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.

This Old House


How are your webbed feet coming along?  I cannot recall the last day it did not rain and this combination of cold and damp seems to be producing a fine crop of coughs and colds.

Dear friends have recently moved home.  Personally I think they are totally insane, but they love buying perfectly lovely houses and transforming them into show houses, I cannot wait to see what they have done to the latest one.

This lovely 'Old House' digital stamp is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  After colouring it with Promarkers I mounted it on Silver mirri and green card.  The backing paper is for my lovely Papermania stack.  The picket fence die is from CottageCutz and the butterfly die is by Cherry Lynn Designs.  The flat backed gems and peel offs are from my stash.



  1. I love this stamp and your colouring is amazing. The house reminds of Spike Milligan's house in Barnet. The fence looks great too. Just sitting here, as am sure you are, listening to the winds - torches at the ready in case there is a power cut.xx

  2. Just gorgeous and the picket fence really finishes it off perfectly.
