Die cut Dreams DT Call

Hello! Yes I am still here, its just been a very busy week!! 
Whilst blog hopping earlier I noticed Die cut Dreams are having a DT call & thought I'd give it a whirl!
Theme for DT call is pink & girly (must be new & for no other challenges)
I have made a handbag card.

I have used a template for a handbag wedding favour on SU double sided 12x12 paper
I have coloured Anya with SU markers
The Fabulous friend is also SU & the flower, brad, pink gem, mini peg & handbag charm are from my stash.
The insert I have made is handbag sized to slot inside like a tag with a ribbon pull.
Hope you like it

(PS if anyone is interested I'm going to have a go at doing the handbag template onto A4 size to print)

Good Luck with the DT call, these pink and girly things are fab!
The WOYWW easel was a gift from Julia of WOYWW fame, for my participation in the 1st Anniversary celebrations. What a generous lady! Her husband made over 100!

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
