I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have five Grand children, four 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 want to say a BIG thank you to everyone for my gorgeous Birthday Cards - Ang (Mrs Duck), Hazel (MAWTT), Brenda (Allsorts), Debs, Ginny, Val Spain, Lin Spain, Gill . I think this year is the best year for receiving cards, so thanks to one and all. I had a lovely day spent at Chester Zoo with my Son, DIL and Hollie (so special)
All unpacked and washed etc etc.
John Next Door has decided to move back to the UK and he is clearing out his craft room and I am benefiting from it. !!!!!
Lots of stash coming my way, but also thanks to a customer of his who gave him a load of stash, which he has given me some to make cards for my charities here, that I support.
I want to say a BIG Thanks to my eldest sister for staying at her house and we thoroughly enjoyed looking after her two dogs.
This is Max, he is the elderly one and suffers with arthritis. So mild mannered.
This is Buddy, a Beagle, just 4 years old but so lazy. He moves from his bed in the porch to his bed in the back room.
And for this bundle of craft goodies I want to thank Ang (Mrs Duck), this is the candy I won won her blog, so delicious, thank you, and for my gorgeous Birthday card.
I look forward to seeing my craft buddies at meeting on Thursday, lots of new stuff to bring along.
This is a blanket we (me and my sisters and niece) have made between us, for my Mum for her 90th Birthday in November. We knitted and crocheted squares and I crocheted them all together and edged it while I was in UK. I hope she likes it, it is to keep her warm through the winter while she sits in her chair and it is big enough to use as a throw for her bed too. My niece also contributed a bag to put it in that she had made too, which I forgot to photograph, sorry Tracy.
