Just Because... #FolksyFriday

Todays gorgeous array comes from Folksy, in case you didn`t guess from the title. I just happened to look at the new listings and that was it, off I went. They were added Just Because.. I loved the colour, they were cute, downright beautiful, something different and many more reasons. Basically I just loved the look of all these wonderful creations and I thought that you might too.
Can`t believe that Friday has come round so fast and can`t believe that it`s Easter already. I suppose I shall have to force down some chocolate, `Just because` it`s the done thing. Not to mention forcing down hot cross buns. Oh dear, the things I have to do. Tee Hee!!
Today is a momentous day too `Just Because` it is my youngest daughters birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Vickie!!!!!!!!
She has packed an awful lot into the last year... starting with getting engaged on her birthday last year. Then they packed up and went to live and work in Switzerland for 6 months, having decided to start planning the weddding too, which happened in February. Quite a life changing 12 months, now I`m wondering what the next 12 months will bring.
Yesterday I was busy shopping for food etc for the Easter weekend. I am cooking for several of us on Sunday, when we will be celebrating two birthdays. My daughters again and her Mother in Law`s too. She really got lucky with her in laws as they are really lovely people and we get on very well with them.
Anyway I`m digressing, that`s probably the only real cooking I`ll be doing as we are out for dinner Saturday night and maybe have a takeaway or something another night. Mmmm... there`s a thought. Trying to think when we last had a takeaway... several months I think, maybe longer.
Some shoe clips I ordered have arrived, so I am busy making some of those. I had made a few flowers in readiness but will do more and get them listed. I think they are a great idea to give shoes or sandals a different look, especially on holiday. With all the restrictions on baggage, thats one way of making them look different.
The rain finally stopped here in Norfolk. We did have sun, but it was windy and cold. I definitely preferred the spring weather.
I started a rhyme, stopped to check the listing club and saw a few comments about lack of sales so added a rhyme. I`ve popped that on here too, just for fun. Adding daft rhymes seems to make people smile, so that`s a good thing. Right? They say variety is the spice of life.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Now that Easter`s finally here,
Spring has vanished, that is clear.
I can`t paint, I`ve run out of card
for watercolour ACEO`s, that`s hard.
Only just got started again,
shop had run out, what a pain.
Probably won`t get much crafting done
I`ll be much too busy having fun.
Although, for me, craftings a delight
making the time is often a fight.

I went on a thread and wrote this rhyme
didn`t take very much of my time.

The sales fairy hid away in March,
was she being coy or arch?
For some of us the month was dire
didn`t exactly set us on fire.
But now a new month is here
where the sales fairy is, isn`t clear.
I know she`s busy on the `other side`
is that where she plans to hide.
Come on sales fairy, it`s only fair
to divide your time and share
your sales dust all around
and sprinkle it merrily on the ground.
I`d like a visit, a sale or two
will even spare chocolate for you.
Just 1 sale, make the move
to get me back in the groove.
Folksy sales are down in the dumps,
rating with life`s knocks and bumps.
So come and visit us all today
choccy`s on offer. What do you say?
