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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Christmas / Winter

Good Morning All

I was asked a while ago,  by the lovely Sam Healy, if I would like to join her Ladybug Crafts Challenge team.   I said 'yes' straight away, so here goes. You can enter upto 3 times with any type of hand crafted art.

I used -
Silver mirri card
Homemade bead pin
Christmas tree die (from John Next Door) used on sticky back glitter paper
Circle Sentiment from Netty HERE
Swiss Dots Embossing folder

I took this card with me to the craft meeting on Thursday because a lady had come the week before and she wanted to make a couple of Christmas cards for her daughters.  This lady had never crafted before, and I have since found out that she has suffered a brain hemorrhage in the past, so her dexterity was a tad slow, but she made two cards featuring a tree like this which I had previously cut out.  She was so happy to have done this and was made up with the cards she had made.  She wants to make one for her Grandson next week so I,m cutting some decoupage out for her as a topper.

Congratulations on your new DT Wendy. Your card is beautiful, I also have this die and I cut out a triangular shape and put the tree on top of it, it looks really nice. I think that you can do so much with this lovely die.
I really liked your story about the lady who attended your class, this is what it is all about, showing people how to overcome difficulties, I should know and it does help a lot. You are such a wonderful person. Hugs, Jen xx

Hi Wendy
Gorgeous card. Love the tree. What a great story about your lady from the craft meeting. These things do not usually have good outcomes so its good to know someone has come out the other side and is doing well.
