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.

Christmas is Coming
In the UK, yesterday was the last posting day for guaranteeing second class post to be delivered before Christmas Day. So, early yesterday there I was, in the Post Office, buying my stamps.
Whilst all of my Christmas cards are different, they are all very similar so I do not think I shall be posting them all here as it could get rather boring. But here a few of them .........
I really love these star and the Christmas tree dies from Memory Box and they feature very heavily in my cards this year. Oh, you will probably notice that I also love using glitter card on my Christmas cards, I really think you have to have a bit of glitter at Christmas.
All of the stamps I have used for the above cards come from the Sugar Nellie range and the sentiments are from Kanban Crafts.
If I have time, I will post a few more of my Christmas cards later.
