May 22.2

So why is $90 my new favorite number? Because at the Glen Ellen Farmers Market last weekend I sold "Cati Cat" for that much (see picture of her with her new owner). Now, I did not price her, my booth-mate and good friend Heather, of <> , set the price for the doll (she knew I would price it for half that). Pricing my handmade goods is very difficult. Some things that look simple (cute stuffies) are really quite difficult and time consuming while others, that look hard to make (like jewelry) are really fast and easy. Of course how to price handmade, one of a kind art and craft is the subject of many workshops, blogs, and books. I have no advice to the artist who wants to sell her work. That said I am sure I will be revisiting this topic many times.

I am gonna miss this one, she was only about 2 weeks old.

Well it's taking a while for me to  finish ( time will tell) this creature of the orange and black. It took all this while for him to tell me what kind of nose and, it turns out, mustache he wanted. See the two pictures -arms came first and then the nose and 'stash.  He will soon be telling tales of adventure on etsy where I will post him up for adoption at the modest fee of $90 ( my new magic number).
