May Daze #Folksy

Today it`s for trying to get back on track, into the groove.... and stuff. I`ve not really got going much since my holiday, especially coming back a bit under the weather. This was of course drastically improved by having a wonderful birthday but didn`t help with the getting back into it all.
Regular blogging does take a lot of time and brain power.(Well I like to think so anyaway.) The chat bit doesn`t of course, because as you know, I find that easy generally. Although there are occasions when for some strange reason I can`t think of much to say, usually when I have been at work all day and feel exhausted.
Ooops, I`m digressing again.....shocking.
What was I saying? Ah yes, getting back on track.
Well this month I am going to try and take part in the daily listing club on Folksy again. Last month I managed about half the month, if that, due to holiday.
So I shall give it another go for May at least and then probably take 3 months off from listing to prepare for the winter season. But it does of course depend on how things go. If sales suddenly pick up then I will carry on for longer. I do of course want to make the time for all the new crafts I learnt, while away. Ideas are buzzing around in my head, so many ideas and so little time, as usual.
Anyway.... this months listing club on Folksy is called May Daze... and the name has finally clicked. Very clever.
As usual the inestimable Natalie will be at the helm, steering us all through the rapids to calmer waters when needed. Cheering us on and celebrating all good things, especially sales.
It does become rather an addiction, this listing club lark. The amount of times I`ve looked on the club thread and found myself clicking through all the listings without even thinking about it, is unbelievable. And that`s when I`m not taking part!
So today I am showing a selection from the May Daze listing club. I hope you enjoy these fabulous creations.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

I can`t believe that May is here,
it`s racing away fast this year.
Summer should be sneaking in
but that idea is in the bin.
Instead we have endless rain
day after day and then again.
Riverbanks are starting to burst
yet still the ground does thirst.
Well, so these experts say,
what do they know anyway?
All we want is warmth and sun
preferably before the summer is done.
Maybe we are having bad weather now
so that soon a heatwave can take a bow.
Now wouldn`t that be divine
basking in the sun, so fine.
Actually we need our changeable weather
though it drives us to the end of our tether.
Else what would we all have to discuss?
If not the weather, to have a fuss!!

  1. linda...youve hit the nail on the head!

    the daily listng does become habit and when i dont do it im in a permanent fuzz of "ive forgotten to do something!" lol

    thank you so much for featuring my red hat...i thought with the weather being so vile i would chance some items that were a bit more suited to the cooler (read rubbish!) weather we have been having!

  2. That hat would look great any time of year. I think daily listing is an addiction.

  6. I didn't realise that the daily listing club would hook people in so well! It seems to be inevitable though, so I shall just have to give in to another online addiction (sigh!). I just hope I can keep up with the listings!

    Thank you for including my bracelet.

  7. Thanks for including my mosaic in your May Daze selection. Last time I took part in the daily listing thread it definately lead to sales, unfortunately I think I spent all the money I made buying other people's stuff :-) because it is all so tempting!! Michele x
