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

Mug for Stick Pins

Good Morning All
I decided to make another item to store my homemade stick pins in on my desk.
I had some polystyrene balls that John Next Door had left when he returned to UK.
So I used one of the larger ones and a coffee mug that someone had bought and left here.
There are two sizes of balls so I will have to think of something for the smaller ones.

I covered with decoupage papers from Creative Expressions.

This is it finished.

Added pink frilly lace, cream lace and a crochet doily over the top.

I glued some Cheery Lynn paper roses around the base and glues some pearls in the middles.
I made a base from cardboard circles.

These are some long stick pins I made a while ago.

So pretty.
