I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have five Grand children, four girls and a boy. As I love these kids so much I can't help showing an odd picture of them now and again. I really need to get into Scrapbooking too, loads of pics to use. I do some knitting and crocheting too. I also have a page on Facebook - Wendy's Crafty Crafts where I have a fun challenge most weeks.
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
I made this cute little box the other day when I was exploring you tube and now I cant find the link, sorry.
I have decorated it up today as I am going to give it to my sister when I go back to the UK on Sunday (next week). She found out afew months ago that she has leukemia and now she is on tablets for however many years it takes to get her platelets to the correct level in her blood. They are making her feel pretty yuk. But she does not give in to them and is still running round after my Mum and her own family, looking after her great grandson too. She has insured car for me while I am there, so I will take over the running Mum round and taking her to hospital as she has a hip replacement done while I,m there.
I will put some yummy chocs inside and some money that I owe her for insuring her car for me.
I added various buttons onto each side.
I love this button with 'jackpot' on it, could this be an omen for the lottery?
I added some homemade tags.
I tied the top together with some plaited string that I acquired off a belt from the charity shop.
The origami boxes I made a while ago HERE I am taking back with me and giving one each to my daughters in law (sort of) filled with chocs too.
I have done a trial pack today to make sure everything fits in my case. I have got pressies and cards to give out. I will be seeing Hollie too as they are travelling upto the North West and staying at my Mums for a couple of nights. We are all going out for a meal on Sunday night so that will be lovely having both my boys and both my grand children with me, first time I will set eyes on Noah, my new grandson, doing well by the way.
