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

My Desk & Scraps

Good Morning All

This was the state of my desk on Saturday.

My actual work space gets smaller and smaller and it is making me so frustrated.
I have all these bits and die cuts I am DETERMINED to use!!!!!
I know I go on about using scraps and off cuts but I really must clear this pile.
Whenever I buy a new die or embossing folder I test it out, obviously, so that's what alot of this is.
I must admit I do get a great deal of satisfaction from using bits and scraps.
I see some amazing creations from Bloggers and I think, 'Oh I must try that' but then I get onto something else.
I also have this set of mini drawers filled with die cuts that I have either cut or people have gifted to me.

Well I have made afew cards to try and reduce the pile.

Luckily I have outlets for most of my makes and I am still building stock up for the Christmas Fayre in November.
I,m sure we are all the same and my sister said to me once that she gets  as much satisfaction from buying craft stuff as making with it !!!

Dont forget, if you do Facebook please pop over and join my page, plus you will an extra chance if you comment on Candy there too.

hi wendy ... yes I know just what you mean ... I have a large old desk that used to be my lovely Dads when he was still around but no matter how big the desk is ... the work space is just a small part of the desk ... lol ... and actually I do have a little set of those drawers in my summer house (my craft overflow space lol) ... may have to go and dig them out ... hope you are having a great week ... happy crafting and love sandy xx

Brilliant cards Wendy. I end up crafting on my lap with an A3 size board. Must use some of my scraps.

Hi Wendy
You have displayed your bits beautifully.....if that doesn't sound rude lol!
I love a craft bargain myself. Within 10 minutes of starting something, my workspace shrinks to about 20cm x 20cm lol!
