I have managed to get a few pounds back from them being sold in one of my local shops, but it's nowhere near a profit!
Lots of shops sell less expensive products I've found, and if you are careful with what you buy it doesn't have to be really expensive.
Glue and feathers..... I couldn't help but get in a right mess with those... I can see it now
The cards are lovely I wish I could do things like that
Card making and scrapbooking are things I have never really done, I did think about it as a way of having a hobby/job from home but I just wouldn't know what to charge.
Now if it was a cake that would be different but then I never used to know what to charge for the cakes either
At some point you have to realise that
some people can stay in your heart
but not in your life.......
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

Wow, your cards are beautiful, I know you said you sell them in a shop, have you tried Ebay - I make and sell card toppers and have sold hundreds on it and achieved some really good prices too! I did have to laugh at you spending more than DH realises - I have tons of stuff that he thinks arrived with the fairies
Mandy, it doesn't have to be expensive, I love to make toppers for my cards out of tiny seed beads and they cost just peanuts to make and are really easy to do, it's very therapeutic tooOriginally Posted by Travelmam, post: 145146

Thank you! I've often looked at toppers on ebay - wonder if I've seen any of yours!Originally Posted by sunsetlakes, post: 145182
Trouble is I've bought a few bits off Create and Craft recently - he's seen the credit card bill - whoops!
Mandy, really - give it a try. You can get card making/craft magazines that come with bits and pieces to get you started.
They are fab, I love the sparkly red dress one the best.
