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

Hi to all
Here is my candy   CLOSED  Baby (Holly, we think) was born at 2.56pm  on 31st July and weighed in at 9lb 4oz.  Mum, Dad and babs doing well.
  Thanks you.  Winner of Candy ------Craft Nanny
 My grand daughter is due on 28th July, she may decide to arrive early or late, that's her choice.   I wont get to see her in the flesh until 20th August and that is when I will post goodies  if won in UK, if other country I will post from here in  Spain.  But I will do the draw, by random (names in hat), on the day of her birth.
My candy consists of---
Bag of assorted brads - stars, flowers, hearts, circles (over 60)
Bag of assorted wire shaped tags
18 -  6x6 sheets Kate Knight 'Totally Tropical' papers
12 -  6x6 sheets Pink Paislee ' Spring  Jubilee' papers
Bag of flowers shapes as shown in previous post
15 mts sequins in pink
'Remember When' Sticky Stitches assorted colours
2 embellishments stick on
1 x Paper Mania dome stickers
17 floral peeloffs
Bag assorted metal shapes - floral, square, circle etc
1 x Boofle stamp
1 x Tatty Ted stamp
1 x Daisy & Dandelion Coloured Stickers
Paper mania 3D stickers 'Love'
3 teddy pictures
1 book of Hot off the Press 'Girl Power' punch outs

More added as time goes by-----
Large bag of foam shapes - hearts, castles 'Love' 'True' etc etc
5 metres of assorted satin ribbons
More ribbon
Brads - heart shaped
MORE ADDED- Bracelet, Wine glass charms, phone/handbag charm, bookmark, desk notepad.
I am adding the bracelet in the picture to the candy.  I went to the 'Angel' shop with my friend Susie today and bought some bracelets to cut up and get the charms and beads off them to make into pins for my cards.  I bought 9 bracelets and these are the charms I got off 8 of them and below are the beads I got.

Aren,t they super.  On the post dated 12 July are some of the pins I have made and I will be adding some into the candy.
I hope you will join in and become a member of my blog, please leave a comment then I know whose names to put in the hat!!!! And if you wish to, put a link on your sidebar.  I just want to say a big thank you to all  my followers.
