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

Anything Goes for Craft Rocket

Good Morning All
My first post today is for Craft Rocket Challenge and it is a nice easy (busy) one,
Anything Goes.

This is one of the first stick pin books I made, far from perfect but it works for me.
I still use this even though I made the bigger one I showed the other day, as this one is smaller and fits on my shelf behind my chair.

 As you know, I love making these pins and the danglers to embellish my items and boxes etc and this is perfect for keeping them all together.
 I made it using sheets of polystyrene, covered in bits from off cuts of curtains etc.
Some doilies, I have made, others have been cut from a tray cloth on an earlier post.

I have used alot of my larger beads to make decorations for altered items (too large for cards).
This is the back, all wrapped around with ribbon so that it can be tied together to close it.

Such a clever idea and so pretty I want to make one now but I don't know what I can put in one apart from ordinary boring dressmaking pins!

Lori Kobular said...

Love all your pretty stick pins and the booklet you created for them is so pretty with all the doilies!

Hi Wendy
A much prettier way of storing your pins than in a box or drawer...........in fact, you've given me an idea! Thank you for the inspiration!
