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

On a Mission

Good Evening All
Abit late today but I have been busy.  I am on a mission to use loads and loads of stash that has not been used for ages and all scrappy bits that have been hanging around in the drawers and on my desk.  I am feeling sort of unsettled at present, I have far too much stuff that I want to get out of the way - scraps of ribbon, odd decoupage sheets etc etc etc.  I want to start on my Christmas cards but I want to tidy my craft room and have a change around so I am going to spend afew weeks using as much stuff as I can then I will get started on the tidy up, then Christmas cards.  I did do a load of Christmas decoupage while I was in the UK so I have started in a way.  One thing is for sure, the charities will benefit from my sort out.

I have lots of decoupage I want to use and this is one.

Humphrey wedding image on an easel card, Bitty Blossom flowers, gems, ribbons, scalloped squares and hexagons.

Hi Wendy, Humphrey looking good, lovely easel card. Adore the bitty flowers. I too really need to have a clear out but it is difficult to part with things, you may need it on another project. Good luck with the challenges.

What a really cute image Wendy. I love the layout that you have used and your colouring is wonderful. I have something to ask you, "how would you like to come and stay at my house for a while and clear out my stash too". lol I have been trying to clear out for ages and I am not getting anywhere fast. Hugs, Jen xx

Love the image and the lovely bitty blossoms die. I really must buy (or borrow) that die set.
Good luck with the tidy up, as you says the charities will do really well out of it.

That's a good idea Wendy all the bits and pieces mount up and can get a bit messy can't they, you have made a great card though and I love this I age.
