July Jesters

I have taken part in the July Jesters challenge on Folksy this month, which involved listing at least one item every day and promoting your items as well as others.  I've been ridiculously busy this month, both with my little lovelies, and other stuff, so haven't really had chance to feature any other Jesters.  So this is a selection of my favourite items from my fellow Jesters:


I don't drink coffee or tea, but am tempted to get one of these for my hot chocolates :)from Lemonade and Lamingtons

This gorgeous necklace is from Whimsical Wren Jewellery

Liz from The Little Bead Box keeps trying to bankrupt me with the gorgeous things she keeps listing, such as these gorgeous gem stones
If only I had a little star to buy this for! Cheerymishmash has some great batik designs
Beata from Iyobo Design is a genius with polymer clay and inspiration for what I can aspire to do.  I absolutely adore this bracelet.

Commission for Katryn

One of my lovely friends asked me if I could make her a charm bracelet for her to wear to a friend's wedding.  She wanted it to be a bit about her, about about the happy couple, and a little bit about me, so we sat down and discussed the details, then she left me to it - and here are the results:





Snail Jam (almost....)

I've spent a lovely afternoon making blackcurrant jam with my mum, from fruit grown at her allotment.  Luckily I spotted this little fella before we started boiling it up!

What I did this weekend :)

Yet another busy weekend, but very nice and very productive...

Saturday - I travelled through to Sheffield to take a look at the Craft Candy CandyFloss Fair and meet my best friend David for lunch.  The fair was good, and very inspiring, lot of lovely sellers such as the fabulous Kirsten of Quernus Crafts and Imogen's Imagination, and me and David managed to eat a LOT of food at Cafe Rouge, finished off with cupcakes from Fancie.

Sunday - well, Sunday, I went over to Blackburn to meet a lovely man called John and his wife Gwen, who are friends of Jax from PRINT for LOVE of WOOD.  John is a miracle worker who managed to get my lovely old Adana Number 2 High Speed working again, cleaning it up and giving me a crash course in letterpress too.  All I  need now are some rollers and runners (oh, and some ink) and I'll be up and running and showing you my experiments!  Both John and Jax are so lovely, and so inspirational that I deny anyone to spend more than 5 minutes with them and not be inspired by their love of printing and want to give it a go themselves.   

Today's July Jester's listing

Just a quick post before I go to bed with an awful headache - here's today's listing -

sorry - another listing

All I'm finding time to do is post my listings on here, so  I want to apologise. I really don't want this blog just to be one big sales pitch, it's just that July is an increasingly busy month!

I'm hoping to get things back under control this weekend, then you should have lots of interesting blog posts to read :)

In the meantime.... here's today's listing:
