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

Johns Sunday Mojo

Good Morning All
It was Johns turn to provide the goodies for Sunday Mojo this week.



This was left on my window sill on Saturday morning.

Sticky backed fabric, felt, gingham, ribbon and pearls.








I had bought this box ages ago in the local Chino store, so I decided to cover this.  It is about 4" square and 2" deep.










I had to use some of the red DS sticky tape as the fabric was not sticky enough to hold.

I cut the green felt with a  Spellbinders border die.



I cut the felt and gingham with a poinsettia die and mixed the layers and  added a big glass pebble.



I used a glue gun to add all the embellishments as I think this is a stronger bond.  
(I want a battery powered glue gun but cannot find one here, mine is electric).


Why not hop over to Johns blog to see what he has made, the link is at the top of this post.

  4. Hi Wendy
    You've done a fab job with John's bits. Would be great for a festive gift but then again, I wouldn't want to give it away lol!
    Have been thinking about getting a glue gun. Are the battery ones better other than being cordless?
    Hope you've got better weather than us today.
