June Loons Day 1.

June Loons!

Listing an item a day in June,
Is a challenge only fit for a loon!
To paint and sew, knit and bead,
And create new items that we need,
In order to list an item a day,
Are there any other loons who want to play!

Come along and join the creative asylum, apparently creativity is close to madness, so fits really well with our June Loons listing challenge.
Prior to that we were the Mad Mahemmers and the Folksy Fools, so we certainly have a very apt recurring theme!

Personal June Loon Mini Treasury!

For the start of the June Loons I listed an Aran knitted and crocheted handbag, fully lined and with clear oval lucite handles.

June Loons Treasury!

I hope to feature something from all the June Loons during the challenge, and today I have chosen items from brand new challengers, those that were not involved with the Mad Mayhemmers or the Folksy Foolers.

  4. WOW, I'm mentioned in despatches. I feel 10 feet tall! This is a great thread and I'm loving it already - and seeing some of the other stuff is a really good way to get pressie ideas.
    Well done Natalie.

    Could I ask one little favour?

    Can you change my name to The Little Bead Box?
    I didn't understand when I originally logged in at Folksy that this would be the name of my shop (DIMBO).
    I'm The Little Bead Box everywhere else having made that mistake only once.
    Thanks a million.
