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.

My Handyman


It's another cold day here, just about everyone I talk to at the moment is really wishing for a little sunshine and to not feel cold for a change.

I have quite a few of birthday's at this time of year so I have a lot of cards to make.  I think most of us have a hard time finding suitable images for the men in our lives and this Mo Manning image is going to get a lot of use over the next few weeks.  He is called Mr Fixit.

I coloured him with Promarkers and WOS, I then mounted him on papers and silver mirri from my stash.



  1. Hi Dionne
    Mr Fixit made me LOL.... that expression on his face! I hope he is not a cowboy builder (LOL). Love this image. Loving the papers you used as well.

  2. This is such a fun image and I love how you've done the background. I could do with a Mr Fixit in this house!! x
