Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Wedding Invitation

I made these invitations for a friend's wedding.

The image came from a Forever Friends CD, which I mounted this on silver mirri board and purple pearlised card.  The backing parchment paper has small white hearts on and I backed this with more silver mirri board and wrapped purple ribbon around.  It was finished with 3 purple flat backed gems.


Thank you for visiting my blog, I look forward to reading your feedback on my work. I hope you will visit again.
