I’ve had a kind of cruddy week and right now I just kind of want to hide somewhere dark and quiet, maybe under the sea. Hang out with narwhals or something, I don’t know. I just can’t face things right now, particularly PhD stuff, so I thought it might be time to take a wee break and concentrate on art a little bit instead.

I’ve neglected my shops something horrible for a while now, especially my poor Folksy shop. In fact, I was kind of considering closing it down. But I recently made a sale through the shop (yay!) and through that realised a lot of my listings were about to expire, and I figured it was time to maybe give it a little TLC instead. In the course of that, I started browsing to see what my fellow Folksy sellers had been up to, and found some really lovely finds. And then I realised it was Friday, so what better way to highlight these things than with a Folksy Friday post?

The theme is vaguely ‘From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea’ – I’ve been listening to a lot of Cure songs lately, can’t you tell? 😉 And if you see something here you like amongst these lovely pieces of handcraftery, please show these sellers some love and go click on their shops, favourite them, maybe even buy a little something…? 😉 Enjoy!

MTA: Apparently this is my 100th blog post! To celebrate, I’ve decided to do a little giveaway for my subscribers. Subscribe to get updates from this blog, and I will choose a random subscriber from a hat next Friday (May 9th), who can choose a favourite print for free. 🙂

Only me, popping my head round to say hello again after another eon away. I finally have some time on my hands, just in time for uni to start up again after Easter, and thought I’d been neglecting my shops for quite some time. I decided to have a look round Folksy again, see what my fellow sellers have been up to. I’m currently working on a painting(!) of sunflowers. It’s going to be a giant one. I guess I was in the mood for some YELLOW. After the initial background was filled in mostly, I kind of lost steam, so have decided to look around for inspiration. So this week’s Folksy Friday – my first in quite some time – is on all things sunflowery. All that yellow will have to do to cheer me up for now, in lieu of the springy/summery weather we really SHOULD be having this time of the year… grrr.

Enjoy! 🙂
