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

Home Today

Good Morning All

On my way home today after a wonderful visit with Mum and seeing all my family and lots of friends.

******
 A couple more large matchboxes today.
The paper is a 4x4 pad I bought at a craft show at Port Sunlight in April with my sister.
I have lots of laces that I amassed during swaps.





I used one of my Angel charms for the handle and surrounded it with paper flowers.


******







I always make the covers for the matchboxes from corrugated card and one of my ladies at my craft club gave me a pack, so I am using those.
Another piece from a 4x4 paper pad.
Bits that were on my desk - a decorated peg - a butterfly -  die cut swirl - cheesecloth.



I did stick paper in the inside but it is hidden by the tissue paper I added to wrap around any goodies that I will add before giving.
