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 3 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017 and Arianna born 2019. 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

Mojo Gone

Good Morning All
Some of you may know that I have not been too good and the consequence is that my crafting mojo has up and gone.
When I dont want to craft I know things are bad.
I,m  still not feeling too good but trying to force myself to do some stuff.
I am only posting this to let you know why I have not been visiting your blogs as much as I normally do, I,m not enjoying blogging as I usually do so please forgive me.

I have a couple of orders to complete  so I will have to shift myself soon.
Nothing crafty to show you but here is a couple of pics in the mean time.

Lorien took Hollie and Tess to the petting farm on Friday, Hollie looks so happy.

This is Noah, such a happy boy and so much fun.

Arsenal Fan

Good Morning All
This is the last of the three cards the lady wanted me to make.
Arsenal fan, 30 years old and his name on please.!!!
I decided to use Tagul to combine all the above.

She decided she prefered the heart inside and as I  had not attached it, that was easy enough to do.

The 'Dream About Tomorrow' die is  a new one I just bought from Joanna Sheen,  it's very delicate.

For A Man for Craft Rocket

Good Morning All
Craft Rocket Challenge this time it 'For A Man'
If you are like me, you probably dont do as many 'Man' cards as 'Lady' cards so I always quite like popping along to see the creations that you all make.
I made this card specifically for a neighbour.  Dave and his wife have 3 little dogs like the one in the picture.

I coloured the edge of the scalloped card with Gilding Polish.
The prose in the middle is Johns Daisy Daisy Background, heat embossed.
The little doggy frame in the corner, I think you are meant to add a pic but I just put Daves name.
I hope he likes it.

Stick Pin Book

Good Morning All
I love making these books, similar to the one I had on offer as Candy.
As my Sister makes cards I decided to make one for her and I posted it last week.
She has now received it so I can show it on here.

The tag does say Happy Birthday , which it isn't but it had Sister on it.

This is the inside with lots of stick pins and embellishments
she can  use on her cards.

She loves pink and leopard print so this suits her.

I shall be seeing her later as I think she is picking me up from the Airport.

Birthday Candy

Good Morning All
As it is my Birthday on 27th so I thought I would give some candy.

This is a mini stick pin book but also contains lots of embellishments and earrings.
More will be added before I post it to the winner.

I would love you to be a follower and to post a pic in your sidebar if you have a blog, but dont worry if you dont, the winner will be picked from the comments left.

              There are lots of stick pins.

Inside there are some earrings, bead embellishments, more stick pins and some ribbon bows with pearl buckles.

Some of the stick pins have charms attached.

This is the back of the book.
All the decorations could be taken off the book and used on your own projects.
There is lots of lace, doilies, ribbon and pearls which could all be pulled off if you so wish.

I shall draw a winner on Friday 3rd June, 1 week after my Birthday.
This will give me time to get address and post before I leave for my visit to UK on 7th.
If the winner does not come forward before 6th June I shall name another after I return to Spain on 15th.
Any Candy only people will not be included in the draw.
