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 Scrapbook

Many, many years ago I was heavily into cross stitch and tapestry, but sadly the eyesight is not what it use to be and I started to find it difficult to work with 32 hpi fabric. Recently my fabulous hubby treated me to an OttLite for Christmas and it has been wonderful to rediscover my passion for this hobby.

However, about the time the eyesight started to deteriorate, whenever I was wondering around craft fairs, I found myself gravitating towards the rubber stamps and embossing powders, and the next thing I knew I was stamping and making my own cards.

More recently I have got into scrapbooking.  I particularly enjoy making scrapbooks of one-off events, like a special birthday or a wedding.  I have made a number of albums as presents for friends.  I should love to make wedding scrapbooks professionally, but I doubt that anyone would believe how much I spend on some of the embellishments!

I thought I would share with you some of the pages from an album I made of a close friend's wedding, I hope you like them.

I have three other albums in progress so there may be more scrapbook pages in the future.
