A dog is for life not just christmas

Whilst I would usually try and showcase others work on folksy, today I want to appeal directly to the people who read my blog. The christmas season is one of the busiest times for animal rescues, also in the current financial climate they are even more stretched. So I ask, even if you don't want to buy anything from my store which all profits go to the animal rescue I got my beloved Peaches from, find time to make a donation no matter how big or small to a animal rescue near you.

Today I have listed one of my alltime favourite pieces, a stunning red heart brooch,

Loooong day,

I didnt manage to list anything today, so for my folkfest I put a big up for one of my favourite items.


I went to jewellery class tonight, I don't always like the pieces I make but I love being able to talk to others with the same passion as me. It's also nice to be able to get design idea's from others. Tonight was wire wrapping ring's which I was happy to do as I have done so much seed beading recently I was worried my wire skill's were getting rusty.
Anyway here is my picks from today's Folkfest.
Another great destash!
A very soft and warm looking scarf, which is great to haave when your cold.
A very pretty notepad, a good present for a musical friend.
Another rose item, I can't help it I love roses.
I really like this necklace, I think the colours match superbly with the antique brass.

Folkfest picks and a special mention!!

Good day on the whole today, after over sleeping I made it to my slimming world class in roughly 10 minutes. I lost another 1lb!!!
Please take special note of the poppy brooch, it is helping raise money for a very special cause.
Here is my listing for todays folkfest and a few of my favourites.
If like my mother you prefer a hand written address book, I recommend this one. Very pretty!
I am very fond of white and gold, If I had pierced ears I would consider buying these.
I really love roses and these are lovely!
This supplies shop is full of wonderful resin pendants like these.
A very bright and cheerful birthday card. Just the thing in this gloomy weather.

A special mention goes to this lovely poppy brooch, all proceeds go to the royal british legion.

Online magazine

I have been involved for some time with a online mag for crafters
i say involved but its more i have written a couple of articles. Anyway i am not much of a writer but i do enjoy seeing myself in print, well who wouldnt :D

Summer bright

I've been working on a set of celini spirals necklaces for a while now, this one is my newest. I have had the frosted yellow beads for a while and its taken me ages to find some I liked that went together. I hope I have done them justice. The good thing is I have half a bag of them left so I now have to find something else to do with them.
