UKHandmade Jewellery competition - my entry


I'm feeling lucky and so I'm entering the 'UKHandmade Jewellery competition'.
Here is my entry:

I recently purchased a gorgeous handmade rag doll from a lovely lady called Jo from Milly and Me.
Not only was the doll beautifully handmade by Jo but she was also made to look like my 3 year old daughter.
Jo was so accommodating and created her exactly as I wanted, with blue eyes, dimples, blond hair and holding my daughter's favourite teddy bear.

My daughter and myself absolutely love her, she is so well made with lots of details and every time I look at her, I think of my daughter. She is so precious mainly because she is not just any old doll but she is 'my Raggedy Jennie'. She will have great sentimental value to both of us, especially as my daughter grows up.

I think handmade items are so much more precious for several reasons. They are made with love, care and attention by somebody who loves what they are doing. They are of a great quality and will probably last longer than most mass produced items. But what I like most of all about handmade items is that they can be made so precious by personalising them, like in the case of my Raggedy Jennie.

So make sure that you buy UK handmade too!!!

Folksy sellers: double check your bill!

Do you sell on Folky? Check your Folksy bill, you may have been overcharged...
I normally pay my Folksy bill without even checking it but this months I had a proper look at it and spotted some duplicated listing charges.
The item description, date, time and amount were exactly the same which didn't seem right. So I contacted Folksy who said they will remove the duplicated fees. They did that a couple of days later and sent me this explanation:

This is a bug which seems to occur when a seller increases the quantity of a listing while the item is in draft, or while listing-similar (we do not see this bug when ‘renewing’ a listing). Tech support are working to fix this. In the meantime, we apologise for the inconvenience but would advise that you complete the listing without altering quantities and then increase quantities afterwards.
So just double check your Folksy bill to make sure you not paying more than you are supposed to...
