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

Quilled cards

Good Morning All
I wanted to show you these two cards that Lorien received when she had Tess.
They were made by a friend of her Grannies and Lorien said it would be OK to show on here.

I thought they were really good, the way she has used the quilling paper to write 'It's a girl' and to make the shape of a Pram and a Stork
and a Teddy too.

Give me some ideas too.

Also I dont think I showed this when I made it.
Another box card I made for Lorien and Rick when Tess was born.

    Very clever person who did the quilling this is such a very fiddly way to make your embellishments, but oh so worthwhile in the end.
    Your pop up box is superb and very wonderful, and a great keepsake also.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
