  • Folksy Listings – Day 12

    We’re back to Monday already, how did that happen?? To celebrate this fact today’s listing is a ‘rainy days and mondays card’ which would certainly cheer me up on a Monday –  if only I could forget the stresses of life and go puddle jumping in some funky wellies today! Today was very busy at… Read more »

  • Folksy Listings – Day 11

    I’ve been having a bad day today and still need a hug so lets hope tomorrow’s better – having said that I still have to start a painting I’ve been commissioned to do, and do my Folksy items ready for this week, and then it will be time for bed!  But until then here are… Read more »

  • Need a hug

    Yikes, I’ve just realised it’s 2 weeks today until my birthday! For some reason I’m feeling a bit blue about it. I think it seems like life is just passing me by at the moment, and I’m in a city I would rather not be in if it weren’t for the current economy and lack… Read more »

Anyway, here are my top 3 for today, it’s a bit earlier today… Read more »

Not sure what else to… Read more »

It always makes me smile on days like this, so my ‘get well card’ for today is hopefully going to raise some smiles and money for Macmillan… Read more »

  • Folksy Friday – spring

    My item on day 9 is a ‘good luck’ card, as I thought I was going to need it with a difficult challenge at work, and I think it worked – well at least I’m closer to the answer!  The luck with the weather certainly changed and is hopefully the start of spring. Can you… Read more »

  • Folksy Listings – Day 8

    I love my job but it can be very stressful sometimes… and today was one of those days so I’m glad I posted my ‘new arrival card’ before I got to work! I have no idea how I am going to find another 22 items in the next 22 days?? M fellow Folksters are keeping… Read more »

  • Folksy Listings – Day 7

    I decided to put my Dan’s Party card on today, just to remind my boyfriend (the real DJ Dan) how much I appreciate him, and how much he inspires me 🙂 I really struggled to narrow down to my top 3 today – it gets harder as the days go on… I’m hoping to list… Read more »
