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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. 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

Good Evening All
I started as a volunteer today at a shop for an Animal Charity,I was not too sure before I got there, but they are desperate for helpers.  Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed it and my boss lady, Shirley wanted a piccy to put on the charity  Facebook page Here.

When I got home I had my veggy soup (Slimming recipe) and got to work in my craft room.

I used ---
A lovely LOTV topper
White card embossed using Swiss dots folder
Circle sentiment from Netty
Sissix Scalloped Square
Tartan ribbon local store
Ivy leaf flourish Cheery Lynn B 315
Crysanthemum Cheery Lynn B 311
Green card 

I have hardly bought any Christmas stuff as I have had a box full since moving here over 3 years ago, my 2 Cheery Lynn dies are newish and I just love them.
