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

Matchboxes and Embellishments

Good Morning All
I hope you caught John Next Doors shows on Hochanda yesterday.Amazing demos and some lovely stamps and masks, he had afew sell outs too.
Well done Mate, and well done to Mrs Duck, Ang for all the lovely samples she made for him.
Dont forget, you get another chance to enter Candy Draw HERE on my Facebook Page.
The swap I mentioned on my previous post is to make a card to accompany a handmade bag or box which must contains at least 6 handmade embellishments, of which 3 must have lace on.!!!!!
Wow, I thought of that one, !!!!!!
Well I have shown you some of the lace flowers I made to go in the bag.
These are some matchboxes I have made, two of which will go in the bag and the others I shall use to go in with raffle prizes at my craft club.

I added three concertina butterflies in this one, so pretty with my pearl gems.

The flowers on the top are made with Cheery Lynn Roses die.

This one has a Foamiran flowers I made at my craft club on top.
Filled this one with my tiny butterflies.

I love these metal corners I bought from Ebay.
Concertina flower I received in a swap!!

Filled this one with different embellishments from my stash.

I have not decided yet which one I am using for the swap.
There is a couple more to show you another day.
Thanks for visiting.
I found a You Tube video that would help
with making the box.
I used one that I had received Stick Pin blanks in and unfolded it.
