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

Junk Journal

Good morning all

My laptop is back from the hospital and all Ok touch wood.
Now this truly is a JUNK Journal, made from lots of stuff I no longer wanted  to keep or use for any other projects.  This is the front cover

And here are a few of the inside pages.
I made 3 signature, lots of tags and tuck spots from scraps of paper and card.

This lovely page below is using a bag I get at the vets when I buy Rico,s dog chews.
It has a pretty harvest scene on it, far too nice to bin.

I used pages from the book that I had pulled out to make the journal, to make tuck spots.  All the non patterned pages are coffee dyed and other pages are freebies from magazines.

My friend Val is taking this to her daughters shop to try and sell it, raise some funds for charity.

Xxx Xx

A lovely journal Wendy. I am sure it will be sold. For some unknown reason I didn’t get any of my usual blog posts today so had to find them on a google when I realised. Was out most of the day so didn’t know they hadn’t come.

Hi Wendy,
oh my word this is gorgeous and so lovely.
That paper bag in the middle was a must to use as it's fantastic.
Love every lush bit of this.
I'm sure this won't take long to sell.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
