Guilty Pleasures

We all have them!  Guilty pleasures! That thing we do when we feel slightly uncomfortable or even guilty, but still derive pleasure from it.  It if is a secret pleasure even better, because you can enjoy all the more knowing that no one only yourself knows about it!

I am not going to divulge my guilty pleasures, but I am going to do something I feel slightly uncomfortable about, but it secretly gives me some pleasure to do!

I am going to tell you what my customers say...about my handmade creations!  It is very pleasing when you get good feedback from customers and I really appreciate it.  It just makes everything I do so worthwhile especially when I am making someone happy with what they have purchased.

I did share some feedback some while ago, but I thought it was time to share some more of the feedback I have received from customers, so that (hopefully) it will inspire you to buy items from my folksy shop with confidence!

I am also going to share with you items that are currently available in my shop and...  be assured they would all really welcome a new home!
“Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, and so beautifully wrapped and presented. I now have my first Christmas present. Thank you.”
“I love the note book. It's really beautiful & I'm going to use it to jot down my craft ideas! Thank you!”

“The journal is gorgeous and will be put away for a birthday gift for my daughter.”

Bags and totes
“I received my bag today it is lovely and very well made to a high standard, very quick delivery and great communication. Thank you very much for the lovely bag.”
“Beautiful little bag, one I have had my eye on for a while! So pleased it is mine! Thank you so much!!!!”
“Nice bag, bought as a present for my sister hope she likes it as much as I do! Speedy delivery and very well made :)”
“Beautiful Bag from lovely seller/maker, Highly Recommended to all, such lovely work. Thank You.”
“Beautiful bag and extremely well made as usual!”
“Lovely bags very well made, pleased with my purchases and the prompt delivery. Thank you.”
Pencil cases
“What a joy opening the package, beautifully wrapped and a really gorgeous beautifully made pencil case, very happy, Thank you!”
“Edwina, Emily is thrilled with her pencil case, she was eagerly awaiting the post man and she said she loved the paper it was wrapped in too, thank you for making my daughter happy :)”
“I love it :)) very well made quality item, As described, quick delivery, lovely packaging, would buy from again. Thank you.”
“Beautifully packaged, arrived quickly. Love both purses. Many thanks.”
“Beautiful purse, thanks for sending so quickly.”
“Arrived yesterday beautifully wrapped and made - would definitely recommend for a normal or custom order! Thanks again! x”
“The lovely little red purse will make a lovely gift for someone, a great seller with great well made items!”

This is just a selection of the positive feedback that I have received and all of it so encouraging!
And finally...
Rainfall in the month of June has been the worse recorded in a 100 years –
It has certainly been cold, windy, cloudy and dark and not at all like June at all!!!
Let’s hope we see more sunshine in July!!
Sales this month have also been the worse since I joined Folksy last October, but as another seller pointed out to me “it is swings and roundabouts”.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that July will be a better month, so if you can help me in this please do purchase something – you won’t be disappointed.
In my next blog post I hope to feature some gorgeous makes from other folksy sellers, so if you have something you would like to share please send me the URL and I will be happy to include it!  I shall build a theme around whatever you decide to send.

  1. Hi Edwina, what a lovely blog. By the way, you messaged me earlier on Folksy about featuring one of my items tomorrow. Thank you again, that's fab!
    Your work is so pretty, so eye catching, so colourful and so practical also.
    I've just begun to blog again after a period of five years not doing so, and my blog looks pretty gloomy compared to yours here! I shall need to do something about that.
    My main game is on Etsy, not had a shop with Folksy for long.
    As for the rain in June, no comment. As for the continued rain in July ... grrrgghhh .... NO comment.
    So, I look forward to your blog tomorrow.
    Oh and give me some time and I shall feature you on mine, okay.
    Night night
