    Thank you! That is quite a compliment! I wish I could afford to do it for a living. I occasionally make cards for co-workers, but I never charge for them.

    I know what you mean Donna, that's why I gave up making cakes, I just never knew what to charge for them. I do miss it, especially seeing people's faces when they see the cakes - that was all part of it for me

    I only make cakes for people I know now and I don't charge.

    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.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    You got it, Wendy. How much do you charge? Your labor is worth something...

    that's the problem. When you spend hours making something, in my case flowers out of icing it can take a couple of days to make all the flowers and then turn them into posies or bouquets and people just aren't prepared to pay for that.

    the cards my sister and i sell in the shop, we make the prices up as we go along. As long as we scrape a few pennies back that's all we want! We'll never be rich on it and certainly don't make a profit, but it's fun and gives us the chance to experiment!

    My Mum insists on paying us for the cards we make for her but we don't take a lot from her of course, and I make more cards as 'samples' which I give to her for her own use - that's my way round the problem of her wanting to pay for them!

    I think most crafters, whatever their craft is, don't make anywhere near a profit, I know some do but i believe most don't!
