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

Shabby Chic Photo Album

Good Morning All
This posted by mistake the other day but here it is again.

I bought this album from the charity shop and it looked fairly new.

And here is what it looks like now, after I got my glue gun out and my laces and doilies.!!!!
I padded it with wadding, then covered it with white cloth from a quilt cover
Then a lace tray cloth and a toning doily.

This is the spine with a dangle charm and a tassle.
I used seam binding as a book mark and to tie the dangle charm to.

This is the back

                   I found a Peacock brooch in my stash which I was gifted in a swap I think.

Inside the front and back covers I added a sheet of felt.
On the front one  I left a pocket from the tray cloth.

Very happy witth this and I hope it sells at the craft Fayre on Sunday
