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

Hollies Christmas Card

Good Morning All

I wanted to show you this gorgeous card made and designed by Hollie
 (and maybe a little help from her Nursery School teachers)

Now this is definately one for my memory box.

Don't little things like this mean so much to us Nannas?

I still hve my boys cards that they made in Playschool too.

I bought her this hat, scarf and gloves set while I was there.
She needed it to keep her warm as
she walks to Nursery each morning, which I am glad about.
I do think too many kids get taken to school in cars and dont get enough exercise.

  5. Well done Hollie you've made a beautiful card :-)
    And I love your hat and scarf too x

  6. What a lovely keepsake for you Wendy. Holly looks very cozy. I do agree with you about children not walking enough. My sister used to child mind her two grandchildren and since she didn't drive there was no option but walk the nearly 2 miles to school/nursery. When the snow was on the ground we used to laugh because she used the sledge! Hugs Christine xx

  7. Hi Wendy,
    yes this is a lovely keepsake.
    A chip of her Nanna's block I think.
    A budding card maker I'm sure.
    You are so right about children walking to school or nursery as too many people rely on cars even when they have short distance to go.
    I know life is hectic for young Mums, but you can't beat a good walk in the fresh air.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
