About Me

My photo
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

Ready For Home

Good Morning All
My sister arrives home today after visiting her daughter in Canada, and we leave for home on Friday, I am getting  ready for home, this is the longest I have been away, nearly 4 weeks.  Missing my craft room and the weather of course.

The flower is using the technique on the page at the top of my blog, all the rest is scraps that were on my desk.  I think the leaf is a Memory Lane die but this  was brought to the craft meeting by one of the ladies. It is great that we swap and lend each other dies and papers etc.  
There was a lovely letter from Carol, the lady I met after she read my letter of the month last month.  We hope to meet again soon when I get back and before she has an operation.

This is the little gorgeousness that I am missing, she is so cute, talking and being cheeky, loving, sweet, lovely, a little madam.


And this is my other little gorgeousness, Noah.  6 Months old now and so sweet, always smiling (well nearly always, LOL)

Eyes to die for, so gorgeous.  Lots of slobber 'cos he is teething, already got 2 on the bottom and the top ones nearly popping through.

I will miss them sooooooo much when I go home on Friday, missing Hollie already.

This is Noah's Christening Cake, part chocolate and part vanilla and very delicious.

  9. hi Wendy, I feel for you having to leave those beautiful grandchildren.
    your card is beautiful, love the flower and spray, remind`s me of a cherry lynn one, must be very similar to the one you say it is.

  10. Good morning Wendy, I am getting a connection at last.
    The pictures of your Grandchildren are absolutely stunning the are so beautiful.
    Love your card, the floral spray is brilliant
    Hugs from a rather miserable Dalyan, Turkey
    Hope your weather back home is better than this.
