I'm featured!

It's Handmade Monday! time :) Be sure to check out the link to Wendy's blog for details on how to take part, it is a great way to get views and helpful comments. I must apologise that I haven't been commenting on other posts as much, I seem to be rubbish at time management at the moment.. something I will improve!

I woke up to some great news, I have been picked as this weeks featured seller on the craftyfolk Etsy team. I never win anything so I was shocked and very chuffed! I have had some gorgeous treasuries made featuring the items from my shop and the views to my shop have shot up :)  Have a look here for the details of how to take part in the weekly challenge and also for some links to the treasuries that have been made for me.

I started a new hobby on Sunday, it involves shooting pointy things at round things... have you guessed? It's archery! Me and a friend have started a beginners course which lasts for the next 5 weeks, in which time I hope to improve. I wanted to take up a sport that someone with as rubbish lungs as me could do but wow, it is hard work pulling that string back and my  muscles feel like they have had a real work out. It was a little embarrassing that out of the 12 of us there, I was the only one who missed the target a few times and I had my bow (that was about two inches shorter than me) swapped for a baby one, but on the whole I absolutely loved it. There is a competition on the last week with an actual trophy which obviously I am going to win hehehe!

I have added a few new things to my shop this week which you can see below, just click the photo to be taken to the shop.

Have a great week!


  1. Well done on being featured - that's always good news! Also well done on getting out there and having a go at archery - I wouldn't worry about not being the best one there because you're doing it for you and nobody else. It's another achievement, whatever happens. And the jewellery is just lovely x

  2. Congratulations! My Dad's neighbour was a champion archer and she loved it. Said it was just great fun. xx

  3. Sounds like a really good week. Archery has always appealed to me, but have done nothing about it and we now have a local archery club so perhaps I should follow your lead. Hope you are enjoying it. Well done on being featured by Etsy. Hope you have a good week.

  4. Congratulations on being featured. I really like the bell bracelet in particular but it is all lovely. Have a good week.

  5. I've always fancied archery :)

    I've had a go at archery a couple of times, and was grateful just to hit the board!

  7. Well Done on being featured!Love these,especially the pink and black ones.

  8. congratulations on being featured in all those treasuries that's fantastic!
