#July Jewels #Handmade #Folksy

Time for a tribute to the July Jewels methinks. For those that don`t know, this is this month`s name for the daily listing club on Folksy. It`s a personal challenge to list an item each day in their Folksy shop. Those taking part support each other and help promote each others products. It`s a great idea and I have loved being a part of it for the last 10 months. I`m just taking 2 months off for some intensive crafting time to prepare for the winter season.
No don`t groan at the thought, although I can`t say I blame you, I would have done too a year ago. Now I realise that being prepared and having lots of creations ready to list will make life a little easier in the coming months. I have also realised that the right light, preferably daylight, makes a lot of difference too. So I will be trying to get as many of my creations photographed before the summer is over.
Although looking out of my window and considering that I am sitting here with a thick cardigan and socks with my jeans, I`d say it`s a bit far away at the minute. But you know our great British weather it can all change in an instant, so here`s hoping it returns quicksmart.
As ever, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to be taken to the shop.

Seasons they all come and go
in keeping with nature`s flow.
Spring is the time for budding
we hope there is no flooding.
Summer comes with leafy green
a wonderful sight to be see.
Autumn is a time for preparing
as we wonder how we`ll be faring,
through the winter`s dark and cold
bringing all family into the fold.
Gathering around the fire
hoping it won`t be too dire.
Glad when spring re-appears
and we can put aside our fears.
But for now, come back summer
cold and grey is a bummer.
All I want is warmth and sun
then my whingeing will be done!

  2. Hope the creating for winter is going well. Loads of crafters always get ready for Christmas etc about now. I know people who have started their Christmas cards!
    Thanks for including my earrings amongst this fab selection from the Jewels. You are so good to us.
    So many gorgeous picks. I especially love the mouse lizard and deer.

  3. Another fantastic selection! Thank you so much for including my ruby pendant. I think it is a great idea of yours to be making in preparation for the busy winter. I might just take a leaf out of your book and do the same!

    Love Jacqueline x

  4. Thank you for including one of my cards in your July Jewels selection today. It is an honour to appear amongst such talented creative people from Folksy. I love Colour Me Fun's crayons and have already bought some of the butterfly ones for a birthday on the 24th of this month. Good luck with your winter item preparation. I must admit I already have ideas for Christmas cards and will be making them in August I think.
