Do It With Wood! #Folksy

I did a blog post the other day titled Do it with Cotton. That one gave me the idea for this one. I thought it might be a nice idea to maybe have a series of Do it with.. blogs.
I don`t know about you, but I love wood. The grain, the smoothness and the warmth all just make it special. I think it holds a fascination for many of us.
Some of these items today are made from reclaimed wood which is brilliant as is any recycling. We all need to do our bit for the planet.
Now I know I have said this before and then lapsed, but this time I shall try harder. I really am going to cut down on blogging, at least for the summer. The intention is to do 4 a week which will free up quite a bit of time for my crafting. Hopefully it will work out, I`ll have to see. I have planned to do 1 for Monday & Tuesday, then Wednesday & Thursday, Friday & Saturday and a stand alone on Sunday but that could change a bit when I`m away. I am on holiday in June so may well close down for the whole month, I`ll see.
Anyway, it`s nice to see the sun staying with us and the temperatures warming up as well, just what we all need.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!
A Poem I wrote a few weeks ago.

We are the human race
and set up quite a pace.
We strive for the new
and that is the glue
that holds us all together
as united we weather
everything life throws at us
we carry on without a fuss.
In good times we drift apart,
in bad we remember our heart.
Adversity makes us strong
then we fight against all wrong.
Now we must stand and fight
to bring back the light.
There`s damage to repair,
it`s time for all to care!

  1. hi Linda
    many thanks for posting my stylised barn owl. I am very new to this process and have just started on Folksy.
    I also have a few carvings of owls and birds of prey but unfortunately cannot include them on Folksy as they would not be safe in the post. regards

  2. You are welcome Paul. Might be worth while looking into different type of packaging.
    Thank you for commenting.
