I am ashamed to say that my last blog was back in 2011! Since then, I have had a baby - which has taken up most of my time and I am due to have child number four in August! I thought I had better get back on the wagon and create another, more regular blog post. I hope to start my birthstones posts again and features on specific gems throughout the year. This one is entitled All things Bright and Beautiful - there are so many gorgeous, bright and spring like creations featured on Folksy, that I wanted to share some of them with you. I will start off the proceedings with one of mine, a lovely Freshwater Pearl necklace in a super teal colour. The colour of the pearls reminds me of soft spring skys, just after the dawn. I have chosen some of the many gorgeous items featured in Folksy Shops by Folksy Artisans who have - in my opinion - a special flare and super creativity..... How about this stunning Jumper by Natalie Ofkants, featuring the most gorgeous designer yarn. Or this beautiful handbag by Ann Chandler? A medley of spring flowers on this elegant card by Helen Green I adore the little, bright birds on this tablet Sleeve by Jane Whalley How about this joyfully spring-like ACEO painting by Brenda Cumming? Or this super glasses case in a colourful floral fabric by Leanne Woods? I love these by cheerymishmash - just need a little girl to wear them - you never know! Heather Saunders has created this perfect spring time bracelet and Maria Palmer has created this stunning greetings card with beautiful sunny yellow flowers This beautiful butterfly brooch was created by Leanne de Lima Aroujo Gorgeous flowers in all spring time shades can be found in the bracelet by Adien Crafts How about this veritable meadow for the neckline by Didy Ward? This beautiful Shabby Chic Card by Armine Azizian features a lovely spring bird I love the colours used to create this fantastic Chakra bracelet by Jacqueline Ostrowka The colour of these stunning beaded earrings by Helen Murphy is just mouthwateringly zesty! I just adore this Fuschia Agate and sterling silver pendant by Faith Bowman - it is absolutely gorgeous! Valerie Farrell has created this lovely little ladybird purse! If you would like to take a closer look at these crafters shops and more of their work, please just click on the pctures and you should be taken directly to the items in their shops. I hope you will enjoy their work as much as I do!
