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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Altered Choccy Box

Good Morning All

John always buys me a box of Ferrero Rocher chocs for Christmas or Birthday so I have afew empty boxes in the cupboards upstairs, (well they are not going to be full are they???)

Here is one I have decorated.
Started by decoupaging with paper first.

Then went on to decorate with ribbon flowers and lace etc. etc. 

This will go in my Christmas box ready to load up with goodies.

Aha! This is what you do with empty Ferrero boxes... I'll admit to hoarding a few myself and still to re-cycle one! Very pretty result, I'll have to follow suit with my own transformation... Thanks for joining our Country View Challenges this month!
