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

Desk Tidy

Good Morning All

I have been working on this altered item for ages.

I used different sized tins and one plastic cup and the lid off a Quality Street tin.

 If you remember on one of the Sunday Mojos when John gave me a book see it here, I used some of the pages from the book to cover the tins.  Here is how it started out.

I lined the insides with various shades of card.

Then I painted with Acrylic paints and I put a pretty pink paper around the plastic  one.

And this is how it ended up.  I decorated with flowers and gems and ribbon and buttons and butterflies, now isn't that a surprise?
