I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have six Grand children, five girls and a boy. As I love these kids so much I can't help showing an odd picture of them now and again. I really need to get into Scrapbooking too, loads of pics to use. I do some knitting and crocheting too. I also have a page on Facebook - Wendy's Crafty Crafts where I have a fun challenge most weeks.
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
Back to my Craft Group today which I think we are all looking forward to, but I have shopping to do first for the charity as one of my Craft ladies is giving me a chunk of money to spend on food and nappies, so I will go to supermarket on my way to Craft then I can drop at the collecting point next door to shop.
I have made a Desk Calendar to give as a little gift at Christmas.
I found them on the internet, cut out and glued the top with PVA glue afew times. I added large buttons as embellishments.
I think I shall make afew more as they are quite easy.
I was making cards for my challenges the other day and I found a sheet of LOTV toppers that were suitable for kids and teenagers.
So here are two cards featuring the cats.
I'm still using gems left over from Crystal art pictures and the backing papers from Clarity
I hope you survived the heat last weekend, we had it too here in Spain. When I took Rico out on Saturday night it was like to different worlds. Black sky one way and
Sunshine the other
We also had a couple of really bad wind storms too, whipping the chairs around outside, very frightening.
I have a new You Tube video out today with 2 Christmas Journals for sale. I used a kit called Rustic Christmas and all the links are on the video.
If I sell a journal I ask a minimum of 20 euro but dont keep any of the money.
It costs 15.35 for certified post (I pack the parcel full of goodies to the weight limit of 500 gm) and 4.65 goes in my charity pot.
Half to the dog rescue where we got Rico from and half to Helping Hands where the two ladies help the under privileged
(ie. no income) and alot of these are Ukrainians who have had to flea their country. They buy food for them and help out with all sorts of other stuff too. This is where I send all the things I crochet for them in the winter.
So if you did buy one you are helping good causes.
