Wonderful Folksy Folk!

If you visit the Folksy forums frequently then you will know what a bunch of wonderful people they are on there! Always ready to offer advice and support and words of wisdom to those of us who maybe are not as clued up as the rest of them when it comes to tweeting or blogging or getting your craft stuff out there and being noticed!

One of the things that I really like about the forums is the swops that different people organise and I recently took part in a couple.

The first was a Valentine's swop organised by noodleBubble http://www.folksy.com/shops/noodleBubble

I sent my swop to graciesgardenbazaar http://www.folksy.com/shops/graciesgardenbazaar

It was a nice little pink heart pendant!

In return, I got a lovely swop from sophiecat

A lovely purple squishy heart and a pretty card! There was also some chocolate - but you didn't expect me to photograph that, did you!!!!!

The second swop was organised by jewelbox

I received a lovely woolly brooch by HandmadeRevolution

Now I have to admit, that what happened next was entirely my
fault! I forgot that I had agreeded to the swop and never sent mine off when I should have done! It was only a week or so later that I realised what had happened and frantically tried to find out who it was that I should have sent my swop too!
After a few messages to jewelbox I found the address of my swoppee and made contact to apologise!
The lovely susiej http://www.folksy.com/shops/susiej must have thought that she's been forgotten in the swop! But I apologised and made her a lovely pair of earrings and a little mobile phone charm! However in the rush to get them in the post, I forgot to photograph them!!
Anyway, all is now well in the land of Folksy swops and I am looking forward to the next one! I promise to remember to make and post the next one aswell!!!!!!!
