EDIT: Here is a great article written on the pricing topic. maetessa.deviantart.com/journa… I've ordered a stop watch so I can get a better idea of how long it takes to do each piece. This way when I make my journal I can give a more accurate idea of the time that goes into the pieces I make. This is a great article for anyone who wants to know more about it.


Finally drew names for the 1000 watcher giveaway. The winner was :iconizzitheepic19:! :D The winner of the pole was a fancy llama so you will get one soon! I'll note you later with details.


In the recent pole I asked if I should explain why I price things the way I do. Thank you guys for the overwhelming support and understanding. Many of you have been in similar situations. So I will make a journal soon discussing it. If you guys would like me to add anything or make sure to mention something, you can note me or make a comment here. I'll be addressing stuff from the comments on the poll as well.

I've had a lot of people lately tell me my crochet things cost to much. I undercharge for everything I've ever been commissioned. Should I make a journal explaining my prices?

I'm knitting polar bears and I don't know what to do for eyes! French knots don't look right. Do you think you could please help me by telling me what you use for eyes? Thank you!

What size are you polar bears? That might change what size eyes you use. For me on my polar bears I used 5mm half spheres so I can glue them on, but you can get 6mm safety eyes also. If your bear is bigger than the one I made you may want a larger size. If you were using french knots, then I think the size I mentioned might work. This is where I get mine, www.etsy.com/shop/6060?section… but if you search for 6mm safety eyes you probably can find some where you are if the shipping is too high. That shop is where I get mine, she has lots of different colors and sizes to choose from. :)

My polar bears are 10/20 cm long from nose to tail (depending on if they are large or small)

Thank you very much! This is extremely helpful! <3

So the 6mm ones will probably work well for the large ones, she has 4mm ones also I believe. For the very small, you might can use a super fine tip sharpie temporarily until you can find even smaller eyes. I have a few 3mm eyes, but I had to get on eBay to get them. They are used for needle felting, so they don't have backs on them.

No problem, if you have any other questions feel free to ask :)

I asked in a comment on your Titan photo, but I decided to post here since you're more likely to see it. I'm a huge fan of Titan, and I was wondering if you would allow me to draw him in my own style, while still staying true to your original design. Of course I would refer to your art as inspiration, and would include you in the description. So...can I? :)
