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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

New Beads

Good Morning All
I took possession of some gorgously stunning Chrystal beads yesterday and I couldn't wait to get started on them. I bought a selection of colours, red, green, turquoise, dark blue, clear and mirrored.

Here is a card I made with the red ones and below is a picture of red and green, great for Christmas cards.  I will show the other colours when I have made the pins.

This card uses the Sissix 'Iron Gate' die and the Winter Wishes is one I borrowed from one of the Thursday morning craft group girls.  All mounted onto embossed white card, quite simple really but I think it looks good.

All bead pins still on offer at top of blog.

Latest Noah Pics, lunch yesterday, he has obviously started feeding himself!!!!
