Welcome


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.

Cherry Blossom Geisha Girl

Good morning

Today I have my third, and final,  Sherri Baldy geisha girl image to share with you, this one is Cherry Blossom Geisha.


I have let this lovely Papermania paper do most of the work as it is beautifully embossed and flittered.  I cut around one of the butterflies with my knife so I could tuck the image under it and added some rolled flowers and a sentiment.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted on silver mirri and another of the Papermania cherry blossom papers.

  4. This is another stunner. Love your colour choices and what you have done with the butterfly and your rolled flowers are amazing. Have the designers of these stamps seen your work as you really have done them justice.xx
