Remember When? - Folksy Friday

This weeks folksy friday is based around memories, thoughts and how we should never forget them. I incorporated many different items under this theme of Remember when? For instance; the physical memories (a trip to paris etc), how we remember them (Photo albums and our brains) & how we should never forget them. We all have memories and they all have importance in our lives, the people we love, the days we've had and the happiness they brought us.
Talking Beads - Seaside Memories Storm Crafts - Memories Mini Book / Photo Album / Scrapbook
Comedaygoday - Summer Memories Glasses Case Sam Gibson - Brain Hand Embroidered Stitched Illustration Wall Plaque
Snowdon - Don't Forget Elephant Notebook Whimsical Wren Jewellery - I remember Paris (Lilac)
I wanted this weeks folksy friday to have a deeper meaning; a friday to jog peoples memories, get people to remember times they had forgotten and furthermore to make the people of folksy smile; we all have memories that make us smile & I hope my folksy friday has made you remember some of yours!

Great News

Sweet Talk has been busy today, I've been working on some hand cream orders which I am over the moon about and I made my first lip balm sale today, so yes the sales fairy has visited me a blessed me with some of her magical goodness. This post is pretty much filled with happiness and excitement.
Been happily making some vanilla hand creams and some coconut hand creams today and floating about the folksy forums. Is it bad it's become my addiction? Honestly? I don't think so.
We are stocking up on ingredients for our hand creams and lip balms and currently too many ideas for other products.
This is how focused I am at the moment,
Bath Salts,
Perfume Oils,
Solid Perfume,
Body/Dusting Powder,
Sugar Rush Lip Exfoliator,
When sales increase I'm gowing to expand my product range overwise I'll be hip deep in products for the rest of my life.
Friday is approaching which means my second folksy friday! I have no idea what my theme should be. I think I'll focus upon a certain type of craft like ceramic or jewellry making, is that allowed?
Anyway I just wanted to keep everyone upto date with my goings ons, what are you doing for folksy friday?

Rule Britannia - My First Folksy Friday!

This is my first ever folksy friday, it seems like a fun thing to do so I thought I'd participate. My theme for my folksy friday will be "Rule Britannia seeing as its saint George's day and the elections are coming up I thought it would be an appropriate theme to go with. I hope you enjoy my folksy friday and the lovely items the folksy crafters make.

Bazaar - Old Penny Ring Kren Hilton Designs - Yellow & Pink Union Jack Cushion
Karen Hilton Designs - Queen Three Cushion FluffsStuffs - London Theme Charm Bracelet
SewRecycled! nickynackynoo - Traffic Jam Bunting

Hope you like my folksy friday. I'm not sure whether I've done it correctly but these items I think are gorgeous and symbolize Britannia in it's simplest sense.

New Products Nearly Ready

We've been working on our range of lip balms for a while now as they are nearly ready for all of our Sweet Talk goddesses. After countless searching for graphic designers we stumbled across an amazing designer who has worked so hard to get or image across. We now have gorgeous looking lip balms now along with 4 yummy flavors to begin with.
These flavors are:
- Strawberry fields: A sweet retro summery scent that's sure to spark some love into your tired beauty regime.
- Citrus kiss: A sour fresh scent that evokes images of tropical and exotic beauty. A flavor that will kiss your lips into better health.
- Pina colada: A soft and calm scent that teases your senses. This flavor will nurse your lips and get you ready to hit the beach with beautiful kissable lips.
- Blooming blueberry: Spring is here and blueberries are blooming. Had a stressful day in the city? This flavor will whisk you away to the country to give you and your lips the rest they need.
The best thing about our lip balms are that they contain no chemicals only 100% natural ingredients. We are currently trying to make our products vegan friendly as currently they contain beeswax (an animal derived ingredient) so expect a vegan friendly range soon. We are also trying to get our products containing fair trade ingredients also.
If you have any flavor ideas or would like to see a vegan range of products then leave a comment below and we'll work on a new range.
These lip balms retail at £2.50 and gift sets for certain flavors will be available soon.
Expect to see our lip balms soon. They're waiting for their Sweet Talk Goddesses to take them.
