I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have six Grand children, five 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
I went to work at the charity shop yesterday and managed for 3 hours then I had to come home, headache, sore throat and feeling really yuk. So I came home, had some homemade soup and went to bed, I thought I had slept for about half an hour when John came in with a cuppa for me, but when I looked at the clock it was 4.50 so I had been in bed for nearly 3 hours!!!!! I still have a really sore throat this morning, I thought I was getting over this the other day but I may have to go and get some antibiotics, see how it goes today.
I made this box book last night while he was watching footy.
Each side is 1/2" deep so the whole book is 1" thick.
I followed the tutorial on HERE on Fabulously Artsy blog ,and it was very easy.
I,m going to cut the card out to take to the craft class on Thursday, so long as I feel OK. It is just a 8 x 9" piece of sturdy card, 2 brads or buttons and embellishments as required.
No baby news yet but they go to hospital today, again, so watch this space!!!
