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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Sunday Mojo No. 10

Good Morning All
I forgot to take a piccy of the goodies I gave John but I,m sure he one on his blog here, I say 'goodies', I dont think John thought so when I gave them to him!!!!!  There was 5 sheet of different colour paper, a handle from a paper carrier bag, tiny gems, negative from a diecut, some purple rafia, a piece of sacking (from a Rioja bottle), red wooden beads, sticky ribbon with butterflies on (John said YUK) and some crochet flowers.                            
 I,ve just pinched this pic from John

 I covered a box (Ferrero Rocher chocolate box) with torn pages of a book.
 I used loads of Marianne diecuts -------

Corner LR0200
Fancy Circles LR 0152
Flowers  LR 0106 and LR 0107

I cut a flower shape into a double sided sticky sheet and covered with the tiny gems then sprinkled with glitter to fill in the areas that did not have gems on.

I glued a sheet of punk card on the inside of the base and the lid.
I cut some more shapes for the inside and stuck the piece of sticky ribbon I had supplied in goodie pack.

I stuck some more gems in the flower centres.

This pic shows the carrier bag handle, I glued flowers all around it.

Ribbon glued to the sides of the lid and the base.

Can be used for storing all sorts of things, here I put lemon flavour green T bags in.

This is the second item I made.  I weaved strips of paper on the inside of the negative diecut.
These mojo challenges between John and I really do test my creativity, but I do give him stash that I,m not keen on, just to see what he comes up with, he is so creative.  Pop over to see what he has made.

  16. Hi Wendy! I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. Work has been crazy over the last couple of days, but I hope things will calm down a bit soon (hopefully with the start of the new week).
    Your box turned out beautifully. I love all the flowers. That box really is great for some small items (eg. doilies, brads ...).
    Oh, and I like the weaved strips of paper on your second project. So colorful! Fab work!
