Handmade Crafts #Folksy

Lot`s of different crafts today to no particular theme, just that I liked them and they caught my eye as I looked through the listings on Folksy. Lot`s of people are having to buy birthday or other special occasion gifts and it`s nice to have things on here that aren`t overtly Christmassy although a few are. Sorry, but at this time of year I just can`t resist, I`m a sucker for christmas things.
I seem to have a real `thing`for sparkles this year and have made sparkly hats as well as adding sparkly yarns to other creations. I just think it adds to the beauty and brightens us all up a little bit. The other thing is that these items are great for day or evening wear.
I finished the red hat I was making as I told you and am having a go at a different style of hat. Simultaneously I am making a beret, but still haven`t made a start on the scarf ideas that are brewing. I`ll get there though.
It was a beautiful day in Norfolk yesterday and we went to the Broads at Wroxham to do some shopping and watched the two youngest grandchildren feed the ducks and swans. The two year old was a bit startled when a swan snatched a piece of bread from his hand because he was a bit slow throwing it. Bless him.
The other week we were saying that sales on the Folksy site were slow and some were coming up with things they had to tempt the sales fairy into their shops, like chocolate and cakes etc. So I added a couple of little verses to the thread just for fun. So I have decided to put them on here today to amuse you.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
Have FUN and ENJOY!!!

Sales fairy we are missing you
just what do we have to do?
Please come visit, see what we`ve got
I promise you that we have a lot.
Winter warmers and gifts galore
and oh, so much more.
Come visit we`ll make it worthwhile
if only because of the smile
that will appear on my face
once you set a buying pace.

Please sales fairy won`t you come and view
the delightful goodies in my shop for you.
Such a variety, you wouldn`t believe
and still more ideas up my sleeve.
So please help me out and buy a few
because then that will be my cue
to make even more delicious delights
so wonderful they might cause fights.
So come along quick, all One Of A Kind
if you want to buy lot`s, I don`t mind!
