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

Christmas Tags

Good Morning All
Before I came to UK I was busy making afew Christmas tags to add to my gifts and, maybe sell afew.

I wanted a Vintage feel to them and saw some Gingerbread ones along with a recipe, in a miniature envelope.

One of the ladies at my craft meet had this cute Gingerbread man stamp, so I stamped afew and cut them out, then inked around edges.

I typed a recipe out and printed off onto a vintage looking paper.

Very pleased how these turned out.
Als a great way of using scraps up too, bits of ribbon, lace, gems, flowers etc.

I have since made a lot more but in a different style which I shall show another time.
