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

Sketch Gift

Good Morning All

This is an example of the little gift I give to the randomly drawn name of Sketch entrants.

I make a little box or a bag and add a couple of yards of ribbon, some charms and pearls or gems.
This is one box I altered.

I bought afew of these packs of 3 eggs to give as gifts at Craft Club.

I thought the boxes were to good to bin, so decorated them.

I covered it with pretty paper then decorated the top with tiny flowers, leaves and a small picture.

Then I fill with afew goodies.

Just a bit of fun and the ladies seem to enjoy it.
