Clumsy Girl Folksy Friday

And I managed to complete the challenge!
Not only have I managed to find 6 items from Folksy on the theme of clumsiness and accidents...

...but I have also got through the week without doing myself any further mischief!

I hope you like my choices, and forgive me the last picture
(which on first glance may not exactly be connected directly to accidents...)

I absolutely love this picture by Alissha Lissha - it was one of the first things I saw on Folksy and I keep coming back to it again and again. I think it is absolutely adorable and can just imagine that just out of shot, on those spindly legs, with their tumble down socks, slap bang in the middle of the left knee is a great big plaster!

The result of some great adventure and the scrapes that followed!

Here's hoping you have a fantastic week, full of adventures but very few accidents! Take care, it's a big dangerous world out there!

Clumsy girl...

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a Stylish Bloggers Award - a great honor, but also a great responsibilty. One part of the challenge was to nominate another 15 blogs that you thought deserved the award (you can see my choices here),and the other was to tell your blog readers 7 things about yourself.

To start with I found this quite difficult, but I was soon on a roll and had lots of things to say!

The first thing I added to my list was that I can sometimes be clumsy - a fact I have neatly demonstrated only this week when I cut the top of my finger off whilst working on a custom order for a Baby Journal.

Luckily I don't seem to have done any major damage - either to my finger or the Journal!

I thought a good way to make light of my little accidents, and to find out a bit more about me and the things I like, would be to try to pick 6 items for this weeks Folksy Friday that fit in with the theme of accidents! I have no idea what I'll be able to find - or indeed whether it will even be possible!

But I like a challenge, so I thought I'd post this to the blog today so you all know about it 
and I can't back out by Friday!

Wish me luck with my search and fingers crossed I don't have any more accidents before Friday!

Lots of Lauras!

Logging on to the Valentino's daily listing thread on the Folksy Forum last week, I might have been forgiven for thinking I had multiple personality disorder - for there was not one, not two, but three people posting comments, and all signing off as
'Laura x'

Luckily we were all also signed in using our shop names, so provided you stayed awake you could just about tell us apart!

But this got me thinking... (always dangerous!) If there are three of us just within the small group of the daily listings club, how many crafty 'Lauras' might there be on the whole of Folksy? Well, don't fret yourself with this conundrum - I have done a little bit of research! According to the Folksy search engine there are 17 pages of people that are listed with 'Laura' as part of their profile! That's approximately 170 individuals!

So... As you can never have too much of a good thing, I thought that I would share some of these other 'Lauras' and their work with you!

Well we may all be called Laura, and all have a passion for making, but it seems that is
where the similarity ends!
