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

Pretty Box

Good Morning All
Jen, one of our ladies at Craft Club, showed us how to make this lovely box.

She showed us and I made this one but I could not for the life of me, remember how to make it. 
 I searched You Tube to no avail, so I had to ask Jen to show us again.

I have made afew and put them in the local bar to see if they sell.
This one used a 12 x 12 piece of paper and 4, 6x6 pieces for lid.
This makes a box about 4" but you can use smaller pieces for a smaller box.
Very pleased with it and have since made more and smaller ones too, to sell in the bar.
Our Craft Club today, love it, crafting and chatting.
