What a weekend!

You go away for 2 nights and it all happens whilst you're not looking! Firstly, on Friday one of my Christmas cards was featured in a special blog post by Uniquely Yours, all about the online Christmas craft fair at folksy. She selected her favourite items from the shops signed up for the fair, and my Silver City Christmas card made the cut :-) Click here to read the blog post.

The second exciting thing to happen over the weekend was that I got my first order from someone I don't personally know. Up until now, it has been friends and family who have put in their orders, either through the folksy shop or face-to-face. I've been doing lots of advertising recently to try and grow my potential customer base and am so excited that it has worked. It takes a lot of time to do advertising, when I'd really rather be making things, so I'm thankful that it's beginning to pay off.

Maybe I should go away more often...

Only 28 shopping days left before Christmas

If you want to shop at say it and receive your goodies before Christmas, you'll need to order before Sunday 18 December. Any orders after this date are likely to arrive in the new year as we are closed over Christmas.

Also, did you know that there are only 30 days left to write and post your Christmas cards to friends and family in the UK? If you've not bought your cards yet, we have a great offer this week - get 4 packs of Christmas cards for £12.

It's time to celebrate :-) Google analytics tells us that we've had over 100 separate visitors to the say it shop. Between them, those 100 people have visited the shop over 300 times, and looked at more than 2000 pages! 

So thank you very much to our 100 visitors. If you each told just one person about say it, we could reach 200 visitors...!

Countdown to Christmas

Christmas cards, decorations and gifts have been in the shops for ages, but only recently is it beginning to feel like Christmas is actually approaching. You just can't get excited about Christmas when it's October. It's not proper. But now it's less than 50 days away the countdown can begin...

And what better way to celebrate than with some super Christmassy special offers! To help you count down to Christmas we've got a different offer each week. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Each week's offer features the number of weeks left until Christmas. So at the end of the first week of offers, it's 5 weeks until Christmas.

The final week ends on Sunday 18 December, which is our last order date before Christmas. We'll then be on our hols and our friends at Royal Mail won't be able to get your order to you in time for Christmas.

Make sure you place your order in the right week to qualify for the offers shown. Each one is only valid for 7 days. Which offer will you choose?

New card design - liquorice allsorts

I was supposed to be getting on with Christmas cards yesterday. I have a large order in that needs making up by the end of the week and I'm less than half way through. But, I wondered, could I draw a liquorice allsort? And what would it look like on a card?

So I put down my scissors and started up photoshop on my computer. After a happy hour playing around with shapes and colours, I came up with three liquorice allsorts that looked yummy enough to eat. I've just added the new card to the shop this morning. Mmmmm :-)

Postcards now available

Thank you so much to everyone who voted for their favourite postcard designs. We're excited to let you know that they are now available to buy online. So head over to to get your favourites.

The postcards are being sold in packs of four. We've spent a long time trying to work out the right combinations of postcards in each pack. Do you want four the same, or two each of two designs. Then, which designs should we combine? In the end, the top four winning designs are available in packs of four of the one design, or combined with one other similar design. And to make sure that everyone can have just what they want, we've also added a 'pick and mix' pack, so you can choose any four of the designs and they will be made up into your own special pack just for you.

Which ones will you choose?

This week we've started joining in the fun on the folksy forums; talking to other sellers, contributing to threads, and getting the hang of how it all works. Thank you to everyone who has said hi, had a look at the say it shop or liked our facebook page. It's nice to be part of a community.

One of the things that these folksy folk seem to do is have a sale lasting one day. What a great idea. So, there are lots of lovely handmade things on folksy today that are in the sale. You have to get them today. Tomorrow they will be back up to full price and it will be too late to grab yourself a bargain.

Here's the list of goodies on sale today:

And our contribution is the gorgeous Doho bracelet made from turquoise bugle beads. For today only you can get it for £5. It will be back up to £7 tomorrow. Go on, treat yourself!
