Here at Beading Lovely we are a little worried about how the tax credit cuts will affect our customers. Maybe you could help us understand how it will affect you by answering this simple question. I have given options for businesses and hobbyists.
I'm always seeing people asking, how much should I charge for this?
It's a matter of working out how much something costs to make, working on materials, time-to-make and profit margins, so we built a craft calculator to make it easy.
You could try running the materials cost and time-to-make through my craft calculator to get an idea of how much you "should" sell them for, although it can't tell you if that price is one the market would bear.

Thank to the TempleDene system pinterest can read more from our site than just the image by using something called Open Graph so it should even display when items are in or out of stock and the current price.

To wile away a few minutes on a morning with my first cup of coffee I like to do a couple of trivia quizzes. Jane prefers to quiz last thing at night.
We decided to set up a quiz for our beading lovely customers, but you don't have to be a customer to join in.
The quiz is not all about beads and crafting, there is a good mix of subjects.
To join the quiz go here http://www.funtrivia.com/private/main.cfm?tid=102320 and create yourself an account.
We will usually announce the daily winners the next day on facebook and the leaderboard for each month will be published on here for posterity.
Beading Lovely was set up to provide quality beads at affordable prices. We pride ourselves on customer service and hope you will appreciate our efforts.
