Charlotte's colouring at Aunty Helen's house (caravan!!)

*{My 1st post today}*

This is one of the few images my niece Charlotte (in the pic above) coloured whilst visiting me.
I am now crafting in my bedroom & we popped in there for something & Charlottes little eyes lit up...'Oh Aunty Helen I like those pens can I colour with them?'
So we got my SU markers out & my draw of images I have been sent from friends & she chose a few to colour. ....only girlys ones or fairies!!!!
She coloured a few images, left me 3 to pu on my cards...awwww & took the rest home with her.

I am showing this one off today because over at Make it Colourful they are having a special challenge for the kiddies & the challenge was to colour in Pink, but didn't have to be made into a card.

Charlotte is like Aunty Helen & critical of her own work & said that this was a bit scribbly & she'd dribbled a bit (aka gone over the lines!!!)

I am going to use the images she has coloured & make cards for her to give to her friends.

Oh & when I told her that I was entering her image into a competition she said she would like to win a Rapunzel doll & something else I can't remember what it was maybe Cinderella!!!
She makes me laugh!!! :0)

Oh Charlotte, It sounds like you had so much fun at Aunty Helens! I just love the colour pink you chose to use and you did an excellent job at colouring some ground for her to stand on. I am not sure I'll be able to get my hands on a doll as a prize but hopefully you'll like to have a stash of your own goodies to play with at Aunty Helens next time if you win. :)

Helen, Charlotte is a sweetie and it's so nice of you to play crafts with her. hugs xxoo

Well done, Charlotte! That's beautiful colouring, even though with a weeeee bit out of the lines when you coloured! I like her red heels to go with the pink dress that she is wearing, and you clever girl, even paved the road for her to walk on! :)

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…
