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 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Tiny Matchboxes

Good Morning All
When we have the Craft Club on Fridays, I always host a Raffle and give a little prize, just abit of fun really but the ladies seem to enjoy it.

I made these tiny matchboxes, they are about 2.5" but so cute.
I filled them with the butterflies I make too.

 I decorate with all scraps from my box really.

I hope the winner likes them anyway, I love making bits like these.
I swapped again on a FB group - it was for a Friensdship Umbrella which I had not heard of but after abit of research it was great fun.
I posted off  to my swap partner and I received hers yesterday.

Extra bits and bobs too.

Then this is the one I made for her.

This is a mini one I made for her too.

I included lots of extras like stick pins and fabric flowers.
She was very pleased with it.
I am going on another coach trip today with my two crafty Friends, the two Vals.
We are going to Mazaron, about an hour and a half south from us , we are hoping to get on a boat trip around the port.
I,ll let you know what it's like.
