About Me

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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Mini Display Cabinet

Good Morning All
When I was in a charity shop the other week, I saw this box for 1 euro.
I couldn't resist it, I thought it was too sweet.
It's like a tiny display cabinet.

I took all the hinges and fasteners off first.
I painted it Pink with Creative Expression Chalk paint.

Then I used Decoupage Papers around the outside.
And put the hinges back on.

I added Cream Lace around the outside and I found this  sticker embellishment in my stash which I thought was very suitable with the 'best friend' on the front.

Added Lace and Lilac narrow ribbon on the front.

Butterflies and pearls on the front window.

I threaded Pearls and Beads and a  couple of charms onto ribbon.

This is the inside.

Thanks for visiting and commenting, I do enjoy reading them.
