I'm having a baby!!!!!

Firstly apologies for my lack of blogging this year. I took some time out then felt poorly & found out I'm having a baby!!!
Its been 7 years of trying and a failed go at IVF so as you can imagine we have been shocked, surprised & over the moon with the news.
I went for my first scan this morning & this is our little miracle....Blueberry!!

We are still looking to be moved again especially now but if I get settled in time before Blueberry comes I hope to get a little crafting done. I miss it!! All my stuff is still packed in boxes :0(

I am so happy to hear the good news :)
Hope you and the baby go well and you'll have time to craft... (after the baby is born it will be less time for that)

Oh Helen, how wonderful and such a fabulous scan picture of Blueberry too. A big, big congratulations, I understand how you feel as I had problems conceiving and it is so hard to come to terms with so I'm over the moon for you sweetheart. Take it easy and enjoy the pregnancy and let everyone pamper you *smile* I eventually had a daughter and she has been my light all these years, I hope you too find that much happiness...
Love ~ Lady Anne xx

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…
