The world has gone mad!! I was working on an idea for a kit and was explaining about the idea to my DH. Basically when I was a young child and still living in Scotland there was a children's rhyme "Wee Willie Winkie".
This is how the rhyme goes:
Wee Willie Winkie running through the town, Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown. Chapping at the windows and crying through the locks "are all the children in their beds it's past 8 o'clock".
I thought that this would make a good basis for a kit, with a little boy in a nightgown carrying a candlestick etc. I had all sorts of pictures and word art in my head.......all cute!! But then my DH said.."You can't call it that!!". Shock, horror!! That would be so un-PC.
I'm afraid that I am perhaps not as aware, so to speak as I should be and political correctness goes over my head most of the time. "Can you imagine the search engines picking that up" he kindly pointed out..."they'd assume it was something not very nice!!"
Just to wind him up I replied "What do you mean..not very nice?". OK, so he was not amused or fooled by my apparent stupidity.
But what is happening to the world..it's a nursery rhyme!!! But OK, I've taken onboard what he says and I won't do it. He did suggest that I called it Little William....but I never was one to compromise on something I saw as a principle...not even a small one like this!!! It's Wee Willie Winkie or nothing!! So I have shelved the idea...the world is not ready for it!So I'll just stamp my foot and have a tantrum instead!! Lol!
Apart from my rant, there's news of new things in my store and things to come, plus a commercial use freebie too! So read on!
Today's freebie is personal and commercial use. I had so many comment on the stamped borders that I decided to play around with stamped frames. I have made a few for the shop but I thought I would share some of the others with you.
