Gift Ideas #WowWednesday

Well here we are Wednesday again and already the 5th of the month. Eeek! Thought we better get going on gift ideas before we run out of time altogether.
As you can see it`s a WowWednesday day, which of course means that all the delectable goodies come from Wow Thank You.
If you haven`t visited the site yet, do go and have a look. All Uk sellers and everything handmade crafts. This is one site that only promotes and allows handmade crafts to be sold on it`s site.
Saying that kind of reminds me of a small `craft fair` I visited outside a mall in Norwich. First visit the other week and only 2 of the stalls were actually crafts. The rest were clearly bought in stuff. have to say it does make me angry to see cheap imports passed off as crafts because it gives real crafter`s a bad name.
I`ve heard so many crafter`s complain about lack of people and sales at craft fairs this year and they complain about the stalls that are allowed to sell imports.
So why aren`t people going to craft fairs anymore? Mainly because the cheap imported stuff they buy as `Crafts` probably fall apart 5 minutes later and it puts them off ever going to one again. If you go to a craft fair, look carefully at what you buy and the seller. A real crafter is not wasting her time in the quiet minutes, she is busy crafting and drawing evil looks from the non crafter`s, pretending they are. If it`s very cheap then it has been bought elsewhere, very likely from abroad and made in a sweat shop.
Okay rant over.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Christmas is close. Have you started yet?
Hurry up now, there`s so much to get.
Leave it too long, the best will be gone
and you won`t get the best for the `Special One`.
I do think that the guys are the worst
they never get their gifts first.
Most seem to go out Christmas Eve
hoping to pull magic from their sleeve.
Why, oh why, do they leave it so late
and then have to suffer a terrible fate?
It`s their life ruined for the next year.
If only they`d got their a***e into gear!
They seem to do it again and again,
it`s enough to drive you insane.
My hubby does exactly the same
seems to think it`s some kind of game.
After 38 years I`ve given up trying
and don`t even bother with the sighing.
He is what he is, I`ve accepted it now
and hardly even raise an eyebrow!!
