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

CANDY WINNER & Glassine Bags

Good Morning All

Ok, first we have the winner of my candy.
I gave everyone a number from Facebook and my blog as they commented and I got 34 numbers.

Random Org did the business and -----
From a blog comment
Contact me ASAP before Friday or I shall have to draw another name.

I have  to go to work today Urghhhhhhhh

Please email me before Thursday evening so that I can post out on Friday.
If winner does not come forward I shall draw again, so watch this space.
Now I bet you are asking yourselves, what the heck are Glassine Bags?????
Well, they are used in junk journals or smash books as tuck pockets.
Or, can be used to parcel gifts in.
They have been set as a swap in the Facebook group I am in, so Pinterest got a good hit on Saturday.
Here are my very first two.
They are about 4" x 6".

I made a wrap with corrugated brown card, added brown lace and ecru lace and some pearl trim.

Half a doily for the top with a lace topper with one of my pearl gems.

2nd one is all bits from stash - Pearls trim and purple flower were gifted to me.

I made the ecru flower just by twirling linen fabric and glueing to a circle of card, added a pearl gem and a butterfly to hide a mistake on the gem!!!!

Cant wait to see what the others come up with.
