Inspiration
For some inspiration on what you might like to do with Elle check these out.
Made by Joanne
Where do you hide a white elephant?
Behind the green elephant ears. AND the belly band.
I saw the tri-fold easel card somewhere in cyberland,
then couldn't find it again, then I figured that I could re-create it on my own.
it was so simple, but here are a few pics for those who may need a little visual help.
Decorated with leaves and flowers that I cut out from the designer paper.
The belly band 1 1/4'' by 8 1/2'' was scored at 3'' and  7 1/8'', layered with matching DSP
1 1/8'' x 8 1/2'' and then sewn all the way around and taped together, tied with twine that was colored with markers.  It slides right over the entire card.

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
