So this is something I've been wanting to do for aaages and have finally got round to doing. On Twitter (for those of you who still have your Twitter-virginity...) theres a thing on a Friday called #FollowFriday (or #FF or variations on it) - basically you recommend awesome folks for everyone to follow. I've picked up lots of followers by some lovely people recommending me - and likewise I've found some really cool peeps to follow from others' recommendations. I haven't been taking part myself the past few weeks, so I'm going to make up for that now hopefully, by doing some #FollowFriday blog posts. My plan is to do this most weeks, and I've got some lovely folk for you to check out to start things off!
Firstly, Maria of The Scarlet Butterfly Company! She is a lovely girl who makes and sells some amazingly pink, flowery, girly things - like these earrings and compact mirrors:
Not only does she sell gorgeous, handmade girly items but also a great selection of accessories, cards and stationery by East of India and Juicy Lucy - and loads of other pretty things! There are links to all of her shops on her blog, go have a peek at the prettyness! Oh, and follow her on Twitter!
Another girl who makes some amazingly pretty things is Clare of Pretty Green! She makes the most wonderful upcycled knickers and bras - so gorgeous! I also won a giveaway on her blog recently and won this beautiful, handmade totebag!
You can see more of Clare's gorgeousness in her Etsy shop, follow her blog and follow her on Twitter!
Another lovely person you should check out is Andrea of CrowNology:
She has two blogs, 'Beauty and Old Things' and 'Echo of Me'. Both are inspirational blogs to follow, full of gorgeous photography and beautiful quotes. AND she'll soon have an Etsy shop! I can't wait to see it. Visit her blogs and follow Andrea on Twitter.
Are you like me? Love glittery, shiny things? You'll love Laura of Glue and Glitter then! She makes gorgeous resin jewellery and buttons - and jewellery tags! Here are the super cute tags she made for me and one of her awesome necklaces:
You can see more of Laura's gorgeous creations in her Folksy shop, follow her blog and of course follow her on Twitter.
And lastly for this week, Edwina Simone! Another maker of gorgeous, quirky jewellery and accessories. I especially love this cute wee ice cream necklace and fused glass earrings:
You can see more of her beautiful things on her site, follow her blog and you should definately follow her on Twitter!
Thats it for this week - if you're a crafty person I follow on Twitter and you're wondering why you're not here - never fear! I am going to try and remember to do this every week so maybe you'll be here soon!
