May Blossoms

Don’t you just love the blossom trees in May?  I think they are my most favourite thing about the month of May.  It is such a shame we have had so few sunny days to really enjoy them this year.  Today it is very windy too, so I wonder how much longer they will last – the wind blowing the beautiful blossoms to the ground.

May Blossoms is the name of the Folksy Daily Listing Club that I have joined this month.  It has been great being back with my fellow crafters, sellers and supportive folk after my three month break.  I felt at home straight away.  Natalie Ofkants does a brilliant job of keeping a tally of everyone sales.  It is great fun too, having a chat and supporting folk whatever they are experiencing. Most of all we get to see the beautiful items everyone has been making.  I just love it.

Today I am devoting my blog post to a small number of the daily listers – too many of us to include everyone!  I hope you will enjoy their crafts and a little about them too.  Please click on the photos and it will take you directly to their shop – stop and have a browse – you never know what you might discover!?

Meet Wendy, From Joan Cards
“The flowers I use are all hand picked and pressed ,mainly by myself ,in small quantities and as each flower is different no two cards are the same - the 'Cards are unique by nature'.”

Meet Armine, picocrafts
“My style is cute,shabby chic and vintage and I also love collecting fabrics and using them in my designs. I always try to make one of a kind items but if you like an item in my shop I will try to make a similar one for you.”

Meet Jacqueline, JAustenJewelleryDesign
“I get my inspriation from the beauty of nature and the stones themselves and have often designed a piece mentally, just on the first inspection of a focal pendant stone or faceted gem.

Meet Stephanie, Stephanie Short Stationery
“Ever since I can remember, I've always loved anything creative and crafty.  My first love was drawing and colouring in. All those lovely pens and pencils! Most of my designs are embellished with genuine swarovski crystals and gorgeous organza & satin ribbon, along with paints and a little bit of sparkle!

Meet Nora, Leah Rose Designs
 “I live in Camden, London the perfect place to get inspiration from all the vintage and unusual clothing and homeware for sale in the market. I sew, knit and crochet my own designs and my aim is to produce items that combine more than one technique. For example a fabric hat with knitted or crocheted trims.”

Meet Linda, Uniquely Your Designs. Accessories & Gifts for Adults, Children and Home.
“I love to crochet and knit, it`s a real passion. I also paint watercolours and love needle felting.  I don`t make anything to a pattern, so everything is unique for each unique person.

I hope you have enjoyed meeting some of the Folksy May Blossoms and  will visit their shops – they will certainly welcome your visit!  Next time I have a very special blog post about supporting charities with your craft work.  I hope you will come back for a read.
