I got top 3 at DCD & another blog award!!


Thank you to Clare for this award

I'm actually a little late posting this award from Clare! Had a busy weekend.
It was my Mum & Dad's joint 60th & Ruby Anniversary party on Saturday & my 2 brothers & 2 sisters & I organised it all & as well as doing a couple of surprises for them!
First surprise was a 'This is you Life' using a projector so eveyone could see funny pictures etc!
Then later on us 5 kids were the entertainment!! We'd been gathering together every Sunday for past few weeks to practice a dance we made up to Jackson's Five 'I want you back' & the Thriller dance.
I have it on video so may up load it later if you wanna laugh!!

Ok now onto the rules of the award:
Post the award on your blog and tell 6 outrageous lies and 1 truth about yourself, or switch it to the other way round & then pass onto 7 buddies.
  1. I sang like Lady Gaga on Saturday doing Jackson Five
  2. I'm 6ft, leggy, gorgeous blonde bombshell
  3. I passed grade 4 flute with merit
  4. Yesterday I went to Asda naked
  5. I live in a castle
  6. I'm as fit as a fiddle & very healthy!!!!
  7. I can rap my legs round my head
Now 7 buddies to pass this onto........I have lots of buddies & I know its the easy way out, but because I really appreciated everyones comments sooo much & your overwhelming support I would like to give this to as many people would like it who visit me.
Thank you

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…

Buttons Picture Gift

This week Murphy's friend's little sister turned one and I decided I would have a go at a buttons picture as a present for her. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Very pretty for a very pretty little girly. She's my little smiley buddy when I do the school run. No matter how I feel she makes me smile.
If you would like to order a picture gift please contact me for more details
