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

Sunday Mojo started

ood Morning All
Sunday Mojo is back, we postponed it for a week because John Next Door gave me some goodies, or rather baddies.  I did not know what the heck to make with them, then it came to me at some ungodly hour in the night!!!!  For my new followers, John  ( who lives next door but one to me and used to live next door) we give each other some crafty goods each Sunday and challenge each other to make some beautiful creation with them.

These were the goods and I have to admit I did not use the glitter glue or the string.  Then I thought some type of plaque, then thought of Hollie (my Grand daughter) and a  name plaque to hang on her door.

I covered the book cover with maroon material cut off some curtains I have shortened.
Used a Crafters Companion cd to make the letters.
Covered with the piece of acetate.
Decorated with ribbon to hide the edges of acetate, white gems from local shop.
Butterfly peeloffs stuck on acetate and cut out, tiny butterflies from Mei flower.
Bows on sides are little clips for hair which Hollies Mum can use her when here hair grows abit more.

Hi Wendy. What a beautiful creation. You're so clever to think of doing this with those not so good items. Love the little bow clips.
Hopefully John will show us tomorrow what he's come up with.

Enjoy your Sunday.
Love Val x I've given Lynn my list for the card in Lidl tomorrow. You'll probably meet up there when it opens!
