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

Paintbox Poppet Cycling

Good Morning All

Here is another of my Paintbox Poppets decoupage which I love, I do still love cutting out decoupage although these are die-cut ones, which is easier for me as my hands do ache abit now and again.  This image reminds me of when I was young, off school on the long summer holidays and Mum would pack  a picnic for me and my friends and we would go off for the day on our bike.  We would be out all day, in the woods or at the local laying fields, never any worries like today, about being safe etc.  We just had fun, fun, fun.


Used some homemade punched flowers inked on petals and mounted the whole lot on a piece of frayed material.

We went out for lunch yesterday to a Tennis club that was recommended by our Spanish teacher, 7.50 euros for menu del dia (menu of the day) including a glass of wine.  This was the setting from the dining room window overlooking the citrus groves.  A lovely breeze blowing in through the window/door and we needed it, it was over 30 degrees today.
These are the outside views -----
There were two outdoor pools and I think, an indoor one too.
