Hello!
As this is the place for newbies to introduce themselves, that’s what I shall do!

I’m Lisa Kaminski-Dale, I live in Leeds but am from Penrith in Cumbria, and my shop is called Lisa Lampshades, so no prizes for guessing what I make.

The easiest way to tell you all about myself is this blog >> http://www.needcrafters.co.uk/solo-businesswoman-lisa-lampshades/ (I look really stern on the picture. I’m usually smiling, honest!)

And here’s the link to my shop >> https://folksy.com/shops/LisaLampshades

Really looking forward to learning more about Folksy, getting to know y’all and of course, doing a bit of selling!

Hi my name is Caroline and I am a mum of 2 girls and pyrograph lovely wooden things at my kitchen table, between the school runs. I have been listing a few little bits on Folksy for a while and sold a bit too, but am still struggling to find my way around the Talk Folksy forums! How do other people figure it out??!! I love to be able to show my work in the gift guides but don’t know how to add pictures and links. HELP!
I love looking at other peoples post and pics though. :smiley:

Hello, Emma here from Saltmarsh and Samphire. We opened a Folksy shop a couple of years ago, and then got a bit sidetracked with opening a bricks and mortar shop in Norfolk. We are so excited to be back in the friendly Folksy world now though! :smiley:

Hi just thought I would introduce myself. Pisceshomecrafts is my shop and I sell and make leather cat collars. I am new to using forums and not quite sure about it.


(Impoftheyard) #27

Hi all,

My name’s Irene. I opened my shop Impoftheyard’s beadystuff a few years ago and sold a few items made with various kinds of beads. The shop was then abandond d for some time as other things in life took over. I have since learned a few new skills - particularly with silver and copper. I have therefore changed the name to imp of the yard’s craftystuff.

Imp of the yard is the nickname my brother gave me as a baby - my initials spell imp - and it has been a useful internet name due to its uniqueness.

At the moment I am focussing on jewellery but I may add other crafts or artwork to the shop using existing skills such as knitting, drawing or painting or developing new ones.

At the moment my focus is to break through my tendencies to put off doing some of the things I most enjoy - making things - and just do it and upload to the shop. I am still very much learning and hope to refine my practices as I go along,

I have very much a magpie tendency so my inspirations are from many sources - from all of your beautiful work, from nature by way of beautiful stones and also natural forms. Some of my creations are inventented on the spot and others have been thought about longer. I’ve taken to sitting in cafes with a coffee and a notebook and jotting down ideas and drawing anything I see around me which may be converted into a piece of jewellery.

Best wishes to all,

Irene

(CushionCo) #33

Hi…KBCreations
Sorry for the inconvenience, I don’t have Folksy Shop yet. I am about to have one soon…


(Ali Millard) #34

Are you based in OZ or the UK? @CushionCo


(CushionCo) #35

Hi millyandpip
I based in Oz


(Ali Millard) #36

Hi @CushionCo I’m afraid that you must be UK based to sell on Folksy. It’s specifically for UK sellers


(CushionCo) #37

This is sad…
Can I get involved in the conversations just to get new ideas?


(francescaburke) #38

Hi, I thought I’d introduce myself as I’ve just joined Folksy as a customer and as a seller. I’ve been on an, ahem, other craft site for a few years and one of my new year’s resolutions is to branch out with my work and try new things, so here I am! I design stationery, accessories and art and also write stories. Nice to meet you all. :slight_smile:

Hi, I am Paul and I have opened up a shop called The Copper Cave. I am semi-retired so I thought I would have a go at making some jewellery with gemstones and copper.
