Happy New Year & 1st Ellephantastic Challenge of 2011!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy New Year!!

Today is 1st Ellephantastic challenge of 2011.
It brings with it a few changes.
First we have a super NEW Elle team. Meet them HERE

The challenges will now run MONTHLY
There will be at least 4 sponsors each month & therefore 4 winners!!
There will also be a little added extra something mid month, but you'll have to pop back to see what!!

We have a NEW resident sponsor Robyn's Fetish digi stamps & more...
who very kindly gave us some images to use.

I have spruced up my blogs & the shop with a new look
My usual shop HERE is now my handmade boutique shop & my main shop is now HERE
So from now on I'll be using 

The new team have made some gorgeous cards so do make sure you pop over to 
to have a look even if you don't join in.

We were all very happy to be able to use some of Robyn's Fetish images
Here's my card using the primitive birdhouse

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…
