Wednesday Already??

Well it's not been the best few days for me, but I'm getting back on track!
It's a lovely day outside, if a bit windy just now. I live about a mile from a air base and the tornado's have been out all morning, you only usually see them once but it's been about 7 or 8 times today so far, they must be making the most of the good weather too :)

I've attempted to make a pineapple and ginger cake too, it's on the oven just now so we'll see how it comes out, probably a little burnt, I'm not used to electric ovens!! But nothing a bit of icing won't hide :)

So the July Jesters. Everyone seems to be doing really well, my sales have dropped off, even the views aren't as high as they were so i need to get back to promoting it again and hope things pick up, although that seems to the the same for loads of folksy people.

Anyway here's my listing for the day


I love ribbon and have been playing around with it for a while. I think i still need to refine the length and the placing of the ribbon to get it to lie exactly how i want it to, but i think on the whole it works pretty well, chuffed with it :)

As usual there has been some lovely items posted today, here's a few of my faves from today (and there goes another tornado!!)


These gorgeous earrings by Damselfly Gemma (which would go great with my necklace!!)

Next up is London Fogg


It's no exaggeration to say i want just about everything in their shop, i love steampunk (i blame back to the future for my love of it!) but have never braved making some steampunk jewellery, maybe i will give it a go

And my final choice for the day is from Ickle Imogen

Ickle Imogen

Another shop i could quite happily spend all my pennies in, some great stuff!!

Right off to see if the cake has worked, wish me luck!!

Rainy Sundays

I've had the weekend in Edinburgh visiting my parents, it's a rainy one here today! Driving back home in a bit though so glad it's not too hot, i'm getting the usual one tanned arm you get while driving :)

Played about a bit with the blog layout, not sure how much i like it but will give it a go! And got my July Jester listing up and here it is :)


There is as usual some fab listings over on Folksy today, think these so far are my faves:


Gorgeous little pic by Pavlova, love the retro look of this :)


I'm a lover of the polymer clay and this bracelet is so cute (as is the necklace from yesterday)from Buttons and Beads gifts


Gorgeous patchwork bag  by Aiden :)

Well that's me for the day

Have a good one everyone!!

Sweetie Time...

Here's today's listing :)

Little Red Star

Another cute Jelly Baby necklace :) This time featuring Baby Bonny.

I love these and making them is one of the most fun items to do. They were my first experiment with making silicone moulds and i'm prettu happy with how they turned out, so now moulding is a bit of an obsession, look out for more to come

Oooh did you know Jelly Babies were origionaly called Peace Babies? They were launched at the end of the 1st World War and didn't become Jelly Babies till 1953. There's a fact for the day :)

I've also come across some really cute blogs, if you're a fan of Kawaii this is a good one to check out, her photo frames are amazing!!

Off to annoy the dog now, if you have a dog try giving them a coconut, Oscar goes daft over his :)

So I'm going to combine the 2, my second listing for the July Jesters and my first ever Folksy Friday.

First up my 2nd listing of the Jesters

So on to Folksy Friday

For my first one I've picked the theme of ribbon and lace and these are my top picks:

Candyfloss Created gorgeous lace and ribbon cuff
I love this, it's something completely different and utterly gorgeous (and on my fave list for payday :))

Second up is CocoAngelRose's utterly beautiful brooch

This would be a great addition for any outfit or bag and i have my eve on it to jazz up my black dress

And lastly this cute tag by Just for You Cards

Def one i would want to have as a keepsake, it's lovely!!

There is so much lovely stuff on Folksy and these are just a few of my faves :)

July 1st

So day one of the July Jesters and this was my listing:

I'm working on the mix up between the kitsch and the more grown up, this is one of the grown up ones :)

Pretty quiet day today, have made some bits with buttons and am just going to finish them off

Hope all the other July Jesters had a good listing day. I'm hopefully gonna have more time tomorrow once I'm out of my interview so look out for day 2 and hopefully my first ever folksy Friday :)
