Dug out & dusted off my old Dustin Pike images......


This card is for my hubby its his birthday today....Happy Birthday Mr Ellephantastic!!!

I used one of my first ever DP images & coloured him with pro markers on neenah card. Then I cut him out, slightly embossed him & 3d foam padded him to my card.

Using the principle I made these 2 cards for my brother & brother in law's birthdays tomorrow!!


DP monster digi - I'm loving my shading on this one I think I have finally found my fav' browns & got use to using my blender pen


DP's pirate dragon. Simple but effective. Loving these new style of cards especially for men.

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…
