About Me

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

Sunday Mojo no. 9

Good Morning All
Well, this week  was a challenge from John Next Door, I looked and looked at the goodies he brought for me and wondered what or how I was going to decorate the box.

It is a beautiful box covered in material and tied with a ribbon.

The paper is really good quality but I did not want to cover all the box with it because the material on the lid is lovely pale blue and white striped, afew tiny marks on it but I thought I could cover it with embellishments.

This is the inside. The inside is removable but I think I will leave it in.

Now this is what I did.
I stuck some of the paper around the sides.
Stuck some lace across the lip where it closes.
Then just went to town adding flowers, diecuts, lace pearls on a base of blue corrugated card.

I cut some label tags ( X cut ) from some of the paper and put ribbon through and clipped with a peg, I thought these could be used as labels for whatever I may store in each compartment.   Then I  stuck a crochet flower with a pearl in the middle onto the back of each compartment.  I think this may be another Christmas Gift for someone!!!!
