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 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

Good Morning All

I got back home on Friday evening after a lovely visit to my Sons and Johns.
Whilst I was with John (JND) we talked about my die challenge I did for myself back in 2015. 
 I challenged myself to use a die set or  die from every single die set that I owned.
He has challenged me to do it again but with a difference.
As I am doing an online course for Journal Therapy, he challenged me to do a Journal page each day showing a die from a different set on each page.

Of course I had to agree, partly because it will make me catalogue my dies again and also, I am going to get rid of some that I will never use again.
So, I am going to make myself a Journal, and decorate each page with a die cut.
So now I am getting my thinking cap on, lots of ideas in my head,  so watch this space.
It will probably commence in January and if anyone wants to play along and showcase their dies by making cards or boxes or pages etc, we will give a prize, both John and I.

Meanwhile here are afew pics from my time the my gorgeous grandaughters.
Tess loves dressing up and has a great selection of outfits.

WE had a lovely winter walk in the woods.

I bought afew bits at the craft shop for them to paint.

Lovely pics of the girls. Your challenge sounds brilliant. I am sure it will take more than 1 Journal just to use the JND dies I have😀 without any others.

Kathleen said...

I keep meaning to challenge myself with my dies as I have so many and not all of them have been used. I'll look out for your post.
Fab photos.
