Thinking of selling my lace flowers...

Not the best picture, sorry 22nd January 2013

Hey as the title says I'm thinking of selling my lace flowers...  

Here's a sample of none centered flowers ranging from apx 1" to just under 3.5" I took a picture to show friend(s) what I was working on and since had a couple of requests to sell these.  

I have decided if I did I'd sell them in packs of 5 (probable mostly larger flowers perhaps 3 large 2 small or well we'll see)  But I wanted to get a rough idea what people would be willing to pay so lets pretend this is a picture of a pack of 5 lace double flowers please answer the 4 questions below.

So hypothetically speaking lets say you're interested... 

Question 1 What would you be interested in:

5 lace flowers with bling centers
5 lace flowers with button centers
5 lace flowers with no centers so you could add your own
6 lace flowers in mixture of 2 bling, 2 button and 2 o centers

Question 2 What prices would you be willing to pay (not including P&P) for say a pack of 5 (ranging from 1" - 3.5" double flowers):

Question 3 What P&P prices for UK (not international) would you be willing to pay (shipping packaging and postage) postage:
Up to £1 
£1 - 2
£2 - 3
(obviously would vary for combined orders, size and weight - I will ship internationally but postage will be based on international shipment and package weight and size etc...)

Question 4 What other products other than lace flowers would you be interested in?
Polymer Clay / Clay creations
Handmade minature flower sprays (metal with beading)
Miniature stickpins
Die Cuts
Handmade cards
Handmade tags
Mixture of the above 
Or other

{More samples of my work coming soon.  I have created a facebook page however it will not be active until I have a good bunch of feedback, research and stock @ - thank you}

Crafting Thus Far 19th Janaury 2013

Hey so I thought I'd write a quick update on my crafting.  So... This year has been interesting, as said it started out with flue and during this time I totally lost my creative mojo and crafting just wasn't working out for me no matter what I did.  I thought long and hard about the things I wanted to do but when it came down to it I just made a big mess, ruined some lovely papers and felt awesome...  So what happened!!?

Dawn started a facebook group (Crafty Fairy Godmothers) and me along with the other 5 wonderful ladies became closer...  Some of us chatting on and off since early November but some I only met through the group early January.  However their wonderful personalities, creative works and generally their insperation and even their influencial chats helped bring out my creative side again.  Dawn started a challenge which I embraced...  I figured the whole thing was actually quite fitting since it was to design a 6x6 card or plaque.  I figured since this month is 1 year since I started crafting that I would create a plaque to represent that, which I did and it really helped me get out of the creative rut I was in.

So moving on from that a number of things happened...  First Dawn sent me a lovely RAK and two of the items were quite interesting.  The first was a photo frame which she has requested I alter for her and send back and the second being a plain circular bolsa box to alter for myself.  Also in the RAK Dawn had created me my very own Crafty Fairy Godmother sign which influenced the next challenge on CFG (which I'm hosting!) it's more of a challenge swap as we each have to make 6 signs (one for ourselves and one each for the other ladies in the group).  Which has proven to be very eventful since most if not all the ladies have totally different tastes and such which has made me embrace things I haven't done before or improve on the things that I have.  Learning all the time.  I got the wonderful idea of making pin cushions also and in the mix of stuff also stickpins, improving on tags and I have some Birthday cards to get started on also!!  Very busy!  

We also created the blog which I am really looking forward to help developing, while bettering my skills... inspiring others and perhaps even making new friends!!

I generally feel that this years crafty creations are 100% better than last years...  Even if I say so myself.  But I'm pleased with myself and thus why I am writing this blog and sharing a couple of my recent projects in video form. Lots more to share but don't want to spoil suprises...  hehe.

January Updates Thus Far.

So I'm miles behind with everything and sadley really been neglecting my blog. Sorry blog. Pfft.

Anyways... I have done some stuff this year... I decided as a New Year's Res' that I'd create more and do more YouTube videos... So here's 3 videos from this year but sadley only 1 creation. I have another to film and I'm working on multiple other ones... Not too shabby. Got a whole bunch of ideas... but that's for another day ;)

I entered Challege #1 @ Crafty Fairy Godmothers (facebook group by Dawn Omar). I decided to do a plaque since we had to do a plaque or a card and I decided to make it to mark that I have been crafting for 1 year (since Jan 2012).

I also got some more wonderful wonderful serprise HAPPY MAIL from the lovely Dawn!! 

I was also tagged by Marie (who is marigoldblu) on YouTube to answer 9 questions which are mostly related to crafting, youtube or both... with the odd curve ball... 

All of the above videos are by me and I am missimoinsane on YouTube.

Happy New Year... 14 days too late. Oopse.

Well where have I been?

Then Birthday...  Christmas Eve.  Christmas Eve was actually quite wonderful indeed, lots of last minute wrapping...  start of Christmas dinner cooking, Turkey flavoured Bacon Sandwhiches for tea and films, giggles, commedy and snuggles with Josh.  Yes Christmas Eve was indeed quite wonderful.  ...  Christmas Day.  Christmas day...  let me see.  Got up, opened wonderful presents...  Josh started cooking, my Grandparents arrived, opended more ... slightly odd presents, Christmas dinner with laughing, gigles, Toy Story 2 on the box, managed not to avoid the Queens speach, jokes, funny hats, remannicing...  Not an argument or negative moment to be had.  Grandparents left...  We watched Dr Who :D :D and then some commedy where I fell asleep.  Woke up several hours later (Boxing Day Early Hours Of The Morning) ...I'M ILL...  OMG I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DIE.  So...  Boxing Day...  Was ill (flue) followed by plenty of bed rest through to New Years Eve in which Joshua had to work :( :'( leaving me all along...  but he suprised me and got to come home before midnight (about 11ish) and so we got to do the whole seeing in the New Year and Midnight Kiss :D - Makes me happy.  New Years Day...  Still ill but meh...  Slowley getting better...  over the past 14 days.  Now pretty much better.  Been moving my Craft Room round (well Josh has, he's wonderful) then I've been reorganising it all.  Crafting.  YouTube.  Facebook.  The usual and such...  So now you're upto date.  :)

Happy None Birthday.   Merry Christmas Eve.   Merry Christmas.  Merry Boxing Day.  Happy New Years Eve.  Happy New Year(s Day).  Hello 14th January...
