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

JJ Embellishments and PTC Swap

Good Morning All

Hope all is well in your part of the world.
I am back home and my John is back home after our separate trips to UK.

I didn,t buy much craft stuff for myself, just bits for raffle prizes at my Craft Club.

Here's afew bits I have been making.
The first one is a Parchment Trading Card (PTC)
The Groovi Worldwide group on Facebook have organised a monthly swap.
This is mine.

And this is the one I received from my swap partner.
They are the same size as ATC's

As you know I love making embellishments and I have made a load from book pages for my TN's and Junk Journals.
Large Paper clips and mini envelopes

decorated and a dangle added

Tuck pockets for journal tags

Envelopes for journal cards

And this is what they look like in the journal

Enjoy your day

Wendy L

Hi Wendy,
such wonderful swaps and to think all that awesome design on such a small area.
They both are so gorgeous.
Amazing items for your junk journals and fab use of old pages too.
So gald you are both home safely.
I am off to see my sister the week after next.
Haven't seen her for a year and a half so I think I will have a sore throat after all the catching up we will be doing.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
