Another beautiful day, hope everyone has the same, washing done and out on the line :sunny:

Please, please, if anyone has any ideas for weekly themes, please let me know, Steph is still in hospital so need all the help I can get, or if anyone would like to take over fortnightly temporarily until Steph returns, that would be a big help.


Anyway here is mine to kickstart the week

I appreciate your help soooo much

This is a card I love because I collect 1930’s jugs and this is my favourite, hand painted made in Devon clay but no name. I had to draw it with some flowers in that my youngest bought me ( I have a plastic pot inside it for flowers!)

Another beautiful day and it looks set to last to the weekend. Good news for the Royal Wedding.

Hope everyone ok and enjoying the sunshine.

Had a recent customer returning one of my parchment cards with very unpleasant comments. Referring to it as decoupage, which it isn’t!!! and not fit to send to anyone. Feel like I have been kicked in the stomach. Not sure how to reply, think I will wait a day so I can calm down.

Anything like this happened to anyone? How did you feel? and react?

Anyway from a very deflated me

I am loving this latest pen and ink style card.

HI everyone,

I haven’t had that happen, yet Carol @cariadcrafts11 don’t worry, think of all the cards that have been very happily received. Try not to feel deflated by those unkind comments, this is only one person and clearly not the view of your other customers. I would just refund, say sorry to hear it wasn’t what they expected and let it go, you just can’t please everyone. :roll_eyes:

Thinking of the Wedding, thought I’d share my sunny bouquet :slight_smile:

Tina @DaisyWings, thank you for your wise words. I have received loads of support from other Folksy sellers, on the 365 daily listers challenge too, so I am trying to concentrate on the positives. This is the first negative I have ever received and I must admit, it floored me. But onwards and upwards now.

Here is mine for today

I love this fun card, and describes me to a T.

Yay lovely and sunny again. More washing done and out, laundry basket now empty :-)))

Hope everyone ok, how many are going to watch ‘the wedding’? Much to my OH dismay, I will, just love to see what all the latest fashion and, of course, Meghan’s dress.

Enjoy your Friday

Here is my romantic one today
