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

Little Book

Good Morning All
When I am at home I keep a Diary for writing reminders and lists etc etc.
So when I go away I dont want to take it with me as it is A5 size and as I am limited on weight and space when travelling with a budget airline.
So I decided to make myself a little book to take with me when I travel and I have kept it now as it is a good size to keep in my handbag all the time.






This is the tutorial I used on You Tube



I folded little squares of paper to use for lists and these slotted in the slots in the pages.
I copied reminders onto these too, from my big diary.


Quite cute and useful too.

Diet starts today, weight has crept back on slowly but surely, so got to get it in check.
More walking too.

  13. Hi Wendy
    I still like pen and paper for diary/lists at home but do tend to use my phone for memos or dates when I'm out as I tend to only take a tiny handbag with me. Would be good for my shopping lists so thanks for the idea.
