What do you think?

I have had this blog going for over two and a half years now and it has been more work than I had anticipated. Just trying to find the right item to showcase is hard. Is it handmade? Is it unique? Does it infringe on any trademarks or copy righted articles? Is it just another bead on a string?  I have begged and I have pleaded for submissions to no avail. I have spent money on Linky blogs which died a slow death.

So I have to ask, should I keep this going or shut it down? There's a survey over there ------->>>
I sure would appreciate a vote.

Oh and by the way if you do have something handmade for sale and you think it blog worthy, be sure to let me know.

Rag Doll

his little Rag Doll is handmade with a red spotty cotton body stuffed with hollow fibre safety toy filling and wears a pretty black and white check skirt which is elasticated for easy removal. She has little felt feet and her brown yarn hair is tied in bunches with ribbons and secured to the head.

She is 15 inches tall.

Each fabric Rag doll is made with a lot of love and care in a smoke and pet free environment and is also unique as no two dolls are the same.

Hopefully she will go to a good home where the love will continue.

These blue booties would make a fabulous gift for a new baby boy.

Driftwood Clock

I collected this small piece of driftwood on one on my local beaches in Cumbria, North West England, and turned it into a wall clock. It is rather thin and light.

I have lightly sanded it and then coated it with some beeswax to protect and preserve the wood. The clock hands are metal, the clock parts are quartz with a non ticking, sweeping movement. It works on 1 AA battery, and I will include one with the clock. The clock work has an integrated hook, so you can hang it on your chosen wall straight away.

It measures 33cm x 10.5cm (13'' x 4 1/4'').

This cute Mother's Day or Mom's Birthday gift angel is salt dough, hand painted with a midnight blue dress and tin star.

Tell Mom how special she is.

Her hand painted inscription reads, "Mothers are Angels on Earth".

Other dress colors and phrases are available, see variations.

Cello gift wrap, hang brand and 'care' tags included.

She's a unique Christmas tree ornament or just an anytime decoration for your country kitchen, a great anytime gift for a special Mom.

Hand brushed with a coat of polyurethane and finished with a black wire hanger, she's a cute little reminder for a special Mom.

Like all the ornaments I make, this one was hand cut by me, laid out on boards to air dry which creates the strongest finished product. Slowly air drying as opposed to baking takes about two weeks but the finished product is much stronger.
