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

Picture Frame and Tiny Book Embellishment

Good Morning All
I got another picture from John Next Door before he left, I think there are a couple more in the wardrobe in the spare bedroom!!!
They are just a plain wood effect and this is it now.

I painted with Pink Crackle Paint which didn,t crackle as much as I would have liked.

Then rubbed on Copper Gilding Wax.

I bought the round bead and the wooden word              from Jennings 644.

The beige tassles are cut from a throw I used to cover my headboard!!!

I wrapped string around two sides and crossed at one corner

Love the look on Noahs face on this picure. 

Added one of my tiny book embellishments.

Crochet flowers.

Bead Charms.

Very happy with this.
And it now hangs on my wall.
