A Full Blue Moon - and a Lovely Lilac Outlook

I know I had set out my weekly plan - and today should be the 'Four Seasons of Friday'  but as I don't believe in 'shoulds' and today is a Full Blue Moon the Four Seasons will have to wait till next week.

First off I've been over to Jamie Ridler Studios and checked out the gorgeous dreamboards of fellow bloggers and had my inspiration further fired up.  Given all the magic of this being the second full moon of the month Jamie asked "What extra-super-special dream do you want to invite in?"  I'm ready for The MacsX to take off - for it to bring some financial reward.  But my dream is not so much for money but for the lifestyle that I so want to be living.  Getting lost between the moon and New York City would just put the icing on the cake.  Anyone who has seen my previous board will know that I like to keep it simple - so I couldn't resist the 'Olympic Moon' posted on Bored Panda earlier in the month.  The buzz that the Olympics and Paralympics have brought about with the magic of so many dreams coming true - and so many dreams being ignited for the future just sums up the true magic that exists in this world.  That anything is possible feeling (if you put in the effort) definitely rings true.

I have already started putting the work in - and will be doing so much more of it over the next week at least with all the Lilac Lovelies and other Creatives at the September Craftfest.

There is so much to see - and so many gift challenges to be solved.  It's just after pay day so why not get all your Christmas Shopping done in one place - a myriad of unique handmade gifts,

At The Ruby Range stall you'll find this gorgeous doll 'Charlie' and more like her.  Andria makes commissioned unique rag dolls - this really makes for a special gift.

I love that Andria has worked with a school for deaf children and had hearing aids designed for the dolls - a real doll with a difference.

And let's face it they are just so cute.

At Brimble Originals there are handcrafted original pieces like this original and unique Felt Flower Wreath.

 Amy offers personalisation an all her gifts.

There are also some other gorgeous felt pieces and gift boxes and envelopes all sold via her beautiful wowthankyou shop.

 And at Bibs 'n' Pieces there are some gorgeous gifts for baby and mum.

Emma's handcrafted pieces like this keepsafe cushion are truly unique and made using those little pieces of baby clothing you really don't want to let go - a gift to be kept for a lifetime.

Emma sells through her shop at Folksy.

There is so much more to see and it all starts today - September 1st - that's this Saturday.  So get yourself over to Craftfest and get clicking and all your gift solutions in one space.

Happy shopping

Catherine at The MacsX
