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 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

Christmas Collection

Good Morning All
I have made a start on Christmas cards.  I am trying to get all my own made then get going with ones for charities and I,m not sure it there will be a Fayre at the local bar this November.

I,m quite pleased with how these have turned out and have made a set in lilac too which I will show in afew days.

I did all the die cutting first using a variation of shapes, then sat down and put together, I had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
  Do you feel that sometimes things go right and other times it just doesn't come together

I did have to borrow the bauble die from my friend Val, Thanks Val.

All very similar but different and if I didn't put the bead pin on they would go flat for posting.

  1. Brilliant collection Wendy, love them all.
    It's amazing how they add up when you do them in little batches.
    I have most of mine done. I make little packets of 4 & 6 for charity sales, those have yet to be done.
    Have a great day
