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.

I hope you had a very happy Christmas.

At Crafty Boots Challenges we are still in the party mood and the current challenge is all about celebrations.

I have designed a wedding invitation and RSVP card for a friend who is getting married in the spring (I thought it best to delete the personal information, sorry about the gaps in the text).  The colour theme of the wedding is purple so the invitation had to have lots of purple and a slash of silver.

Make sure you check out the blogs of my fellow design team members, they have come up with some pretty stunning ideas.

I hope you all have a very safe and prosperous New Year.
