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 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

Swap Goodies

Good Morning All

Do you remember me telling you I had joined a Swap Group on Facebook and I showed you a Fabric Stick Pin book I had made as an extra gift for my first swap HERE.
Well on Wednesday my parcel arrived from my partner and I was blown away.




This is the Snail Mail Flip Book/ Envelope Book
this is what the swap was about.
It had a pocket on the front with a Gorjuss tag tucked in.



Filled with papers, embellishments, journal cards

******



I adore these handmade fabric flowers.




A decorated peg.  I have never made one of these but it looks great and will have to try this.


















These gorgeous shaker tags, another great idea.






Beautiful paper bows fastened with a decorated peg too.





And some die cuts which will definitely get used on my cards.

She said she had looked on my blog to see what type of craft I enjoyed and she came up with these.!!!!!!

I remember showing a pic on Facebook or maybe John Lockwood did, saying that he had eaten the last Jelly Baby, maybe that's where she got the idea from.
Unless they are a substitute for White Emparado Semi Sweet Wine!!!!!!!!
They went down a treat!!!1
Thanks you Veonnifer.
