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

Catrina Book Fold

Good Morning All
Wow, I had to do some cleaning up yesterday.  The wind and rain hit during Sunday night and I got up on Monday to  -----
The outside sofa had gone down the block as had 2 planters with cacti in, they had emptied their contents along the way, so soil and stones all over the place.
Rain had come in the front windows in my craft  room and the curtains are were wet and the side window in the utility room so all my washing powder is wet.
I knew I should not have had the windows cleaned!!!!!
Another Book Fold to show you today. 
I was asked to make this by a customer at the bar where I show my books.

I really enjoy making the flowers for all the books too.
The top ones are called Kusadama and the big gems I have are perfect for the centres, too big for cards but great for these.

Hi Wendy
Another stunning book. You decorate them so beautifully.
Would love to have an alphabet but its quite pricey. Have to do a new "Charity" as I've moved stores and left the original at the old shop lol!
Hope you've managed to salvage your cacti.
