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

Bargain from Charity Shop

Good Morning All
I have been watching You Tube alot just lately and found this lovely lady, Jennings 644.
She has some amazing videos and these prompted me to go on the hunt in Charity shops.
If you pop over and watch some of her videos  you will understand why.

 I found this tray cloth for 50cents.
I cut off the edge pieces so that I could use the centre  for a couple of  projects, one of which I will show you in afew days !!!!!

Obviously, I had to cut some of the thread and I did not want to throw any of them away, so---

This is what I did with them.

I hot glued the tips and stuck gems, or flowers or ribbons on and made all these  lovely embellishments.

So,  in a cuple of days,  I shall show you my first project using some of these.

  1. Something very different Wendy, it's amazing what you can do if you put your mind to it. I found a ge at but in a charity shop for something I wanted to crate for a TL show, it was by chance but now I keep a look out to see what they have.

  11. Hi Wendy,
    these are gorgeous.
    Yes she does some lovely tutorials on some wonderful things.
    Did you ever see my boxes I made with some lovely corsages that were inspired by her videos.
    Oh I have just remembered I showed them before we became blog friends.
    Will pop one on my Oldie for Friday for you to see.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
