    Thank you so much to my dear friend Natalie (and Paul too)

    I most definitely will, and going to put it to the test in my scrapbook as well hun. I think the colours you've sent me will make the most gorgeous toppers to match in with the girly baby theme. x

    Thank you Maggie, the bug has bitten slightly so it seems you might see more of my scrapbook pages as opposed to cards for a little while :red:

    First attempt at scrap-booking

    My local children's centre have started a scrap-booking course in the evenings and I had been tempted to go along now for the last sort of year or so but hesitant too as I felt it's taking me a bit out of my comfort zone. Anyway, I finally plucked up the courage to sign up for this month's course and went along for my first session tonight. I've decided to put a scrapbook together about Kayla and although it's not finished, this is the first page so far.... Thanks for looking! Michelle x

    Sterling Silver 3D Flower I made....

    This is really gorgeous, just saw it on FB. I would put a bracelet band on it and turn it into a piece for the summertime. x

    can you explain what a blog is and candy?none the wiser

    I agree Natalie, blogs are handy for getting ideas of layouts, materials used, etc but it's soo time consuming and when you have little ones and that crafting time is limited, the last thing I'd want to be doing is blogging!

    Absolutely hun, do not give up by any means. I've been in similar situations with my cards, but you have to realize that people will soon realize that something handmade over something shop-bought and manufactured in bulk will mean a lot more to the recipient. I was just going to add that a fair thing to do is to look at similar makes in the shops, and take their prices into comparison. Then come home and take half of that cost, and add it to the cost of your materials used to make up your piece of jewellery. I find this normally works as a good guideline. For instance, I've looked at the average price for a decent card in the shops being around £3, and the materials to make one cost me between 50p and £1 depending on how elaborate I go so have priced my cards at between £2 and £2.50. Hope this helps you! And keep making gorgeous pieces, as we all love to gloat over them!
