
Love always Mel x
Keep your pecker up girl - just look at what you've been doing when you have had your good days. Against all the odds, you are really making the most of them. People should ask themselves how would they feel if they had to sleep through half their lives and not be able to do normal every day things. They take it all so for granted they would probalbye wonder what they hell you are talking about. Mel x

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…
