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 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

New Stuff


Good Morning All
John Next Door and I went to our local craft shop last Friday and I have been playing with my new goodies, nothing too exciting but here's a couple.




 I bought a set of sentiment stamps  ( Hobby Art Clear stamps CS04D - Friends), an ink pad for embossing, a ruler with holes in to do edge piercing and a Cheery Lynn Stacker  flower ( SF 2 ) die - the green flower on this one.  I love it and will be making loads more me thinks.



You can just about see the pierced holes on the edge of the dark blue card on this one.


I do need to practice my stamping abit more though.

I just thought I would show you the finished frame from yesterday, it is now hanging in my room upstairs.
