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

Advent Calendar for Crafty Ribbons & Craft Club

Good Morning All

It is my turn to show a piece of work for Crafty Ribbons Design Team.
I was given this fabulous Advent Ribbon and I made a sweet calendar for Tess.
I left  it with Lorien to add sweets or treats for her.

There are various kits in different designs available HERE
I used a piece of white quilt cover and attached some wadding before  sewing the back on.
I added the ribbon and buttons so that it can be hung on a coat hanger but the kits come with tabs so it could be hung on a pole.

This pink Christmas Word ribbon is also available in the store too

Crafty Ribbons is on Facebook

Now it was nice to get back to Craft Club on Friday and see all my ladies.
These are the gifts I made for them this week, a choccy lolly on a stick and I made a holder for them inspired by Pootles.
The snowflakes are JND die cuts.

I hve decided to enter these int a challenge 

Do you remember the sketch challenge HERE, I know it seems ages ago now.
Here it is.
 This is my interpretation


Val J

Val C


Val J was the name drawn so she received a little gift.
This weeks challenge is CAS - Clean & Simple
I didn't have time to make a card so I used one my sister made.
minimal embellishments.
