A bit of card making!

 I thought as I have some spare time today that I would share with you a few cards I have made over the past couple of months.

This first one is a Star Wars 3D box card I made for my brother's birthday

This is a Terry Pratchett 3D box card I made for my brother in law

A Doctor Who 3D box card made for an order

A scrabble board card made for an order. The tiles are 3D

Easel card made for an order for a special friend who is Scottish. The thistles picture is one of my own photos from winter

I've also made a cute decoupage card for my sister but forgot to photograph it...doh!!
It's been great getting back to cards. I hope to get some more done soon.

Happy crafting...may the mojo be with you!!!!!!!

Hi Helen - thank you for your comment. I think it missed something being all flat - just experimanting - I get so many comments about postage these days.

Wow, I am just bowled over by your Star Wars card. Oh my gosh, I have a son whose Birthday is in a few days and I have to try my hand at this. He is a "Star Wars" fanatic. On vacation last year, we had to go visit "The Yoda Man" Your cards are amazing. Well done. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a sweet comment.

Bear Hugs,
Carol :O}

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…
