About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Good Morning all
Hope you had a lovely weekend.  We managed to get out a little with Mothers but my Mum doesn,t walk very well so it,s difficult.  We are going to a lovely place after lunch called `Lo Pagan`.  It is on the coast and there is a walk way that cuts through the sea and on one side people go in for a mud bath , they plaster themselves in the mud (which stinks) at the sides of the water, then let it dry and then wash off and swim in the other side.  It is meant to be very theraputic.

Onto crafting- I made this over the weekend, I was just fiddling about and wanted to do something a little different.

It is just something for abit of a change.  I stuck butterflies and ladybirds (mariquita in Spanish, isn,t that a lovely word) inside the litlle concertina book inside.  Heat embossed a Forever Friends image on the black but you cant see it  very well on Pic.  I threaded ribbon through to keep it all fastened together.  Once again I used the Marianne flower dies on hand made paper with gems for centres.
