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 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

Happy Birthday to me and a Giveaway

Good Morning All

It is my Birthday today (last week so this post is pinned if anyone else would like to comment to go in the draw) but not sure if we are doing anything, still abit wary of socialising in a bar or restaurant yet.

What I would like to do is have a giveaway of the Journal I made for JND challenge  in the New year.
I will do a draw from the comments left here and on my Facebook page next week.

Here are just afew of the pages inside.
I am really enjoying my journaling and I passed my Journal Therapy course with 100% pass Distinction, so a Happy Bunny.

Here are afew more Watercolour cards I made afew weeks ago.
This one is all JND stamps

We did go to friends last Friday for a curry, the same couple we had over to ours the week before for a BBQ on the roof.
They have a lovely dog called Pablo which they brought with them from England.
Here are a couple of pics of him.

He is about 4 years old.

The plants in the tubs, Helen bought at a garden centre last week for 3 euro each, purple and white in one tub and she repotted into her own tubs at home, what a bargain.

I think we may have to go and get some to brighten our area outside up.

We did invest in some new furniture last week as the cane sofa that John Lockwood gave me finally gave up and we had to bin it.
We did have  a good few years of use from it though.


I saw this quote on Facebook and thought it very apt and  a rule that everyone should adopt.

Winner announced tomorrow Wednesday 3rd June

A lovely post Wendy. Whatever you do today I hope it's enjoyable. Sorry no card, no way of posting and even with a willing helper the village PO is closed and post box taped up.
