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

Good Morning All

Here is Hollies Christmas card.

I think Hollie is going to be a little crafter too.
She made afew Christmas cards with me, and stupidly, I forgot to take any pics.
Anyway, lots of new craft goodies to play with so I will be in my craft room for the foreseeable future LOL !!!!!

What a wonderful visit I had with family and John Next Door.
I came home with lots of goodies too, probably too many but that's what crafters do, is it not!!!!

Everyone was full of cold so it was inevitable that I got a dose of it too.
I looked after Noah and Aurora for afew days.

They are two of the happiest children I know, so placid and smiley.

Then on Friday morning before I left we went to Hollies Nursery where she met Santa.

And this is cheeky little monkey on my knee.
She is so funny and such good fun to be with

Then on the Saturday before, I met up with John when he was demoing in the North West and travelled back down to Leicester with him.
We met up with Ang, Mrs Duck and had a good laugh and a good meal.
The next morning I was priviliged to enter Johns craft cave and help him with his demo preperation for his shows on Hochanda Monday and Tuesday.
We still have a good laugh and gossip, catching up on all the folks we both know over here.
I will meet up again with him in January on my next visit.

Sounds like you trip over here was a busy but fun one Wendy and great photos. John is one of the few on Hochanda that glues you to the screen, much of what they have is like watching paint dry but John is very inspiring.

Great card today as well.
