I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have five Grand children, four girls and a boy. As I love these kids so much I can't help showing an odd picture of them now and again. I really need to get into Scrapbooking too, loads of pics to use. I do some knitting and crocheting too. I also have a page on Facebook - Wendy's Crafty Crafts where I have a fun challenge most weeks.
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
Friday again and fat club day, I dont think I have done too well this week, but 'heyho' gotta carry on. I made a Cherry Bakewell from a recipe given to us by one of our leaders and it was made from chick peas, believe it or not, and it was flippin' gorgeous. If you would like the recipe let me know and I will email it to you. If you have ever followed the club that uses syns this whole cake is only 6 syns.
Just one week to go until my hols too, so excited.!!!!1
Another project of making boxes.
These measure about 4.5" x 6.5" and will hold about 6 A6 cards.
Now this one came about because I saw a belt at the charity shop, where I work on Tuesday mornings,and I thought it would look great on a card or box as the case may be.
The tassle was off a cushion cover and the wooden circle and the rope was from the belt.
Then I just decorated with whatever embellishments I wanted. Quilled flowers (inked on the edges), crochet flowers, corner die cuts, pearls, lace, brads.
I just had to show you all this piccy of Hollie when we Skyped last week.
Her Mum took this pic of her giving Nanna a kiss, (she kisses the computer screen). Aint this sweet? Love her to bits.
