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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Sunday Mojo 15

Good Sunday Morning All
 Well John Next Door set me a challenge and a half this week.

The picture frame is about 15" X 9".

I really did not know what to do with this other than paint it and then embellish it with flowers etc.  Then, on Thursday night /Friday morning when I was lying in bed, unable to sleep, it hit me.

I kept the material I cut from the bottom of curtains when I had to shorten them when we decorated my craft room.

I decided to cut strips of the material (as in the post from yesterday, the Allsorts one) and fray the edges.  I stuck them on with silicone glue.  Then picked out some crochet flowers from my box and glued those on and voila.  I chose purple because this will be going in my reading room upstairs with a photo of Hollie and her Dad, I know just the one I want to use. ------

This background makes it stand out abit more.  And this is before I put the glass back in.

This is against a white background , shows the purple up more.

This is with the glass back in and now I will have to print the photos.  I have had my new printer for afew months now and still need to suss out how to print a 4 x 6 picture.!!!!!

The Hobby House - Anything Goes

Here are the two pics I would like to put in the frame.

I love this pic, it just screams at me 'Daddys Little Girl'.

In fact I may put two pics in the frame because it is quite oblong in shape.

I love the expression on her gorgeous little face in this one.

These were taken afew weeks ago when the weather was good in the UK and Mum and Dad put a blanket out on the back lawn.

Now for the bit of news I was telling you about -
John has been emailed about our Mojos on Sundays and we talked about it and he asked me how I felt about sending the goodies we used to anyone that may want to join in with us, of course, I agreed.  We will have to pull the goods together afew weeks in advance to give us time for posting and we will sink the cost of this between us, but we think it would be fun.  I did this on my Allsorts challenge afew months ago, Brenda sent us all the same goods and it was really interesting to see what we all came up with.  If you would like to join us, either email or comment on here or on Johns blog.

Hope you are all having a great weekend. and look forward to hearing from you.

Wow, how fabulous does that look! Who would have thought a plain frame could look so good.
Such lovely pics of Hollie too.
Crikey, you will have your hands full with the international mojo if you do it weekly and lots of people sign up. Dread to think how much it will cost you too. Maybe if everyone takes a turn or you do it monthly/bi monthly it will be less stress on you both.
