Great blog Sasha @SashaGarrett and fab to put a face to the name and it’s wonderful to see your work on the front page
I don’t want to go to work today my mini kiln is arriving so I can’t wait to have a play, I got a small bag of silver clay just to start as I’m trying to wait until after my class next Tuesday before ordering any more so that I know what I’m buying, so impatient though lol
Hope you managed to catch up on sleep Sarah @SarahDesignsUK, not fun being tired in charge of busy kiddies
Hope you are feeling better today Brenda @teabreaks sending you a hug
Enjoy your company Caroling @carolinefrodsham
Well done on the Folks Fave Colleen @MidnightStarDesigns

Glad to hear you are feeling better Pauline @PollysWares138 and thank you for all your hard work with promotion of everyone, it’s much appreciated
Congratulations Helen @PocketfulCreations on your permanent job
Great read Sasha @SashaGarrett - looks like being a featured seller is quite a lot of work in terms of photos and words! Makes me quite glad I’ve never been chosen - wouldn’t have a clue what to say!
Well done on the job front Helen @PocketfulCreations, sounds ideal - I keep thinking I need to get a job but have no idea what I would be qualified to do - I’ve been out of the job market for so long. I think the last time I was employed by someone (rather than self employed) was before my children were born and my eldest is 22 now!
Dont really know whats wrong with me at the moment, I just cant seem to motivate myself to get on with anything much, not just the crafting but anything at all - I just seem to be drifting through the days not doing anything at all. Maybe its the weather! I did manage to finish this kingfisher yesterday but that was the sum total of my productivity!
Good morning everyone My new listing for today is these pretty fingerless gloves I have made so many of these I think I could make them in my sleep
Right I best get cracking as I have more photos to edit and list and a Post Office trip this morning xxx https://folksy.com/items/7163591-Crochet-green-dragonscale-dragon-crocodile-gloves
Thanks Max, I think sales might be quite sparse this month, so every one counts!
Sasha, @SashaGarrett what a lovely blog post, and lovely to see you too. It does look like hard work, I hope it generates some sales, your work is beautiful. And you’re such a helpful person to have on the forums too, you give such great advice.
Roz @OrchardFelts it surely has to be the weather that’s responsible for your lack of motivation. I can hardly get anything done, I feel so lethargic, I wonder how people keep going! I applied for some jobs after a similar period of time to you, if not longer. Interestingly, despite only being self employed for so long, I had several interviews, only to find out later that the jobs were mostly spoken for anyway! However, I’m now really glad I didn’t go down that route, I’ve been self employed so long, I’d hate to be employed! Just keep on going, and enjoy
I’m wondering whether I should keep a weekly planner again like I did when my children were growing up, with things that had to be done on one page, and things I wanted to get done on another page.and I took great delight in crossing them off when completed. Does anyone else do this? I’d be interested to know how other people keep themselves motivated.
a relist from me today
They look like gorgeous blackberries!
Morning! At last a new listing from me! https://folksy.com/items/7163563-Tree-of-life-beaded-suncatcher-gemstone
Morning all x Aw big congrats @SashaGarrett Sasha, great article and your work is stunning, hope you get loads of sales and exposure!
Heres mine for today
A relist today while getting some new items ready. Three different sizes available.
I’m a lot less achy today thanks Max @MaxPringJewellery.
We have yet another weather warning for rain and storms later this afternoon. We’ve had warnings on and off for weeks not but nothing ever materialises.
I finally have a new item to show
Hi Sue @Sue Trevor - I keep myself motivated by looking at all the materials and beads I have accumulated over the years and thinking “must use all this stuff up before I drop off the perch”!!
We’re still in the grip of a heatwave here in Kent but cooler weather is expected tomorrow. It’s too hot in my conservatory (workroom) to make anything so here is another re-list.
Feeling much brighter today as I didn’t have pains in my legs last night so slept all through.
Great to put a face to your name @SashaGarrett great blog
Today’s offering is a beaded Christmas tree decoration, hope it’s not too early for the C word.
Mor … Afternoon,
Nothing new yet today but I have a sparkling oven, washing on the line and tried my new vacuum cleaner. Oh dear, it needed emptying after doing just the hallway, picking much more than my old hoover.
So, a cheeky realist
Afternoon all . Have grabbed a second; but only to relist these Things to finish staring at me on the table . Perhaps tomorrow
Have a good day all . Raining here …
Your featured maker blog is great Sasha @SashaGarrett I am sure it will bring extra interest to your work . Well done on the hard work completing all that
help…I actually just got my Bill from Folksy…are admin having problems?. I clicked on the “pay Here” button AND got the page unfound. notice…SO I tried again…same thing, so I went through my folksy shop and was able to pay my bill.
I got the email saying that it has been paid…and under BILL, is says nothing is now due, but on my dashboard it shows that I still owe the outstanding amount?..
Should I just wait or contact admin?
