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

Feeling Satisfied!!

 Good Morning All
I have been determined last weekend to clear some of my scraps, I got fed up of looking at it as it is a box I keep on the side of my desk.

It now has no scraps in, only what is meant to be in there.

I made quite afew collage sheets and then made them into tags for journals.

I had a couple of kids reading books, quite large papers.
So I collaged all my coloured pieces onto one side of a page and on the other side I used all the plain, pale papers.

Then I cut them into tags

I sewed around some and added a grommet.
They can be decorated more when I know which Journal they will go in.

I also made about 12  cards ready to add toppers too, using the bigger pieces of  scraps and adding ribbon to hide the joins.

Two cards made as I am trying to clear my old digi images too.

Such a great feeling seeing the scrap box cleared.
Now I say I am determined not to let it get like that again!!!!
But we will see!!!!

I have made a You Tube Video showing some of my process
