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

Junk Journal No. 2

Good Morning All
Junk Journal number 2.
This is a great way of using all your bits of scrap papers which we all have I,m sure.
I know that sounds abit awful but it is true, we all have so much we never use and if I can put a smile of one of these kids faces then that is great.
I know I have to pay the postage costs but it was not too bad, just under 7 euros for this Journal to the UK.

I posted this last week to one of the children on Post Pals, obviously one of the older girls.
I hope she enjoys it.
Lots of pics coming up!!!!!

Front, not gone too overboard with this one.

Hand crochet doily and a charm.

 The spine with bead charms.

The back.

 Inside using all the scraps of paper to create pockets and tuck spots for tags and journalling.





I put a pocket at the back with lots of bits of card for her to write on and some stickers.

I hope she likes it and I sent some extra bits for her sister too as Post Pals encourage you to send to the siblings too, as  life must be difficult for them too, with so much of their parents time taken up with hospital visits etc.

  1. Another amazing project Wendy using your scraps. Mine all go to a young 12yr old who loves card making since seeing me make them at the nursing home when dad was there, so never wasted either.xx{aNNie}
