I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have five Grand children, four girls and a boy. As I love these kids so much I can't help showing an odd picture of them now and again. I really need to get into Scrapbooking too, loads of pics to use. I do some knitting and crocheting too. I also have a page on Facebook - Wendy's Crafty Crafts where I have a fun challenge most weeks.
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
I have been trying to make afew really fancy bits for the stall at the end of the month.
I love making this style of box, especially with a lid.
This is the top.
Lots of pink flowers, leaves and a metal butterfly with tiny diamonds for the body.
A side view.
The white lace is a pack of 20 pieces I bought on a local market and that is the shape of them, sort of 'wing' shaped, perfect for this project.
Pink lace around the rim with afew pearls here and there.
And here is the inside.
Very pleased with how this turned out.
A reminder that I am looking for a couple more DT members for MAWTT Challenge.
All you have to do is create one item per month and comments for two weeks of each month.
