221  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Keeping track of time? on: August 10, 2011 05:11:05 PM
I know that some crafters include an hourly wage of sorts when pricing their items. My question is: How do you keep track of time spent on your business/crafted items?

I'm trying to figure out a pricing scheme that works for me. But I've never been good at 'telling time'. Yes I can read a clock. What I mean is that I'm not very aware of when I start something or how much time passes when I'm working on a project. But for the purpose of figuring out a good pricing strategy that works for me I need an easy way of keeping track of my time. I tried a timecard thing (MS doc) on my computer but I always forget to use it. Oh and I don't have a printer so I can't, like, tape it to the wall by my PC or anything either.

Any advice please? Undecided

I started a Wist just so I could Wist this.  Grin I love anything Star Wars and I really want a Darth Vader hoop like this. Yours are simply awesome! I love them.  Grin

I love the page with the little eyeball monsters!  Grin

I started a similar project myself a couple months ago but then I had to move. I haven't gotten back to it yet but I just may now! You also inspired me to use some of the random things that I've written in my journal. Cheesy So thanks! Cheesy

My family made Christmas ornaments out of old puzzle pieces before. We spray painted them green, glued them in wreath shapes and added tiny red bows. I think we also out a picture in the middle.  Smiley

'wastelandscape', an installation by elise morin and clémence eliard

created by french artist elise morin and architect clémence eliard, 'wastelandscape' overtakes the 'halle d'aubervilliers'
of paris's centquatre with an undulating landscape composed of 65,000 old CDs, sorted and hand-sewn together
into a 500-square meter surface. the piece is on exhibition at the centquatre now through september 10th.

in the artists' words:
'made of petroleum, this reflecting slick of CDs forms a still sea of metallic dunes;
the artwork's monumental scale reveals the precious aspect of a small daily object.'

'wastelandscape' is planned for exhibition in multiple locations, transforming each time,
before eventually being completely recycled into polycarbonate.

It looks like dragon scales to me. Cheesy
227  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cupcake pick flags! ^_^ (With in-process pics) on: August 02, 2011 10:07:52 AM
I made these like 2 months ago but I've been too busy to post them 'til now.

I made these for a fundraiser for a couple friends of mine. One went to Japan for a month and the other has moved to England for 6 months. They're made with red, white and blue cardstock that I cut and glued together. I made about 60 in all; 35 British flags and 35 Japanese flags.

Progress pics!

The blue base. If I remember correctly this is about an inch by an inch and a half:

The white layer:

The red layer half done:

All Finished!

The leftovers ^_^

The Japanese flags. (Forgive the crappy picture quality >.<)

For the Japanese flags I used a 3/4"(?) circle punch.

I'm not sure how well the bake sale part of the fundraiser went as I kind of made the cupcakes and flags then left the next day for a month. But in the end they both raised all the funding they needed. ^_^

She comes apart for easy cleaning.

That's got to be the best part right there! I would've thought you were kidding if not for the pic! Now I want a Happy Blender too! Seriously, my roommate would get a kick out seeing a little Happy Blender in our kitchen. (long story) ^_^
