KittyVane--I absolutely adore Toby. Too cute! (I loved Annabel, too, probably because I have a softspot for that name. Smiley)As for pricing, though, I'm not much help there. I wouldn't even know where to begin pricing such an item until I've at least had a little experience making one.

I really like your comic book pendant pinkangel1979! Smiley

Thank you!

I price by materials + time.  My time is £5 an hour which is about minimum wage in the UK but as PinkyK said, it's something I love doing and would probably do anyway so it's hard to charge for it.

Sweets those earrings are awesome!! I'm jealous!!

About the pricing convo, I've gradually raised my prices since opening my shop in June, but still feel some are a bit wonky. (that's my word for the day AHHHH!! ) like my patches, I don't want to underprice them, but then again it's a patch, and I try and price by what I would spend. I just listed some notebooks, I have them priced at $8.00 and think that's fair considering the jacket is removeable. What do you all think?

Thanks Tomatedpingles! The 2nd pic is the inside cover of the notebook. I've been meaning to retake them so it's clearer but it's been so gloomy here for the past few days.

I really need to stop reading this thread, I just come up with more and more stuff I want to buy!
Those owl-journals are brilliant stiching sister, and I'm sure you could charge more for them than just $8.00. Actually, you should charge more, as they really are great!

Thanks Sweets! Grin

The Soraiden Pin was a limited edition pin too.  I, personaly, ran out of my first set of pins.  I know there are more out there with other people.  I have the second edition pins comming to me in the mail right now.  Romero and the Katamari are in the second edition too, but the other three are now The Scream, The Buzzard and The Moogle.  They are in the mail to me right now and I will post a photo as soon as they get here.

On the pricing issue.  Since my supplies are so inexpensive, with the exception of the Katamari, I decided to price my items based on size and hair style.  I have a standard price for items that stand 3", up to 6" and up to 12".  Then I add on to that price if the doll has hair because of the extra time it takes to put it in. Jack's head takes as long to make as the whole rest of his body!

*gasp*  But, but, but... I need the others!  I have Soraiden & Romero (sorry, I couldn't think of his name earlier).
