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.

Pinwheel Fun

Good morning

As you know, for the past couple of weeks my amazing niece has been staying with us, we have really enjoyed her company and now she has returned home we are really missing her.  Before going she treated me to one of Kim's Stampin' Up classes

I had  a wonderful day and met some very lovely ladies.  On top of which we made some really inspiring projects using the pinwheel die.

We made a little box to hold a Ferrero Rocher chocolate aka the chocolate in the  gold foil wrap which the Ambassador spoils us with.  I thought they would look nice at a summer dinner party - one at each guests place.

We also made a number of cards using Stampin' Up card and stamped sentiments.

The bunting stamps and dies are also from Stampin' Up.

Finally we made a calender and a box with a wrap.

I love this pinwheel die and the class gave me some great ideas for using it.



  1. These are terrific.Loving the papers that you have used on the pinwheels too. Looks like a great class and I wish there were something like that up here!! xx
