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

A nice easy challenge this week at Craft

Gifts I gave out were these choc bars from Aldi, just like Blue Ribbon bars in UK.

Last weeks challenge was White on White and the ladies made afew cards each which is good.

JND Stamp

 Good Morning All

One of my Journal Class ladies sent a bag of goodies for me and inside there was one of Johns Magazines with the Stamp set,  Die

 and Emboss folder still with it unused!

So I had a play with the stamp set first.

I used the largest stamp on these two cards.

This is the centre spread of the journal I showed on Wednesdays post and I used the tiniest 2 stamps on the belly bands holding the tiny notelets in place.

Even though I am trying to destash my stash I cant refuse a gift now can I   ????

Two Journals For Sale to help the Charities

 Good Morning All

I have two journals for sale and I have flip throughs on my You Tube channel  -   HERE

I only ask 20 euros each and that covers postage and the rest goes into the charity box.

I help 2 charities here, one is Animal rescue where we got Rico from and the other helps the poor and homeless with food supplies.

Here are pics of the front covers.

There is lots of journaling space and ephemera in envelopes to make it your own or it would make a wonderful gift.

See the video to see full content and how beautiful they are inside.

Traditional Parchment meets Groovi

 Good Morning All

I may have told you a while ago about one of my past Craft Ladies passing away and before she passed, she had asked her daughter to get in touch with me to dispose of her craft stash.  Anything sold she asked that the money be donated to the British Legion.

I sold some stuff to my craft ladies, 215 euro worth.

The last few boxes  with allsorts of bits and bobs went last week.  

Well Nancy enjoyed  original parchment work, that is how we originally met.

And in her stash were some pieces of work part made so I decided to finish them and add to charity box.

Nancy had made the frames so I mounted onto cards, added butterflies and sentiments. Strategically placed butterfly and flower to hide a minor mistake!!!!!

Two beautiful cards for the box.

Tonic Die

 Good Morning All

My local Craft Shop was selling to Tonic dies half price, ex demo stock,  so I bought some for raffle prizes for my Craft Club.

I did test them out first and  here are two cards I made, very pretty and delicate.

I still have lots of peeloffs too so I am trying to use some on envelopes.

I saw this little fella on my dog walk last week, sunning himself on the wire fence.  About 12 inch long, abit hard to see against the bits of grass.
