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

Raising Funds

 Good Morning All

La Finca Castellana Rescue centre is the Animal Rescue place where we got Rico from.

They are desperately short of funds as it is not easy to do fund raisers in these times.

So I thought I would put a box in the craft shop, selling bits and bobs that I have made, to try and help them.  I took it to the last meeting we were able to have for the slimming club and the ladies there generously donated / bought over 35 euros worth of goodies.

These are what I have been making.

I did not put prices on anything just asked for a donation.

Firstly, the box itself

Macaroon grosgrain ribbon from Crafty Ribbons

Bookmarks laminated and a tassle added

Then some little handmade notebooks with the help of Gi Kerr's freebies on Facebook.

I made paper bags from book pages and decorated them and put the notebooks inside.

Then fastened the bags with decorated paperclips.

More notebooks

And more bags.

I dont think too much will sell in the shop as it is very quiet during these Covid times but anything is better than nothing.

Such a good idea Wendy, I am sure more will sell as the COVID situation improves.

All of my surplus cards go to Animal charity shops, but between lockdowns they had been told not to accept new goods which I can understand. Now of course they are all closed again and I have a mounting pile, three baskets full I think with probably 50/60 in each.
