I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have five Grand children, four girls and a boy. As I love these kids so much I can't help showing an odd picture of them now and again. I really need to get into Scrapbooking too, loads of pics to use. I do some knitting and crocheting too. I also have a page on Facebook - Wendy's Crafty Crafts where I have a fun challenge most weeks.
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
Did you all survive the clocks falling back????
I didn't, I was wide awake at 3.30 and up making cards at 4.30.
But this is not too unusual for me but my tinnitus is very bad at present and causing terrible headaches too.
When I lived in UK and had to go to work, I hated going out in the dark and coming home in the dark, I dont think I ever opened the blinds in the kitchen!!!
When I was staying with John Next Door he gave me this gorgeous die from a magazine, I think it was Diecutting Essentials but not sure.
It makes a quick but very effective card.
I have made a load of these in different colours to make some card packs to sell at the fayre in November.
I think this one was made with Crafters Companion card.
You can actually piece the sleigh and reindeer back in if they are cut from a different colour card, and the Merry Christmas too, which I will be doing with some of the others I have made.
I had an up and down weekend.
Shed afew tears on Saturday as it was the anniversary of Lucas's death, 7 years.
On the up side, we had a couple of nights out with friends and met a couple from London who have a holiday home in the village.
Trying to persuade them to come out for New Year and join us all in Sella.
I,m still on a mission to find a tasty dessert to make and take with us.
I have found two recipes for calorie laden treats, one using chocolate and roasted nuts and another from Mrs Duck using Crunchie bars, both have a zillion calories but sound so yummy, of course.
I need a couple more Design Team members for Moving Along With The Times.
If you might be interested please leave a comment or email me.
Very easy team to be on, only need to comment 2 weeks out of 4 and create once per month.
