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

Mythical - Magical for Allsorts

Good Morning All

Isn't it funny how dates stick in your mind, today was my ex Mother in laws Birthday.
She ended up with dementia and the last time I saw her, I was looking after her while my sister in law was out for the night.
She told me that the news reader on channel 4 was her lover and he was coming to meet her after he had finished reading the news!!
It was her funeral the day before my Fiance's way back on 2006, a very sad time for me and my boys.
On to happier things.
Allsorts Challenge this week is hosted by Ellie, theme being Mythical or Magical.

I went with Fairies, such a cute topper from LOTV.

This card I will give to one of my Granddaughter Hollie (her Birthday is 31st) and I  made a hair clip for her with curly ribbon similar to this one HERE

Brenda is giving a prize for this challenge - 

Have fun.
I am putting together some super sweet candy, watch this space.
You must be a follower though and you will get and extra chance if you follow my Craft page on Facebook.

As you Like It - Ribbon (got to add a bow)
