About Me

My Photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my great 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 my new grand daughter born july 2012. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson born Nov 2013 to my elder Son. I love the bones of these kids. Thanks. xxxx

Happy New Year

Good Morning All
I wanted to show you this box I made for my DIL to put in her Christmas stocking





I love these cards I was given by Linda (Animal Aid)
they are sort of vintage images in sepia tones with just a tiny hint of colour as in the rose.

It is about  A5 size and tied together with ribbon to close it.











 Here is another one I made to put as a raffle prize for my Slimming Club.



I also made one for my other DIL to use as Noahs keepsake box.  ie putting his hospital band in, his first tooth, lock of hair etc.  I did not take a picture of it before I took it to the UK in December.
