Folksy Shop

I've decided to open a shop on Folksy and have put the link here on the blog. I have not listed anything in the shop yet but on my return to the UK I will be starting it up so watch this space!!!!

Well, I've not made anything new to put onto my blog recently, this is because I have been in the US since 3 February!!!! I have instead been putting my time to good use picking up craft bargains to use when I get back home!!!! I have been lucky as there have been lots of sales here and I found a lovely Japanese version of a pound store!!! I managed to pick up some rolls of felt and some washi paper which gives a lovely rough edged effect when you tear it all for only $1.50!!!!

The craft shops in the US are so much better than the ones that we have in the UK. Apart from being much cheaper, they have a much better range of things. My favourite shops in the US are Jo-anns and Michaels. Jo-anns has an online shop where they have much, much more than they have instore. Unfortunately, they do not take international orders yet!!! I've ordered whilst here and I am now waiting for a scoreboard to come which will allow me to be more experimental with card shapes and handmade boxes. The other good thing about the craft stores here is that there are usually 40-50% off vouchers around that you can use off of one item. This is great if there is an expensive punch or piece of equipment that you need.
