Purple Delight #Handmade #Folksy

Haven`t had Purple for a while and I just had the urge to display it here for you today.
I find it such an uplifting colour and love the variety of shades. The best part is that there are such a variety of crafts with part or all purple so it`s easy to wear or carry or have in your home. Come to that it`s great to give too whether as a gift or as a card. I hope you like the choices I`ve made here for you today. If you get the chance do have a browse through the shops and see all their other beautiful items. You never know, you might just discover that perfect gift for a friend or relative.
Yesterday I went swimming with my younger daughter and her fiance at the health club they belong to. I haven`t been swimming for two and a half years due to a few health challenges and I really enjoyed it. I used to swim at least 4 times a week and today I realised how much I missed it. Now I wouldn`t have the time to go that often, especially as it was a 25 minute walk there and back. A good two hour chunk out of the day is not something I can manage now, but I will go again.
Now of course my day is taken up with shops and websites, promoting and blogging, not to mention the time spent creating. Just to add to it all I have re-opened my Etsy shop to give that site another try. I have joined a listing club on there too, called Crafty Folk, so it won`t be long before you see blogs from there too.
I was busy preparing parcels to go to the post office, sales made on the two Bank Holidays. So that is what I shall be doing this morning, walking to the post office will be the first job. Usually then the recipients get them the next day.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

New year excitement is still high
each new sale has made me sigh.
With a great big smile on my face
I`m more than happy to keep up the pace.
It`s been sales all round for many folk,
quite amazing, it`s no joke.
New Year energy is spreading round
as sales fairy dust sprinkles the ground.
It`s a fabulous start to the New Year
as everyone gets into high gear.
The doom and gloom has all disappeared,
nothing is as bad as we feared.
This year will be better than ever
and I think that`s very clever.
For crafty folk it`s highs and lows
it doesn`t take much to return the glows.
We do what we love and love what we do
which is creating especially for you.
