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

Quick Christmas cards

Good Morning All
It is my Mums Birthday today, a proud 92 years old and still going strong.
Happy Birthday Mum.
Todays cards are some very quick ones I have made for the stall in November and charity.

I sit and fold the trees at night then make them into cards next day.
I think they look quite effective on embossed Mirri card which I get from a China store here for
1 euro for an A2 sheet!!!!

It is still quite warm here in Spain, the arkward time, do I need a blanket on the bed or not?
Still not got the jeans out yet though.
