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 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

Decorated Glasses

Good Morning All
I went to a craft class a couple of weeks ago with my Crafty Friend Val J.
It was for Decorating Glasses.
I thought it was Glittering but it was painting them, which, I thought, ended up abit wishy washy.
These are Vals, a turquoise colour.

Between the coats of paint drying, we made these little, cute
hanging decorations from corks.

I decided to add more to my glasses as I thought they were too pale.

When I got mine home I decided to have another go at them.

This one, I mixed Mod Podge with glitter and painted on,
Could do with another coat I think.

And this one, I used Collal varnish glue and add glitter onto it.
I gave it 2 coats then another one of glue on top to seal.

Alot better than the paint I think.

I have a Grey Goose vodka bottle that I want to decorate in this way, but I need to mask off the images of the geese.

I received a Christmas card in the post this week but it was not written in, who is it from????
It is a handmade one, no verse or sentiment inside.
