Christmas Crafting, thank you cards & more.....

Today I decided to have a little bit of craft time. I have been wanting to make a count down to christmas for ages after I made one a couple years back.
I have used Lili of the Valley stamp, SU papers, Crafty Sentiments tag die for numbers & coloured the bear with watercolours.



Last week I also made these sweet yet simple christmas cards ready...aren't I organised!!!
Again its a LOTV stamp coloured with watercolours. The sentiment is SU & I added some pearls to finish them off.


It was my father in law's 70th yesterday so I used the old dude from Make it Crafty's flirty seniors digi stamp & coloured it with promarkers.
The doggy is a daisy & dandelion stamp & is for a friend's birthday. I coloured it with watercolours.


I figure I may need a few thank you cards so I've made some using my 12x12 Pepper & Friends papers.
There's these simple ones & then some more fancy bigger ones.


Then there's special ones. I have made the decoupage up myself cutting out the 12x12 papers


Lastly here's my baby shower pages for my baby book I am making.



I've enjoyed doing some crafting & it keeps me busy without getting too tired while I wait for baby to come!!!

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…
