... is what I do rather well and a few days ago I had a good old shopping spree on Folksy. For the uninitiated Folksy is a website dedicated to selling wares from makers of all things crafty. Everything is unique, handmade and gorgeous. The sellers are lovely, helpful and talented bunch and everything is priced very reasonably. I'm proud to be one of the Folksters with my own little shop there. Yes you guessed it - MrsGKnits! But back to my purchase showcase...
These are the lovely items I picked this time and the links to the shops in case you're experiencing a serious envy right now...
Christmas Lavender Heart from pretty goods
Angel Bookmark from Talking Beads
African Jade earrings from Trinket Box
My Beady Eye
Confetti Corsage from midsummerstitches
Of course the general idea was to acquire some lovely handmade gifts for my friends, but I'm really tempted to keep the lot for myself - greed not so in keeping with the Christmas spirit.
All that's left to say is that if you're still stuck for a few gifts and need nice ideas visit the shops above, have a good browse on Folksy.You'll get faboulous goodies, great customer service and you won't be disapointed.
