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.

Welcome Little One

Hi, thank you for dropping by.

We seem to be enjoying a small 'glut' of pregnancies at the moment and I have been busy making new baby cards and knitting tiny cardigans.

This little sweetie is Butterfly Baby from Saturated Canary.

I colored the image with Promarkers and layered it with gold mirri card and papers from a Forever Friends stack and the polka dot paper is from Papermania.

The ribbon, charm and flat backed gems are from my ever growing stash.

I do not think I have shared any of my knitting projects on here before but as several people have been kind enough to ask to see them, I thought this would be a good time to start.

I taught myself to knit less than a year ago so I am not very experienced yet.

Have a good day.



  1. Cute, cute card. Love the design and that sparkly ribbon. I can't believe you've been knitting for less than a year - you must be a natural! xx

  2. Lovely card, I love that Saturated Canary image and you've coloured it beautifully.

    Looks like we both have the same baby pattern, it's such a cute one!

    Thank you so much for leaving a lovely comment on my blog

    Have a great day!
