Whats on your "Tweet" desk Wednesday?

Good sunny morning WOYWDWers!!
Lots of good news to share with you today. Firstly my new niece was born yesterday she is called Eva.
I had some sneaky cuddles last night when she was only 3 hours old!
Next bit of good news is I've finally moved out of the bathroom!! (For those who haven't visited me before, we live in a static caravan with a bathroom, shower room  & toilet, so I took over the bathroom)
...but I am not totally moved because hubby still has some bits to move & I have a house guest staying on my desk for a week. Meet Ella Bella B
My mum & dad fly to France today so I am bird sitting!! 
look empty shelves! Oh & the top of the toilet!!
Here's my new space. It is an office built on a mezzanine floor above hubby's workshop
I have been sat on my patchwork blankets I made whilst sorting stuff out!
Here's the other side where you can see hubby's master paint work on car panels. I am not allowed to go near them!! My desk will be going where the panels are under the lights.
Great eh?! My own propper space. Now instead of banging my knees & elbows in the bathroom I bang my head on the sloping roof instead!!! lol!!!!

Apologies for being so late with visiting last week. I will try to do better this week!!
If you want to see where to WOYWDW started then pop over to see Julia & everyone elses desks!

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…
