About Me

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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Sunday Mojo No. 8

Good Morning All
It was my turn to present John Next Door with the challenge goodies for this week and I was thinking 'Black & White'.
I thought I would try something different than a card so I recovered a glass jar from the recycling bag.  I recycle as much as possible and here in Spain there are bins for paper, glass and plastic / cartons / tins, and even used cooking oil, on nearly every road, so that is great.

 
 I used PVA glue and covered it with torn pieces from a novel used in a previous Sunday Mojo (used here).  Then I really just decided to cover it with all the bits, I used alot more flowers besides cutting one out from the paper - the big black one.  For the lid I cut a scalloped circle from the grey coloured paper, then cut into it so that it would curve down the lid sides and tied the black ribbon around it.  I used a hot glue gun to stick everything onto it for a more secure finish.  I inked the flowers on the lid with memento ink pad and added some pearls.

I think I will make more of these for gifts and fill them with bath salts or sweets.

CHALLENGES -----
Joanna Sheen - Recycle
That Craft Place - Altered Item
Crafty Ribbons # 44 - Anything with ribbon








This is my second item and back to a card again.


CHALLENGES -----
Pile it On # 17 - April showers bring May Flowers








This is the pack I gave John, oops I have just realised I did not use the buttons, but then again, we don't have to use everything and we can add to it.

Have a lovely Sunday, we will probably be out having a walk and then stopping for a bacon butty by the time this post goes out.  Mmmm yum yum.
