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

Merry Christmas

Hi all

Christmas eve and the sun is shining here in Spain.  Looking forward to our walk on the beach tomorrow with our neighbours and their three little doggies.  Then we are going to find somewhere for a `menu del dia`  = menu of the day.  It has been great not to think about food -  turkey or sprouts or carrots etc.  So relaxing.

I have wrapped all Johns pressies and cant wait to give them to him tomorrow morning.
The cava is chilling in the fridge for our Bucks Fizz.
I miss my two sons so much but even if I was there, they would be doing their own thing anyway.  In the past I have spent so many Christmas` alone.  I think deeply about my grandson Lucas at this time of year and wish things were different.  But he is at peace now and I am sure he is happy with all the other little kiddies.

Well on to happier things - I wish you all a very happy time and a good new year.
Thanks for looking in today when you are all so busy.

Best Wishes

Challenge winner

Hi all
Just a quick post to let you know I won the challenge on Docrafts for `Not a Christmas Card`.  The picture isw below of the pink/white butterfly card.

Also, very dissappointed with the craft fayres - today only sold 1 card and 1 bracelet.  Thursdays was abit better but now got loads of stuff left and will have to dispose of.  So female relatives will be getting extra bits in the post after Christmas and the charities will benefit a great deal, which they would in the long run anyway but it would have been nice to sell loads then I could buy more stuff to make more cards to give to them anyway (thats a roundabout way of doing it but I get the enjoyment of making ) if you know what I mean.

Going now to join in the weekend Blog Hop.

Good News

Hi all
I just thought I would share some good news with you all.  A lady I met last week at a Christmas lunch, owns a cafe here, and she has asked if she can display some of my jewellery and try to sell some for me.  I shall take some down to her this week just in time for a cheapy Christmas pressy for someone.

Wine glass charms

Good morning all.

I am still making bits to sell on the Christmas stall in 1 weeks time in the village where we live.  I thought I would show you these Wine glass charms.  They just hook round the glass stem and then (usually) there is a different coloured bead on each one so that each person knows which glass is theirs, but some people do like them all the same colour.  These have got an unusual shaped black stone on. I do them in all sorts of coloured stones and beads.  I saw some at the ladies night I went to last Friday with my neighbour amd they were selling for 12 euros, 4 times the amount I charge.  I,m not bothered about making great profits, I just enjoy making them.  All money goes back into buying more stash and then the cards get donated to the charities I support here.  In the Uk I always supported a cancer charity, but here in Spain I donate to Animal Aid (there are so many abandoned animals here) and the other one is a Stoma support charity, so both good causes.

Please leave a comment  telling me what you think.

Commision cards

Hi all

I was approached today by a lady I know asking me to do two cards for her - one for her Grand-daughters 1st B,day just before Christmas, and another for her daughter, son-in-law and said grand daughter for Christmas.  I hope she likes them, I think they look lovely.  I didn,t think I would do them today but once I got started I had to finish, even though we have our neighbours coming round for dinner!!  LOL.  One is a nice pink box card with a lovely picture of a teddy holding a balloon behind the glass and the Christmas card is a double easel with a cutie snowman and teddy on each side. 

I have been blog hopping today aswell, naughty but nice!!!!

Thanks for looking

Challenge Entry on Docrafts

Hi all

I thought I would show you this card that I have entered into a challenge over at Docrafts.
I love Butterflies and I must admit I do use them alot, and if I have made a small mistake they are great for covering it up.

We had a lovely lunch out yesterday with our neighbours - 3 courses and a salad and a drink for 6.50 euros.  Very hard to beat that.  I am going to a ladies evening tonight aswell.  Busy time leading upto Christmas - our first Christmas lunch on Sunday with all the people from one of the charities I give my cards to.

Have a good day
Wendy L
