Wow I can't believe I have now reached 61 followers and to celebrate I am giving away a sets of covered buttons from blondesbackyard

You can chose which buttons you want, if you win!!!
All you have to do is reply to this, add a link if you like...:-)
I will do the draw on Sunday evening, can post on Monday in time for Christmas...Ho!Ho!Ho!

UK Handmade online mag have a gift guide, and is wonderfully laid out and really makes you want to purchase all the items listed and the story is fab, quite a few fellow folksy sellers have their items listed, I have managed to get my hair clips from babyblondedesign listed on p5, which again is fab (oh dear seems to be the word of the moment).

I have also been playing around with my banners this evening for folksy, what do you think? a bit slicker than before......I know, I know I have 2 custom skull cushions to make, (tomorrow is another day as they say), sewing is harder after a glass or two of red wine! trust me I have tried it.

I hope everybody else has managed to have a bumper sales month, next year I need to be even quicker, no 'custom' items listed, it is just enough to get home from work and find you have sold something, wrap it up and post it off, let alone start from scratch, hunt out new fabric, buy new fabric, cut more skulls and get sewn within my deadline of 2 evenings, it doesn't compare at all to last years poor sales.



  1. I love the mushroom and porcupine buttons! Am your newest follower, xXx

  2. I know exactly what you mean about the custom orders, and it seemed like such a good idea at the time;)

  3. Love the owl and hedgehog buttons! The new banners are great. So right about only having time to post out items after a hard day at work. Happy Christmas, Karen. Lorraine x

  4. Will be a tough choice for whoever wins to decide which button they want :)

  5. Hello - found you through blu-shed! I love these buttons! I got the folksy newsletter through the post on Friday and promptly spent a lot of money! (lol). Glad you have such a following (quite envious really ... ) Good luck with all your sales.


    p.s you now have another follower!


I love to read all you comments, ideas and things that may even help out!
