All for a Good Cause

I love doing craft fairs that help to raise money for charity and try where ever I can to help out. Over the past year I have donated several items for auctions and attended 3 craft fairs where all the proceeds have gone to a good cause.


On Saturday I will be at Pedal Power in Pontcanna Gardens where all the proceeds go towards providing support and equipment for children and adults with special needs to cycle around the glorious park in the centre of Cardiff. If you have a mo visit their facebook page and see the good work they do :)

Of course I’m not the only person to support charity a whole bunch of folksters got together and took part in a ‘bead soup’ event, sending each other 10 beads to create an item that will be sold with proceeds going to Breast Cancer Awareness. So far we have raised £74 and still going.


Here are just some of the items folks made, click on the pictures below to take you to the talented and generous Folksters shop......

Folksy Friday - Yum!

I love food, I love to eat, I love to grow my own and I love to cook, sadly this does nothing for my waistline! I’m already looking forward to tonight’s meal, I just harvested our little crop of tomatoes 28 in all, (they are now in the airing cupboard to ripen), I also unearthed around 20 potatoes and 12 runner beans for our tea. So tonight’s dinner will be pie, mash and green beans! drool!!! yum!!!.


So with all this food around today’s Folksy Friday picks are all about food, but not the kind that goes from your lips straight to hips. Indulge your love of food with these non fattening foody items from the September Embers daily listing club.
