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

Craft Class

Good Morning All
I had a great time yesterday with John Next Door at Olly Doodles craft class.  We went on Monday and she (Olly) had some gorgeous flowers in the display cabinet, when I asked her about them she said she had done a class last week, showing how they were made.  I asked when the next one was and, long story, but she did one yesterday afternoon and it was great.  Even though John and I have crafted for years, we both learnt alot and loved it.

This is Olly showing Sheila how to do her poinsettia.

This is moi putting Stickles on my Poinsettia.

This is John looking bored!!!!!!!  But he wasn't, he just hates having his picture taken.

These are all three flowers that I made, I love the poinsettia.  Olly used  Marianne die for this and a Tim Holtz for the white one.  I have a Leabilities Poinsettia die and will make more of these using that one.

This is  a peony made with pearlised pink card or quite thick paper.
