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

Got home OK after a wonderful 11 days away, loved every minute of it.

I had a wonderful time with John Next Door and at Ally Pally.
Here are just afew pics I took there.

The delightful Sue Wilson
from Particraft.
A great lady.

Wonderful Dawn from Dawns Inspirations
she is an inspiration, lovely lady.

Alex from Hochanda, so friendly.

Jackie Trinder introduced herself, a great blogger, lovely lady.

I dont think these two need any intro,
two great people,

Leoni, now a presenter on Hochanda

and the great Phill Martin,
a really fun guy.
He was doing a live show for Hochanda here.

This is the newest member to our family, Tess Fleur, with Hollie and  Daddy.

And finally here is a card I made yesterday when I was playing with some of my new goodies.
I didn't spend very much !!!!!!
