I’ve been thinking I need to pay this site some attention. It does tend to get neglected in favour of my online shops, for instance. And so I think it needs to serve a different purpose, rather than feeling somehow like a kind of add on, an old friend you keep feeling bad about neglecting, when you’re really fond of them, actually. I think we need a new look, at least, and some serious thought put into what is needed from the site. So over the summer I’m going to brew up some ideas and see what I can come up with! In the meantime, here’s a pretty picture or two, and the promise of something just a little bit exciting coming up very soon!
These fun pillows are now available in my online shops at Folksy and Etsy. I’ve made them with a gorgeous, 70’s green flower print cotton fabric, teamed with a glorious orange and white spotty cotton….and trimmed with pom poms. They’ve cheered me up! And I hope you like them too.
I’ve started my online sale today! Use your coupon code at checkout in both my Etsy and Folksy shops to receive a 30% discount off everything! Yes, even items that are already on sale! So that amounts to big savings! The code you need for both shops is XMAS15. Don’t forget to use it!
Happy New Year to all my customers and handmade friends…..and see you in 2016!
2015 is almost over….How did that happen? Can it really be Christmas AGAIN? I’ve somehow done quite a bit of my festive shopping, much of it online, so some part of this truth must have dawned! And I might put up some decorations this weekend, and jolly the place up. This year has been a bit of a struggle, healthwise, and consequently I’m not doing my usual round of fairs and markets. For one thing I’ve had to cut right back on my making. But you can still shop with me, by visiting my Etsy and Folksy online shops! There are links here, on the right of the page. Or shop locally and visit Urban Folk in Shrewsbury (the cute place just up Grope Lane, for the uninitiated. It’s adorable; you have to visit). I’m going to be adding new items online and posting right up to Christmas. So have a peep and make life easy, by shopping from the comfort of home and knowing your order will be packed up and shipped to you super quickly…..Handmade and technology heaven!
You can now reorganise your Folksy shop better and add easily viewed collections…it has a lovely, fresh look that is gradually being rolled out across the site. Check back for a whole lot of new listings next week!
Get great savings in my online shops, starting today! Go to both my Folksy and Etsy shops. Money off at Folksy and 25% off all Etsy items! I hope you’ve had a Merry Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year!
I’m so pleased to have my little red lavender owl sitting amongst such lovely items in the ‘Inspirations’ section of the new, November issue of Handmade Living. He got sold actually, so time to replace him in the shop. In fact, time to start filling the shop for Christmas…

I have started to add items into my Folksy shop….at long last. So far there’s a little blue elephant, a gorgeous blue 70s fabric pony and a little lavender puppy….more coming soon…maybe even tonight! I’ll be interested to see how Folksy compares to Etsy…as it’s still in beta stage. Go over and have a look. www.folksy.com/shops/thewhistlingcowgirl
