Boot Camp Babes #Handmade #Folksy

Thought I would do my bit for the boot campers today. I was very good the first week but have not been so good this week. Monday passed me by entirely and Tuesday, when I remembered I did make the effort to do my bit and go tweeting other members.
For those that don`t know the boot camp was started by Maram of Maram Jewellery as a way of encouraging us all to promote more as sales up to that point had been very slow. So we have been encouraged to use Stumble Upon, Twitter, Pinterest, Craftjuice and Facebook. This is very helpful for newer sellers who haven`t yet had time to find out about all these things. Although it`s probably quite overwhelming if you`ve never done any of them.
I do already and have for some time, belonged to all of those and more, but it`s good to be reminded to use them. When you get busy some things tend to slip and once you get out of the habit it`s harder to get back into it.
What did I do yesterday.... Yes, I remember now, as if I could forget. I went into the dreaded city for more yarn. I was in the shop for ages, humming and haaaing over the right colour to get. My daughter wanted purple but purple varies so widely, although she did help by saying similiar to a top I had on. So that did make it a bit easier. It was quite crowded, with people everywhere, ambling along. I know it`s great to amble if you have the time but I don`t. I do tend to get impatient when people stop dead in front of me or go at a snails pace because they are chatting. I just want to get what I have to and get home. I think I must be getting old and grumpy. Am I? Maybe a little or maybe just eccentric. I think I prefer eccentric.
We picked our grandson up from school and I popped there after tea to babysit for a while.
I won`t mention the housework I did in the morning as I`m still traumatised from it.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

The Boot Camp Babes are on show
doesn`t the thought make you glow.
We`re busy making all day long
occasionally breaking into song.
We do it cos we love it so much,
right down to the last finishing touch.
But we have to sell what we make
else we won`t be able to eat cake!
Not really, we sell just to buy more,
love sending those things out the door.
Then we can rush off for more supplies
creating and hoping that this too flies
out of the shop and on it`s way
to make way for more creative play.
We pray to the sales fairy, visit us.
Come on it`s shopping without fuss.
The stocks really need to go down
mine are making my hubby frown.
But I can`t stop making something new,
without crafting I would be blue.
The ideas still keep flowing free,
just pouring out endlessly you see.
The brain works on all through the night
and by morning I`m quite a sight.
Luckily for you, you can`t see me
otherwise you would probably FLEE!!
