Handmade Monday - Sharing the Love and Self Preservation

I've just spent this past weekend at a local craft fair at Paisley Museum and will be there for the rest of the week, as well as taking part in the Christmas Craftfest.  I love the camaraderie amongst the artistic handmakers as we each recommend the works of others and highlight the beauty of their work. Today the love is shared over at Handmade Harbour.  And tomorrow I'll be showcasing treasuries, highlighting the work of fellow Etsians.  Whilst I enjoy puting the treasuries together I find the discouragement of self promotion rather strange.  It's almost as if self promotion is a 'sin' of some kind.

How do you get a good balance between sharing the love and self promotion - as more and more of us realise the importance of self-love?

Wishcasting Wednesday - Crafting some Peace

I am joining in the festivities and selling my wares at the Art and Craft Fair in Paisley this week, from Friday through to next Sunday.  At the same time I'll be enjoying the madness that is Craftfest.  I learned so much about social networking and met some lovely folks on the last one.

Sadly, I won't be able to attend the first Glasgow Etsy Team fair but wish all my fellow Glasgow Etsians a fun, festive and fulfilling day.

You might wonder what this has to do with 'Wishcasting Wednesday' and if you've already been over to Jamie Ridler Studios you'll be even more intrigued.  Anyway I started writing this post before getting to todays' prompt.  And my Wednesday Wish was to wish success to the handmade community that's currently embarking on the fest of Christmas Fairs on the webisphere and out there in the real world.

And over at Jamie Ridler Studios the prompt today is:

What Peace Do I Wish For?  On what may seem like a completely selfish note I wish for peace of mind - complete peace and calm.  This isn't as selfish as it may it first seem because the knock on effect can only be for the greater good of everyone around me.
