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

UK Here I come

Good Morning All
Well I am on my way to UK to see Mum and all the family.
Rick is coming up north so I will see them all. 
I  have been making boxes to give as gifts, this one is a Ferrero Rocher box, a small one.
I covered it in material, and a doily. I  lined the inside  with felt.
I used Foamiran flowers and silk flowers to decorate and lots of lace and pearls.

I shall fill with crafty goodies for one lucky person.

This is a giant matchbox, about 16 x 10 cm.

I love making stuff like this, I can really go to town on embellishments and it doesn't matter how much they stick up as it does not have to fit in an envelope!!!

And, I can use some of the lace and flowers I have acquired.
