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 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

Christmas Window

Good Morning All
Firstly I would like to welcome my new followers, I hope you enjoy what you see and I love to read what you have to say too.

As most of you know, I have been feeling down in the dumps abit lately, so, talking to John Next Door on Sunday, he suggested that sprucing my craft room up my help.  Well when I decide to do something, I want to do it NOW, or even yesterday.  So off I went on Monday to look for new shelving or cupboards, shop was shut for siesta so I went back last night and ordered what I NEEDED and it is being delivered this morning, I hope.  Two tall shelving units, so this means I need to do a total re-organisation, which I love.  I have been up since 7am and emptied room out, swept and mopped, so now waiting for the call to say they are on their way.  And the best bit is I am going to our local craft shop with Val (Spain) she doesn,t have a blog but we met through my blog and she only lives 10 minutes down the road.  So going to spend abit more money!!!!!

Two Christmas cards I made last week using a window idea.

        I just cut thin strips of the same card and stuck on the inside in a lattice pattern.  Kept the rest fairly simple.

 Used a Spellbinders square de lis  die for the window.

The sentiments are freebie from Netty HERE, she has lots of these on her blog that cover nearly every occasion.

A gorgeous Forever Friends picture for the inside stuck on embossed card.

This is done the same way using a Docrafts decoupage, Daisy and Dandelion.

All my Christmas stuff is from at least, 1 year ago, most, 2 or 3 years ago.

Have a fun day, I know I will.

Hi Wendy
Gorgeous cards. Love how you have done the apertures.
Hope you're feeling better now. My room could do with a re-jig too. No room for more units sadly.
Hope it all went well and you had a lovely time with Val.
