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

Not A Card

Good Morning All
I have barely looked at my laptop this week as Hollie and her Mum and Dad as still here, so I am spending as much time as possible with them.
*************
Hobbycutz Challenge this week has been set by MOI and I want to see all your gorgeous creations which are NOT cards.  So - scrapbook page, box, fabric, knitting, crochet, sewing ....................

I decided to make a wall/door hanger.

It is hard to get a good photo because of the length. 




I cut scalloped squares and matted with Spellbinders Fleur do Lis  squares, red on one side and Centura pearl on the other.  I used Hobbycutz snowflakes and glittered them, then used bits and bobs that were in my Christmas box.


I shall put this on the patio doors between my craft room and living room at Christmas time.
*******










I also decorated another of the boxes, carrying on from these posts a good while ago HERE, HERE  HERE and HERE which my older followers will remember.






I covered in a lilac handmade paper, wrapped some 'Cat Ribbon' (won from Crafty Ribbons ) around as I am giving it to Hollie and she loves cats. Then added flowers, gems, button, crochet flowers and hearts.
I wrote the label by hand, hopefully, it looks OK.
Put a tiny envelope and card on top aswell with a little note form Nanna.


I put the image from A Day For Daisies inside the lid and added a couple of Marianne die cut butterflies.

In a future post you will see a Keepsake Box I have made for Noah too.


I hope you will join in the challenge this week.
