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

Dies Challenge Day 9 & JND Heart Box

Good Morning All
John Next Door die today and it is his Heart box,
I initially bought this because you can make any shaped box with it as that is the way John designed it.
I cut it in Black and then a floral patterned piece for the top.
I must admit, it is a little bit fiddly but I am going to watch Johns Tutorial again and try making it a different shape too as I make lots of boxes for my Craft Club ladies.

The leafy swirl is one I got in a swap I think and then added some Spellbinder flowers, some twine and a sentiment tag.

Here is a link to Johns Craftalong on Hochanda when he demoed this die along with others.

Hi Wendy, your heart shaped box is gorgeous, beautifully decorated. Would it take chocolates? I've not watched John in ages, so I've missed a lot of what he is doing now, Kate x
