Make it Colourful {Not NORMAL coloured hair!}

image used - Zoe all excited

I was very lucky last weekend & won the random pre picked winners on the 2 categories on 
Make it Colourful's big birthday celebration challenges. I also won this awesome image on my card 
Zoe all excited. Which Zoe's DT were giving away as candy as part of the celebrations. Then I won the 2 images for using an MIC image in the last challenge too.......plus I got top 3 too!!! WOW !! I was so chuffed to pieces & got to pick lots of fab images to play with, so I have been busy!!

I am entering this card into this weeks Make it Colourful Challenge ~ {Not NORMAL coloured hair}

Here's the card I made with some of my winnings & some images I had already bought from Zoe.





images used: all Make it Crafty  Aim em up Cupid, Run away Cupid, Geeky Love, Lovers Pavilion, Stairway to heaven & Daffodil Dell

I have coloured all the images using Promarkers using my fabby new pen holder too which hubby found for me on ebay!!


Its set out in the same formation as the letraset colour chart. Fits all 148 coloured pens, plus black, blender, gold & silver....its awesome!!

Happy Crafting Campers!!!!

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…
