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

Decorated Notebook

Good Morning All

I saw a post on Facebook, it was one of those sites that do demo videos and this one was called Mett Dan I think.
Anyway, it was weaving ribbon to cover a book, easy I thought.
Well, it was easy in my head but then when I started doing it, not quite so easy.
I  never considered the width of the ribbon  to fit the  size of the book cover.
Then I had to fit between the spiral binding.

I eventually got it to work out and stuck a piece of card on the inside to cover all the ends.
It is all done with a hot glue gun.
You can just about see it if you look closely but there was a little pull in the ribbon right in the centre, so I stuck a flower on.

This maybe a little idea to make my ladies at Craft Club only on a smaller scale.

I wn the Crafty Ribbons challenge on Facebook with this too, so worth the work and fiddling about.

Hi Wendy
Wow, looks amazing.
Having done a Christmas card for Mr D a couple of years ago in a similar vane, I can well understand how much work went into this.
Well done on your win. Well deserved.
