#Showcase of New Shops. #Handmade #Folksy

I thought I would showcase new shops today. It`s always nice to see new shops and what they have to offer. It`s quite exciting for the seller to see the views rising on different items and know that people are interested enough in your creations to have a look. So don`t forget to click on the pictures and got to the shops for a browse. You will enjoy it and so will the shop owners Even now I still check on the views for new items, to see how many have been interested enough to look and also to see if anyone likes it enough to favorite the item. If it`s been bought of course it shows up immediately and I then send a message thanking the buyer for their order and telling them I will post it that day or the next if it is late in the day. I know that I like to know a seller has received my order, so I feel my buyers would like an acknowledgement too.
I was at work all day yesterday, so I didn`t get much creating done, just some crochet in my lunch hour and a couple of hours again in the evening. I have made some more autiful lacy headbands. I am also still working on two more lacy summer wraps. They take quite a long time to make. One is in shades of blue and purple, a lovely yarn that is thicker for those summer evenings when it turns unexpectedly cool. The other is in bamboo yarn in white and shades of blue. I have also finished a beige wrap in bamboo that I promised a friend could see first. She has been away, so it is still waiting, although there has been a lot of interest in it. I was really delighted with the way it came out and am very tempted to keep it myself. Will have to see. Each one of course is a One of a Kind, totally unique.
Well enough waffle.

I walked to work in a different world,
cloudy and grey, while the wind swirled.
What happened to the lovely sunshine
I much preferred the weather fine.
Last night, in came the rain
will the sun ever come back again?
We get a taste of spring and then it`s gone
enough now, I want the winter to be done.
It`s time for spring to come and stay
it`s time that winter had it`s day.
I dream of of long summer days too
isn`t it the same for you?
Now it`s time for a subject change
I have something from each new shops range.
They have all taken a chance to be
a crafter selling their goods on Folksy.
Let`s give them all our support
and help them to hold the fort.
It`s fun, exciting and scary
not for the faint hearted and wary.
But with lots of you supporting handmade
all our wonderful crafts won`t fade
So come and visit and see what we`ve got
you`ll find our creations are very hot!
So be quick to buy that special treat
else someone else is bound to beat,

So be sensible and get wise
be first to to see and to buy
that unique item that makes you sigh!!
