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 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

Photo inspiration for Allsorts

Good Morning All
Allsorts Challenge time again and Brenda, our team leader has chosen a photo for Spring Inspiration.
See Below.

Another box card from me and I love these colours.
All homemade embellishments.

Tiny butterflies, quilled flowers, not sure where the larger lilac flowers came from.

Paper from Making Cards Magazine that my sister gave me.
Inspiration photo - use colours or similar images.

Sponsors are little Claire Design

Digistamp Boutique

I,m suffering with Tinitus again, drives me crazy.
I am trying not to knit or crochet for a while to see if that helps as I feel the muscles in the back of my neck are tight and this causes headaches.
The noise is only in my right ear, very hard to relax and sleep.

  17. Hi Wendy
    Sorry to hear you've got the tinnitus back. Perhaps a back and neck massage would help?
