This is awesome Cheesy I love the designs of them, not sure which I would love to use. Sadly I couldn't get the links to work but then again I don't have a circut so I don't know if I could make them work anyway.

I find it difficult to wear long earrings, but that doesn't mean I find it difficult to admire others who do wear them. They are cute, simple and I'm sure a lof of fun to wear, great job Cheesy

18  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: How to price items to offer cheaper shipping online on: October 04, 2018 05:10:25 AM
As I'm based in Norway I know the struggle of high shipping.

So, my items are not as cheap as yours, but I still feel like I want to lower the shipping cost slightly. While deciding that to do I asked myself a few questions:

Is the small packet the smallest thing you can use? Are there other shipping companies around that might be cheaper?
Can I increase the item price to make up for some of the shipping? How much do I want to make on my crafts?

I did discover that switching from the small box to envelopes for the items that aren't in danger of damage I could lower my cost with about 30% (if I'm not too mistaken). I'm also thinking of increasing the price, but only slightly, so I can offer a slightly lower shipping cost. What I make isn't that much, but it's the price range I want to stay in so I won't be increasing/lowering the prices based on that criteria. And it's also the cheapest company so I won't be switching anytime soon.

You said you could maybe sell them in batches, what about offering something like "pick any 5 for $x", or custom made buttons. You could also try to make sets whenever you do make them.

Good luck deciding what to do, I have scrapped several ideas of cheaper items I would like to make because of this shipping issue XD

The few things I've sold is sold over the internet, so if anyone aren't pleased with my prices I won't know, as if I would care what they think.

If I did get comments like that I would do like you do and tell them to do whatever their opinion is. Sure, make your own, go buy it in a store, etc, my prices is final. If I am in a good mood I'd probably encourage them, then ask if they would let me know how making it themselves went because I'm interested in seeing other's crafts.

I as well do give stuff out of free, to family and close friends. My problem is more with family members who think they can simply request stuff from me not even offering to pay for me spending my time making them something (which I think suck the most when I know they plan to gift it to someone else). I would say this is as rude as the "but how much for ME", as if they are entitled. I've simply stopped promising, telling them "I've got a lot of interests and never know what I'll be interested making, but I'll add it to my list"

Good luck with the shitty comments, sadly you're not the only one with comments like that, but luckily there are some people in the world who do appreciate handmade items.

Combining useful tools and jewelry is wonderful! It looks great! This combination reminds me of those pincushions that are also rings, useful and stylish.
