(Sue Mellem) #1

Welcome to the May - June Weekly listings and promotions thread!

Everyone welcome – this is a special place to showcase your listings if you only list weekly or even monthly

Please feel free to join in – don’t feel that you have to ask or wait to be invited.

The aim is to list an item (or more or less!) each week and post it on this thread. Once you have posted your picture link then please promote the person above you and any others you wish to, using Twitter, Stumbleupon, Pinterest, facebook etc. For each listing you make you promote at least one other.

Please say how you have promoted the person above with your listing post- thank you

Most importantly we will support each other through positive comments and general chat- pop by when you can.

A new thread will be started for each week on a Sunday morning/afternoon.

Looking forward to sharing our listings!

Hi all,

Pinterest hasn’t let me pin anything for a while…don’t know why??? :worried: so I’ll just be posting this week on FB

I have some Teacher Bookmarks today…not the best picture…need the weather to cheer up a bit!!

Have a great week everyone

Hiya Clare @KnitnPurl how are you doing? Loving the bookmarks, don’t know how you make such brill items !
Pinterest very slow for me too.

Hi Stevie and thanks for joining us. Lovely to have some new work and shops adding to the thread.feel free to post as often as you wish. We generally pin items, but facebooking, tweeting or whatever are equally welcome. We tend to ‘love’ each others items by clicking on the heart icon or on the ‘love this’ tab as this gives a chance of the item appearing on Folksy front page for a brief time.

Great you were able to sort out pinning Claire @KnitnPurl

Back in a while with a new listing


(Sue Mellem) #14

New earrings from me

(Claire Musgrove ) #15

Yes, pinning all sorted, thanks guys!!
Just need to get the laptop functioning properly so I can post quicker, here and on FaceBook…it is being frustratingly slow… :confounded:
I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve listed 4 owls today…Thought I’d get them all in while the laptop is sort of working…who knows when I’ll next manage it!!!

Great teacher gifts…don’t you think?

off to pin and post…hopefully :confused:

Caught up to here.

Love those little owls Claire @KnitnPurl And I agree they make great teachers’ gifts.

Thanks Stevie @stevieafloat. I’ve gone from a total novice photographer to managing to photograph jewellery - not sure that I can photograph anything else well!

(Hobbitgirlie1880) #20

Here is a new bookmark for this morning.

I find earrings so hard to photograph
Think that’s why I havent listed that many.
I get very frustrated. >:)
Any tips @BeadstormJewellery
Be back later.
Loved and pinned to here

Sending a Pin link to my daughter, she will love these mini baking note books, Suzzie x

I agree Dawn, earrings are difficult to photograph, some more so than others.

Try to have different ‘props’ to hang them from. I find different glasses are better for some earrings than others.

Some can be photographed laying flat, others just don’t work that way.

I find that using a tripod usually gets better results than trying to hold the camera steady.

Whatever you do, they aren’t easy and seem to have a mind of their own!
