Karmic Revolution. #Handmade #Folksy

For the last few weeks on Folksy there has been a small Karmic revolution going on. Quite a few of us have been taking part in what we call Pay it Forward. An item is listed for 20p the cost of listing it, with the post and packing added and when another buys it they do the same. If a non seller buys the item they are agreeing to do something nice for another person. It is all based on trust of course. It gives people the opportunity to buy some wonderful things very cheaply but they also have to pass the kindness on in one way or another. All the items listed here are Pay it Forwards. For each the price is 20p plus post & packing.
I have bought some wonderful things. Several jewellery making kits, a phone case, beads, a necklace, bracelets and several pairs of earrings. Oh dear, I just counted it up. I have bought 14 items all together. Ooops! Didn`t realise I had bought so many. I have of course listed items in my shop as Pay it Forwards in return.
I think it is a lovely idea and new people are still joining.
Time for some waffle. I had my 2 yr old grandson yesterday while my daughter worked and we had fun together. I had to wait for food shopping to be delivered at my house before we could return to his home. The big shop was an extra as my younger daughter is off to Switzerland on Monday, with her fiance, for 6 months. We are having a get together tonight as it will be the last chance to do so for a while. On Sunday they will be heading back to London for last minute packing before starting their new adventure.
We are going to go and stay with them for a week in September which will be lovely. I shall miss them both a lot but I have no doubt that it wil go really quickly. Unfortunately, I am at work during the day today so I will have to make the most of the time tonight and in the morning until they head back.
Okay enough waffle.
As ever, to see a description or larger picture, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!

There`s a small revolution quietly going on
we`ll all be quietly happy even when it`s done.
Racking up the karma by doing a good deed
spreading happiness by planting the seed.
The buyers happy with a bargain,
the sellers happy a sale again.
They make a great little gift
or to give yourself a lift.
Something pretty, won`t break the bank
whoever started it we`ll thank.
Not quite sure now who it was
started a while ago so that`s because.
I could search the forums I suppose
be a job though, how fast it goes.
Doesn`t matter, what counts is the deed
just thanks to whoever took the lead.
It has been quite a lot of fun
and soon it`s day will be done.
So do your bit, come and buy
then off you go to fly
and find a good deed to do
then it`s all paid back for you.
Now don`t you think that`s really easy
nothing there to make you queasy.
Just doing good and nothing more
no, don`t pass out on the floor!
It happens, folk can be good
just the way they always should!
So off you go, get your bargain now
then do your good deed and take a bow!!
