#Mayhem Madness! #Handmade #Folksy.

Back to Mayhem today. Another view of the listing clubs wonderful craft items. The numbers are growing, adding more variety to the many delectable delights on offer. Our aim is to tempt you to buy quality handmade goods for youself and as gifts for others, rather than mass produced things that you can get everywhere. Where is the fun, enjoyment and pleasure in that? Knowing that lot`s of other people have exactly the same things as you can`t be good, so much nicer to have something unique and special.
I was busy yesterday. Looked after my youngest grandson while his mum was at work. Bless his little heart he is covered in Chickenpox spots, caught from his 4 yr old brother. He was a little bit under the weather, but not unduly so. We had a play in the garden for a while and with some toys indoors after. I think it got a bit warm for him, the temp climbed to 24 at one point. Was very warm until the wind started up again. I got some crocheting done when he was asleep and then went into the city for necessities. Don`t go now unless I absolutely have to. Once upon a time I used to go in at least twice a week. Now it`s too much time away from crafting and computer work.
Enough waffle from me. I could fill the entire page in no time, without even trying. Perhaps there should be a waffling competition, I might win... Hmmm...
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.

Today it`s madness and mayhem,
I`m not mad it must be them.
I think we are all a little bit mad
but we love crafting and we`re glad,
to have something we love to do
as a job, making things for you.
Sometimes folk look down on us,
think we make an undue fuss,
about the endless amount of work
it all entails, but we don`t shirk.
The costs and hours, they don`t see
and say, "HOW MUCH?" with great glee!
We don`t care, we soldier on
getting all our job`s done.
We carry on because we must
it`s keep creating or bust.
I think it`s our artistic bent
even though sometimes we vent.
Rail at fate, how much work there is
often getting in a right old tizz.
All that artistic creativity
has to come out somewhere you see.
We have to sell what we make
else we`d drown in a lake
of our own making,
honest I`m not faking.
We create fast when ideas flow
and the amount of stock seems to grow.
So quick, you have to help you see,
by visiting our shops to have a spree!!
