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 Wreath


Today I am back with another project featuring butterflies to help my friend Mrs Beez raise awareness of the work of the charity Amy and Friends.  Amy and Friends supports children suffering from Cockayne Syndrome.  The butterfly is the symbol they use to represent those whose lives have been cut short by this illness.  Mrs Beez hopes to raise awareness of the disease and the work of Amy and Friends through her blog.  So please visit her blog and find out more about this important charity.

I created my wreath out of dozens of punched branches using a Martha Stewart punch.  I then added a small red glittered butterfly to the wreath and scored around the card.  Finally I added a big red bow, which was rescued from an empty chocolate box.



  1. Oh my word - this is absolutely beautiful. The wreath looks gorgeous but the little red glittery butterfly takes it to a whole new level. Thank you so much again for your support.xxx

  2. This is lovely, so simple and elegant! Thank you for sharing this beautiful work with us, and a Happy Christmas to you and yours.

  3. Oh wow, this is beautiful!!! The red bow really stands out and I love the wreath! Hugs, Karen
