My Folksy banner

It's not very big I know but I thought I'd share with you the banner I am using for my Folksy shop, go and have a browse, I know it's a bit sparse at the moment but keep checking because I will be adding a few more...

I need to try and figure out how to get links into the side bar????

Yay... I managed it!!!!

I finally managed to set up my ickle shop on Folksy and this is my first attempt at a link, I hope it works, if not you will just have to put in a bit of work and go find it yourself. My shop is called Handcrafted by Picto... don't forget those capitals now. I need to figure out how I put this link into the side bar but hey that will be for another day, it's all a learning curve.

I only have 2 things on there at the moment and I've been advised, by someone in the know, nudge nudge wink wink, that it is best to add a new item every other day or so. It's also good to get involved with the forum etc.... with all this work when am I going to be able to do my bits and bobs? I'll just have to be crafty to be crafty.

 I got a nice order today, 3 plaques, a monkey and a rabbit but I'll chat about that in my next visit.
Nite nite for now x

Ist Post

Well now, this is my first ever post, so what do I say, It feels strange writing something that other people will read (hopefully).
I've never done a blog before and I am not very computer savvy so I envisage a lot of errors and mistakes along the way. 
The reason behind the blog.... I 'do' crafts and I want to get more involved with other crafty people, I want other's to see what I can do and I want to sell my crafts. I need to, I am an habitual crafter and I keep making things. 
I belong to a couple of forums, one for all things crafty and the other is a book forum. I already do the occasional craft fair, have a face book page and advertise my wares locally. I will add links when I figure out how to do it!!!!!
I also need to figure out 'tags', 'uploading photo's' and what to cook for dinner????? 
So cheerio for now, I'll get back to you soon
