About Me

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

Pixie Scraps

  • Good Morning All
I Hate when I cut into  sheet of card and there is not enough left for a mat on another card, only smaller pieces.
Well I made this pixie powders card  last week and used a large piece under some parchment work, i will show later in the week.  Anyway, I couldn't  throw out what was left so I cut into smaller pieces and matted them onto card and there was also a piece of floral paper left over, so did the same with that.
Looks OK I think and another one to go in the charity box.
The ones I gave the rescue centre are selling well.

If I have two pieces of card or paper, I stick onto a mat then add ribbon to hide the join.

Happy Crafting
Wendy L
