I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog, mainly card making but I now have four Grand children, three 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.
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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx
I decorated this box when we got back from Benidorm.
You know when ideas play around in your head at night.
It is a cardboard box that I got some blank stick pins in, it is about 2.5" x 3.5".
I opened it out before I decorated it so that I could make a template from it, if I liked how it turned out, I could make more.
I used Decoupage paper and Glue and seal glue to cover inside and out.
I hot glued pink lace around the outside of the lid,
two lace bows and some handmade paper flowers.
Inside I cut some pink felt with Pinking Shears and made a little book for stick pins.
I hid the press-stud fastening under a button.
I love how it turned out and will make a nice little gift for someone.
It is so cute.
I have just come across this wonderful site called Post Pals which I am going to contribute to and help in any way I can HERE
This was the view from our table where we were having a drink on Christmas eve in Benidorm.
Perfect blue skies and sunshine.
Yes, the two beer bottles are Johns and the Diet Coke is mine (you cant see the large Bacardi!!!!!)
