Since opening my Etsy shop a few months ago, I've been aware of Fanciful's stunning devices. Firstly, just winking at my magpie eyes on my activity feed. Then I found myself frequently popping back to her shop to check that I hadn't missed anything. I can be a bit slow to catch on, so it only recently occurred to me to check out her blog. If only I'd known!!! I keep saying this, but, it's like entering another world - a beautiful, compelling world, that's perfectly topped with some well constructed profanities! Heavenly!
I've been feeling quite restricted in the world of Etsy. Don't get me wrong, it's been the perfect antidote to several years spent working on an acute psychiatric ward, but, I'm often a rather warty, growly old bugger, and the niceness was starting to choke me a bit. So, imagine my squealing delight, when the first thing I read was -
"Why is everyone in craftblogetsyland so damn polite?! It means I must be being terribly rude in comparison, I just know it. It means I'm gonna hurt someone's feeling by being my spazy blunt self. But. but fuck that! Harumph!"
Hurrah!! Then it was 'Bob's World of Dildos', and earrings made from rheumatoid arthritis, and I knew that I was hooked!
What's more, it's opened me up to all the other myriad delights of blog world, and has given me the kick up the bum I needed to get my own boat afloat.
So before I disintegrate into a swooning pile of compliments and exclamation marks, I'll attempt to pick some of my favourite Fanci devices for you to gaze at.
Enchanting on the outside, and then so much more when you open it up to find all those treasure hidden inside.

So to finish off this gallery, I've included this man of daring-
a lesson to us all.
Well, I feel quite exhausted now! Will the genius never end? I do hope not.
Thank you Fanciful Marina, for all that you are xxx
